Thank you for visiting. I have been a fan of the zombie genre for some time now, enough that I decided to try my hand at serious writing. My first series, White Flag of the Dead, chronicles the experiences of a man who is trying to survive a plague of the infected dead, and keep his son alive as well. It is a story of desperation, survival, and hope. It is a story that reminds us the most important thing is not just being alive, but living. Hope you enjoy.

Generation Dead 2 Update!

Done.  Assembling and Editing.  Should be off to the publisher by Wednesday.  Thanks for the patience.


  1. Excellent!!!!! I can't wait to here how the brood are doing :)

  2. Any chance of these becoming available on audiobooks?

  3. Screw audio books, I think these books are good enough for a movie series!

  4. Any info on a release date? I am very much looking forward to catching up with all of your beautifully written characters that I have grown to love and care about so deeply. You are truly an amazing author and storyteller! I can not thank you enough for your dynamic and thoughtful prose set amongst a universe I so thoroughly enjoy....the "Zombpocalypse!!" I am an avid reader with a voracious appetite for Zombie fiction and have read just about every single noteworthy author within this genre....and many many more not so noteworthy ....so I can say with the utmost confidense and highly practiced knowledge that you are hands down my most cherished and appreciated author putting pen to paper today. What is most inspiring to me is how even in the face of horribly trying times you have continued moving forward with your beautiful work. I am not an author so I can not comment on the difficulty of your process but I did lose my mother to brain cancer last year and it was nearly impossible for me to wake up every morning and soldier on with my professional life. I am an Executive Chef by trade so a great deal of my work is hands on while being surrounded by my kitchen brigade that doubles as my extended family so I had the luxury of being able to lose myself in the physical process of my craft. I can not even fathom how difficult it could be for a storyteller in your position to sit down at that keyboard and create such thoughtful and engrossing art from within the solitary and grieving universe of your mind. Bravo Mr. Talluto! I would just like to thank you for all of your hard work and for your stories that have so often before and continue to be such an amazing world that I can lose myself in. I have even turned my wife on to the WFOTD universe and for a woman who was strictly a.....ugh....Nicholas Sparks reader...I can think of no greater compliment! I think one of the coolest things for me as a reader is the fact that you live so close my family and I (Orlando Park). I live in Northwest Indiana myself, Dyer too be exact, and it was so neat to follow the brood down Route 30 and into what I can only presume was Dyer itself. When they were in the school (Kahler Middle School for those scoring at home...again that is my presumption) it was so neat to picture it within a landscape that I reside in. If it wasn't so creepy in a "Misery" type of way I would love to buy you a beer sometime or treat you and your loved ones to a meal at my restaurant. I guess what I would like to say is simply thank you!

    1. Leif,
      Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate more than you might know. The times have been trying, but what got me through was the knowledge that my mother was my biggest fan, and I can think of no better way to honor her memory than to be the best author I can be. With that said, I am going to take my writing in a slightly different direction, and see how things go. Anyone for Zombie Westerns?
