New York Times bestselling author, David Baldacci wasn't always so successful. He may have over 18 bestsellers including his newest novel Deliver Us From Evil but that was not without the 15 years of rejection he experienced while miserable working as an attorney in a large firm.

In our interview with Baldacci today, he explains how he almost gave up before his first sale, what his writing schedule is like, his charity work and his tips for aspiring writers.
