Poll: Should Isabel survive the events happening in "Outbreak"? Vote Now!
Author has written 2 stories for Dawn of the Dead.
My name is Alex and I live in New Zealand. I am part New Zealander, and part Filipino. 19 years old. I enjoy zombies, a lot.
I'm currently studying at the University of Auckland, doing a commerce degree. I've been writing since December 2008 with my first story "Outbreak". Since then, I've kind of slowed down my writing hobby to focus on my studies.
I'm an avid fan of the Metal Gear series, which inspired me to write in the first place. I also like the Half-Life video game series, most zombie related things and any form of media that makes you think, lets you engage and connect with the characters, or just generally not being dumbed down.
As I've said, I'm a huge zombie fan, and thus like to try and write zombie stories with a different kind of spin, twist or view of a post-apocolyptic world involving the dead.
Please review with constructive criticism, as it helps me see what I'm doing right and what needs improving. I value all types of criticism apart from nonsensical flaming ones, so thank you in advance if you do decide to review.
