Author Notes on Forgotten

"Forgotten introduces 3 new characters, all of which bring a new dimension to the zombie apocalypse caused by the AM13 virus. These 3 people all have their story told from their point-of-view as the situation around them becomes increasingly dire.
Ethan is an obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) sufferer who's condition has affected his life dramatically. His fear or germs, disease and illness has caused him to become isolated, afraid, 'different'. There is no chance someone this frightened can survive the there?
Alyssa is an overly confident teenage girl who has spent her life daydreaming about the zombie apocalypse finally arriving - and now that it has, she knows with an absolute certainty that she will survive. She's read all the books, watched all the films, done all the research. She's strong, tough...a badass! Any group would be lucky to fight alongside her.
And finally, there is Dr. Jones, the scientist who can't understand why he alone seems to have been selected to attempt to cure the virus...surely there are survivors that are much more experienced than him in virology? And what will happen to him if he fails? Is the fate of the human race really resting on his shoulders alone?
These characters are also frustratingly real and not what you'd expect from a zombie apocalypse novel. The AM13 series tells the stories of the people usually ignored, forgotten about. You may love it, you may hate it, but you won't know until you try it :)"
