VJ Books Presents Author James Grady!

James GradyJames Grady was born April 30, 1949, in Shelby, Montana. He attended public schools and worked different jobs such as grave digger, rock picker, hay bucker, motion picture projectionist and city crew laborer, all before he graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in journalism.


In 1971, Grady became a staff aide for the Constitutional Convention that rewrote Montana's core document. He subsequently worked as a juvenile delinquency analyst before leaving "the real world" to write fiction. At 24, while living in a converted garage in Missoula, he sold SIX DAYS OF THE CONDOR. That same summer, Grady won a Fellowship to spend a year on the great Sen. Lee Metcalf's (D-Mont.) staff in Washington.

Grady later seized an opportunity to work as an investigative reporter for syndicated columnist Jack Anderson for a little more than four years. He covered politics, crime, drug trafficking, espionage€any story he could get. He left Jack's employment to concentrate on his fiction and movie work.

Unless he's working on a Hollywood project, Grady works from his home, studies T'ai-chi, swims, listens to progressive rock 'n' roll, reads, and goes to movies.

His wife, Bonnie Goldstein, has been a private detective, Senate aide, network TV producer, and a writer. They have two children: Rachel, an Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker, and Nathan, a college student in San Francisco. Grady's sister Jane is a Chicago health care executive. Their current home is in a quiet suburb of Washington, D.C.
