About Joshua Graham

Josh’s bestselling novel BEYOND JUSTICE is taking the world by storm, one reader at a time. Many of his readers blame him for sleepless nights, arriving to work late, neglected dishes and family members, and not allowing them to put the book down.

BEYOND JUSTICE, THE ACCIDENTAL EXORCIST, and DEATH AND TAXES, have hit multiple bestseller list on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble topping titles by John Grisham, Linda Fairstein, Scott Turrow and James Lee Burke. Rising high on the Barnes & Noble lists, it has topped all but the two most recent titles by John Grisham.

Publishers Weekly described BEYOND JUSTICE as:
“…A riveting legal thriller…. breaking new ground with a vengeance… demonically entertaining and surprisingly inspiring.”

Under a different pen name, Joshua has been published in three Simon & Schuster anthologies. He’s a graduate of the Oregon Professional Writers Masterclass run by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

Joshua grew up in Brooklyn, NY where he lived for the better part of 30 years. There he attended Stuyvesant High School and went on to graduate with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in music performance at the Juilliard School. As a musician (cellist) he's appeared on the stages of Avery Fischer Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and Carnegie Hall. Graham has toured the United States, Canada, Egypt, Israel, South Africa and Jordan, where he appeared as a soloist on national television for a command performance commissioned by Queen Nor al Hussein.

For four years, he lived in Baltimore, MD where he studied and eventually received his doctorate from Johns Hopkins University. During that time he taught as a professor at Shepherd College (WV), Western Maryland College, and Columbia Union College (MD).

Today, he lives with his beautiful wife and children in Southern California, where the unjustly mild climate of “America’s Finest City” justifies its moniker. It was here that he began a decade long career in the IT field starting as a Support Lead and eventually becoming a Director of Operations. All the while writing fiction. Several of his short fiction works have been published by Pocket Books.

A member of the Oregon Writers Network, Graham is a graduate of the Master Classes and professional writing workshops held by Dean W. Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. Dean and Kris and the entire OWN, have played a huge role in his decision to become a writer. Graham feels he owes them a huge debt of gratitude!

Review by: Twisted Rose Publishing on March 09, 2012 :
I'm afraid I have found each of these by Joshua Graham to be nothing more than a lot of self-promotion. My husband attempted to read them also. Neither of us ever got past the first chapter. I rate it a 1 only so it shows up on the Ratings Radar. No ratings don't seem to count in the scheme of things.

Not worth paying money for. If you want to read something murky and ploddy, wait until it goes free. It will. They all have.

My second Joshua Graham short - and it's another good one. He has a knack with words. In response to the criticism about editing errors - I must say, I usually notice such things without even trying. But I guess I must have been so wrapped up in the story that I didn't pay any attention to such things. I didn't go back and "edit" because I'm trying to break myself of that habit; it lessens my enjoyment of reading!

Some of the reviewers wished for this to be turned into a novel. Not me. It was a very intense short story. Very emotional for me - from longing for a bowl of chowder to annoyance, horror, frustration, and, finally, glee. It's perfect just the way it is.

Review by: Crescent Suns eBooks on April 13, 2011 :
Though interesting and certainly of high enough quality to be worthy of a full-length novel of its own, there were so many errors of almost every type within this short story that the enjoyment, at least for me, was completely ruined. Why the author of this story failed to take the teeniest bit of time in order to proof the outgrowth of his own creation is beyond my understanding. It took me little enough time to read this story; certainly it wouldn't have taken much more time than that for the author to make certain this imaginative piece was of the highest standard.

This was the third shorty I have read by Joshua Graham. I really think he could develop this into a novel. There was quite a bit going on in those few pages. I did feel the heart-pounding as I turned the pages, but think it was more like an excerpt than a short story. I noticed a few grammatical errors with this one, too, but overall, Graham has a nice ability to grasp the attention of the reader. Keep it up!

I was on the edge of my seat the entire story. I could relate to Stacey's struggle for freedom--Graham was able to express her thoughts and feelings so genuinely. Not to sound sexist but I had to stop a few times and remind myself this was written by a man!

Fantastic story and awesome ending. I was riveted!

Talking about taking your POWER back!! I was with Stacey every step of the way. I could feel her pain, anger, and fear. You also have me wanting clam chowder...lol How did you get so much in such a short story? Thanks Joshua another "winner" for me. This was a joy to read and well written.

I read this last night and enjoyed very much. It was interesting to watch Stacey pull her courage out when she had too. It may not be a long book but there is a lot of action packed into very few pages. I held my breath and cheered while reading this. Very well written. I am starting to enjoy short stories thanks to Mr. Graham!
