EXTRA: Author Interview #2 with Dan Cross: The Art of Historical Fiction



Dan Cross is a writer, amateur historian, business owner, and shortlisted for the 2018 Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Award for best unpublished work. Dan’s soon to be debut novel, Caesar of Mercenaries, is represented by Bravo Blue literary agency and who is on a quest of her own to find a publisher for Dan.

Dan joins Frank in this Extra Episode to discuss the fine art of historical fiction. Topics covered include their own shared love of history, the challenges and rewards of crafting historical narratives, books holding their own in the “new” media age, and the resurgence of the humanities thanks to podcasts.

The characters, plot, and narrative of Caesar of Mercenaries is still a very closely guarded secret. During the show Frank attempts to pry teasers from Dan on his wonderful work and what future readers can expect.
