Summary of Experience
Zack has written fiction and poetry since he was very young. He remembers falling in love with the idea of creating new worlds through words in elementary school, and credits a particular English teacher from middle school for turning him on to Poe, fiction, poetry, and his own desire to pursue these as a lifelong writer.

He enjoys creating, coding, and writing interactive hyper-text stories, such as with the Twine engine. He has also written reports for the technical industry, consumer reviews, legal documents, and public relations documents for businesses. He spent three years working for his college newspaper, two of those as the arts and life editor, and was also the assistant editor for national creative writing journal the Pisgah Review.

He loves writing in the speculative fiction genre, because it is so open to imagination and content. He write in many genres, but science-fiction, ghost stories, and weird fiction have always been favorites. Some of his favorite authors include Philip K. Dick, H.P. Lovecraft, Kurt Vonnegut, Cormac McCarthy, and Ursula K. Leguin.
