Meet the Author

I live just outside Raleigh, North Carolina. I've only been professionally published once, in last fall's edition of Flashquake online magazine, but I hope it's the start of something long term. I'm happily married, and I'm the father to two beautiful little girls, ages five and two, who will never be allowed to date boys, drive cars that are transporting boys, nor ride in cars to places where boys are present, or wear non-Amish-spinster-approved clothing in front of boys. I love horror movies, rhythmic noise, peanut butter, and the Munsters, not necessarily in that order. Please feel free to contact me if you want; I'd love to hear what you thought of the book. My e-mail address is zombieapocalypse at earthlink.net. Thanks for reading.

    Odd

    The story never explained itself properly. The character development was near nonexistent, even for the main character. At best they had the most superficial of facades. The reader never learns enough about anyone to care about them. There was potential, but the story was lacking in originality, plot, and character development.

    The plot: A small cult obsessed with Armageddon takes up residence in an abandoned Indian village somewhere in the swamps of Louisiana. The group rescues an "angel" who was stuck in the mud. Their cult leader (Reverent or Reverend? Apparently interchangeable here.) decides that the angel is a sign to commit mass suicide in order to go to heaven. The main character is supposed to ensure everyone dies. (Does this sound familiar to anyone else?) Meanwhile, not everything goes according to plan. Finally, the reader is left with the typical "twist" ending.

    I had a lot of questions regarding the angel. None of them were ever answered. For example: Is she alive or dead? Where is she from? Why was she in the swamp? What does she want? Is she really an angel?

    There were a few oddities in this story that did not include the angel. Is Reverend or Reverent the church leader'wws name? What is the point or moral? Does it matter?

    It could have been better. This author needs to focus on the plot and characters together.
