James L. Nelson is a very prolific author of both fiction and non-fiction pirate books. All the way from Vikings through the American Civil War, he's got some unique takes on how pirates affect the world around them.
Not to mention great storytelling and a deep knowledge of sailing ships. We'll talk about his time on the Golden Hind after leaving the Hollywood grind. And how his idea of becoming a responsible adult was to become a novelist.
Really fun talk with a guy who obviously loves the sea and the people and things that float on it.
Under The Crossbones is a podcast all about pirate culture. Your host Phil Johnson (comedian, musician, and pirate geek) interviews the most interesting people in the pirate subculture: Actors, Authors, Historians, Musicians, Artists, Festival Founders, Clothing and Prop Designers, Treasure Hunters, Archaeologists, and more.
