Most of the fans of the zombie genre know that location plays a key to a character’s survivability- just as if there were other emergent crises that were to appear at any given time in real life. There’s an interesting site that I came across that uses some awkward but useful data to determine zombie survivability by state.

My argument goes either way when it comes to the location you’re writing for in the zombie apocalypse (ZA). As I wrote Affliction I had to think about this quite often as the plot of my story moved along. It takes real world data and an active imagination to write what’s best in a fiction story.

I'm a hardworking thirty-something who likes to read various topics, write, coupon, garden, hang out with my almost human dog, sit-and-do-absolutely-nothing, and most importantly live, happily :) In June 2006, I survived an SAH (subarachnoid brain hemorrhage = brain aneurysm) and after my recovery and a few years passed I set out to write- something that I thought I'd never do well again. Most who know me expected I'd write about that experience but instead I chose something a little different. I'm now the author of an apocalyptic, zombie-thriller titled 'Affliction' which will be published by DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C and will be out by the year's end. Whether you read 'Affliction' or not (I would hope you will) my goals for everyone, including you would be to follow your heart, set some goals and follow through accordingly- otherwise you'll never truly know how happy you can be.
