Meet the author
Graham Masterton was born in Edinburgh in 1946. His grandfather was Thomas Thorne Baker, the eminent scientist who invented DayGlo and was the first man to transmit news photographs by wireless.
Graham trained as a newspaper reporter, and went on to edit the new British men's magazine Mayfair, where he encouraged William Burroughs to develop a series of scientific and philosophical articles which eventually became Burroughs' novel The Wild Boys. At the age of 24, Graham was appointed executive editor of both Penthouse and Penthouse Forum magazines.
Soon afterwards, Graham Masterton began his career as an author with the publication of The Manitou in 1976. This terrifying horror novel became an instant bestseller and a famous movie starring Tony Curtis and Susan Strasberg.
After twenty-five years writing horror and thrillers, as well as several short stories, Graham Masterton turned his talent to crime writing. The first book in the Katie Maguire Series, White Bones, was published by Head of Zeus in 2012. The books were inspired by Graham's five-year stay in County Cork. He now lives in Surrey, England, where he is a full-time writer. See what Graham has to say about his writing career here.
