Hugh Williams is a practicing attorney and author of zombie fiction and detective thrillers.
His first novel, The Trek to Elysium Chronicles: Volume 1: A Zombie Apocalyptic Tale, was published in 2015. He completed the second book of the series "The Trek to Elysium Chronicles: Survival Guide" early in 2016. He is currently working on the final book of the series, "The Trek to Elysium Chronicles: Volume 3: End Game" and expects that to be finished mid-2018. Williams also rewrote his first book and now a 2nd edition of the first book is available for all. His newest book, "The Incident" represents a departure of sorts from the straight Zombie genre. It is a crossover Zombie/Thriller book. His first detective thriller, "The Rixey Files: The Quest for Caesar's Medallion" was released April 1, 2018. The second book in The Rixey Files Series: The Quest for The Chalice of Power is scheduled for release March 2020.

Williams graduated cum laude from Illinois State University with Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Political Science. He received his Juris Doctor degree from Southern Illinois University School of Law.
An avid coin collector and Diamond Life Master in the American Contract Bridge League, his writing has been influenced by the movies of George Romero, the Resident Evil series, and zombie fiction by Bobby Adair, T.W. Piperbrook, JL Bourne, Harry Harrison, and Dashiell Hammett.
