Michael Esser


First, I have to admit that I am a self-confessed lover of all things geeky, sci-fi, or superhero-related. I honestly feel everything is made better when you have fun experiencing it. For that reason, I write like I want to read: light, logical, and very easy to digest. (No long-winded prose or two-page scene descriptions here!)

Zombies, space, monsters, glimpses into alternate futures, and tales of fantasy mixed with how I feel my characters would really react if they were really placed in the odd settings and positions I decide to put them in.

When I'm asked about my writing style, I like to say that I write for the "I'll wait for the movie" types.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The idea for "Invazion" - with a "z" for zombie - came about after I moved from Las Vegas to Kingman, Arizona. You see I went from this big city to a small town overnight and on one really dark and quiet night I realized just how isolated Kingman really was. Me being me, I thought to myself, "What would we do if zombies invaded?" "How would they attack?" "Why?" The story grew from there.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I think my motivation to become an indie author started first out of retaining a sense of control. I knew what I wanted and wanted to make sure I got it on my terms. I'm also a little impatient and waiting for some publisher to rubber stamp me didn't let me get moving fast enough. Not saying if one came along I wouldn't entertain the idea of traditional publishing, as long as it was still on my terms.
