The Omega Effect: A Zombie Novel

Q: Who or what inspired you to become a writer?
Dan Abnett is my main influence even though he writes for a slightly different genre. He is an amazing writer, very detail oriented and paints a very interesting picture using his vocabulary. I may not be on that level but I strive to be one day.

Q: How did you come up with your story?
Well honestly the idea came randomly when I had no cable or internet. I had nothing to do after work so I decided I wanted to write a story. I had no intentions of it becoming a book. The idea mostly came from writing what I know and I know zombies. I watch the movies, read books, played the video games so naturally it is common knowledge for me.

Q: If you weren’t a writer, what would you be? Why?
I actually am something other than a writer, I work in the health care field and while rewarding it is not the same as writing. It is completely different to sit down and write something because you want your story to be heard (or read), rather than just working to get a paycheck. (Although the paycheck is a little bit important.)

Q: Favorite genres to read?
Sci Fi/Fantasy, Horror

Q: What are your pet peeves?
Oh which to choose, People who instantly give a bad review of a fiction book because it is unrealistic. The problem is fiction is made up, its imagination, its not real so it does not have to be realistic. People who demand great customer service but feel they can treat you like dirt, you shall receive what you put out in to the world.

Q: What is something most people don’t know about you?
That I am very different looking then I am mentally. I have a “unique” appearance and many people judge me by that.

Q: Where else can we find you, other titles, or anything else you’d like to share?
I currently have no other titles this is my ice-breaker into the industry. I am currently working on a sequel at the moment and maybe even helping to write a script.
