What are your published works, and what are you working on?
Zombie Road: Convoy of Carnage is the 1st book I have published and the second book in the series is about halfway finished.
If someone was just hearing about you for the first time what 1 thing would you want them to know?
These books were written with an idea of “what would I do” in a zompoc situation. As a truck driver, I think I bring something a little different to the genre, parts of the infrastructure and groups of people in America that hasn’t been written about. Not a group of hapless survivors struggling for each can of beans but a group of folks who aren’t dumb and learn quickly from their mistakes.
Did you always want to be a writer?
Yes, but life got in the way for too many years.
What has been the biggest adventure of your life?
Probably raising the kids. Lordy, that was the journey of a lifetime.
If a zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow would you be prepared?
Probably better than most but not as well as some.
What 3 things do you feel everyone should have to be ready for a survival situation?
In a grid down, end of the world type of situation? Guns, guns, and more guns. With them, you can protect and defend what is yours and get what you need.
Who would you want with you if civilized society fell apart?
My family. All of them.
What 2 books would be in your bug out bag, knowing you would have to read them over and over?
The Bible because there is always something new to learn every time you reread it.
The SAS Survivors Manual because really, I have no idea how to start a fire without matches or build a shelter with pine boughs.
If we were thrown into the dark ages what would you miss most?
Modern medicine. Who wants to get gangrene and die from a little scratch.
What is the most surprising fact about you?
I like warm beer.
