Tony Schumacher – Funny & Inspiring Writer – Joined Up Writing#69

it’s episode 69 with guest Tony Schumacher. Tony writes the John Rossett Alternate History series set in a 1940’s where England lost the second world war. Aside from being a fantastic writer, Tony is a funny and inspiring bloke and you’ll be smiling throughout the interview.

In addition to being published by Harper Collins, Tony has written for The Guardian, the Huffington Post, and various magazines. He can often be heard on BBC or LBC radio, and he has made several films for the BBC’s Politics Show. Prior to writing, Tony’s been a stand-up comedian, an actor, a policeman, a taxi driver, a bin man, and he sold underwear in the Caribbean – this comes up in our chat, as you’ll hear!

The Darkest Hour and The British Lion were the first two books in the John Rossett series and the third in the series – An Army Of One has just been released. I always love talking to Tony and this was another cracking chat that I know you’ll enjoy. Follow Tony on Twitter and take a look at his Goodreads page here.
