Andrew Grant is the author of the David Trevellyan novels, a three-book thriller series that revolves around a professional spy. His latest book, RUN, is a stand-alone thriller that introduces readers to computer consultant and software engineer Marc Bowman --- who, unlike Trevellyan, is a layperson like you and me. When Bowman’s world falls apart, he finds himself in more danger than he ever could have imagined, to the point where he can no longer tell friend from foe. In this interview, Grant discusses why he chose to make his new protagonist so relatable --- including the challenges he faced in getting Bowman realistically out of sticky situations. He also talks about the surprising parallel between Bowman and pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, and why writing a book at the same time that his wife [Lady Emily author Tasha Alexander] was writing her own was less hectic than you would think.
