This episode is an interview with the author and historian, Nick Page. Nick, who describes himself as a 'writer for hire', has been a freelance writer for nearly twenty years, publishing over seventy books including biblical histories. We discuss the disciplines required to write history, including historical fiction, tips for placing the reader firmly in the scene you are writing, and advice for the new writer. Nick has a wealth of experience which he brings to this conversation. I have been looking forward to interviewing Nick for a long time, he is witty, honest, and knowledgeable, and it was a joy to speak with him, I hope you find our conversation entertaining and enlightening.
