AUTHOR INFORMATION & LINKS
I am a college student currently studying English literature. I also wrote scripts for an independent production company.
My name is Torrence Sassetti and I am the writer of “Through the Plaguelands.” For me, the most fun part about writing is making characters. I love all of the characters in the book, but one of my favorite characters is Jack. Jack is a sarcastic self-proclaimed apocalypse survival expert with a bit of a knack for saying or doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. He thinks he’s well prepared for a zombie apocalypse and loves to point out what he knows. He starts off as a very “I hate my job” kind of character, but begins to become more active and alive as he’s forced to survive the Plaguelands. He loves the feeling that every immediate decision he makes could mean the difference between life and death.
His sarcasm is really misplaced at times, and he is really bad at talking to people. His tendency to speak before thinking constantly puts him at odds with other main characters. One of my favorite moments with him was when he tempts fate by pointing out that the situation seemed too easy and watching it become ridiculously harder seconds later.
I always related to Jack because of our shared over use of sarcasm and habit of doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. We’re basically the same person. You can read more about Jack and his friends in my new book, “Through the Plaguelands.”
