C.S. Grady


I have written 200 of these and none have been read by anyone but me. I have a hard time distilling my life to a few short sentences. So I have decided to just ask you to trust that I am both real and interesting enough you will want to read something I have written.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
As my father was in the Air force I grew up all over the place, and I think being exposed to so much so early in my life made me more aware of the world we live.
When did you first start writing?
I can remember writing stories as early as seven or eight. They were bad, but a few of the base concepts are still rattling around in my head. Maybe sometime I'll get them out in a way that is as cool as I remember them when I was seven.
