Meet the Author

A child of the movies, I was always consumed by fantastic stories told by others and translated into adventures to be retold by me through the action figure medium. As I grew older, I put the action figures away and moved into the realm of role playing. Though I never outgrew role playing, I certainly don't have the time for it anymore. Since I was eleven years old, I've been pouring almost every ounce of creative energy I have into writing.

I graduated college in 1993 with a degree in computer science. I tried my hand at programming for a couple of years and found it pretty unsatisfying. I later became a partner at a comic book store, where I spent several years. Though it wasn't a financial success, the experience I gained from running the store and the people that I met (many of whom I'm still in touch with today) was priceless. After leaving the store, I settled into a career of teaching. I still teach at a public high school in New York. Ironically, I've picked up computer programming again, which is what I mostly teach.

I've been writing the whole time.

I released my first book electronically in 2010. Forty Leap was a turning point for me in both style and story building. The Book of Revelations, which was written earlier but released later, was sort of a midway point between the writer I was and the writer I've become. I experimented with a very odd style and a story that employed diverse characters and controversial situations.

In September 2010, I released the first installment of Zombies! Zombies! has been a tremendous success for me that came very close to being made into a television series. Since Zombies!, I have written a five part miniseries called Castes and have been working on developing tabletops games, the first of which, ApocalypZe, was published in early 2014. A couple of free stories about some of the characters in ApocalypZe have been released. I have written others and am working on putting them together into a novel.

    Good

    >>This short story is more detail on Dillon's experience during the 'Red Blizzard'. Best to save this one until you finish the book in the Zombies! series regarding the Red Blizzard...it will make more sense and avoid a spoiler or two! Good story and insight into this unusual character!

    Was as an okay short story! This a short story, only about 36pg

    Was as an okay short story!

    This a short story, only about 36pgs.

    Spoiler: starts out fast as many of his novels to , we are focused on a 10yr Boy who has decided his parent are worthless & cant protect him. My first problem with the story is the kid is ONLY 10, not sure how he is gonna be able to fend off walkers & take care of himself. Next he bumps into these "smart walkers" there are 2 working togther & they grab the kid & hide him w/some other people. I am not sure if these smart walkers are zombies or people disguised as zombies to protect the people they found. Will never know because Dillon Waters descides to keep on running.
