Summer of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: J.E. (James) Gurley
What is your latest zombie release?
I have written 7 zombie novels, but my latest is Jake’s Law from Severed Press.
Quick description of it (no spoilers)
Jake Blakely, a loner, prepper ex-cop hiding out in the mountains north of Tucson, Arizona develops his own set of laws, Jake’s Laws, to survive in a world of zombies and bad guys. However, he didn’t count on loneliness being the worst enemy he would face. He slowly learns to appreciate the company of others and to accept the mantle of lawman.
Something unique about it.
Jake’s Law is more about survival than about killing zombies. I use a lot of prepper lore I picked up from survivalist friends in Arizona. Using a location with which I am familiar allowed me to use the stark deserts and mountains of Arizona as a secondary character, where heat or sudden monsoon downpours can be as deadly as zombies.

Your short Bio.
I am a 61 years old retired Atlanta chef, though I have held many jobs through the years – medical technician, oil field worker, explosives blaster, lawn care, factory worker, and musician. I was born in Corinth, MS, but lived in Atlanta, GA for over 20 years. I lived in New Orleans for 2 years, Stroudsburg, PA for 3 years, and Chicago, IL for 2 years. I have lived in Tucson, AZ for 9 years with my lovely wife, Kim, and my cats, Shoes and Coco. I didn’t start writing professionally until 2006. Since then, I have published 35 short stories and 20 novels in the genres of horror, science fiction, and fantasy, as well as some Middle grade horror and YA science fiction/fantasy. I enjoy playing guitars and keyboards in local bands. I will play anything except disco, but my passion is the blues.
