Graham Lawther was born as the result of a relationship between a middle-aged millionaire and a young barmaid. His mother died when he was ten months old. His father had a family of his own. Graham was not to be a part of that family. At the age of fourteen Graham was a registered drug addict spending lengthy periods in hospital. At seventeen he had joined a terrorist organisation and was arrested on arms charges and sent to prison. Released from prison, Graham was an unemployed homeless junkie, attempting suicide. This is where the grace of God found him A LONG WAY FROM PARADISE.
