Bill Blume’s love for the written word started back in high school with an addiction to comic books that was later hijacked by novels such as Frankenstein and Dragonflight. The first book in his young adult vampire hunter series, Gidion’s Hunt, was published back in 2013. Just like the father figure in his Gidion Keep novels, Bill has worked as a 911 dispatcher for more than two decades. He also spent ten years working as a board member for James River Writers. His latest book West of Apocalypse was released this past August.
