Loved this story. It was excellent. Very little Zombie action, a couple paragraphs during the climax, but the setup for the novel this is a prequel to was perfect. I loved the development of this story that showed the disintegration of a marriage, in a realistic way, from the man's point of view that allowed you to identify with a character falling apart in addition to setting up the world for this story and future novel. I can't wait for The New Days: Zero Hour to be released. Normally I do NOT ...more

A believable (??) reason for the existence of zombies. Too bad the man who made the discovery won't be around for the outcome.
Good short story.

Zombie Betrayal is a short story. Joe is down on his luck. He lost his job, his marriage is falling apart and even his son ignores him. There are very few zombies in this book. The book is actually about Joe’s imploding life. Joe notices certain strange things that he doesn’t piece together until the very end 9the zombie things). The author also introduces another character, a writer looking for Joe’s story. This is a big add-on with much ado about nothing. If anything, this is the beginning of ...more

While not your typical zombie title, this short story was fun to write and It sparked an idea that I won't be able to let go until it's all out. There are very few actual zombies in the story, but hopefully once my next book is out this short story will make much more sense to everyone. This title is free at Smashwords or you can get the entire book at Freado.
At the end you'll find the first three chapters of my Prequel to The New Days: The First Son So, I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to

Not really a zombie story, but a pretty decent short story, regardless. Joe and Jenny are an average married couple with a son, Daniel. But when Joe begins to suspect that his wife is having an affair, things start to spiral out of control. Is everything as it seems, or is Joe literally going crazy? A quick, fairly well-written story, but there were several places where a more thorough editing could have helped. Overall, still a fun little read.

Excellent story about the disintegration of a marriage, disillusionment, and betrayal. A little short on the zombie angle, but what I did appreciate was the way the zombie infection was explained. Very well done. Very well written, and now waiting for more.

From the blurb, "Or will the precarious house of card that is his mind come tumbling down upon him?". I want to read this just for the "house of card". I can see why that might be precarious.

I was born in 1974 in Bremerton, Washington. I moved to Bellingham, Washington at the age of four and have been here ever since.
I love living in the Pacific Northwest about two months out of the year. The other ten months it rains.
Constant rain gives me plenty of time to read and write. While I'm hooked on writing horror right now, I enjoy many other genres.
My favorite author is Rob
