Grant shared with the audience that he has published 150 books, written 5 million words and never learned to type. He uses the two finger typing method and occasionally uses one thumb. His wife is his writing partner and has co-authored several of the series he is famous for.

"BZRK" is about 21st-century warfare that takes place on the macro and nano level in a war for the highest stakes: humanity's free will.

"It's a world where if you make a false move, you will lose your mind," Grant explained. He illustrated all his descriptions of plot with a power point program that contained some points that really scared his audience and other points designed to make them laugh. A question and answer period followed the program with a book signing concluding Grant's visit to Glen Crest.

Tuesday evening he traveled to Naperville where he appeared at a local bookstore. The Glen Crest students list him as their favorite author this year.
