Many people have written about the End of Days, none of them got it right. The Apocalypse was zombie, for sure. It was nasty and frightening - and of course deadly, very deadly.

Question is, did you imagine it to be quite as slimy? Quite as bodily invasive? There are things on this earth you may never have considered. For instance, did you know that you can get bilharzia from walking barefoot or wading in shallow, still water? What the hell is bilharzia, I hear you ask? It's a parasitic flatworm (see book cover) that resides in its victims' intestines or urinary tract.

What if you took this thing you never ever considered before, this bilharzia, and changed its DNA to change its behaviour in the human body? What could you get? The 'Pocalypse, of course!

Sadly, I have to announce that I’m real-world on the money with respect to my book, Squatters. I hate being right! My goal when writing a book is to deliver something that hasn’t been done before, a task that becomes harder each day, especially with the unrelenting pace of science in our modern world. I…

Kill Zombie!

August 2, 2015

A worthy sentiment, but on reflection, the name of this film, Kill Zombie!, is a little like that Ronseal ad, ‘it does what it says on the side of the can’. Kill Zombie! – I’m not going to tell you what this film is all about, I’ll keep you in suspense. It’s original title is…

Fifty Shades Of Grey Matter

February 12, 2015

“I still don’t know why we have to see this film. I’ve heard it’s a pile of …” Gary Newman’s whinging was interrupted by his girlfriend who had heard this same chant a number of times earlier in the day. “Enough, already. I want to see it,” she said, hugging him. “You never know, we…

Extra Terrestrials We Are

January 28, 2015

We have seen innumerable articles of late that tell of our origins being extra-terrestrial. Maybe ET didn’t need to go home – perhaps he was already home on Planet Earth. Although zombies are occasionally linked to the sci-fi genre I think most readers of the zombie genre do not associate it with the potential that…

Teleport – A Equals B?

January 24, 2015

I have touched on this subject before, but considering our technological advancement will cause us one day to produce something not entirely unlike Star Trek’s teleport technology I think this subject needs to be understood before putting a sentient being through this process. We all know about teleportation, right? We stand in teleport chamber A…

ETNO Alert!

January 21, 2015

I never cease to be amazed at the discoveries we are making in space. Ever since the Hubble Space Telescope had its short-sightedness cured it seems to have led to an exponential growth in planetary discovery. In conjunction with various space probes and the amazing feat of landing one on an asteroid it seems as…

      thanks very much, Katie. Sorry for the delay in response, been starting a new business!

    Really enjoyed these zombie books. Much better storylines than some of the terriblly poorly constructed stuff out there. Good storylines, believable characters and a very clever twist at the end.
