Graham Houghton has been writing, on and off for most of his adult life. He’s the author of 38 internationally published books with MacMillan, Thomas Nelson and Wayland as his major publishers. These works have been largely for children up to lower secondary level and include both fiction and non-fiction. His writing for adults has mostly been published in journals, mainly the yachting press, and newspapers notably the Financial Times in London; but that was another life. In 2010 he won the international screenwriting competition, WriteScript, organised out of Los Angeles, California. He has also regularly taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) at Flinders University in Adelaide, where he currently lives.
Following military service, he went into archaeology and spent much of the 1970s carrying out rescue excavations for the Museum of London. Archaeology has been very good to him and has taken him to all parts of Europe, the Middle East and Australia and continues to occupy him in major heritage and environmental issues.
His 'me' time is spent as much as possible in wild and high places, preferably in Canada. He also enjoys sailing and SCUBA diving. When he’s not involved with that, he indulges himself in theatre, as consumer and participant, good food and wine, film and music.
