W&S S2 E1 Michelle Harrison

Chris Stagg presents Words & Sound, the arts and culture podcast on Phoenix FM. In episode 1 of this brand new series, my special guest is award winning best selling author Michelle Harrison. Michelle and I talk about her influences, her approaches to writing and of course her brand new book, part 2 of the Widdershins Trilogy; A Sprinkle of Sorcery. All music played has been specially selected by my guest, and tune in to find out how Michelle does on the returning Words & Sound quiz. Michelle is also a huge fan of horror, magic and folklore and 90s music, so of course is welcome on my show any time!
