Glasgow-born novelist Graham McNeill studied architecture and building surveying at the Glasgow Caledonian University, graduating in 1996. But a short spell working in an architects office in Glasgow made him realise that his interests lay elsewhere. A speculative application for a staff writer job with the Games Workshop changed the direction of his career.
In 2000 he moved to Nottingham to work for Games Workshop, writing novels and codexes for their White Dwarf and Warhammer 40,000 games. He has written a number of science-fantasy novels for the Black Library imprint, as well as a number of books Games Workshop. He was written numerous short stories, and collaborated on two comics.
He lives in Nottingham with his partner and young son.
