A few months ago my good friend and fellow Zombie Survival Crew commander Juliette Terzieff emailed me, flailing and telling me to watch that night’s episode of Talking Dead. Thinking she’d lost her ever-loving mind (again) I tuned in…
and forgot how to think for a moment.
Live on air, IronE Singleton announced he was working on an autobiography with Juliette. Of course, I did what any good friend would do–happy-squeaked and told her she was indeed insane for taking on something so big.
After weeks of waiting to hear more news about the book, they’ve finally released the cover image and opened up pre-orders for Blindsided by the Walking Dead on IronE’s site.
On the streets of Atlanta, the fight to survive is a daily battle.
From the drug-infested corners of one of the city’s worst housing projects, to alleyways filled with ravenous zombies– Blindsided by the Walking Dead examines one man’s battle to overcome the violence, drugs, and crime of the ‘hood; starting with a young IronE Singleton determined to succeed despite an abusive mother, an absent father, and the temptations of instant gratification inherent with the thug life.
Football and Faith in God become IronE’s allies in his quest to escape and help him reach for the lights of the University of Georgia’s football field and theater stages.
After years of struggle–failed businesses, small roles, and an ill-fated trip to Los Angeles–IronE snags his major breakthrough role, playing the kind of drug-dealing, gun-toting thug he would have become on the streets, in The Blind Side.
When he is cast as T-Dog on AMC’s international mega-hit “The Walking Dead”, IronE examines through art what humanity is about and what it means to truly survive against all odds. Alongside cast mates Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey DeMunn, and Andrew Lincoln, IronE fought, gagged, and sweat his way into the hearts and minds of millions around the world.
