About the Author
Lee Emerick born July 1982, is an author based in Staffordshire, England.
Father to Libbi and William, married to Alison Emerick Lee enjoys writing in the little spare time he has available.
Keenly interested in the genres of Sci-Fi and Horror, Lee is looking to expand his horizons and move into the Crime/thriller genre with his latest work ‘The Mind of a Killer’.
Born in Harlow, Essex, Lee moved to Leek, Staffordshire at the age of 4.
Schooled at Leek High School then subsequently Leek College Lee has been in continuous professional employment since then.
After several failed attempts at writing a book, Lee finally succeeded in 2009 when he released Super Nova. A book of the Sci-Fi genre, Lee took the inspiration from his favourite films and based the characters entirely on his friends.
Please with the outcome of Super Nova, a sequel was soon to follow called Mechanical Jihad. Influenced by the Dune series Lee had so enjoyed it was written as a tribute to the series as well as to compliment Super Nova.
Moving on from Sci-Fi, Lee entered the Horror genre with Extinction Theory in 2010. Please with the outcome and popularity with the book Lee then decided to take Horror a step further and enter the Post Apocalyptic sub genre of Horror.
After publishing 20 Years After The Zombie Apocalypse and the success of strong sales and positive reviews, Lee quickly followed it with the sequel Survival After The Zombie Apocalypse which has also been very successful.
Looking to explore other genres Lee is currently writing a book by the name of The Mind of a Killer which will be an entry into the Crime/Thriller genre. Also in the pipeline is a return to Sci-Fi but of a Post-Apocalyptic sub genre currently titled Solar Apocalypse which will explore the end of earth and the survivors left behind.
Genres of interest go without saying really, Sci-Fi, Horror and more recently crime.
Zombies in particular hold my fascination!
The Dune Series - to be fair it is just awesome.
Looking after the kids (not always through choice!).
Entertaining the wife (hard work at times).

Mind of a Killer by Lee Emerick
The book details the acts of a demented serial killer named “The Hacker.”
Ian Rivers is a cop with psychic abilities. He can see through the eyes of killers. This ability enables him to have an enviable record of success in the apprehension of the worst criminals.
Karl, Ian’s partner, is pulled into the maelstrom that surrounds Ian’s interaction with the notorious “Hacker”. Karl demonstrates admirable loyalty to his good friend and partner, Ian.
Ian’s psychic episodes leave him emotionally vulnerable and drained. The toll of chasing killers mounts up. Ian’s mental state is a large part of the book’s impact.
Mr. Emerick portrays his characters vividly. The settings could be fleshed out a bit more. For me, the erratic nature of the protagonist made it difficult for me to buy into the story line.
In some ways delving into the mind of the “Hacker” is akin to scuba diving in a septic tank, murky, merciless and vile. This is most definitely a psycho thriller.
