Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I wanted to create something new in the Zombie genre. I wanted to have a story where the world had not completely fallen apart and society was still held together and somewhat normal.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wrote my first novel four years ago and didn't know what to do with it. a friend suggested Amazon and said "what is the worst that can happen? nobody reads it?" I posted After the Day and was quickly onto writing my second book Red Tide.
