About this author

MR Graham is a native Texan who traces strong cultural roots back to Scotland, Poland, and England. A mild-mannered Latin teacher during the day, Graham transforms at night into a raging Holmesian loremaster and rabid novelist.
Though passionate about all scholarship and academia, Graham's training and true love lies with anthropology, particularly the archaeological branch.
Also, steampunk and vampires.

I have not died, my friends. I know it has been some time since I last blogged. The fact is that, like many blogging folks, there are times when I simply have no idea what to write about. Tragically, that hasn’t changed.


I have not been idle, though.


I have not been writing blog posts, but I have been writing fiction, digging into The Morawith a vengeance and tinkering with a few other budding id...

M.R. Graham is on page 183 of 384 of Dr. Mütter's Marvels: Have to take issue with the author's assertions about women's clothing of the early 1800s. As a reenactor, I know for a fact that reports of ludicrously restrictive clothing are later inventions, and are just flat false. Additionally, cotton is highly flammable, but wool is actually flame-retardant. It's almost impossible to light a woolen apron. Those few paragraphs are in need of a fact-check.

Flynn's story is getting deeper, and it feels as though it's beginning to wrap up. I know there are more books coming, though, so perhaps "come together" would be more accurate than "wrap up." We are digging further into our protagonist's motivations...more
