Comment: Grant Blackwood caught the fiction-writing bug at the age of eighteen while reading Clive Cussler's 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 on active duty aboard the guided missile frigate USS
as an Operations Specialist and Pilot Rescue Swimmer.
Two months after leaving the Navy, Mr. Blackwood started the first draft of his first novel, which, as he puts it,
"wasn't good enough to be published but good enough to earn a spot in my sock drawer".
Twelve years to the day after leaving the Navy, Mr. Blackwood received an offer from Penguin-Putnam/Berkley to
his debut novel, The End of Enemies.
The End of Enemies was chosen as finalist nominee for the 2002 Minnesota Book Award in Popular Fiction. His
eagerly-anticipated next novel, The Wall of Night, hit the book stands March 26th.
Mr. Blackwood lives in Minnesota, where he is working on this next novel, the third in the Briggs Tanner series of
suspense-thrillers due out spring of 2003.
