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.
Now, 6 years later, a 3rd Zombies! series is due to be released in September of 2016.

Every book the story develops new amazing aspects - I really love it! This is one of the best zombie books/series ever... Really looking forward for the next one - but before reading I really needed to review part 5!
I really can encourage what shayne elizabeth wrote - this author is a great storyteller and the story is also really great!

Hands down, the best yet! Absolutely fabulous! I just 'ate' this book up! (Pun intended!) I have always been a Zombie fan, and out of all the many, many, many book and novels and series I have read about them, this is absolutely the best, most thought provoking and thorough of them all. I actually feel as if I am living in this story, and I believe that even some of the greatest writers in history can't make a reader feel that way. There is a difference between a great story, and a great storyteller, and this author has / is both! Bravo!
