023 - Elliot Ackerman - Author Red Dress in Black & White

In another fabulous partnership with Warwick’s Books, Jeniffer talks to Eliot Ackerman about his most recent novel, Red Dress in Black and White. Eliot is not only a prolific, award-winning writer, he’s also a decorated former Marine.

Today’s episode goes into detail about how and why Ackerman wrote his latest novel, Red Dress in Black and White. You’ll hear how his work is informed by his experience living overseas and how his themes are born out of real world events. This episode is a detailed exploration of his creative process. Oh, and it turns out, Eliot was also in the CIA, and Jeniffer tries to get him to reveal what he may know about a certain agency plot involving a 1980’s Hair Metal band and the Cold War.
