Javan Bonds is the Author of The Still Alive Series, an Amazon Best Selling Zombie Apocolypse series. The Still Alive series follows a group of unlikely survivors trapped in Alabama lake town as they try to keep their wits about them. Making a new life in a world overrun by naked, blue-skinned, yellow-eyed, nocturnal zombies that spew vile shit everywhere is hard. Not only are these former humans attempting to bite or devour every last morsel of flesh on any of the uninfected, but they are also becoming increasingly more intelligent and sadistic. Add to that a few crazy dictators, gun-toting preppers, rouge military leaders, religious fanatics, and cannibals! Fun times! Think WW-Z, Zombieland, and Shaun Of The Dead, only better. Bonds has had to overcome numerous obstacles in writing, as well as to live his daily life. Diagnosed at age eleven with Friedrich’s Ataxia (FA) (a progressively degenerative neuromuscular disease under the umbrella of Muscular Dystrophy ), he was slowly robbed of his physical abilities through the years. Bonds started using a wheelchair in 1999, but that was only the beginning of his setbacks. In 2010, his sight started diminishing, to the point he is now legally blind. Now, because of his deteriorating hearing, he can’t pick up individual voices in a noisy room. Despite all of this, he continues to work tirelessly... seven days a week on his writing. Bonds, never letting his disability rule him, has lived, loved, and laughed often. Reading and writing have long provided Bonds with both pleasure and a creative outlet. In 2010, he discovered a passion for writing novels. With the help of Nuance’s Dragon Naturally Speaking, he continues to write every day. In late 2015, at only 28 years old, Bonds was told he might have only a short time left due to the ravages of FA on his heart. After learning that, he went all in, and by mid-2016, he published his first novel and never looked back. He began to work hard to complete as many novels as possible before his time in this world runs out. But something happened along the way. Given his drive and determination to write and promote every day, his health began to improve. He has by no means has found a cure for the genetic disorder that ravages his body but has found a second wind that has given him new energy and direction in his life. His cardiologist now says that the window of time he had been given to live is now much longer than previously predicted. Bonds has since remastered his first novel in 2020 and released it as Blood Of Tyrants: Book One of the Free State Of Dodge Saga, the first book in a dystopian series about America in decline and its rebirth. Bonds hopes you enjoy the Still Alive series, with its humor, pop culture references, and excessive zombie-killing action; Oh, and there is a pirate ship too. Planning to write many more installments in his Still Alive series, he is revisiting the Free State of Dodge, working on completing more chapters soon... as well as releasing Audible versions of all of his current works. Javan has these words of wisdom to offer for others stricken by a life-shortening illness. “Live your life. Light your candle on both ends and let it burn. It may go out faster, but it will be brighter than some who live much longer.” Keep an eye on his flame. Watch it burn!Read more Read less
