About Eric Shelman
Shelman has been writing since he was a child. He writes for two hours daily, after finishing work at his day job. His writing routine includes extra time on weekends.
"I work 8-9 hours a day, then come home and dedicated from 6:00 to 8:00 to writing. On weekends, if I'm in the middle of a project, I like to try for four hours a day. I write a consistent 1,000 words per hour, so I get in about 2000 words in a session.Shelman's first book had notihing to do with zombies. It was the story of Mary Ellen Wilson, a young girl who lived in New York in the 1870s. Wilson was rescued from an abusive situation by the ASPCA, which is usually associated with rescuing animals.
Only later did Shelman begin writing about zombies.
"Among the first zombie books I had ever read was Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout - the first book in his series. SO, I'd have to say that once I was put onto zombies, he was my major influence."The Dead Hunger books are now his most popular books. Shelman comments: "Who ever thought I'd go from my first book, a story of an abused child in 1870's New York being rescued by the ASPCA to zombies?"
