You would think that discovering that you are unable to die in a world overrun by the undead horde, populated by only zombies and a few desperate human survivors, would be considered an advantage perhaps even a blessing yet to Gracie it’s a curse.
The truth is that when Gracie discovered that she couldn’t die she was actually trying to do just that and like so many others saw suicide as a merciful release from the loneliness and hardship of being forever hunted in a world that no longer has the amenities that they once took for granted.
Yet just because Gracie couldn’t be killed by her own had did not mean that she could not be turned or suffer pain or injury and the dead were all to keen to do her harm even if they didn’t seem to see her as a food source.
Gracie, it seems, is left with only one choice and that is to take this new life that has been thrust upon her and that she has found herself unable to put an end too and make it worth living…
…to Gracie this means leaving her two bedroom semi, with redundant gas central heating, no power and no water supply, and finding herself a new home where she can begin her new life and make it work for her.
Gracie soon discovers that life surrounded by the ravenous and mindless undead really is nothing like the movies portray it to be.
Talia mason is the author of The Hidden Heir, The E Killer and Aynesworthy House (all available on amazon.com).
Talia lives in a large village in the countryside of Yorkshire, England with the youngest of her three daughters, her partner of ten years and her three cats and three dogs.
Now in her early forties, with her youngest child in the final years of her high school education, Talia who had trained in canine psychology has turned a passion for books into a writing career and is currently working on her fifth book.
You would never guess that this prolific scribbler of tales could barely read at all until the age of twelve and left school with little reading ability and so when one particularly unpleasant (and rude) teacher angered the then precocious child sufficiently to cause her to sit up all night just so that she could tell that teacher what she could do with that book.
From then on books became an obsession, an addiction, much to the chagrin of her friends and family.
As an imaginative child she found that books could take her anywhere and everywhere that she might want to go, she could slay dragons, ride rapids, wage magical wars or just solve a crime all without leaving her chair and it also gave the fourteen year old Talia something to do whilst she was supposed to be tidying her bedroom, procrastination between the covers of a book.
Yet upon the completion of some of those many books Talia was often dissatisfied with either a plot twist or the ending and so she took to writing her own tales, as there is no point in complaining about a thing if you are not going to try to do something about it.
Then was born a new obsession, writing, weaving tales or just writing for the sound of the flow of the words.
Within months she had filled notebook upon notebook with tales, ideas and interesting phrases.
The notebooks then filled shoe box upon shoe box and after almost thirty years of reorganising and restacking these boxes to fit them into the average family home, and after repeatedly hearing the words can you do something with these boxes, she created her first book.
That book was The Hunted Heir and was followed by THE E KILLER and AYNESWORTHY HOUSE
