About me

Hi. I’m an author and I live in Surrey near Horsell Common, where the Martians landed in War of the Worlds.

I have a proper job as a Sustainability Manager for a large social housing provider. Environmental issues are close to my heart, and themes of environmental protection, or of nature representing the inner turmoil of a character, often crop up in my writing.

This blog is all about my writing. I write under two names, “astrotomato” is the pseudonym I use for science fiction. General fiction is published under my real name, Graeme Maughan. You can probably tell from this that I am heavily influenced by Iain (M.) Banks.

I am an occasional photographer, and you can view my photos on Flickr. I also talk a lot of nonsense on Twitter.

I have a (rarely updated) Tumblr account here: astrotomato.tumblr

Or visit the Google+ page for my space opera trilogy, Planetfall.

Pop by, say hello, share a joke.

    • Hi Dominique, happy to hear you liked the book!
      What would you like more of? Tales from the Backpackers in the book, or more from me generally?

    Hi Graeme, as I’ve only read Backpackers so far and I’m addicted to traveller stories I would love to read more of those. However, I really like your writing style and will definitely read your other books as well, so I’ll let myself be surprised 🙂
