Episode 15 - Marcus Brotherton


On this episode of For Real, I learn a bunch from author Marcus Brotherton, whose new book, A Bright and Blinding Sun, tells the true story of an accidental hero. Marcus has written extensively about military heroes, and I loved learning about how he distills huge movements in history into stories that show the triumph of the human spirit. We also discuss the woes and joys of doing publicity for your work and how to maintain a healthy mindset when in the throes of a book launch. This is a must listen if you are an aspiring author!

Marcus Brotherton is a New York Times bestselling author and coauthor dedicated to writing books that inspire heroics, promote empathy, and encourage noble living. Four of Marcus’ books are New York Times bestsellers, five are national bestsellers, four have been optioned for movies, and one is an international bestseller. His books have also appeared on USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly, Wall Street Journal, and ECPA bestseller lists. Born in British Columbia, Marcus earned a bachelor’s degree from Multnomah University in Portland, Oregon, and a master’s degree from Biola University in Los Angeles, where he graduated with high honors.
