Michael Zomber is among the most passionate individuals when it comes to collecting antique arms. Zomber is mainly interested in Japanese, Islamic, American, and European arms from the 16th through to the 19th century. He writes screenplays and historical books. His work is unique as he keeps his characters real.
His Early Life
Mr. Zomber was born and raised in the US capital, Washington D.C. He is married to Andrea. Together they have two children – Gabriella and Christopher.
Michael Zomber is a good storyteller and his story telling abilities are evident from his numerous screenplays and published novels including Shogun Iemitsu, Jesus, and the Samurai, A Son of Kentucky, Sweet Betsy That’s Me: A Child of the Civil War. Zomber maintains that his wife is the force that propelled him into writing screenplays.
His novel Shogun Iemitsu tells the story of Hideo and Kobiyashi, two young Samurai who fall in love after taking part in the same festival. Eventually, the two defy the Tokugawa government. A Son of Kentucky is based on the Johnson family. Josiah Johnson is a peasant farmer who refuses to use slave labor on his firm in western Kentucky. This decision may lead to unrest in the country.
Sweet Betsy That’s Me dwells on Betsy’s life on the Western Kentucky farm. The events of the story unfold after the battle of Gettysburg. The story follows Betsy until she becomes a grown woman. Her life takes a different twist when she is forced to kill a Klansman when defending a young black man. She starts a new life in Early, a one-horse town.
Another one of his work is Park Avenue. It is the story of an art collector selling his collection to enable his children to escape Nazi Germany. Henry Dryden, United States Army Sergeant, stumbles upon the self-portrait by Vincent Van Gogh. Dryden keeps the painting for several years before asking his grandson to sell it after proving its authenticity.
