Marc Graham & Of Ashes and Dust


The guest this time is Marc Graham--an actor, singer, bard, engineer, Freemason, and whisky aficionado. And writer. Graham just sold Of Ashes and Dust, his first historical novel, to Five Star. Graham talks about the long journey to publication, his approach to researching historical fiction, his writing process and the chance meeting that led to a publication contract.

This podcast includes Marc reading the prologue to Of Ashes and Dust.
