BIOGRAPHY OF GRAY DOURMAN.

Gray Dourman is the pen and performing name of Graham Wallace.

Gray was born in a gathering of shacks in the Cascade Mountains of British Columbia, Canada, called Midway. They called it Midway because it was midway between nowhere and nothing.

His teen years were spent in the suburbs around Vancouver but California was the place he always thought he belonged. As soon as he was old enough to read a map, he was heading south. By 1966 he was driving for a rock band playing the college circuit around San Francisco. Viet Nam and the draft forced him back to Canada and by 1968 he was fronting a poetry, alternative music co-op, ironically named 'Rich and Famous' as he was anything but.

He started writing a weekly column for a small town newspaper, The Grand Forks Gazette. In the 1970s he worked for the Government of British Columbia and wrote for a small weekly called Monday Magazine. Throughout the 1970s he published hundreds of articles for West Coast magazines and newspapers. The 1500 word new age travel story beaten out on an antique, portable typewriter was his bread and butter as he travelled widely in Latin America and South East Asia. In 1976 he published his first fiction, a short story in a Ďmenísí magazine. In 1981 his debut novel, The Bhudda Stone, was published and he turned up in London, England. He just couldnít bring himself to leave.

Over the next twenty five years, he developed a career in the City, writing about finance and banking, systems and technology. In 2004 he returned to writing lyrics and producing music. In 2006 he started writing fiction again and two novels, "A Case in Point" and "Woman of the Century" were published.
