About the Author

anon tactical


James ‘Remo’ Jackson is a former US Navy Chief Petty Officer with almost two decades of military experience. He was tagged with the nickname ‘Remo’ from a service buddy not from the popular Destroyer series of action novels.  During his time in the Navy, most of it spent as a tactical instructor, he has taken part in fielding teams, Mobile Training Teams, operated with other branches of the US Military, and interacted with other nation’s armed forces. As a contributing author to a few non-fiction works, short manuals and procedural text books, Up From the Depths is his first venture into fiction.

While in the service he developed an interest in the apocalyptic/zombie/horror genre and was disappointed at the lack of novels and films that contained realistic and accurate military depictions in regard to tactics, weapons, and procedures. This inspired him to create the Ward Room so that authors and others could have a resource to use when they needed accurate information about the military.

A wilderness/outdoor survival instructor and disaster mitigation educator, he can normally be found outdoors teaching clueless people the fine art of survival in less than pristine conditions.

He is currently a a roving reviewer for Buyzombie.com, a Military Technical Advisor for Cohesion Press and for several published authors.

  1. CPO Jackson.
    Thank you for bringing a realistic military viewpoint to the zomlit genre.
    As an old jarhead, I always find issue with how many authors describe combat, tactics and weapons.
    Keep up the good work, squid!
