The Interview

1.) What made you write about zombies?
Once upon a time, long before the Walking Dead made them a household name, zombies were the “underdog” of the paranormal world. In YA, which was my chosen genre, it was vampires who were having all the fun. I saw zombies as a way to break from that strict mold of vampire lore and create a new mythology that was hopefully not so rigid.

2.) When did you love for writing start?
My love for writing started with my very first Judy Blume book, Blubber. Before then I had always read for school, never for pleasure. Judy Blume taught me that reading could do more than entertain, even while being entertaining – it could enlighten, inform, educate and even inspire!

3.) Can we expect more zombie loving from you in the future?
I am always writing more zombie stories, and look forward to taking what I’ve learned about the undead into new and exciting territories!

4.) Tell us one thing that someone might not know about you and your writing.

I’m actually NOT a zombie! Nor do I know any zombies, un-living or un-dead! Seriously, though, the one thing that someone might not know about me and my writing is that, no matter what time of year it is, I’m probably listening to Christmas carols while I’m writing! (Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone!)

5.) What is your favorite hobby?

If I’m not writing or spending time with my wife, I’m watching movies! I have a deep passion for movies and I find that watching them helps me create better stories – especially zombie ones!
