The Body Man is a dream come true for Eric Bishop

Eric P. Bishop grew up in Connecticut, and has lived in the Rockies and the Pacific Northwest, before settling he and his family in South Carolina.

He began his writing career around 2014, and while The Body Man is his fourth completed novel, he’s spent a great deal of time honing his writing craft with novellas, blog posts, all the while while working and reworking his debut novel; one that we all hope will put him on the map.

On today’s podcast, I’m stoked to have Eric talk about WHO his protagonist is, WHERE he got the idea, HOW he is able to perform his wordsmith duties while working full time and raising children, and WHAT he thinks are some of the essential tools to becoming a successful writer. It’s an entertaining 50+ minutes.

If you know Eric, or have followed him (and his 10K-plus followers) on Twitter, then you know he’s a smart, kind, and giving guy. He’s also a funny dude who (inside scoop) likes to collect flags from all around the world.

Please welcome a fellow Carolinian (him: South, me: North), and a guy who, in this show, enjoys getting another debut: being interviewed for the first time as an up-and-coming novelist. Learn more about Eric at

    I think Eric Bishop could be one of the the next great writers in this genre. I think people will be hearing a lot more about him over the next couple years. Great interview!
