Welcome to my website

I’m a freelance writer based in England. 

I started out in consumer electronics magazines in the days of the Commodore PET, Betamax video recorders and the Sony Walkman. If you don’t know what they are, ask your Dad! 

I mainly write non-fiction books, mostly for children and teenagers. You can check me out on Amazon (other online book-sellers are available). I’m not the only Ian Graham earning a crust from writing, so not all of the Ian Graham books you can find are mine. Mine are the fun ones! In the past 35 years I have written and co-written more than 280 books. You can find some of them here.

A book I wrote for Dorling Kindersley (Robert Winston's Science Experiments) won the 2012 Royal Society Young People's Book Prize.

And this one, The Ultimate Book of Impostors, is a 100,000-word non-fiction book about the lives of more than 100 impostors from the past 500 years - people who assumed a false identity for one reason or another. And, for a change, this book's for grown-ups. You can find out more about the US and UK editions here.

Another of my books for grown-ups is about courtesans, concubines and royal mistresses. It’s called Scarlet Women and it was published in Britain by Lume Books and in the United States by Thomas Dunne Books. You can read more about it here.

One of my children’s books - a biography of Sir Isaac Newton (published by Book House) - was shortlisted for the 2014 Educational Writers’ Award.


And now, much to my amazement, I’m a publisher. I've published a book of crime short stories called Death Duties. It’s available as a paperback book and an ebook. I hope you like it.
