Zombie Driver


Zombie shoppingThe house was silent for a while as Roxy and Laurie sat staring at each other, getting used to their new bodies. They opened their mouths to talk, but could no longer form words. Laurie tried to cry, but it seemed that crying no longer worked.

They hugged, both nervous of each other. The smell of each other made them hungry. The temptation to feast was overwhelming.

Roxy stood up and went to the refrigerator. She saw raw hamburger meat on the shelf and grabbed it, throwing half to her friend. They ate hungrily, knowing that raw meat wouldn’t be the meal they craved much longer. For now, it satisfied them.

Laurie stood up and headed for the door, purse over her arm. She looked back at Roxy “uhhhu” was all that came out of her mouth when she tried to speak. It worked though, Roxy got the message and followed her. They crossed the front yard clumsily, stomping on the flowers, until the came to Laurie’s mother’s little red Mini Cooper. The trip to the mall was still on their mind. They were going shopping.

“AHHHHHH” Roxy said as she climbed in the passenger seat.

“OHHHHGGGGG” Laurie answered as she got behind the wheel.

ZombieLogoAs she turned the key, their favorite music came on and their heads bobbed in time to the sound of Maroon Five ‘Move like Jagger’. The music was loud and totally drowned the sound of their wheels crunching over a couple of stray zombies who had made the mistake of getting in their way.

Laurie hit another car as she parked outside the mall but she didn’t notice. The parking attendant started walking in their direction, but when Roxy got out of the passenger seat, he backed off and returned to his little office, where he made a phone call to Mall Security Guard. “Ron, where are you? How quickly can you be over here” he asked.

“On my way, be there in a minute”

It was too late! The two girls were in the office behind him, and they were hungry.

Every now and again, I have to write something completely different, and for me, this is completely different. Have fun with it and check out my other short story and my upcoming novel ‘Dead of July’


My First Book Signing for Girl on the Beach


My Book


Wow, I can’t believe I have a book in print. How exciting is this?

What is even more exciting is my first book signing party tomorrow at my friend Roberta’s house.

The nice thing about this is that all the people who will be attending are friends.

My friends, some of whom I haven’t seen in a very long time, are coming along to support me in my new adventure.

Writing has always been my hobby, and now it is becoming a passion. ‘Girl on the Beach’ is my first book in print. In early May it will be followed by ‘Guy at the Bar’. These are both short stories.


Coming soon

In the September/October, I will be releasing my third book, which is turning out to be a full-blown novel. I am already on page 150 and not finished yet. I have yet to come up with a title for my novel. It is set in Germany in 1982.

Enough for now. I must prepare for the Main Event tomorrow night.
