How would I survive a zombie apocalypse?
If we ever truly had a zombie apocalypse, the first thing I would do to survive is to grab my daughter’s metal baseball bat, my husband’s motorcycle helmet, my mountain boots, a flashlight, and a jar of Vick’s vapor run (zombie’s stink!). I’d have to use a bat for my main weapon because the time it would take me to figure out how to use a gun, I’d be craving brains myself. Realistically, my house wouldn’t make the best shelter in a zombie attack, so I’d load up my family into our S.U.V., pack my Kindle, bottled water and whatever non-perishable foods I could get my hands on, and head out of town towards Alaska, where the Grizzlies can help lower the zombie troops. Then, I’d look for an awesome cabin to hideout in near a lake (to fish and use the natural resources), kick the owner’s zombie ass (can I say that?) and wait it out.
I live in Minnesota with my husband Dave and two daughters, Cassie and Allie. I run a small daycare in my home and have to say the children really do inspire me to write. I have always been a “closet writer” and have many unfinished stories that I hope to someday return to. My first published fictional story, Zombie Games (Origins) was written as a tribute to my own family and their compulsion for playing Plants V.S. Zombies. I started imagining what it would be like if zombies did end up at our doorstep and what would happen.
Obviously, I had to add humor to the story because that’s just how I roll. I mean, seriously, life is pretty darn funny at times and why shouldn’t the undead zombies be? I’ve also included characters similar to my own children and husband, which will probably be a huge source of embarrassment for them when they actually read the books someday (especially when the girls are in high school!). My eleven year old, Cassie, does know karate, my daughter Allie is a little princess, and my husband Dave needs to join a support group to help him fight his video game addictions.
I just finished the third installment of Zombie Games (3) Dead Endz. This book has a lot of things going on and I think it’s the best in the series so far. I don’t want to give away too much, especially if you haven’t read (Origins) part one or (Running Wild) part two, but the heroes in this story have finally made it to the C.D.C. in Atlanta to try and meet up with their family and friends. Upon arrival they find that the chaos continues and that the zombies aren’t the only dangers lurking in the big city. The game continues with new players, several dangerous adversaries, and more than one princess that now needs saving.
