Meet the Author

I've written one novel called Milkshakes and Gamma Rays. I'm currently working on a sequel to it, as well as a story of the paranormal called Lake Zoe. Both are due to be finished sometime this century.


My favorite books include the Talented Mr. Ripley, the Basketball Diaries, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Bell Jar, and Breakfast of Champions.

    Zimmerman creates an intriguing tale centered around protagonist

    Zimmerman creates an intriguing tale centered around protagonists Brie and Naomi. They're witty, realistic, and have a lot of dimension to them. What I admired about the two characters were their refreshing sarcasm and how they explained themselves in depth while simultaneously keeping the subject matter comical. The story line informs the reader about multiple topics and urges you to contemplate life while still keeping you transfixed on the story's content. Overall, it was a good read and my only qualm about the story is that I felt it could have went a little more in depth on different aspects of the war and the girls' lives, but I suppose that is coming in the sequel (which I am honestly anticipating). If you're someone who enjoys edgy characters, deep-thoughts, unique situations, dislike cliches, and LOVE getting ideas for kicka** milkshakes,then you should totally get this novel.
