Excerpt from Writing Innovations:
WI: Tell us a little bit about yourself...
I’m the author of ten books including Corporate Porn, Bleach|Blackout, Hollywood Ending, and Rock Stars. My latest novel, Blood: The New Red, is now available. I live and write my weekly rock, travel, and NBA columns from New York City.
WI: How many books have you written?
I have ten books published. My first, Corporate Porn, was published with Silverthought Press and had a character named Mickey. It was in this novel that the reader followed Mickey after he left the modeling industry to pursue a life in the adult movie industry. My latest book, Blood: The New Red is Mickey’s tale back into the fashion industry. Blood: The New Red is also published by Silverthought Press.
WI: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I don’t know that I’ve ever considered myself a “writer”; however, I think we are all writers in some degree. I have been fortunate to have publishers print my work and online arenas to write, vent, and share my sense of humor. I write all the time, it’s cheaper than therapy.
LOL! I have to agree that it is cheaper than therapy.
WI: Have you had any classes or hold a degree that aides you in your writing? What developed your creative side?
I have three “corporate” degrees, none of which really aide me in my writing. Reading has developed my creative side and writing style. Early on I adapted styles from my favorite authors, eventually; my own style developed. I hope that when someone reads something I write they can “tell”, oh this must be written by David S. Grant; I like to mix humor and dark undertones, the perfect elixir for me and my voice!
