Double Dead - FB Book Release Party

Double Dead Graphic

Dead Man's Land follows Joel and his band of survivors as the try to make it by in a zombie infested world. In this book, an old villain reappears, twice as deadly, and a new enemy comes on the scene.  It seems that not only the survival of Joel and all his friends are at stake, but maybe the fate of humanity.
Forget America is the final book in the Forget the Zombies series and follows Grant and his rag-tag band of fellow survivors as the trek across the country in search of safety.  The only that stands in their way is an group of crazy people and horde of zombies.  This is nothing new, but this time they might not make it.

As for mysteries and crime fiction, my twin brother and I have created a private eye, Dan Daulton, who works the streets  of Columbus, Ohio,  The premiere book in the Dan Daulton series has been delayed, but we hoped to have it on the market in late 2013. 


I only recently turned to writing in the horror genre and have primarily focused on the zombie sub-genre.  Like many a people my age, the effect of George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" still resonates over the years.  With the advent of "The Walking Dead," I have to ask, what is there not to love about zombies?
