Meet the Author

Survive Entertainment had its early beginnings in 2003, with lots of stories, scribbles, notes and ideas being thrown around. Both Thomas and Angeline, the co-founders, have roots as gamers, so the first stories they came up with they wanted to turn into games. Turned out there was a slight bump in the road: neither of them knew anything about game programming or development. They had art (Angeline) and writing (Thomas) handled, just no programming... and they knew no one with the skill that wasn't already loaded with other projects. Networking issues aside, they continued to refine their stories and began writing them out. The most developed story to-date is called Survive, from where Survive Entertainment gets its name. Survive is their first true brainchild, but is still a work in progress and has been in development since the group's formation in 2007. There is plenty of character design artwork and concept art available to view on their website. Other major stories are in the woodwork, but the other defining tale of theirs is Kellie's Diary. What started as a video series quickly evolved into a graphic novel, and has been steadily created on since its debut in late 2012. Now with 3 entries to the story and much more to come, Kellie's Diary stands to be around for quite a while – as long as Kellie can stay alive, at least. Many other stories and projects are either planned or in-progress. *** Thomas Jenner Originally from Los Angeles, California, currently living in Austin, Texas. Tom's unique imagination runs at high speed, as if entire universes reside within it. He approaches storytelling based on what it would look like as a movie rather than how it should read in a book, which gives his stories an interesting flow - different than the norm but still gripping on the mind. He cites his main inspirations as The Matrix, Resident Evil, Doom, Mission Impossible, Stargate, 24, The X-Files, and The Walking Dead. His most recent hobby is building computers; no word yet if this will speed things along. Angeline Perkins Artist by trade, writer on the side, rock star in the closet. Angeline has a wide spectrum of interests: music, art, cooking, computers/technology and gaming to name a few. She has been involved in digital art and graphic design since 2006. Graduating in 2013 with a BS in Computer Animation and Game Art, she has committed herself to digital art and uses that passion to help bring her projects to life. She helps maintain the visual appeal of storytelling through the use of 3D modelling and painting; her belief is that art tells stories just as well as words do.

It has suspens in it, d I think it was spectacular. But it is kind sad if you think about it. They haf me going for a while. I kept thinking, "Oh snap, she's going to die. But it sad when you are young and you hve to deal with that. She is really smart. And innocent.

I was almost tired of the zombie apocalypse until it came in the form of a diary from a nine year old. Kellie is a great character. Thomas Jenner has written a wonderful book that even those bored and tired with zombies will enjoy.

It was a great book. When she trying to get away from the zombies, it was really detailed. It gave me the erge to be on the edge of my seat. It was so cool how worried she was for her baby sisters. The way she felt about was really exspressed beautifuly. This book is great for anyone who likes suspence.

Of all the zombie you read, none tell the story through the eyes of a child. I enjoyed the book. Love the zombie genre.

Wow. This was going along nicely and then.........it just stopped. What the heck? It was way too short. The writing was pretty good but kind of hard to believe that a fourth grader would be writing it. I guess I will have to check out part 2. Hope it's not as short.

I like finding something different and that’s what I got in Kellie’s Diary. What first surprised me was the way the story was told. Not just that it was presented in diary entries from a third grader. It was that it was in her printed words. It read slowly at first until I got used to the way she printed her letters, then it took off and I read it in about 20 minutes. The ending is rather abrupt, but knowing this is told in parts, I expected that. It’s going to be fun reading more of this series. You follow Kellie as she’s trapped in the school bathroom when the zombies attack. And follow her through her diary entries as she struggles to get home. The author did an excellent job of expressing the thoughts of a young girl. It never felt like an adult trying to write as Kellie. It rang true. I’m anxious to find out if Kellie finds her family? If she finds anyone, so she won’t be all alone.

Good read

This story was very captivating. It didnt seem like a nine year olds pov though. More like a 5 or 6 year old. Fourth graders have better grammer than that. Other than that, it was really good. I wish it was longer... I finished the entire book within 30 minutes of opening it. If this was a movie, i would go see it. This story made me feel bad for the little girl and I can't wait for ut to become a longer series!
