Spartan Gold: A Fargo Adventure (CD-Audio)
Read by Richard Poe
Grant Blackwood caught the fiction-writing bug at the age of eighteen while reading Clive Cusslers The Mediterranean Caper, and spent the next four years working in different styles of fiction before settling on novel-length work.
Mr. Blackwood is a U.S. Navy veteran, having spent three years active duty aboard the guided missile frigate USS Ford as an Operations Specialist and a Pilot Rescue Swimmer.
Two months after leaving the Navy in July 1987, Mr. Blackwood started the first draft of his first novel, which as he puts it, wasnt good enough to be published, but good enough to earn a spot in my sock drawer. It took me several more years of rewriting before I realized the publishers and agents whod been saying no were saying no for a good reason.
Twelve years to the day after leaving the Navy, Mr. Blackwood received an offer from Penguin-Putnam/Berkley to buy his second novel,The End of Enemies, which hit the stands May 8th.
Mr. Blackwood is 36 years old and lives in Minnesota, where he is working on this next novel, the second in the Briggs Tanner series of thrillers, which is due out in Spring/Summer of 2002.
