Robert Tozer is the author of the newly published novel, The Dead, of which Colonies is the first in the trilogy. Prior to that, he has been published in the US and UK in some killer anthologies, all of which are currently available on Amazon and accessible through his website: www.thedead.us
Robert is also the director and content editor at Dead Ink Publishing Inc.
Robert has graduated from the school of hard knocks, written award winning fiction in his mind, and was not responsible for the viral outbreak which has decimated the world. He currently resides with his wonderful wife, Jana, son, Hayden (who is a little monster but not a zombie), and two non-viral infected dogs, Baxter and Hunter, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Along with other survivors, he soon plans on acquiring a caravan of RVs and relocating to a different clime in order to escape the bloodthirsty zombie hordes.
ROBERT TOZER'S "THE DEAD":
Time has run out for the human race. A virus has decimated the planet, returning the dead back to life. Groups of displaced people gather together and roam the countryside, searching for a sanctuary.
Spencer has a singular goal: Travel with his companion, Lexi, to the west coast, find a seaworthy boat, and sail away to a tropical island-hopefully, without any of the dead occupying it. Along the way, the two of them get conscripted into a ragtag band of survivors, and together they travel across America with conflicting goals. Half the camp wants to travel city to city, liberating any survivors and ridding the US of the menace that is the dead; the other half wants to escape, finding a safe haven away from the killing and horror. A political power struggle is created and Spencer is forced to choose sides; but will he lead the group to safety or will he return to his original plan and abandon the camp to strike out with Lexi once again. Spencer battles against his nature as he leads a fighting force into a small city for life saving supplies. But in this new world, the hungry and murderous dead aren't the only things to be feared. Sometimes the biggest threat to humanity's survival is the living.
