Graham Brack hails from Sunderland and met his wife Gillian in Aberdeen where they were both studying pharmacy. After their degrees Gillian returned to Cornwall and Graham followed. This is now called stalking but in 1978 it was termed “romantic”. They have two children, Andrew and Hannah, and two grandchildren, Miranda and Sophie. Gillian and Graham now live in Northamptonshire.
Graham’s foray into crime writing began in 2010 when he entered the Crime Writers’ Association’s Debut Dagger competition and was highly commended for Lying and Dying (previously titled The Outrageous Behaviour of Left-Handed Dwarves), in which the world was introduced to Lt Josef Slonský of the Czech police. Slaughter and Forgetting followed. Both have been re-published by Sapere Books along with the third book in the series, Death On Duty. The next two books in the series, Field of Death and A Second Death, followed in 2019.
In 2014 and 2016 Graham was shortlisted for the Debut Dagger again. The earlier novel, Death in Delft (previously titled The Allegory of Art and Science), is set in 17th century Delft and features the philosophy lecturer and reluctant detective Master Mercurius. Sapere Books will publish it in 2019.
