This is an excerpt of an interview of author Andrew Gross in the Huffington Post seehttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/mark-rubinstein/writer-to-writer-a-conver_b_3690255.html
 
Huffington Post question, "What made you decide to become a novelist at the age of 46?"
Andrew Gross answer: "Basically, I got fired and didn't know what I wanted to do. For 20 years I pursued a career in the sports apparel business. Things didn't work out with the last firm. I just came home and said, 'I'm not going back out in the field. I've had enough.'"
 
"At 46, he finished a draft of his first novel, Hydra, which received dozens of rejections from agents and publishers.
One day, out-of-the-blue, he received a call from James Patterson, who had heard Andrew captured women's voices exceptionally well in his writing. Patterson proposed they work together and their collaboration began. In 2006, Andrew wrote his own novel, The Blue Zoneand has had a series of best-sellers ever since"
