What happens when someone who is addicted to books decides to write a memoir? He gets naked. In this Florida Writer Podcast, host Alison Nissen and bestselling author Mark Scarbrough discuss how to make a story compelling for the audience by getting nakedly honest.
Mark Scarbrough is the author of more than 30 cookbooks, has made countless national television appearances cooking up a storm and laughs, and hosts three successful podcasts. But behind all the food, spotlights, and fun lies a deeper story told in his new memoir Bookmarked: How the Great Works of Western Literature F*ucked Up My Life. Mark has been searching for something his entire life. Whether it’s his birth mother, true love, his purpose, or his sexual identity, Mark has been on a constant quest to find out who he really is, with the great Western texts as his steadfast companions. As a boy with his head constantly in a book, desperate to discover new worlds, he can hardly distinguish between their plots and his own reality.
