With the wonderful weather we've been having, it's felt like summer for weeks but now it's official. Summer is here!

Because I was a Christian, could I only write Christian Fiction now? Zombie fiction had been a huge part of my writing since I started back in 2012. How was I supposed to write about such horrors now?
