James Grady interviewed by 'Kiss and Thrill'

MysteriousPress.com author James Grady has a fantastic interview up with Diana Belchase at Kiss and Thrill. Here's an excerpt: 

Diana: You hit the best seller list the first time out of the gate with Six Days of the Condor. How did success impact on you as a young writer? If you had to do it all over again and could choose, would you want success at such an early stage or would it have been better a little later on? Did you understand what an incredible, lotto-winning miracle, that kind of success was at that time?

James: Condor swept me up like the tornado in The Wizard Of Oz. Living in a Montana shack, I knew how incredibly lucky I was. My major fear was that I would blow or betray my luck. Condor gave me a chance to do what I always wanted – write and publish fiction – plus I didn’t want to be some kind of footnote burn-out jerk. After Condor, I worked as a U.S. Senate aide and a muckraking reporter making far less than my fiction work because I wanted to use my life to do more, learn more. I lived like a blue-jeaned grad student, worked as hard and as fast as I could, 12 hour days. I think success so early let me grow into being the kind of writer who – I hope – has earned it. Of course, now I’d love another tornado like that one!
