About Tim and Z-Risen

Tim and Darryl

(That’s Tim on the right and Darryl Dixon himself on the left)

Timothy W. Long spent a number of years in the Navy and traveled the world. Twenty years ago he moved into the IT field and hasn’t looked back.

Tim has been writing tales and stories since he could hold a crayon and has read enough books to choke a landfill. Tim has a fascination with all things zombie, a predilection for weird literature, and a deep-seated need to jot words on paper and thrust them at people.

Tim is the author of the bestselling, AMONG THE LIVINGAMONG THE DEAD, and the military themed zombie book  BEYOND THE BARRIERS, all published by Permuted Press. His other works includes the deserted island ‘zombedy’ THE ZOMBIE WILSON DIARIES.
