Salt Lake City Author Darren Lamb is scheduled to autograph copies of his books as part of the Penguinate.com table at Ogden UnCon. Lamb will be appearing for one hour on Saturday June 8, 2019, from 1 pm to 2 pm.
Lamb’s books are known for combining gritty action with Buddhist philosophy. In “Rebirth: A Zombie Tale,” Lamb explores what a zombie apocalypse would mean for the doctrine of reincarnation. Lamb’s Sea of Sin series follows the adventures of a Catholic priest, a Buddhist Monk, an ex-Marine diner owner and a Life-Flight nurse as they confront their own basic natures and the worst of humanity.
“The spiritual component of my books is personal and important,” says Lamb. “I use the story and the philosophy to enhance the reading experience while delivering a great story.”
Lamb and his daughter wrote and illustrated the children’s book: “The Worst Buddhist.” As an artist, Lamb has created geek-related Buddha statues and crayon art.
Lamb, a former Marine, is an active Buddhist who offers meditation classes in Salt Lake City. He graduated from Salt Lake Community College with an Associate’s degree and from the University of Utah with a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and English Literature. Lamb is a self-proclaimed geek whose philosophy often refers back to movies and comic books to explain concepts that many find challenging.
