Tv series 'Private Eyes', interview with author Gare Joyce: 'Write what you know'
/ Interview - 08 August 2022
Private Eyes Is on Global Tv Also in streaming
G.B. Joyce is the author of The Code and The Black Ace, the first two instalments of the Brad Shade mystery series. The books have been adapted for a television series premiering May 2016 on Global TV and starring Jason Priestley.
'The Code' inspired the five-season renewed TV series 'Private Eyes'. When did you decide to write this novel?
Honestly it’s the first time I ever tried writing novel-length fiction. I had published my first short story a few months before—ESPN The Magazine had published an all fiction issue edited by Dave Eggers, an award-winning writer of both novels and journalism. He brought in a bunch of famous writers — I covered hockey for the magazine and my bosses told me I could take a shot at writing a short story for the issue. It was crazy but I was the only sportswriter who made it into the issue, a story based on a NBA player who went missing in Africa during the 70s. It was the most exciting thing to ever happen in my professional life—my first fiction appeared in a magazine with a subscription of two million readers. Writing a novel was the next thing. I climbed a hill and then looked for a mountain. A television series ... I wouldn’t allow myself to dream that.
