TIH 248 Stephen Kozeniewski on Lessons from the Army, Getting Published, and Silverwood The Door

In this podcast Stephen Kozeniewski talks about lessons from the army, getting published, Silverwood: The Door, and much more.

About Stephen Kozeniewski

Stephen Kozeniewski lives in Pennsylvania, the birthplace of the modern zombie. During his time as a Field Artillery officer he served for three years in Oklahoma and one in Iraq, where, due to what he assumes was a clerical error, he was awarded the Bronze Star. He is also a classically trained linguist, which sounds much more impressive than saying his bachelor’s is in German.
