Synopsis: Michael Evans is only in rural St. Davids to maintain a low profile after his time spent as a city cop ended in disaster. The town is perfect for him: isolated. A tiny population. Virtually no crime.
Until the night the strange canisters fall from the sky and the town priest starts killing people with his teeth. To Michael, the bloodbath looks like a murder case that the quiet town's two police officers can't possibly handle. 
But this isn't just a crime scene.
And the priest is just the beginning...
***

Q & A with the author
Q. What is Wildfire Chronicles?At its core, Wildfire Chronicles is my take on the classic zombie apocalypse tale, but I wanted to put my own spin on it. So what we have is not zombies in the traditional sense, but something more targeted. Something with a little more purpose.Q. What was the original inspiration behind the story?There are numerous ways to answer that, but the very first idea was quite simple: what if you had one of those James Bond style villains - or even a whole network of them - but no James Bond to stop them? What if nobody knew anything about their plan to destroy the world before they actually implemented it? I thought it would be cool to explore the idea of one story starting where others might end. After that it seemed only natural to tell the story from the perspective of ordinary, everyday people whose lives are changed in an instant, and how they evolve to cope.Q. There aren't too many zombie apocalypse tales set in Wales...I felt like the idea of an infection hitting a city has been done, and done very well. So I was interested to set the story in a place where isolation plays a key part. For some people, the virus won't reach them for a while, and when it does, they won't have easy access to supplies, or many ways to escape. And then there's the lack of guns. There are very few in Wales, so few as to render them almost worthless. At least against the Infected... Q. What do you hope the reader gets out of Wildfire Chronicles?Pure entertainment, and hopefully a few chills along the way. After the initial scene-setting, the books are written in a fast, breathless sort of style. I'd categorize them as action-horror more than anything.Q. And finally, what is Project Wildfire?I'm afraid that's classified.
