Member Since
December 2018

Zack Smedley was born and raised in southern Maryland, in an endearing county almost no one has heard of. He has a degree in Chemical Engineering from UMBC and currently works within the field. As a member of the LGBT community, his goal is to give a voice to marginalized young adults through gritty, morally complex narratives. He spends his free time building furniture, baking, tinkering with electronics, and managing his obsession with the works of Aaron Sorkin. DEPOSING NATHAN is his first novel.

8) To My Readers

Oh, my dear readers. Well…here we are. I’ve sat at this desk for the past 8 weeks chronicling my journey, and this post tonight marks the end of it. The last chapter of this story, and the beginning of a very different one. It’s astounding how fast these things go by, isn’t it?

Zack Smedley and 123 other people liked Bill's review of The Bridge:
The Bridge by Bill Konigsberg
"Oh, this book.

THE BRIDGE took me two years to write, and they were hard years! I truly believe I was at the edge of my ability the whole time, doing things that were quite possibly beyond me.

And I loved the process! Except when I hated the process." Read more of this review »

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
"No Rainbow Rowell is not the new JKR, stop telling people to cancel a problematic author in favour of another problematic author. Read books by Black and queer authors instead, thanks."

“If you think you need to earn enough points on someone’s rubric for them to accept you, then either you’re wrong to assume they won’t love you for who you are, or they never loved you in the first place.”
Zack Smedley, Deposing Nathan

“I’ve spent every minute of these past months trying to figure out why I feel the things I feel, and if there’s a way to put that into words, I won’t find it. I am who I am. I’ve never acted on less than that, and I never want to.”
Zack Smedley, Deposing Nathan

“...I don't know where I'm going, but I know I'll be there soon.”
Zack Smedley, Deposing Nathan
