Featured Interview With Grady P. Brown
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am a science fiction, fantasy, and superhero author with high-functioning autism. I am also a passionate pit bull owner with two sweet and handsome pit bulls named Wally and Fitch, who I affectionately nickname “The Boo Bears”. I was raised in Southern California and have lived there ever since. In addition to my pit bulls, I also have a miniature poodle named Piper and she is the alpha of the pack. My two pit bulls are being dominated by a small, elderly poodle! I also have a desert tortoise named Speed, who I have had since I was five-years-old.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I have always had a story to tell for as long as I can remember. I started telling my stories through pictures I drew on tablets my parents provided. When I was in sixth grade, I started to tell my stories through words instead of pictures. This was also when I first developed the ambition to become an author. Also, I have been working at libraries since I was in middle school so books have always been a part of my life.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite author would be Christopher Paolini, author of the Inheritance Cycle. Because of him, I not only chose fantasy to be my favorite genre, but he also was the one who inspired me to become an author myself.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book “The War of the Gilded Beasts”, is about a feud between House Magnus and House Sylva. The main characters from House Magnus are Kemrin, Caelum, Daegar, Vaeron, and Ymir. Kemrin, Caelum, Daegar, and Vaeron are quadruplet brothers while Ymir is their little sister. All five are budding sorcerers and dragon riders. The Magnuses also possess the Imperial Sword of Power known as Gramfyre, which can only be wielded by the descendants of its creator. The main characters from House Sylva are Emperor Autem, his triplet sons, his witch wife, and his infant granddaughter. To counter the Magnuses and their dragons, the Sylvas engage in blood magic and dark alchemy, resulting in the creation of mindless, unholy monsters. Both sides command large feudal armies that clash with each other. The ultimate prize of their feud is the Imperial Throne. Whoever holds the Imperial Throne has absolute power over an empire that consists of nine ancient kingdoms.
