Michael Zomber has dedicated most of his adult life to collecting antique weapons. In his early years as a collector, he specifically focused on American guns and rifles. With some luck and persistence, Zomber somehow personally acquired a firearm that was utilized by George Washington during the American Revolutionary War. Throughout the years, Zomber has held an array of weapons that were made by top manufacturers such as Colt, Springfield and Smith & Wesson. He carefully analyzed the fine details of each gun before deciding to buy it. On the international scale, Zomber has also traveled extensively in pursuit of antique weapons that were used in Asia and the Middle East. For example, Zomber is thrilled to have the opportunity to trade Samurai swords with other collectors all over the world. Being involved in the antique firearms trade has given Zomber plenty to look forward to.
Michael Zomber has also spent a lot of time on the academic aspects of firearms. He is familiar with the rich history of weapons dating back to the 17th century. Having such in-depth knowledge of guns and rifles, it was only appropriate for him to appear on TV shows about these subjects. In fact, the A&E channel encouraged Zomber to make multiple appearances on shows such as Guns of the Famous and Automatic Pistols. In these programs, Zomber takes the role of a weapons historian who has a lot of personal experience in handling the items that are discussed.
As a graduate of multiple universities in the United States of America, Zomber surely holds plenty of reputable academic credentials. His degree in English literature has definitely helped him launch a successful career as a novelist. With a deep interest in American history, it made perfect sense for Zomber to publish novels that were about the U.S. Civil War. Sweet Betsy That’s Me paints a detailed picture of the bloody and tragic nature of this major conflict.
