Lee Herrmann was born and raised in South Africa and current Pretoria resident. He has always had a fascination with zombies and has numerous contingency plans for the eventual apocalypse. Therefore, while he waited, it made sense to write a book about zombies in South Africa, which has resulted in the Journal Of A South African Zombie Apocalypse (find a review here)
He currently works in a near-zombie environment as a Content Manager for a big corporate firm in Johannesburg and has had a varied writing background including copywriting, writing for web, radio and magazines. He is also the author of the mystery title The Manservant Mysteries.
Lee will be making an appearing at the Zombie Compound at GeekFest this weekend, being held in Johannesburg just near the Lion Park, but today he took time out to chat to us about a bunch of things including
- his initial rejection of Adam West as Batman
- where the best place to head would be in the forthcoming apocalypse
- and how deep declarations of love can be the highest honour in a relationship ... and a certain signal that you won't be making it out alive.
