About William Esmont
William Esmont and his wife reside in Arizona. They have two Great Danes.
William Esmont has been an avid reader all his life. The fascination with zombies came a little later, when he was in junior high school. That was when he first saw the movie Dawn of the Dead.
Around the year 2000, William Esmont became interested in writing for others. Naturally, zombies began to take center stage in his work.
As Esmont puts it, he:
"...spends his days trapped in a six by six cloth box, writing software to make corporate America just a little bit richer, and his nights, weekends, and holidays crafting the stories he wants to read."In high school, William Esmont worked in a boat yard, refinishing wooden sailboat masts. He likened the process to writing:
"The work was hot, tedious, and never-ending, but it taught me patience and respect for the medium. Unlike painting or applying polyurethane, varnishing requires a seemingly-infinite number of applications with hours of delicate wet sanding between each coat. It's only by slowing slowing down and losing yourself in the process that you have any hope of achieving the your goal, which if you do it right, is a work of art. Just like writing."Visit William Esmont's website to learn more about upcoming works and events.

"At the ripe old age of 43, I decided I wanted to try something new and challenging. Once I figure it out, I may even post a YouTube video. "Yes. That's right. William Esmont can ride off-road on a unicycle.
Esmont promises to give an update on his progress very soon.
