Well told story that moved along enriched by sensitive characterisation and great action. Still willing to get to know Travis McGee! Pyruvate and I have a good one and only one who has been designed to provide a quote from the club. Just realised I was wondering what the problem was. Good old fashioned hero. Was a bit worried that it may be dated, but I think it will be fairly timeless. Having been captivated by Lee Child's 'Reacher' series, I took up his recommendation, and am now looking to read the rest.
Superb, a real blast from the past that most modern writers struggle to equal.

No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! So, directly after college, I joined the television business. It was actually a fairly intellectual process. I loved the theater—that was my first love, and in some ways it still is. When you really think about it, all the theater needs is a script and some actors—the rest is fluff.

So, I moved to television, where backstage technicians are absolutely essential. I assumed that would be my job forever. I was with Granada Television for half a career. I just assumed that that was it forever. Before the new management pointed you toward the door, you became the union steward there, right? Shop steward, which was an unpaid job on top of your regular day job. The new management wanted to destroy the union.
They did that by firing a previous shop steward on very specious grounds, and then firing his replacement after one week. So the message was pretty clear. This was my real-life Reacher moment. I said that I was going to be shop steward, and let them try to fire me. I ran unopposed for election. One of the managers took me to one side and told me that I would be out of work next week if I took this. I told him that we would see about that. And I hung on there for two years, fighting this desperate, rear-guard battle. Initially, I was fighting for some kind of common-sense rationality about how they treated the business—because this was a business built up by two generations of talented and dedicated people, built up to an unbelievably high standard.
It was a factory that produced the most marvelous product—and they were vandalizing it, just trashing it from top to bottom. So initially, I was trying to protect the legacy, I guess. And then it was about protecting the actual people who were being just appallingly treated. I felt we could help them out, in terms of outplacement, or we could get better severance deals, better pensions for them, and all of that kind of stuff. It started out civilized, but then there was one particular incident where they revealed that they were not playing by the rules.
They did this thing that was just absolutely illegal, underhanded, and totally unethical. It caught me off guard, gave me a very bad day, because they sucker-punched me. So we would wait for the last one of them to leave the parking lot, and then I had this SWAT team of people—the entire cleaning staff—search every trash bin and bring me anything that looked like a torn-up first draft of a memo. We steamed open their mail.
I had engineers hacking into their computers. They caught on to that after a little while and put keyboard locks on. So then I had the engineers take the hard drives out of the back of the computers, drag them home, copy them, and bring them back. I mean, we would do anything, and it was just hilarious. Also, the legal background helped, because they were doing one thing that was, on a technicality, clearly illegal, misinterpreting the contract term.
I was very upset at that time. Not for myself, particularly, because I always believe that I will survive and move on. So you decided to become a writer. But you were married and had a child. My daughter was just turning fifteen. So yes, we had the family, the mortgage, and all of that kind of stuff.
Legend has it that you went out and bought yourself five dollars worth of pencils and some paper. Okay, so I see that you were really investing in this thing. That was a serious point—because a lot of other guys would buy their own cameras and they would become cameramen, but that was like twenty grand for a camera. Or some people would become video editors, but that was like fifty grand for an editing suite. No, I put two pegs in a bulletin board, and I have it cradled across the middle of the exhibit. I should put it in a Lucite cube or something like that, like a baby shoe.
Bought your pencils and paper with this monstrous investment of capital. Yes, I just sat there and started writing the book.
All of the years I was reading, I suppose he was subconsciously brewing.
