In mid-2016 Javan Bonds published his first novel FREE STATE OF DODGE, the first book in a dystopian series about America in decline and its rebirth. He is the Amazon Best Selling author of the Zompoc series, Still Alive. The series follows a small group of survivors in a small southern town as they try to keep their wits about them and make a new life in a world overrun by naked, blue-skinned, yellow-eyed zombies that are nocturnal and spew shit on everything.
Bonds has had to overcome numerous obstacles in writing as well as living his daily life. Diagnosed at the age of eleven with Friedreich's Ataxia (FA), (a progressively degenerative neuromuscular disease under the umbrella of the Muscular Dystrophy Association), slowly being robbed of his physical abilities. Bonds became wheelchair bound in 1999 but that was only the beginning of his setbacks. His sight began to diminish in 2010 to the point he is now legally blind and his hearing began failing to the point he now can't hear individual voices in a noisy room. In spite of all of this, he continues work tirelessly seven days a week on his writing never letting his disability rule him and has lived, loved, and laughed often.
In late 2015 at only 28 years old Bonds was told he may have only a short time left due to the ravages of FA on his heart. After learning this he's been hard at work to complete his other novels to have them finished before his time in this world runs out.
Javan has these words of wisdom to offer for others stricken by a life-shortening illness, "Live your life. Light your candle on both ends and let it burn. It may burn out faster but your flame will burn brighter than some who live much longer
