My big boys and I took a little three hour drive (six hours round trip) to meet Jonathan Maberry on September 18th, and it was completely worth it. If you haven't read my reviews yet, I recently finished and loved the Benny Imura series. That was my first exposure to Mr. Maberry's writing, and I'm looking forward to reading his other series. And once I finished the Benny Imura series, I approved it for my boys to read. My ten-year-old has started listening to the audiobooks. He loved Rot and Ruin, and is in the middle of Dust and Decay. They are superior audiobooks and I highly recommend them. Word is they are in the midst of working on the third book for audio.
|Oooh, the pretty signed books!|
Mr. Maberry not only entertained us about his books, but was a wealth of information on writing, creating, and organizing. I was inspired not just by his works of fiction, but by his personality and work ethic as well. I'm hoping my children were paying good attention :)
|And zombie cards!!|
If you've not explored the world of Benny Imura, you can find my review for the Benny Imura Series here, and my review of the final book (so far), Fire and Ash, here.
Here is a list of the first books of Jonathan Maberry's series:
