The Occult Detective’s #LastWrites with… Michael M. Hughes
Welcome to the seventh installment of LAST WRITES.
The premise is simple. My guests face their final rest, but before Death claims them they are granted a few earthly pleasures, the memories of which will travel with them into the great unknown.
Today’s guest is Michael M. Hughes, a writer of fiction and nonfiction. His debut novel, Blackwater Lights, was released by Hydra (Random House) in 2013, and the sequel, Witch Lights, was released in 2014. Demon Lights, the concluding book in the trilogy, is scheduled for spring 2017. When he’s not writing, Hughes speaks on forteana, the paranormal, psychedelia, pop culture, and other topics, and he teaches regular workshops on the Tarot.
Michael lives in Baltimore with his wife and two daughters.
