New Author Michael Presutti Joins WITS Podcast Today

Michael Presutti discusses his new book, Last Words, with WITS owner Yvonne Perry today. Last Words shares Presutti's vision of what happens when one man infiltrates a military compound and releases a biological agent over the skies of the western United States. As the virus spreads across the country, the infected members of the population transform into zombie-like creatures who prey on family members and strangers alike. The survivors become more isloated as they fight off the growing numbers of infected individuals who roam the land.
Last Words is a story of heroism, our notion of civilized society, and the threat of an apocalypse.

Michael will be discussing how his lifelong interest in horror and thriller stories influenced the writing of Last Words and how he developed the characters whose terrifying stories are revealed as the book unfolds. He also will address the idea that a single disaster, either natural or man-made, can destroy the tenuous structure of an organized society that we have managed to build.
