RM Graves is a born and bred Londoner. Due to his mother reading only Asimov during her pregnancy, something she has not done before nor since, he is genetically preconfigured for speculative fiction. He started by reading Andre Norton, followed by his mother's Asimov, and moved on to Orwell and Huxley because they were banned by his Catholic school.
He finished writing his first book before he'd finished reading his first book and secretly wrote all through his schooling. Later he secretly wrote all through his architectural studies and still secretly writes despite having a family and his own illustration company and gallery.
In 2012, he joined the Online Writers Workshop to learn how to write stories that people would want to read. Now his fiction appears in Interzone, Escape Pod and Bourbon Penn, among other places. He is a winner of both the Writers of the Future and Blue Monday Review Ice Nine contests and lives in preapocalyptic Camden Town with his wife and two children.
