In today's profile, we're pleased to feature T.W. Piperbrook, author of the Contamination post-apocalyptic zombie series!

T.W. Piperbrook first began submitting his stories for publication at age nine. Although he didn't receive a contract, he received many nice letters from major publishing houses. Below is an example of one that he remembers from his childhood:

"Dear Tyler: Thank you very much for your submission of "George and the Robot". You are very ambitious for an eleven-year-old! George is certainly a likeable character, and the story is very intriguing. Unfortunately, we will not be making an offer to publish at this time, as we are not accepting any unsolicited manuscripts. Good luck, and keep on writing!"

Undeterred, he continued to spin his tales. After college, T.W. spent four years as a touring musician, travelling across the US, Canada, and Europe. He has since incorporated many of these experiences into his writing. (Though to the best of his knowledge, the zombies in the Contamination series strictly a product of his imagination).

Contamination Book One: The Onset is his first published work.
