W.D. Foster-Graham is a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  He received a B.A. in psychology from Luther College, and he was an original member of the Grammy-Award-winning ensemble, Sounds of Blackness. He has also been recognized by the International Society of Poets as one of its “Best New Poets of 2003,” and is a guest writer for journalist/author/entertainer Wyatt O’Brian Evans (wyattevans.com).

His passion for reading and writing was inspired by his father, who read voraciously.  His tastes in writing run to family sagas and M/M romance, seasoned with his own brand of African-American flavor–at the end of the day, it’s all about the love.  He shamelessly admits to a love of romance novels, whodunits and classic movies of old Hollywood.  He was also inspired by the late novelist E. Lynn Harris, who believed that an author should write the novels he/she wants to read.

When not in laptop writer’s mode, he loves travel on the open road, nature walks and time with his husband and son.
