Worse Than Dying

After his father suffers a nervous breakdown, Noah Barnes is tasked with caring for his family in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. A dark novella about fight and family, as one survivor confronts untold loss and struggles with unimaginable choices.

"Beautiful. If a sequel isn't forthcoming, it's a shame."

NOTE: This is not, not, NOT a children's book. This is a horror novella with mature themes that would most likely warp a child for years to come.  But you'll probably like it.
