This past year he re-released the series, with Boystown 7: Bloodlines debuting in March. Marshall’s a prolific writer, with books that include Desert Run, My Favorite Uncle, and The Ghost Slept Over, to name a few.

Join me for a chat with this prolific author to find out more about his life, writing and plans for the literary future.
