Bloody Zombies

Bloody Zombies is a very silly novella I wrote about an English teacher called Boadicea Black who goes on a bad date and fights zombies. It was all kinds of fun to write and I’d like to do a sequel.

Here’s the blurb:

No one is saying that teachers at England’s all-girls high schools aren’t a resilient bunch – certainly not to their faces – but it is fair to say that battling zombies is not a subject dealt with in any detail in the course of their postgraduate education.

That’s the problem that Miss Black is up against. An English teacher bearing the scars of many a battle over adverbs and prepositions, she is nonetheless somewhat perturbed to come up against a ravening horde of the undead in the course of an otherwise promising date. Still, you can’t keep a good woman down, and she soon rises to the challenge with hockey-stick-wielding gusto.

This 10,000 word quick read is intended for consumption by the subsection of the book-buying population that likes its British comedy served with a side order of horror, a group the author hopes is large and in possession of deep pockets.

The cover for "Bloody Zombies": a pink background with grey zombie hands reaching up from the ground.
