Z is for Zombie series available from Severed Press
When mankind reaches the pentacle of success, there is nowhere to go but down. Set in Texas, most of the world’s population comes down with an infection with hemorrhagic effects that cause massive bleeding and then coma. Only, no one dies.
George, an older, retired policeman and his three elderly friends are suddenly called back into service along with a rag-tag group of survivors trying to get trained well enough to rescue all the survivors they keep finding. A retired Marine, Len, gathers his team with reluctance: Julia: a hot-tempered Hispanic girl, Alex: a gay man, Beth: a woman unsure of her place in the world, Roy: a racist with a bad attitude, Kimball: a quiet cowboy, and many others.
Although they take shelter in a hospital, they face far more than the roving zombies: the last of the government dropped bombs on the cities, survivors are trapped and need help, and raiders are beginning to kill innocents. Is there a responsibility to find justice and save everyone? George begins showing the survivors that the responsibility is now their own. He comes to another realization: each person must now decide his own fate and if that means going out on terms others don’t like, then so be it.

Q and A
Is there a message in the series?
Zombies are the vehicle for my story telling, but the message is about dignity in life and death, and having the right to decide upon individual terms for morality and insanity.
"Great series of books! Realistic perils and triumphs. Awesome and believable characters. Would recommend to every zombie fan! Definite must read!"
"I really enjoyed this book, mainly because of the great characters! And, when I say characters, I DO mean characters..."
"This writer here can tell a good story and really knows how to capture the reader's emotions and attention. One last thing is that what sets this book apart from other books is that it relies on its characters and how they cope with the apocalypse, similar to the series: The Walking Dead. This book is far more then JUST a zombie book; In two words this book is: An emotional roller coaster."
