Read full description of the books Sleep With One Eye Open:The Zombie Apocalypse doesn’t start in America, China or Europe. It begins in our own backyard; Sydney, Australia.
It’s 2019 and the annual Zombie Horde Parade is about to commence in Sydney. Instead of the usual cast of jovial participants in fancy dress, the Sydney City CBD is inundated by a horde of zombies flooding out from the underground train station in Hyde Park and rampaging into an unsuspecting public. A large scale brawl erupts in the CBD as people suddenly realise that they aren’t just defending themselves, they’re fighting for their lives.
We follow John’s journey as he tries to escape the carnage and savagery. By the time he reaches safety, the media have only sketchy reports of the morning’s events; while the police and riot squad are at a loss to understand the motives of the group responsible for the lethal riot that continues to rage. No matter who John runs into, their story is always the same; they were attacked by a group of psychopaths with an unrelenting thirst for violence and murder.
The scourge of the undead rapidly spreads across the city as people make things worse by engaging in looting and vigilantism. With their attention diverted from the real enemy, hordes of zombies easily overrun entire suburbs within hours. Just when things look to be at their worst, the entire city is plunged into a blackout, allowing looters and thugs to add to the increasingly insurmountable difficulties people are already facing. John’s struggle to survive begins with the knowledge that nowhere is completely safe.
He knows that Sydney will inevitably fall into the grasping hands of the undead, and the thugs and other lowlifes will be there to victimise those not strong or smart enough to escape the necropolis. This is the story of an ordinary man who uses courage and guile to achieve the seemingly impossible.
Read information about the authorI have been an avid fan of horror stories since early childhood. It didn't matter if the story came from books, comics or movies, as long as it was dark. My favourite stories were the tales that sounded like they might actually be true. As I entered my teenage years, the local library and video store featured among my regular haunts.
Since my mid-teens, I have studied a variety of martial arts and self-defence styles. I rose through the ranks where I gained the opportunity to teach, and share my knowledge. Driven by my dark imagination and the ability to phrase things in a way that people instantly understand, I saw an opportunity to entertain as well as educate. I combined my life-long interest in horror stories with my many years of experience in self-defence to write my first novel Sleep With One Eye Open, in 2014.
Many of my readers have contacted me to let me know they enjoyed the story because it was told in such a way that they could easily imagine the horrific events taking place in the street outside their homes. Without exception, each one demanded to know when the sequel was scheduled for release.
Devoting most of my spare time to writing, I completed Sleep With One Eye Open: Ghost, in September 2015. The story is more unnerving than the original, and far more devious.
I also write a blog on the first Thursday of each month. The posts are based on events and situations in my life that inspired me to become self-reliant and a resource for those around me. Blog topics including: self-defense, disaster preparedness, home security and camping tips.
I live on the Mid North Coast, NSW Australia, where I am currently working on my third novel. My other interests include archery, kayaking and listening to music.
