John Grisham Biography
Birthday: February 8, 1955 (Aquarius)
Born In: Jonesboro, Arkansas
Many years ago, the best-selling author of today, John Grisham was toiling away at a law firm, unaware of his looming luck. Before he began penning his legal thrillers, he initially worked as a lawyer in Mississippi and would pen stories during lunch breaks at work as a ‘hobby’. Today, his books have made it to the shelves of best-sellers and he is a celebrity author. Some of his well-known novels include, ‘The Firm’, ‘The Pelican Brief’, ‘The Broker’, ‘The Appeal’, The ‘Theodore Boon’ series and ‘The Client’. These works have concreted Grisham’s standing as the chief of legal thrillers. In his two decades of writing, he has written innumerable novels and has sold over 250 million copies around the world. Some of his novels even procreated hit Hollywood films and some are yet in development. This famous author outlines his novels interminably. Some of the outlines, in his words, ‘take longer to write than the manuscript itself’. Grisham is largely a self-taught writer, compelled by unimpeachable instinct and a critical reading habit, influenced by the works of Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Pay Conroy and John LeCarre. Writing apart, he is also an active member of ‘The Innocence Project’. To learn more about this interesting personality, scroll further for more.
