About the Author

JZ Murdock currently lives and writes from his home in Suquamish, Washington, nine and a half miles across the waters of the Puget Sound from Seattle. Located on several forested acres in the Pacific Northwest’s incredibly beautiful Olympic Peninsula, there is definitely something magical about this area that evokes creativity. He has two children; cool by almost anyone’s scale, who are recently adults and living and traveling on their own. Lately he has been concentrating mostly on screenplays, but he has had several short stories published recently in anthologies and has turned his attention to seeing more of his prose into the public eye. He has had training in a wide variety of disciplines including guitar, firearms, search and rescue, and Martial Arts where he studied Isshinryu Karate under the late, great Steve Armstrong Sensei. He began studying Aikido in college which has become his preferred Martial Art and way of life; along with the Buddha Dharma (Buddhism). He is currently on the Board of Directors for “the” non-profit, local Aikido dojo in his area.

More About the Author

Born a Writer, lived as an Adventurer in Life.

"[Death of Heaven] ... has a Books of Blood vibe [referring of course to Clive Barker's seminal horror books], which really works well. It's in these tales that the author's writing ability shines. He demonstrates a lovely turn of phrase and some of the writing is almost poetic in its beauty." From Michael Brookes, Author & Reviewer

Since the start of the new Millennium I have been writing from my home, tucked away on some very pleasantly forested acreage, just across Puget Sound from Seattle.

So far, I've survived a strange and wonderful life. Okay, not always so wonderful.

My childhood was pretty intense. I survived ADHD as a kid and evolved into ADD which was challenging and seemed useless at times. I found through those trials and tribulations that it either sits on your head throughout your life, or it raises you up on its shoulders. But it's one's own choice.

There was lots of tension in our home. My reading HG Wells, HP Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Edgar Allen Poe and others of that type, probably had something to do with keeping me sane. Those writers certainly gave me the escape I needed to survive. Along with music. All kinds. Heavy Metal before it was cool, psychedelic, experimental, classical, electronic.

I later discovered (along with the rest of the world) Stephen King and the other usual suspects. Eventually I graduated (in my mind) to Clive Barker. I tended to move in cycles from being fascinated by Horror, then Science Fiction, then Fantasy, then Science Fact, finally cycling back around to Horror, SF and so on. I ran through that cycle over much of my lifetime.

I also found along the way that people liked my writings. I started trying to sell them and people started to buy them. Now I have a a couple of books out, a bunch of ebooks, and some audiobooks. I'm trained at University to write screenplays and so I'm also working in that arena.

Do what you love to do. Compromise only to stay alive. In the end, it's a short life, live it well and leave an enduring legacy.

Screenplays -

I started writing screenplays in college when I got chosen for a special year long class with seven other talented individuals who were actors, writers and comedians. All theatre majors and I, the only Psych. Major.

My screenplays include a screen adaptation of TL Mitchell's paranormal romance novel, "Dark of kNight"; and Author Kelly Abell's, "Sealed in Lies", a spy romance novel.

Of those original screenplays of mine currently roaming the world for a home is a Horror/Comedy titled, "Gray and Lover: The Hearth Tales". A story about two very interesting Steampunk females who are Demon Fighters and named Gray and Lover. They may very well have adventures in a sequel as they seem to be very popular among those who have read this screenplay.

It is about a famous Horror writer being stalked by a murderously defective Demon, conjured up by his Gold-digger wife in order to kill him. It opens with the death of a very famous terrorist we all know and an alternative explanation for what "really" happened that fateful day, May 2, 2011 in, Abbottabad, Pakistan.

I do hope you enjoy my works as much as I've enjoyed the hard worked I've put into them.

Cheers!

Format: Kindle Edition
Anthology of Evil runs the gamut from tame to terrifying .

The terrifying > "Andrew" An epic story about a boy who must search for his true self amidst chaos and confusion . Not knowing really who or where he came from . Bits and pieces of his life unfold into a mystifying past , present and future where his role is bond with all life forms and existence itself .

Traverses from his introverted beginnings to his super extroverted future .
We first find Andrew nearly helpless and very confused . As he recalls the past . There is much more to Andrew than your average boy . This boy unravels his past then grows into a complex mysterious figure of a man . Along the way putting together the puzzle pieces of his life . Finding things from his past that he probably would have liked to have permanently forgotten . Horrific scenes unfold definitely not for the squeamish or faint of heart .

AOE is a compilation of various horror , Sci-Fi in which Andrew is the end of . Andrew is also the first part of the currently two part story in which the second part is the epic Death of Heaven , also known as DOH .
