Wikipedia on author Michael Connelly —
Connelly had planned on following his father’s early choice of
career in building construction and started out at the
University of Florida in Gainesville as a building construction major.
After earning grades that were lower than expected, Connelly went
to see Robert Altman’s film The Long Goodbye (1973) and was
enchanted by what he saw. The film, based on Raymond Chandler’s
1953 novel of the same name, inspired Connelly to want to become
a mystery writer. Connelly went home and read all of Chandler's
works featuring Philip Marlowe, a detective in Los Angeles during
the 1940s and ‘50s, and decided to switch majors to journalism with
a minor in creative writing. He was a student of Harry Crews.
