SPOTLIGHT ON: Peter Welmerink


How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?

I am an author/writer working with Seventh Star Press.


What is your latest release and what genre is it?

TRANSPORT: Book One is my latest release. It is a cross between a Military Action-Thriller and Zombie Apocalypse.

 Transport Book One

Quick description of it.

Captain Jake Billet and his quirky crew of military misfits have to covertly bring a much hated lakeshore government official roughly 40 miles across West Michigan while trying to avoid everything and everyone who wants to stop, kill, eat and dismember them along the way. And not necessarily in that order.  


Something unique about it.

It’s a post-post zombie apocalypse world. We’re still here. They’re still here. The local zombie “civilians” are protected. The outside city limits ones, fair game if they don’t get you first. A very militarized WALKING DEAD-type series with a 72-ton armored heavy transport vehicle and crew dealing with it all.
