What is Alice Hearts Welsh Zombies all about?

The World Bog Snorkelling Championship in Wales is being menaced by shambling hordes of the undead.  Fortunately for bog sport enthusiasts, Alice, the former telephone psychic, and Welly, the mostly indestructible man, head of Odyssey International’s Enforcement branch, dedicated to stomping out the supernatural.  But Alice and Welly might not even make it to Wales because a fervent zombie rights activist has stowed his zombie best friend in their plane’s luggage compartment.  Now the zombie plague is spreading at 25,000 feet, complicated by the moral dilemma that zombies just might be people too!  Decaying, infectious, bitey people…

Published by the Workhorsery and available in Ottawa on June 16th (Canada-wide release scheduled for July).

Paperback ISBN:  9780981261249

Come speak up for Zombie Rights!  (Moaning also acceptable.) 

The zombie on the far right may have partied a little too hard...


  1. Congratulations! Is the book being released in the US any time soon? I would really like to buy a copy, but I haven't been able to find one this side of the border.

    1. Thanks, Melanie! I'm not sure when the novel would be in stores south of the border, but you can order it direct from my publisher and they'll ship to the U.S.
