About Jack Wallen
One morning, Jack Wallen woke "with a single question on his mind: What would it be like to transform into a zombie?" He "realized the only way to answer the question was by writing his first zombie novel." The goal with the I Zombie I series is ten books which will then bridge into a new series, The Book of Jacob.
The next novel in the series, T Minus Zero is scheduled for release in the Spring of 2013. Find out more at Jack Wallen's website or check out the site for Zombie Radio.
Of his writing, Wallen says:
"I approach every book I write as if I am watching a film. By working this way, I know immediately if a scene works or not. If it doesn't flow – it goes. I'm all about my work having a very musical quality – a melody and rhythm."
Jack Wallen has been given the name “The Zombie King” by his readers and fans. I haven't yet discovered the genesis of this nickname, but perhaps one of the readers can offer some enlightening comments.
What Makes Jack Wallen Unique?
Wallen was part of the cast in The Great Gilly Hopkins at the Victory Theatre on Broadway in the late 1990s, earning some good reviews for his work as the character William Ernest. He has also performed the role of Puck at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival and appeared as the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz at the Music Theatre of Louisville.
That's an interesting range of roles. I'm thinking that the mischevious Puck must sometimes find expression in Wallen's writing as well. Jack Wallen says that his theatre experience "helped shape a love for words deep within the well of his consciousness."
