Gripped - - 10 QUESTIONS -

How do you go about the in­cred­i­ble amount of re­search be­hind your books? It takes me at least two years to write a book about moun­taineer­ing and about half that time is strictly re­search. That in­cludes read­ing ev­ery­thing writ­ten about the sub­ject(s) in what­ever lan­guage it ex­ists, sourc­ing out films, do­ing lots of per­sonal in­ter­views, gain­ing ac­cess to jour­nals and di­aries and gen­er­ally never stopping talk­ing about the project be­cause you never know who might have a story or a fact or a lead.
