Author Spotlight: Greg Ferrell
When I heard the Greg was interested in writing for the Perseid Collapse World, I quickly did a little research into his books. Zombies. Now we’re talking! With the Walking Dead midseason premiere a week or so away, the genre was on my mind, so I was excited to speak with Greg about his idea for a novella.
I wasn’t expecting zombies, but I’ve often said that zombies might be a little easier to contend with in a post-apocalyptic world, mainly because they’re predictable. They don’t gain your trust, then stab you in the back for your supplies, nor do they kidnap your children for slave labor at the nearest FEMA camp. Yeah, I might prefer zombies oddly enough. I just need a katana. Probably cut my own head off with one of those.
I’m off on a tangent. Back to Greg! I spoke with him at length about his writing, living in Florida (yeah, he’s another one of these lucky $#@#@!&! in Florida!) and his idea for the Perseid Collapse novella. First, I learned that his Humanity’s Hope series is far more than a zombie story. I won’t spoil more than that, but it’s an epic saga. Second, Greg has two 50K world novellas planned for the series. The concept is awesome, with twists and turns designed to keep the reader guessing. I can’t wait to read it.
