Author Interviews

Mark Grenside, the author, television producer and entrepreneur talks to Crime Writers of Canada award-winning author A.J. Devlin about his novel, Fall Out, and his life and career alongside Hollywood greats.

Mark Grenside, former London UK producer who resides in Malta, is author of critically acclaimed thriller novel Fall Out. He was interviewed by British Columbia crime fiction novelist A.J. Devlin.

Mark Grenside shares his inspiration for Fall Out and chat about his life and career as a thriller author, television and film producer with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and his role as a serial entrepreneur.

Having worked in insurance – specializing in kidnap, ransom and extortion – Mark Grenside switched careers to entertainment. His eclectic career has since included working for Jim Henson and The Muppets©, creating and producing several television series, arranging the $250 million buyout of the Hallmark Channel International, and co-founding Dragonfly Biosciences and two digital companies.

Making the most of his film industry insider knowledge and meticulous research, Grenside penned Fall Out based on the true scandal of a multi-billion-dollar theft and murder. In the adrenalin-fuelled page-turner, an LA screenwriter is killed shortly after completing his latest script for a potential blockbuster movie, which echoes past events. Before his death, he sends the script to a small group of people all connected to a film that had abruptly stopped shooting years before. Producer Marcus Riley sets out on an increasingly dangerous quest to get the movie made, and, alongside the other recipients of the script, escape an assassin from the past.

“I'm honoured and excited to interview Mark in his Crime Writers of Canada debut event,” says Devlin, in anticipation of the hour-long interview. “He is a dynamic, enigmatic, and charming fellow with a fascinating background which made him uniquely suited to tell such a fun, fact-paced, globe-trotting thriller set against the backdrop of the entertainment industry.”

A.J. Devlin is a screenwriter and award-winning author of the "Hammerhead" Jed pro-wrestler/private investigator mystery-comedy series.
