About the author

WW Mortensen

WW Mortensen lives in Brisbane, Australia. Juggling full-time work, a young family and a passion for writing, he subsists on late nights, early mornings and a little too much coffee. 

After attaining a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Film and Media, he spent twelve years in the print advertising industry. Currently, he works for the Queensland government.

A huge fan of horror movies, sci-fi, action and adventure stories, he draws his inspiration from a number of genres, and his spare time is largely devoted to honing his writing skills.  

Eight is his first full-length novel, in which, deep in the Amazon, the solution to the global energy crisis has been found… at a price.

He is currently working on his next horror-thriller, due in 2017.
