This is the thirty-eighth episode of "Talking with Authors" by HEC Media and HEC Books. We're a program dedicated to speaking with some of the best selling authors around, covering many different genres.
Today, our author is New York Times Best Selling writer, Tom Clavin. We spoke with him via Zoom in June of 2020 about his recent book "Tombstone: The Earp Brothers, Doc Holliday and the Vendetta Ride from Hell" by publisher St. Martin's Press.
Tom Clavin was a reporter at the New York Times and has written on a variety of topics for prominent magazines like Smithsonian, Golf, and Cosmopolitan. But his series of historical books that focused on the legends from the United States’ westward expansion, helped bring him multiple best sellers. The research and work he did for his final book of the trilogy, “Tombstone”, dispels some of the myths about the OK Corral, but reveals some even more fascinating stories. And the fictionalized print and movie versions of the tales of Doc Holliday and the Earp Brothers almost pale in comparison to what he has discovered. We’ll hear about the more true story of the “Wild West” in today’s conversation with New York Times Best Selling writer Tom Clavin on this edition Talking With Authors from HEC Media and HEC Books.
Our host and interviewer this time, Paul Shankman.
