Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you, where are you from, what got you into writing in the first place, and what inspires you.
I'm a South African, married to a crazy Irishman, and I live in the countryside with my dog, a scottish terrier named Scotty. (Very original, I know!) I love coffee, cheesecake, and zombies, and it's the undead buggers that got me into writing in the first place.
Tell us a bit about your books and what you’re working on right now.
Currently, I'm working on the last book in a young adult zombie apocalypse trilogy. This project originally started out as a standalone novel for one of my youngest fans, an eleven-year-old girl, but it quickly morphed into a fully-fledged series. It's just such a fun project, I couldn't help myself.
What is it about the apocalyptic genre that you love? Why write books about it?
I enjoy exploring the many aspects of the apocalypse and the different ways people react to such extreme conditions. I'd say the main thing that inspires my writing is hope. Hope for a better future.
Name your favourite author or book.
There are many favorites, both authors and books, but in the apocalyptic genre, Rhiannon Frater's As the World Dies is one of my favorite books.
If you could be a character from a movie, who would it be and why?
Ripley from Aliens because she's such a kick-ass character.
What is your top tip for surviving the apocalypse?
It depends on your circumstances and the type of apocalypse but my overall tip would be to stay hidden and lay low. Live in the utmost secrecy if possible.
