Summer of Zombie: Interview with TS Alan
Can you believe that Summer of Zombie is nearly over? The month of June has gone by terribly quick, and before we know it all the beautiful green of the trees will fall and die on the ground and we’ll be faced with another gruelling winter.
You must excuse me, I haven’t been myself lately. I got a new job and it’s very physically demanding.
But that’s another story.
This story, however, deals with TS Eliot. Today, the tour visits Darkness Dwells and its focus is a spotlight on author TS Alan. You might remember him from earlier this month when I reblogged a piece about him from Darkness Beckons because of the awesome cover for his new book The Romero Strain.
So, without further ado, here is TS Alan’s spotlight:
Summer of Zombie 2014 SPOTLIGHT ON: TS Alan
The Romero Strain
Quick description of it (no spoilers)
A group of New Yorkers survive a zombie outbreak by navigating the city’s utility and transportation tunnels, only to discover a terrifying threat below.
Something unique about it.
More than just the zombie and hostile human threat. Deals with virus mutations and the decay of a major US city. And then there’s Max, the canine protagonist who helps in the group’s survival alongside his owner.

TS Alan was born outside Buffalo, NY. After attending high school he entered into a two-year community college to study Communications and Media Arts. There he became involved in the college’s radio station as a radio personality, under the pseudonym of J.D. Hollywood. After a year with WNCB radio he also became the station’s Promotions Director. J.D. Hollywood was also one of two names he used as a music reporter and Associate Editor for Buffalo Backstage, a local music magazine.
After graduating with an Associate Degree, he took a short hiatus to become a tour manager for a local punk-rock band prior to pursuing a Bachelor Degree at the State University College at Buffalo, where he studied English Literature and Writing. During this time he wrote poetry extensively, won several poetry awards and was included in two anthologies of poetry published by World of Poetry Press. This was also the time he had a great interest in short story writing.
Upon graduation he found work as a proofreader for the local phone directory and newspaper, the Buffalo News. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on his first novel.
After moving to Manhattan he began a career in the music business as tour manager, concert producer, and later co-founder of an independent music label. After a long hiatus, he returned to writing in late 2007.
TS Alan currently resides in the East Village of New York City. He is no longer producing records or going on tour and is concentrating on his writing career. He is currently writing for zombietraining.com and working on his second novel.
