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 the external links link on the main menu of this website.
I also sell my own personal prints mainly of north-east landmarks, some of which can be found on this website under the prints for sale 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.
As a blogger, I currently operate two blogs, The Knowledge of Freedom, which is my personal blog. On this blog I focus mainly on subject matters along the lines of psychology, science, self learning, self-improvement, health and fitness especially regarding hands and wrists, but also regarding mental and physical fitness; I also talk a little politics, a little bit about investing in the stock markets and a lot about writing fiction. Basically this is my personal blog so I write about whatever has come into my mind.
The other blog I run is called Story Maniacs, on this blog I mainly do film and novel reviews, along with creating film and novel lists. So films to watch the novels to read, that sort of thing.
In the past I used to run two further blogs, an investment blog which at its peak had a monthly viewership in the high thousands, and a lifestyle blog which averaged a few hundred reads per post.
I also am active on both Medium and Vocal, the links to my profiles which can be found in the external links link on this website's main menu. I write about many topics on Medium and Vocal ranging from lifestyle to politics to much more, but also frequently publish fiction and poetry on both, the links to many of which can be found under the short stories and poetry tabs on the menu of this website.
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.
