I am excited to share a brand new episode of Overflowing Bookshelves, featuring the hilarious and insightful J. Trevor Robinson @jtrevorrobinsonauthor, author of THE MUMMY OF MONTE CRISTO. It was so fascinating to learn about how he adapted and breathed new life into a classic! If you write historical fiction, or if you’ve ever struggled with balancing research and writing a draft, you definitely do not want to miss this episode.

‍

When J Trevor Robinson was young, he received a well-worn stack of mystery and horror novels from his older brother, and it instilled in him a lifelong desire to be an author. Heavily influenced by Stephen King's scares, Jim Butcher's action scenes, and the larger-than-life characters in Ayn Rand's books, he blended those influences with classic literature and pulp horror to write his Immortal Works debut THE MUMMY OF MONTE CRISTO. He has also self-published a young-adult horror novel THE GOOD FIGHT, and was published in the Amazon #1 bestselling horror anthology SECRET STAIRS as the sole romance story in the collection. He lives in Toronto keeping the redhead gene alive with his wife and daughter, born Friday the 13th.
