More About the Author

BIOGRAPHY

H. W. "Buzz" Bernard is the author of three novels. EYEWALL, his debut novel, became a number-one Kindle best seller. PLAGUE, his second novel, won the 2014 EPIC eBook Award in the suspense/thriller category. His third novel, SUPERCELL, attained top-five status on Kindle's best-seller list.

Buzz is a veteran meteorologist having spent 13 years as a senior meteorologist with The Weather Channel, and 33 years as a weather officer in the U. S. Air Force.

His background as a meteorologist informs both EYEWALL and SUPERCELL. He's had first-hand experience with hurricanes, having penetrated the eyewall of Hurricane Felix in 1995 with the Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunters. In the spring of 2012, he participated in a tornado chase on the Great Plains with Silver Lining Tours. At The Weather Channel, he worked closely with some of the most highly regarded hurricane and tornado forecasters in the business.

Besides his trip with the Hurricane Hunters, he's flown air drops over the Arctic Ocean and Turkey, and was a weather officer aboard a Tactical Air Command airborne command post (C-135). Additionally, he's provided field support to forest fire fighting operations in the Pacific Northwest, spent a summer working on Alaska's arctic slope and served two tours in Vietnam. Various other jobs, both civilian and military, took him to Germany, Saudi Arabia and Panama.

He stepped away from weather-themed books to write PLAGUE, mainly, he says, because the subject, bioterrorism, scared him half to death. He's now back at work on a meteorological thriller: BLIZZARD.

Buzz is a native Oregonian and attended the University of Washington in Seattle where he earned a degree in atmospheric science and studied creative writing. He's currently vice president of the Southeastern Writers Association.

After leaving active duty with the Air Force, he spent twenty years in New England, but now lives in Roswell, Georgia, near Atlanta, with his wife, Christina, and overly active Shih Tzu, Stormy (whose namesake appears in SUPERCELL.)

Batten down the hatches: the forecast for Eyewall predicts a tour de force that will blow you away. The pace is frenetic; the characters realistic as neighbors; and the plot causes your stomach to tighten, one scene after another.

Bernard knows weather and nature, and he knows how to write about it so that the rest of us can understand barometric pressures, cloud nomenclature and storm surges in everyday terms.

He also knows human nature. He overlays three plot perspectives and the dynamics of several relationships that cover just about every range of emotion from work stress to marital problems, family struggles and heroism, all in a manner akin to Greek tragedy.

Hurricane season (and school vacations) start soon. This is a definite beach read for the summer!

I picked up this title when it was free and just got around to reading it recently. I enjoyed it, but I didn't think it was as exciting as some other reviewers have said. I live in a hurricane prone state (Florida) and found the subject matter interesting. The characters on the other hand didn't have much depth. While I was curious to find out how each character made out after the storm, I didn't care much about any of them. They weren't memorable. This sounds like I didn't enjoy the book but that's not so. I did enjoy the story, but don't want to mislead anyone into thinking it's a wonderful book.

Just finished Eyewall, Buzz Bernard's thrilling account of a Cat 5 hurricane hitting St. Simon's Island in Georgia.As seen from three perspectives, readers struggle with flying through a huricane eyewall, frantically trying to get away from a storm surge rolling over the island, and dealing with the varying emotions involved.

Eyewall will be on the lips and laps of many beachgoing readers this summer, especially in the South. A new writing star has appeared. More, soon, please.

After reading all the rave reviews for this book, I bought it to take to our family's beach vacation. I enjoyed the storm parts and appreciated Bernard's expert, in-depth meteorological knowledge. However, I thought that the female characters were stereotypically weak. It included the shrew of a wife and two come-hither women who might otherwise have been written as stronger, career-minded women. It's as if Bernard were writing a script for a cheesy, made-for-TV movie.

OK .. I'm a meteorologist but you don't have to be one to enjoy this novel. Three very different genres of people are sucked into the ride of their lives (directly and indirectly) by a monsterous force of nature. Character development is excellent to the point that you really seem know them personally. With skilled storytelling (twists and trysts) this wild adventure joins together as one and revs up like a jet engine. Fallible characters are stretched to their human limits. No cookie cutter finish to this one. A great summer read !!

EYEWALL clearly defines Buzz Bernard as a master story teller. Not only does he combine genuine characters with authentic dialogue, and beautiful description with hard hitting action, but he does this in a complex plot that takes you from one tense contrasting scene to another.

I've never read anything by Bernard before and was impressed by the way the author has carefully structured the story to give an excellent balance of information, action and suspense. He obviously trusts his readers to be intelligent enough to piece together information and not bog them down in unnecessary detail. This allows you to become absorbed in the book, as you should be, and Bernard's fluid and pacey writing style makes this a joy to read.

A definite must for those of you who love intense thrillers with great characters, multiple plot lines and, in Bernard's case, more than one unexpected twist. A huge thumbs up!

This book could have been really good; an expert editor can do a lot. I did enjoy learning more about hurricanes. I liked how the author gives the storms their own personalities. Part of the problem is that there are too many story lines. Fewer characters and crisper dialogue would have helped. I just gave up on it. I'm sure I figured out what happened. Maybe some day when I'm really bored I'll skim through it to see if I was right. In other hands this book could have been great.

I downloaded this book for free and I feel like I overpaid.

The stuff about the hurricane was interesting (that's why I give it 2 stars vs. 1 star), but otherwise the plot was predictable, the dialogue was poor (and fairly unbelievable from a relational standpoint) and it seems as if the author attempted to cram too many relationship side-stories into the book. I don't see how anyone could compare this book to anything written by Michael Chricton.

However, with that being said, I would definitely read a non-fiction book written by this author that pertains to hurricanes.
