A native Californian, T.C. Zmak grew up loving the sun-drenched warmth of the beach and the spine-tingling chill of horror movies. On the summer solstice, while pondering the concept of vampires, an idea struck T.C.: What if I introduced a California twist into vampire mythology—one that combines the darkly romantic allure of a vampire with the ultra-cool vibe of a surfer and ... something more? On a rock-blaring road trip from the Monterey Bay to San Diego and then back up the coast, T.C. plotted the opening chapters to DARK SURF.

Author Bio: 

I feel as though age should never be a hindrance on one's passion. I have been writing ever since I was a child, obsessively reading far before that, and adamantly pursuing what it is that I love ever since. When I am not coming up with stories, I typically paint or try to get outdoors and outside of my natural state of being an introvert.
