About Graham Higson

I live in an outlying Pennine village and share this blustery environment with a growing collection of books, my understanding wife and a workshop piled high with offcuts of oak. Our two grown-up children are among my best friends.

I've been interested in writing since I was at primary school and began interviewing celebrities when I was 15, going on to write professionally on many different subjects for various magazines over the following years. Oak Seer: A Supernatural Mystery was the first of my published novels, followed by Flither Lass, a historical novel set during the First World War. My fictionalized memoir How Much for a Little Screw? – Tales from behind the counter and its "equel" All Mod Cons are based on many years working as a hardware man. My biggest critic is my technical manager, Gerald the cat.

I'm a member of the Open and University College Falmouth alumni, and my hobbies include woodworking, reading, watching lots of screen drama, and publishing books for the Walmsley Society. Oh yes, and searching for that elusive moment of self-discovery. Hmm, no sign of it yet.

Review by: Julie Haigh on April 20, 2014 :
Some great moments.

This isn't one of my normal genres; I downloaded this book because I know the author personally and so I was interested (and nosy!) to read his book. This is a good length-not too long or too short, well-written-not too brief and not filled with too many unnecessary details. Chapters are just the right length. This book is quite multi-faceted: You have Relationships, Crime Intrigue, Psychometry, (I hadn't heard of this before but it is a known phenomena as I found when I looked it up), History and you get to learn about wood processes eg. Fuming (among many others). I certainly felt I had learnt something at the end of reading this novel, not just read a story. My partner works in engineering patternmaking and in this book there were many things about wood that even I hadn't heard of before. I liked the historical chapters in the book. The writing flowed well from one era to another, it didn't feel disjointed at any point. Congratulations on your book Graham, I would read more.
