“I'm American so I believe in God. I mean, even if people "invented" God instead of the other way around, God is "real" as far as I'm concerned. Just because something didn't exist before you invented it doesn't mean it doesn't exist after you invented it. You don't stand in front of a speeding care because it's an "invention" and there was a time when it didn't exist. No. You get the hell out of the way.”
James Marshall, Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies

“Then, dramatically, all of a sudden, totally out of nowhere, and to my utter astonishment, absolutely nothing happens.”

Ivan Thanks for the friend request, I loved Ninja Versus Pirate featuring Zombies!!! I was waiting for my mom at Barnes and Noble (though not holding her purse thankfully) and just happened to pick it up cuz of the cover (yes, I'll admit I do occasionally engage in the taboo of judging a book by it's cover). After reading the description I not only had to buy it but got another copy for my brother. Totally our type of humor! It rocked, keep up the good work!
I didn't realize the sequel was out already, I'll have to pop over to Amazon after this.

Ðani Ðunphy I loved your books! I just happened to pick up Ninja Versus Pirate on a whim, i think it was the Featuring Zombies that intrigued me. I was in the need for a new book and haven't touched much on the zombie genre so i went for it. I absolutely loved it, and had to have the next one. I really enjoyed the differences between Guy Boy Man, and Buck Burger. Im looking forward to meeting the Albinos. Im not ready to see the zombies yet myself, however it has been very enjoyable reading about them.

Thanks so much, Tasha-Lynn! No, you don't need to read them in order. Zombie Versus Fairy totally works as a stand-alone. I really hope you like it! Thanks again!

Tasha-Lynn So I just picked up Zombie verses fairy...at my local bookstore and THEN realized that it was book 2 of a series... do I need to read them in order or can I get that one next and read it? oops!

Julie-anne I am LOVING your book. So damn funny.
