Graham Oxley

Graham Oxley was born in 1945 in Weston-Super-Mare and, aside from a year of hitchhiking around Europe in his late teens, has lived there for his entire life.

He went to the local grammar school and left at the age of seventeen with two O-levels to his name. His academic failure at school might have been due to the fact that his mother became ill when he was about seven years old. She died of cancer when he was nine years old. He likes to think that the lack of her guiding hand through his school years was the reason he did not pass exams. However, he does concede that it was probably due to his own laziness and his failure to ever do any homework which caused him to leave school with no qualifications.

He worked at a variety of jobs after leaving school but never found anything which he really liked. Instead, he began studying at home and eventually gained a law degree at a local college. Finally, after several years, he qualified as a solicitor and ended up practising in his home town for about twenty years, before retiring at the age of sixty-nine. It was only then that he began writing seriously and was able to find the time to finish the novel which he had started writing about fifty years before. It's never too late.
