Author Interview of Robert Grant
On the eve of the publication of Robert Grant’s second book, The Nostrum Conspiracy, Diamante Lavendar interviewed Robert for her blog at http://diamantelavendar.com/.
Here is a brief excerpt from her interview:
- What prompted you to write your book?
As long as I can remember, I wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, I had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While I have spent most of my career as a successful attorney, I never forgot my dream. In the meantime, I pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. I spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Before his death, I promised my teacher I would someday write that book I always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to ensure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it.
