Eleven-year-old Matthew Cormier could only watch as the living dead killed his family. He can still hear their cries in his nightmares. With her dying words, his mother screamed at him to run.
He listened.
Three years later, Matthew has made a quiet life for himself living in an abandoned junkyard. He spends his time honing the skills that have helped to keep him alive, for now. Practicing with his bow, building traps and scavenging what he can from the dangerous world around him.
It’s been nearly a year since he’s seen another living person.
That’s all about to change.

Hi all, It’s been a while since I mentioned anything about the forthcoming American Revenant movie, the short film I’ve been working on with director Josh Mullner. There are a couple more pick-up shots that Josh has to get done this week. Other than that, the short is into Sound FX and music. It’s happening, folks! Keep an eye on things here and I’ll make sure you know when we are going to release it for the zombie loving populace.

For now, make sure you and all your friends have read the series and watched the trailer!

As a special treat to the fans and friends of American Revenant, I have written a short story that ties the film and the series together (there are elements in the movie that aren’t in the book). I am editing this now, and will have it available as a free download shortly after the film’s release.

Thanks for your patience and support!

I’ve always had a fascination with other worlds, other lands, places I could never visit.

From the bright and beautiful Shire of Middle Earth, to the stark emptiness of outer space, these places draw me in, entice me to set foot in their worlds, to set up a small shop selling unusual wares, build my own hovel in the dark wilderness, take up sword and shield against an impossible foe, or set my phaser to stun.

To this writer, truly great stories invite you to inhabit their world, not just for a time, but always. When the book is done, or the screen goes dark, you take a piece of the world with you, and leave a piece in it as you go.

The apocalypse can be nuclear, zombie, or alien invasion, just to a name a few of the many variations on how the world may end. The dark allure of these worlds, the fantasy of surviving against nearly insurmountable odds when so many are falling prey to nuclear winter, foreign invasion, or societal collapse is as fascinating as it is terrifying.

You have to scrounge for food, fight men, or zombies, or alien ninjas for your life, seek out safety in numbers when trust is a rare commodity.

Life set to that kind of backdrop looks abysmal, and I imagine it would be, but that’s where imagination comes in.

The apocalypse tests your survival skills, or your ability to adapt. Could you protect your loved ones, escape the city, find sustainable food?

That world of self-sufficiency, where the only dues you have to pay are in blood, is a thrilling and dark world, with few rewards and little praise.

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Some of my favorite stories are apocalyptic or dystopian in nature, it’s a world I can see myself inhabiting, surviving in, thriving in, (until I get my face chewed off by one of the shambling dead, that is).

Though there are too many to name, I recommend Swan Song by Robert McCammon, Stephen King’s The Stand, and One Second After by William Forstchen. I have several shelves full of apocalyptic tales, and I love most of them, so I won’t bore you with a list.
