Organ House

Book 1. Organ House 

My first book. 

I was living in Indonesia between 2000 and 2003. I heard a story that a Chinese Indonesian couple had lost a child in China at some point and I found the story to be interesting.  

Not knowing if this was a true story or not I decided to believe it so I could take it to the next level. The story went as such. A couple had lost their son on the streets of some city in China. Years later a friend spotted the child on the street and recognized the son. Long story short, the child was alive but had his tongue cut out and a scar on his side.  

The child was abducted and had an organ removed and yet somehow was alive and on the street. Maybe he was to be cut up again before being killed. I do not know if the story were true but that is how Organ House was born. 

The book. 

I picture the setting of a large Manor and the story to be taking place in some Eastern European country or Britain. Either one would do.  

A large manor where the grounds are kept as neat and as clean as though they belonged to royalty. The idea of Harry Potter comes to mind. Where kids are eating in a large hall with uniforms in silence. Whenever visitors came, the kids would never dare to look up or look around. The idea was that outside and in certain areas inside the manor, the place is seemingly perfect. Yet behind closed doors and in private, the kids are treated in horrible and horrific ways.  

While I am very proud of my first book, admittedly it is odd. It has four chapters. More like a movie script with a beginning, middle and end. Hey, it was my first book, right?  

The title. 

Just as it implies Organ House is a place where children are catalogued and kept for waiting recipients. The slogan, “No child leaves alive.” is also the mission statement for the facility.  

The idea of organ harvesting and children seems to fit very well for a twisted mind and a horror story. Oddly enough I am not a horror movie fan, nor am I one who has a twisted mind. Let’s call it a creative process. Yes, that seems to work well. 

The back of the book. 

Sam is an ordinary 12- year-old boy, living an ordinary life until it comes to a screeching halt. Sam’s immediate family dies in a terrible accident, and he is sent to an orphanage. He soon learns that in this orphanage no one ever gets adopted and no one ever leaves alive. He befriends Fred the gardener at the orphanage, learning the secrets of this strange new place. When one of Sam’s friends goes missing, he decides to investigate. When further horrific events happen, Sam and his friends plot an escape. Soon Sam discovers that Fred’s roots grow much deeper than being a gardener. When a couple comes to adopt a child, Sam sees that Fred suddenly changes. Within the confusion, Sam and his friends make plans to escape the hellhole they are in. 

No child leaves alive.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
