Graeme Maughan is the author of the Planetfall trilogy, Backpackers and Sympathy for the Devil.
Backpackers is Graeme's best-selling book. A disparate group of backpackers are drawn together as two people pass through their lives: Cath Pearson, a 20-year old Australian running from home and a reality she doesn't want to come to terms with, and Jack Wolf, the world's biggest rock star. Ten years after they first meet, Jack tries to find Cath. The people whose lives they affected are ultimately drawn back into Jack's desperate search for Cath. Will he find her, or did Cath's past catch up with her and bring fresh tragedy?
The Planetfall trilogy is military space opera following General Kate Leland as she battles to prevent a war between humanity and alien races, and ultimately fails. Betrayed by her own superiors, she is tried for treason and eventually becomes an enemy of the state, trying to bring about peace in a calamitous war which is threatening the survival of humanity.
Sympathy for the Devil is fantasy comedy, like a collision between Neil Gaiman and Tom Sharpe. 68 year old Lucy is forced into retirement when her boss, Baroness Margaret Thatcher, dies. But soon Lucy is beset by demons and ghosts and zombie cats. The only way she can find peace is to do the worst thing possible: enter a life of politics and come to terms with her true nature.
