SPOTLIGHT ON: Eric A. Shelman


What is the title of your book in Horror Within box set?

Dead Hunger: The Flex Sheridan Chronicle  (Book one in a series that currently consists of six full-length novels – with number seven being written now.)


Quick description of it (no spoilers)

Flex makes a phone call to his sister, Jamie.  During that call, he can tell she is deteriorating fast, and by the end of the call, his two nieces screaming puts him on the road in his truck. 

After discovering his brother-in-law’s mutilated body, and finding his sister and older niece are nowhere to be found, he encounters Gem Cardoza, his ex-girlfriend, who has come there to find him.  She tells him of similar experiences in Miami.

Now they set out together with Flex’s infected sister wrapped in a pool cover and her six-year-old daughter, Trina.  It is the beginning of an epic ride unlike any other zombie apocalypse series you have ever read.


Something unique about it.

My zombies are slow shamblers, but they have a special ability, borne of their decaying insides combined with the component that turned them, allowing them to paralyze their victims for later consumption.

Your short Bio.

Eric’s married to Linda – for nearly 28 years – and lives in south Florida.  His first book came out in 1999, and around 2001 he simply quit writing for eleven years, finally picking up his pen again in 2011 to write Dead Hunger: The Flex Sheridan Chronicle, his first zombie novel.  From there, people liked it so much he wrote another and another, then decided to write a witch novel and a serial killer novel.  Then he wrote another couple of Dead Hunger novels, and side-stepped again to write a time travel / serial killer novel called Shifting Fears.  Now he’s completed book six of the Dead Hunger series, entitled Dead Hunger VI: The Gathering Storm, and while nobody’s disappointed in ANY of the series, they certainly think that book six might be the best so far!  

When Eric’s not writing, he likes to sing … search, and you’ll find over 300 videos of Eric on YouTube.  Try searching for:  Eric Shelman Brown Eyed Girl.  That video is approaching 4,000,000 views.

Oh, by the way.  Eric is thrilled to be included among the other talented authors in The Horror Within collection – and it’s just the beginning …
