Michael Zomber can vividly recall the experience that inspired him to become an expert on weapons. As a child, he often embarked on many exciting adventures that were sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America. One day, the young Zomber entered a general store and noticed a model 1873 “Trapdoor” Springfield that was proudly displayed by the owner. After carefully examining this iconic rifle, Zomber developed a keen interest in American history and firearms. He spent most of his adult life collecting various types of weapons that have been used in armed conflicts by the U.S. military.
Eventually, Zomber also expanded his interest in weapons on an international scale. He has extensively toured specialty museums and other facilities that have unique firearms and armor. In fact, Zomber has developed a particular fascination with oriental weapons. He even has a personal collection of Samurai swords and other relevant accessories that have been used by traditional Japanese warriors and other members of Japan’s elite classes. With decades of experience in studying and collecting firearms, Michael Zomber was surely the ideal candidate to appear on the History Channel’s shows about American and international firearms. For example, he has provided interesting commentary during his appearances on Guns of the Famous and Million Dollar Guns. These specific programs are about the firearms that have been used by celebrities, notorious criminals and other prominent people in history.
Michael Zomber has also gained quite a solid reputation as an author. His portfolio includes several notable novels such as Sweet Betsy That’s Me and A Son of Kentucky. Told through the perspectives of ordinary folks, these books take readers back to the antebellum era and the U.S. Civil War. Park Avenue is a title that slightly allowed Zomber to shift the focus away from violence.
Zomber developed his professional writing skills as a student at numerous colleges and universities including Villanova and UCLA. He studied English literature along with psychology, which are essential subjects for anyone who’d like to enter the competitive niche of book publication.
