Apr 01 2015: Words with Jam interviews M J Trow

‘M J Trow has been writing for over thirty years and hasn’t said even a small fraction of what he wants to share as yet. With over sixty books to his credit, including crime and historical fiction, historical biography, true crime and ghosting, his life is never dull and whether he is meeting real new people or imaginary ones, the living or the long dead, he doesn’t mind; it is all grist to his mill. He does relax, usually on the sixth Tuesday of every month and is lucky enough to be able to cruise once or twice a year, when lecturing takes him onto the high seas.’
