John Grisham

Biography

Date of birth: February 8th, 1955

John Grisham's first novel, A Time to Kill, was published in 1987. The author spent three years finding time to squeeze the writing around his day job working at a small law practice in Mississippi.

On the day after he finished A Time to Kill Grisham began writing his second novel, The Firm, about a young attorney "lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared." His second book was a huge success selling 1.5 million copies, being adapted to film in 1993 starring Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman.

Grisham is known for his prodigious output, writing a novel each year since A Time to Kill was published. He is one of the defining legal thriller writers of recent times.
