In my world, a bite means a change to a zombie, but there are also blood infections. Get splashed with zombie blood, and you’ll change but no one knows how soon. It turns people into ticking time bombs. That’s what happened to Samantha, and to the girl Trevor loves. They’re infected, but not changed into zombies, yet.
When someone does change, they go through stages of madness and rage. They’re still fast. Eventually, zombies become slow and docile. They will wander with sheep in a field, but they can get aggressive again if provoked. Don’t provoke the zombies, it gets ugly fast.

They selected it right away (look for the audio drama online!).
Next, I turned the idea into a short for the Live and Let Undead themed anthology. And that sold right away.
At that point, it seemed a no-brainer to expand the world I’d come to love. I already had Samantha, who is searching for her brother’s murderer. For the novel, I added the story of Trevor, a teenager from a downtrodden planet. He wants to fight against the zombies swarming his world, but opportunity is scarce. He’s working as zombie-bait for the local militia when the girl he likes becomes infected. They get sent to the Sanctuary Dome, a punishment that’s actually a big improvement, but he’s not infected and is trying to save everyone, even his home world, from this disease.

New Romantic-Horror Anthology

I love trying new things, so I joined three other authors for the Meant to Be Press romance anthology Meant to Be…SPOOKED. My short story, “Cordial Foe,” is urban fantasy set in Washington State.

 

Falling in love is scary,
especially in these four witty,
otherworldly tales from Meant to Be Press

Sometimes digital love is all you got.
