Episode 215 | Sam Lightner Jr. Interview

Today’s episode is a fascinating interview with adventure writer and historical fiction author Sam Lightner Jr. In this show we talk about how Sam’s love of adventure and travel–and his desire to share his experiences with others–led to his desire to become a writer, how we as writers can impart our experiences to others through story, learning about the places we travel to and how every place has something unique to tell, and much more.

Thanks to friend of the show Kyle Mills for introducing Sam to me. Find Kyle’s episode here.
