Graham Fitzgerald wanted to become an author from a young age, and became a journalist as means of achieving this.
Forty years later, after distinguished careers as a print and TV journalist, working for the BBC, ITV, and Sky News, he has finally completed his first novel: Astraia: Spirit of Defiance.
The book, which is aimed at children and young adults, is set in Ancient Greece at the time of the Trojan War. It features monstrous pirates, an epic battle for power, and an intrepid heroine with an indomitable spirit and a true lust for adventure.
Graham lives in Richmond, Surrey with his wife and youngest son William.
