For Middle Grade, Middle School and Adults (with a sense of humor)

Let’s be clear… these books are fun and sometimes creepy. Others are just plain silly — even classic!  If you’re a parent and you’re worried about the covers, then don’t buy them for your kid… buy them for yourselves, because they’re really written for anybody who enjoys a good laugh and a good scare.

The Zombie Cat

-We didn’t mean to get into trouble. The trouble always found us…-
A bunch of ordinary kids have extraordinary adventures with witches, tsunami, tossed cookies and toxic chemicals.

What happens when my friend Kovar brings his sister’s cat from the dead? What happens when my cousin Adam finally goes boogie boarding? Was it really a good idea to take candy from the doorstep of the witch’s house? And what about the inter-school game of capture the flag that we played with water guns?

Epic humor, horror and pungent stanks…

The Zombie Cat includes seven stories plus a full length chapter book (novella).
