Max Brooks has a love for reading and writing horror stories, zombie stories, and anything to get people out of their seats. He started on Saturday Night Live in 2001 with stand up, and pursued bits and pieces of acting. He has been in a few movies such as Roseanne, To Be or Not to Be, Pacific Blue, and 7th Heaven.
A few years after Saturday Night Live was inspired to start writing books. His first book was titled “The Zombie Survival Guide” and made the NY Times Best Sellers list. It was different from most horror books because of the dark humor and comedy. This book was bought by tons of people, which inspired Brooks to write a second book to this series “The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks” These books were fairly popular because of the comedy in them.
