This podcast is off the beaten path from the usual wealth topics, but it’s no less a story of perseverance and vision. It’s a thrill to talk to my friends about their successes. In this case, it has been a long time and a lot of hard work in the making.

Born and raised in Watertown, NY, JIM HARBERSON (TWITTER, INSTAGRAM) has a Masters in Religion and was a lawyer before embarking on his writing career. He has published many horror and sci-fi stories including podcast projects for “Chilling Tales for Dark Nights” and the co-writer of the graphic novel, Stay Alive. Against that backdrop, his new horror compendium is out now via MARKOSIA and can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

We catch up on a variety of topics surrounding the book, his writing and growing up in the Horror/Sci Fi genre.

We also talk about his foray into graphic novels. His co-authored (with me!) “Stay Alive” was nominated for the prestigious Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards (Category 22:  Best Graphic Novels or Collections)
