Author E.E. Isherwood lives with his family in a bunker in St Louis, Missouri, where he avidly awaits the zombie apocalypse. Not a bad introduction, I must say.
Luckily for me, I managed to unearth E.E. for an interview for the Fantasy Sci-Fi Network. He has written two books about post-apocalyptic driving, five books about zombies, and several short stories from both genres
Here are some of my favourite snippets:
* E.E.'s inspiration for zombie writing was born on the unfortunate day of a funeral.
* I love the idea of a 104-year old heroine
* E.E.'s daily word count of writing would put even the most prolific of authors to shame.
* Scouting scene locations for his books is a treasured family activity
* I enjoy the way he writes the Missouri accent

And look what we found in the paper this week:
As the tornado sirens drone for an hour, it heralds the end of civilization and the start of the Zombie Apocalypse. Those who can, run. Others, like 104-year-old Martinette Peters, figure they'll soon be dead. However, her 15-year-old great-grandson has other ideas. Together they head out into the chaos of the plague-infested city. They'll need a miracle to escape. But when society itself is collapsing, is one miracle going to be enough?
