More About the Author

BIOGRAPHY

H. W. "Buzz" Bernard is a best-selling, award-winning novelist.

His debut novel, EYEWALL, which one reviewer called a "perfect summer read," was released in May 2011 and went on to become a number-one best seller in Amazon's Kindle Store.

His second novel, PLAGUE ("One of the best thrillers of 2012″--novelist Al Leverone), came out in September 2012, and won the 2014 EPIC eBook Award in the suspense/thriller category.

His third novel, SUPERCELL ("Races along with the speed of a twister"--novelist Michael Wallace) was published in late 2013 and became a best seller on Kindle as well as the winner of the 2015 EPIC eBook Award in the suspense thriller/category.

His most recent novel and the third in his "weather trilogy," BLIZZARD ("A terrific book"--novelist Deborah Smith) was released in February 2015.

Before becoming a novelist, Buzz worked at The Weather Channel as a senior meteorologist for 13 years.  Prior to that, he served as a weather officer in the U.S. Air Force for over three decades.  He attained the rank of colonel and received, among other awards, the Legion of Merit.

His "airborne" experiences include a mission with the Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunters, air drops over the Arctic Ocean and Turkey, and a stint as a weather officer aboard a Tactical Air Command airborne command post (C-135).

In the past, 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, have taken him to Germany, Saudi Arabia and Panama.

He's a native Oregonian and attended the University of Washington in Seattle where he earned a bachelor's degree in atmospheric science; he also studied creative writing.

Buzz currently is vice president of the Southeastern Writers Association.  He's a member of International Thriller Writers, the Atlanta Writers Club and Willamette Writers.

He and his wife Christina live in Roswell, Georgia, along with their fuzzy and sometimes over-active Shih-Tzu, Stormy. Buzz is represented by Jeanie Loiacano of the Loiacano Literary Agency.

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.

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!

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 !!

If you are fascinated by hurricanes and the way that TV channels follow the weather then you will love this book. The author H.W. "Buzz" Bernard is a retired meteorologist who worked for thirteen years at the Atlanta-based Weather Channel and knows a lot about these areas.

The book starts dramatically with a C130 plane deliberately flying into the "eyewall" (the centre) of a hurricane to better measure its intensity and direction. When they reach the "eyewall" they enter a breathtaking vision of virtually cloudless skies and calm winds but are surrounded by a circular mass of seething clouds of the rest of the hurricane. This is the Stadium Effect, the feeling of being in a vast stadium where the stands are the hurricane itself.

On the ground a TV meteorologist believes that the intensity of the hurricane is greater than forecast and that it could be headed to low lying areas that need to be evacuated. The sub-plots revolve around the dangers and dramas faced by people who have not evacuated or refused to evacuate and the consequences of damage to the plane when it flies into a far more intensive storm than expected.

As I have never experienced a hurricane (or cyclone in my home country, Australia) I am not a hurricane junkie and found the story to a be a bit contrived to showcase the knowledge and experience of the author. If you are a hurricane junkie, like my wife who believes that every severe storm is a mini cyclone, you will love this book and the drama surrounding the hurricane experience. Personally I rated the book at 3 stars but others with far more interest in hurricanes/cyclones than I do would probably give it a 4 star rating.
