Zombie Survival Crew Interview

If you are a Walking Dead fan, have you go-bag ready, and are thinking about what you might cook up during the apocalypse, then you need to meet the team at the Zombie Survival Crew!

They were kind enough to feature "The Harvesting" and interview me about the book. You can read the interview here:

Here is just a taste:
Interview with Melanie Karsak
  1. When did you first begin writing, and what inspired you to write your first book?
    • I actually started plotting the book in 2011 but didn’t really set pen to paper (well, finger to keyboard) until 2012. It took me about six weeks to write the first draft. I do a lot of writing in my head, so when I sit down to write, I almost always know what my characters will do and say. I got inspired to write as a side-effect of being an English professor. My academic mind was waxing poetic over why zombies were starting to get so popular. I had some theories about what zombies symbolize and that slowly morphed into a creative project. I have always written but nothing so dark. One day, I suddenly got the idea for the character of Layla, and after that, everything just fell into place.
