Safe Haven Book 1: Rise of the RAMs.

I have two short stories appearing in two anthologies coming out later this year. One called “Last Light”, for a Breast Cancer Awareness anthology – Treasured Chests; and the other called “Before Safe Haven: Losing the Battle“, which will appear in The Reanimated Writers Undead Worlds Anthology.
At this precise moment I am working on Safe Haven Book 3.
If someone was just hearing about you for the first time what 1 thing would you want them to know?
That I am passionate about storytelling and I love the craft.
Did you always want to be a writer?
In one way or another. Right through school I wanted to be a music journalist. I wrote for a few fanzines and even produced my own fanzine.
What has been the biggest adventure of your life?
Life is the biggest adventure. It is full of ups, downs and surprises round every corner. I don’t think I could pin down a single one. But, this is a pretty big one… starting a writing career.
If zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow would you be prepared?
Pretty much. There aren’t that many people where I live. Now if it spreads to sheep and rabbits, I’m totally screwed.
What 3 things do you feel everyone should have to be ready for a survival situation?

I think it fell apart some time ago and I chose then what I choose now, my wife and pets.
