The zombies are coming!!!

51nDch1C hL._SS500_[1] Tonight was writer’s meeting, and one of our founding members, Scott Browne, had more good news.

First, on March 3, his novel, Breathers, is going to be released. It was the first novel workshopped in the current iteration of our writer’s group. Last year, he found an agent for it, who sold it to a division of Random House in less than 2 weeks, and today he announced that Fox Searchlight is buying the film rights!

Oh yeah, and he’s decided to quit his day job as of next Friday.

And lest I forget, Breathers kicks ass. Serious ass. But don’t take it from me, both Publisher’s Weekly and Kirkus Review gave it rave reviews.

Dreams really do come true.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
