His first book, Dead Air, is number one of a four book Zombie apocalypse series, with Dead Calm coming out soon. His second book, Immigrant Song, takes a hard look at illegal immigration but with a twist.
He is a Master Diver and Dive Master through PADI, so to be near some of the best diving in the world he currently resides in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Months after the dead rise up to challenge the living for control of the earth, Steve Wendell and the survivors who fled with him by sailboat from Clearwater, Florida find themselves becalmed in the Gulf of Mexico.
As their chances for survival dwindle, they come across a cruise ship drifting in the current. Seeing that the living dead only occupy parts of the ship, they decide to go aboard. Searching through an eerie, deserted opulence, they find a brother and sister in hiding.
But not just from the dead.
A religious charlatan has taken control of the ship and is promising his followers that the rapture is coming soon…If only they believe in him. He’s using his faithful in a quest for power, but after Steve and his people arrive, he wants something else.
When a man suffering from a rare disease receives a debilitating head injury, the treatment given him mutates his affliction into a highly contagious virus. As the disease spreads, it first kills its victims and then reanimates them into beings that are compelled to eat ravenously and crave human flesh.
In Clearwater, Florida, Steve Wendell is following the stories of people attacking each other, but is unaware of the situation. When Heather Johansen, a Sheriff’s Deputy who is interested in Steve as more than a friend, tells him the real story of cities being overrun by the dead, Steve makes plans to barricade himself in the fifteen story bank building where the radio station he manages has its suite of offices.
After locking himself in with Heather and eight others, the group continues to broadcast live as the dead surround their redoubt and search for a way in. Coming across a ten year-old girl that is immune to the disease, the group tries to find a way to transport her across a land filled with the flesh-eating dead to a government facility where she can be studied and a cure found
