Today, author Zachary Chopchinski joins me to talk a little about writing and his story in the Last Words Anthology.
How did you become a writer? Any people, books, or movies inspire you to fulfill your dream?

I’ve always wanted to be a writer since I was a little pup. It wasn’t until my wife gave me the right nudge in the right direction that I decided to fulfill my dream.

How did you become involved in The Last Words anthology?

I was approached by one of the organizers.

What is your story about? How did you come up with this idea?

My story is about a very sarcastic man who is stuck in the middle of an apocalypse. I sort of just put myself in the situation and kept asking myself “what would I do?”

What do you feel draws people to reading dystopian stories?

I feel that there’s always an allure to readers in regards to what happens when it all ends. It’s the drama of horror, suspense, and drama.

If you could choose any book world to live in for one week, which would you choose and why?

HP! Hands down! As for the why…I feel like that one sort of speaks for itself.

What else are you working on? Any hints?

Working on finishing up the last book in The Gabrielle Series, Curiosity and Arawn’s Penence. I am also working on a Sci-Fi Steampunk book called Webley and The World Machine.

Do you have any advice for new writers?

It’s not as easy as you think it is, but keep pushing and DON’T GIVE UP!

Are you a plotter or a panster? Or a hybrid of the two?

Hybrid. I plot for the most part but sometimes I just can’t stick to it.

What do you do when you’re not writing?

Working usually.

Do you have any advice for new writers?

It’s not as easy as you think it is, but keep pushing and DON’T GIVE UP!


Zachary is a bow tie wearing, formal vest rocking, pocket watch using, sarcastic monster of a writer. Currently residing in Orlando, Florida, he spends his days working, writing and procrastinating.

Zach has multiple college degrees, in the fields of criminal justice and criminology…because he wanted to catch ALL the bad guys. Now, coupled with being an author of young adult fiction he spends his days yelling at people for breaking regulatory laws.

Zach is the author of the Gabrielle series, a young adult fantasy with a paranormal-historical-time traveling twist (try saying that five times fast).
