DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my. No, this isn't a book about the Wizard of Oz, but rather a very intriguing one about zombies. Who doesn't like a great zombie book? However, this isn't your typical zombie horror thriller novel, rather, it is based on actual events including COVID-19. "Pandemic: Chaos is Bleeding" by Cynthia Fridsma, is spellbinding and you won't want to put it down. So, imagine yourself living in a COVID-world. Wait, we do. The only thing missing are zombies. Take a look and enjoy.
Since the pandemic, Sybil Crewes hasn’t left home. She stopped her duties as an ATU agent (Anti-Terrorism Unit). But then, she got a disturbing phone call. Her friend, Harry Brown, has been kidnapped, and this forces Sybil out of her house.
While doing so, she uncovers an illegal lab where they created a deadly COVID-19 variant that turns its victims into skinned zombies. She contacts the ATU to resume her duties as an ATU agent to stop the new threat and save the world from its undoing.
back as she can remember, Cynthia has been listening to exciting stories told
by her mother. She grew up reading books from Edgar Allan Poe, H. P. Lovecraft,
and Philip K. Dick, among others.
Cynthia’s mother who inspired her to start telling—and writing—her own stories.
Fridsma’s writing career started after a handicap in 2014—she has a tremor in
her right hand, numbness in the fingers, and pain in her wrist. She had to give
up her other creative outlets, such as photography, computer programming, and
gave up on juggling, so focused on what she could do rather than what she
writing, she sometimes plays guitar—in Jimi Hendrix style.
Cynthia lives with her husband
and pet bunny Max in Amsterdam.
