Meet the Author

I love to read and I love to write but of the two, my greater passion is writing. I aspire to write for a living and I'm working, albeit slowly, on completing my Bachelor's degree in Humanities with a concentration in Creative Writing. Interestingly enough the genre I love to read most, paranormal fantasy, is not what I write. I'd love to do it just not sure I have enough creativity for that so my specific genre is still evolving although I've dabbled in poetry and some fiction and non-fiction prose. Now to write...

This story is written by a high school teenager, according to the "Author Afterword". It is exactly what you would expect from this age group. It appears to be a flash-fiction English class story intent on shocking and disturbing the reader. Unfortunately, the twist ending seals its fate as sub-par for the genre. I would rate this story as "Needs Improvement", but it was not a complete waste of five minutes. In summation, it is a 25 page suspense/horror short story. The zombies are a minor plot point, and don't show up until the ending. In the meantime, the reader must suffer through a lot teenage angst: mistrust of adults,obsession over one unattainable girl, and an excessive listing of brand name items that the main character used/owned. The first 15 or so pages are filled with this kind of fluff. The last part is the most interesting, but it is woefully under-developed. Room for improvement. Character description and character development are not the same thing. When the author discovers this difference, I will be interested in reading more of his work. It is not a bad start. It could be better. But, not a bad use of a few minutes for a free story. Apologies for the harsh review. Remember that the truth from a stranger can be more helpful than a white lie from a friend. Keep trying. -AvidReader

>> First effort for the author. If you are an adult just pass it up.

It was overly detailed in the first 14 pages and I ended up skipping pages (I don't care to know what brands someone wears-they're just clothes and it pulls away from the storyline). After the mundane over-explinations though, it picks up and gets interesting. Wish it was longer and started off as exciting as it ended.

I'm sure his stories will only get better with age.

It is a nice short story, on the beginnings of a zombie pandemic starting in three teens hometown as they try to investigate what the news and grown ups been hiding from them. Nicely written setting up caring about the main character, and rooting for him to survive and protect the ones he cares for.
