I'm Kyle West, author of the Wasteland Chronicles. I live in Oklahoma City and try to write books with lots of action and crazy twists to keep you turning the pages.

You can follow me here, or on Facebook (actually, Facebook is probably your best bet). I also blog fairly regularly at kylewestwriter.wordpress.com. I hope you join me in the Wasteland and any other books/series I plan to write in the future!

I plan on it being three books long, and the first draft of the first book is nearing completion. These books will also be longer than The Wasteland Chronicles. So far, I'm thinking of titling the first book Prophecy.(less)

I wasn't notified of it for some reason. I co-wrote it with my friend, Jelani Sims. It's a zombie survival choose your own adventure. It's a lot of fun, and you should give it a read! It's not as well-written as Wasteland Chronicles (I was in my learning phase) but people have told me they enjoyed it.(less)

I took a short break from writing and now I’m back at it (well, I’ve been back at it for at least a week now, so I may have taken a couple of days off writing at most(this parentheses is unnecessarily long)).


I’m trying some new, something I really haven’t done since at least Evolution. Which feels like eons ago. Usually, I do very little plotting beforehand and just follow where the words will...

A very unique story, and not a typical colonization story (I hesitate to even call it that). It's more literary and thought-provoking rather than action-based, and is outside what I'd usually read, but I ended up enjoying the novel all the same.

“Life sucks, there’s no way around that. But you never know when the good might come. Maybe it won't, but you shouldn’t count it out. And besides, that’s what makes us human, right? Even if it seems impossible, even when there is no point, we fight to the death with smiles on our faces.”
