The Books

Throughout the course of his thirty-year career, Wayne Grady has written non-fiction articles and fiction short stories, works of translation, and full books about natural science and scientific history. Wayne has also edited several anthologies of writing, both fiction and non-fiction. His first novel, Emancipation Day, was published in the summer of 2013.

Forthcoming in 2018, his second work of fiction, Up from Freedom, will be published by Doubleday Books. The novel takes place in the U.S. from 1848 to 1850 – from the end of the Mexican-American War to the passing of the Fugitive Slave Act – and follows the lives of two main characters: Virgil Moody, the son of a Georgia slaveowner, and Tamsey Lewis, a freed slave who thinks she has found safety for herself and her family in Indiana. Both discover that the tentacles of slavery reach deeper than their desire for freedom, or the bonds of love.
