USA Today bestselling author M.R. Graham is a native Texan who traces strong cultural roots back to Scotland, Poland, and England. A mild-mannered PhD student during the day, Graham transforms at night into a raging Holmesian loremaster and rabid novelist. Though passionate about all scholarship and academia, Graham's training and true love lies with anthropology, particularly the archaeological branch. Graham's writing explores the uncanny, the mystical, the mysterious, and the monstrous, seeking to capture the beauty of strangeness.
