This month All Things Considered has been been talking with authors who write in or about New Hampshire.

Today’s guest writes in the Granite State, but her book is definitely not set here.

It’s a dark fantasy novel set in an alternate version of 14th century England, with sorcery, battles, and plenty of blood.

It’s called Elisha Barber, and the author is E.C. Ambrose, who joins host Brady Carlson in the studio to talk about the book.
