PigCake - Youtuber, Creator and Comedian

John Gaspard - A Very Magical Author Indeed...
1:01:52John Gaspard is the author of the Eli Marks mystery series which features a magician as the protagonist. While John is by no means a professional magician, I think it's safe to safe he's OBSESSED with magic by way of an occupational hazard. This was an amazing podcast, as we love both magic and literature--and John combines the two perfectly. Check out his books and podcast here: https://www.elimarksmysteries.com/
