Author Bio: Graham Salisbury

Author Bio: Graham Salisbury

Graham Salisbury comes from a hundred-year line of newspapermen, all associated with Hawaii’s morning paper, the Honolulu Advertiser (now the Honolulu Star Advertiser). Although a career as a newsman could have been possible, Salisbury chose to imagine rather than report. His books, including Blue Skin of the Sea, Under the Blood-Red Sun, House of the Red Fish, Eyes of the Emperor, Shark Bait, Jungle Dogs, Lord of the Deep, Island Boyz, Night of the Howling Dogs, and the popular Calvin Coconut series have been celebrated widely with praise and distinguished awards. Graham grew up on the islands of Oahu and Hawaii. Later, he graduated from California State University, Northridge, and received an MFA degree from Vermont College of Fine Arts. He once surfed with a shark, got stung by a Portuguese man-of-war (several times!), and swam for his life from a moray eel. Believe it or not, he didn’t wear shoes until the sixth grade and didn’t see snow until he was nineteen. He now lives with his family in Portland, Oregon.
