Ghost in the Machine–Guest A.J. Hartley

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Host Gail Z. Martin talks with author A.J. Hartley (What Time Devours, Act of Will.)
British born writer A.J. Hartley got his first taste for archaeology touring sites in Greece and Rome as a child with his family. As an English major at Manchester University he took extra classes in Eqyptology and got a job working on a Bronze Age site just outside Jerusalem…

Since then, life has taken him to many places around the world, and though he always leaned more towards the literary than to the strictly historical, his fascination with the past has continued unabated.  You can visit his website at http://www.ajhartley.net/
