Mohammad Khamil Khalid also known as M.D Khamil was born on the 3rd of May 1990, in Brunei Darussalam a small country in Borneo island situated in between two of east Malaysia's states Sabah and Sarawak. He is the youngest child among three children of Khalid and Norhemiemah's marriage and never had any experience in writing before.
First schooled in one of the most busiest district in Brunei, where the capital city is located at Brunei Muara district in 1996. Khamil finished high school in 2008, where he repeated a year from failing his 'O' Level exam. A year later after that, Khamil went to continue his studies in computing in the year 2012. He graduated in 2014 and scored 4 distinctions out of 5 subjects.
Now Khamil is planning to make writing as his full time career, because he said "There is nothing in this world is impossible, not until you try it and see the result. Never lose hope, believe in yourself." Even though English is not Khamil's first language, he wanted to connect readers around the world through his books. Z-Virus was his first novel.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book I've ever read was "The Sword In The Stone" by T.H White. I was captivated by the arthurian legend in this book, the world building, the magic system and of course the important of friendship and family values it taught by the end of the story. But the book that really had me inspired to be a writer was Eragon by Christopher Paolini. It was there my passion for reading and writing had begun.
When did you first start writing?
As a new writer in the block, I have no experience or training in writing before. To add more, English is not my native language. Everything I know about writing are self taught. You may find many grammatically errors in my writing, as I am the author and the editor as well (I can't afford one). As long as my readers understand what am I telling them in my stories, that is the most important part. I started writing my first book Z-Virus in 2014, when I realized there were not so many employment to choose from in the area where I live. So I hold on to this Principe "I must do something" to support myself. And now here it is, I completed my first book last year in July 2015, but not yet published. I only published my book in July 2016 after learning how to convert everything into eBook and I'm very happy about it.

My honest review about this. Is this base a real story? Or does this man actually represents you in the story? You did a very good job, you did your research and I respect that very much. You could have actually done more but this is already wonderful.

I don't know how to describe your story. I lost interest in the first few pages. It started out weird. You're missing something. I don't know. It's really weird. I'm sorry.

I read this book last year and it was a very good read! But I hate the ending! Why?
