I decided to participate in NaNoWriMo2015 and completed a full-length novel in under one month! My first foray into the zombie genre, Tainted Cure, is slated for release in 2016. Tainted Cure is the first book in The Rememdium Series and has my own personal spin on how the downfall of our world happens. Below is the working back cover blurb:
Scientists attempted to find a cure for addiction. They failed.
Dr. Everett Berning, a leading researcher into the causes of addiction in the brain, spent ten years of his life dedicated to one thing: finding the cure. Recruited after a strange encounter with the enigmatic Dr. Roberta Flint, Director of Research on Code Name: Rememdium, Dr. Berning is sent to work in a secret lab as part of the research team.
When the moment the scientists waited on for years arrives, Dr. Flint and her team are ecstatic.
Unfortunately, not everyone in the world feels the same way.
Benito San Nicholas isn't ready to give up his lucrative business. When the news of a cure arrives on his doorstep from a crooked government informant, Benito enlists the help of other drug lords from around the world to stop the cure from hitting the streets and destroying their livelihoods
What happens next ends up uniting the globe--just not the way society ever intended or hoped

When I released Tainted
Cure, I was asked that question in various ways many times. Several people bombarded
me with negative comments, online and in person (not about the quality of
writing) but about my decision to delve into the sci-fi/post-apocalyptic genre
since my main fan base consists of mystery/thriller/suspense readers. Apparently, there is some obscure rule urging authors to
“stick” to a particular genre if they want to succeed by creating their “brand.”
Many people, including other authors, urged me to change my mind and steer
clear of genre-hopping by continuing to pen what my fans crave. I never have been good with rules or running away from
a challenge. J Though I have been a longtime fan of the zombie genre
and of course, The Walking Dead, I
never considered writing a book about the subject. Seriously, hasn’t it all
been done? What in the world could I add to the genre? Ever since The Magic Island by W.B. Seabrook in
1929 hit the bookshelves,the reasoning behind our collec…
I love a challenge. It keeps the mind engaged and neurons firing on all cylinders. That is why I decided to design my own cover and interior for my latest novel, Empty Shell. After undergoing a thorough edit, the pull to try my own creative skills was just too much for me to ignore.
After weeks of learning how to use Photoshop, thanks to numerous online tutorials, I scratched enough of the surface of the program to create the ebook cover: (Photo credits: Nicolas Raymond http://www.freestock.ca Courtney Simonds
Then, I went through the process of learning how to convert the manuscript to the appropriate electronic files (epub & mobi) for use on various ebook readers.

But, I was unwilling to give in and trudged on until I finally figured it out. I jumped around the living room like a little g…
