Hey I'm David Graham, I'm a Sci-fi and fantasy writer, blogger and photographer based in the north-east of England. Due to having a torn scapholunate ligament in both of my wrists I write using voice dictation software.
I have two degrees, both attained at Northumbria University, one is in Finance and Investment Management and the other is in English Literature and Creative Writing.
As a writer of fiction, I have won two local to the north-east short story competitions, and have been shortlisted numerous times in internationally open short story competitions. I am currently working on a time travel novel called Final Days, and am actively seeking a literary agent.
I also now and then write poetry, and have won one national poetry writing competition.
As a photographer, I have been published numerous times in magazines both in print and digital, and have sold thousands of images globally through stock photography websites – to view the images I have available on stock photography websites see these links:
I also sell my own personal prints mainly of north-east landmarks, some of which can be found on this website under the canvases section, but the majority of which can be found available for purchase on Photo4me (see external links in the main menu for the link).
I also have experience as a wedding photographer, a portfolio photographer, a studio photographer, a pet photographer and more. At current due to the extent of my injuries I am unable to work as a photographer, though hope this will change one day in the future. Watch this space.
In terms of writing, I am an active writer on both Medium, Quora, and Vocal. I write about many topics ranging from lifestyle to politics to self-help to fitness to relationships to much much more,. I also frequently publish fiction and poetry on both. The links for creative writing can be found by clicking the short stories and poetry tabs on the menu of this website.
Also, I run a blog called The Knowledge of Freedom, which operates across numerous platforms. The purpose of The Knowledge of Freedom is to share knowledge that hopefully helps provide a better understanding of the world in which we all live. The reason being, I truly believe that understanding the world and why it is the way it is is the key to happiness.
Finally, before I ventured into creative writing, I used to operate an investment blog. As part of this, I wrote on Stockopedia and combined through my blog and Stockopedia I had a viewership of over half a million for the three years which I was active.
In terms of my personality, I am the type of person that believes that the key to life is hard work. Hard work, hard work, and more hard work. Also I am a firm believer in never giving up and they're always being hope so long as you don't give up.
