Grant Blackwood and James Rollins Write New Sigma Force Adventure Series
Author Grant Blackwood, recently interviewed by online bookseller/owner of VJ Books, John Hutchinson, is knee deep in writing his second book with James Rollins in the new spinoff series based on Rollins' bestselling Sigma Force adventure novels. KILL SWITCH releases from Morrow May 2014, and features Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his working dog Kane, who are sent deep into Russia to infiltrate the well-guarded labs and extract a brilliant scientist. KILL SWITCH has received several starred reviews.
Most know Grant best as Clive Cussler's co-author on the New York Times bestsellers SPARTAN GOLD, LOST EMPIRE, and THE KINGDOM. Or maybe you caught Grant's work as Tom Clancy's co-author of DEAD OR ALIVE, which spent three weeks at #1 on the New York Times list and three months in the top ten. Blackwood also penned a few books in Clancy's Splinter Cell Series using the pseudonym David Michaels.
"While Grant's work for others have topped the charts and been overwhelmingly received by fan and critic alike, the three books he wrote under his own name featuring super spy Briggs Tanner, THE END OF ENEMIES (2001), THE WALL OF NIGHT (2002) and AN ECHO OF WAR (2003) are still favorites of Grant's fans" reports long-time bookstore owner, John Hutchinson. "Briggs Tanner is coming to eBook format real soon and we are talking to Grant about having Norwood Press publish all three in collector hardcover editions. I like the Tanner series so much that I bought a sizable stock of The Wall of Night, books that Grant has graciously stored in garage for us for several years."
Besides being one of the hardest working authors in the genre (he's also working on his own new series), Grant lives in Colorado with his lovely wife, Julie. Julie, a graduate from the New York Institute of Photography is an accomplished photographer. VJ Books is taking pre-orders for signed editions of the new Sigma Force book KILL SWITCH on their website.
