Jay Wilburn: Hey, you’re really dressed up for this interview. Are you in the right place?
Thad David: I’m Thad David. I’m here for Winter of Zombie.
Jay: That’s right. Tell me what your wrote.
Thad: Divide Then Conquer – The Zombie Company Crusade Series co-written with JL Koszarek. Book Two – Illusion of power is coming out at the end of November 2016.
Jay: Tell me about it.
Thad: Divide Then Conquer shows the country split into various sections with each one following a different style of political leadership. There is a constant battle against zombies with the ever growing fight for power that we always see in humans.
Jay: How have the two of you strove to make this book and series stand out?
Thad: It’s intentionally very similar in style to the fast paced political thrillers you read today. And there is a video game app out staring the characters from this series.
Jay: What type of zombies did you go with in this story?
Thad: They are fast and they are strong. I am not afraid of the slower style zombies so it was tough for me to write about them. While I appreciate slower walking dead style zombies in other works, it’s just not something that scares me at all. I wanted something I was afraid of.
Jay: Get out …
Jay: Um, nothing … What were the influences that shaped this story as you wrote it?
Thad: Outside of this genre, I read a ton of political thrillers. One of my favorite authors is Vince Flynn. He has always been an inspiration to me.
Jay: Nice. Where can people buy this book?
