Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Small towns, religion, and people coming back from the dead--three things that scare me, all wrapped up in one novel. No zombies, though! These resurrected corpses are more likely to offer you a piece of pie and then strangle you with a telephone cord than try to eat your brain. It's all in a good cause, of course, so quit struggling and give in. You'll thank me for this later.

Risen was originally published by Kensington Publishing under their Pinnacle Books imprint. After going out of print for several years, it's been resurrected as an ebook.

Risen contains a little graphic violence and some adult language where appropriate to the character. It is a full-length novel.

About the Author

Jan Strnad (that last name is pronounced Struh-NOD) contracted the writing bug as an adolescent when he typed out the short story, "The Available Data on the Worp Reaction" by Lion Miller. Looking at the typewritten pages, he thought, "I can do this!" and determined that, when the time came, he would make his living as a writer.

He studied writing in college under Jack Matthews (Hanger Stout, Awake!) and Richard Yates (Revolutionary Road), whom he disappointed greatly by beginning his own professional career by writing comic books. He moved from his home town of Wichita, Kansas to Los Angeles where he became a staff writer for Disney Television Animation. He worked for most of the Hollywood studios, including Sony/Columbia, Warner Bros., Universal, MGM and others before belatedly turning his attention to becoming a novelist.

His first published novel was "Risen," a supernatural thriller, now out of print, which has been resurrected as an ebook. With his second novel, "The Summer We Lost Alice," he went directly to self-publishing through Amazon.

He is a lover of dogs, estimating that a hundred or more dogs have passed through his household, most of them as fosters awaiting adoption. He has an inexplicable fondness for 1950s science fiction movies and is fascinated by the workings and failings of the human brain.
