It’s episode 171 and a chat with Sean Lusk author of historical mystery debut The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesley. I spoke to Sean about persistence and his long journey to publication, his writing process and why we should all believe in the magic.

Sean is winner of the 2015 Manchester Fiction Prize and the 2017 Fish Short Story Prize for Dead Souls, inspired by a visit to Gogol’s house in Moscow. Much of his career has been spent working as a civil servant in the UK government and he’s lived and worked in England, Pakistan, Egypt, South Africa and, more recently, in rural Greece. His debut novel is The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesley and is out everywhere on June 9th.
