M. Frederic Jennings
M. Frederic Jennings is on a mission from God. Literally. Supernaturally, the Holy Spirit came crashing into his bedroom one morning as he lay in bed after working his night shift as a nurse at a nearby hospital. Mark was not a Christian at the time and had only tuned his bedside clock radio to a station playing old-time church music for help getting to sleep.
The only problem was, after playing only a song or two, the station next featured a Bible reading segment. While under, "The hearing of the word," as the good book so succinctly puts it, the other worldly visitation by God’s spiritual essence took place. Slowly but surely over the next few years he not only figured out what had happened to him, but also began processing and documenting the incredibly vivid and strange, yet hopefully also meaningful and entertaining visions, characters and story ideas that have come to fill the half dozen or so manuscripts he has completed in that same span of time.
“The Lord will take you into realms others cannot and dare not go,” were words of prophecy spoken over Mark in a home Bible study group dedicated to the development of the spiritual gifts. In his latest work, “And the Dead Shall Rise,” a Christian zombie apocalypse tale, the new and fresh voiced horror novelist does just that. Care to come along?
