What is your latest release and what genre is it? The Ghoul Archipelago is a hardcore horror sea adventure (with a soupçon of political satire.)

Quick description: The Ghoul Archipelago is partly my love letter to zombie fans (try to count all the Easter eggs) and partly my attempt to gain real street cred in the horror community. This is extreme horror at its goriest and I’m very proud of all the stomachs I’ve turned. This book’s got heart, though, in the form of a scrappy crew of smugglers who find themselves adrift in the South Pacific in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. When they receive a distress call from the American mainland they feel obliged to rescue the survivors, but first they must battle cannibals, pirates, and three of the nastiest villains who ever disgraced the globe.


Brief biography:
I’m an author, Germanist, and veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I live with my wife and two cats in Pennsylvania, the birthplace of modern zombie horror.

I just finished Hunting the Moon (The Moon Series) by Becca Boucher. I really enjoyed it! There were ghosts, psychic visions, and Celtic lore. It was definitely an interesting story

What am I not working on? Ha! Several projects in the works—a couple book projects, short stories … keeping out of trouble!

Christine’s reading recommendation:
I like to read in a lot of different genres. I just finished reading Wedding Ring by Emilie Richards. It was a good story centering on family history and the mother’s quilts, family complications and life’s changes, resulting in a nice, unexpected ending.
