Meet the Author

I was born in 1980, leaving the splendour of Derbyshire for the Midlands at the age of five. I started writing when I was seven due to a love of Tolkien and have been writing ever since, studying English at university and thoroughly enjoying every moment. I currently live in Birmingham with my wife and two daughters, writing as much as I can in the darkness before they wake up. Coffee is both my friend and my enemy.​I don't do moody black and white photos, I don't pay to enter vanity competitions and I have no interest in investing hundreds of pounds just so a couple of people will think I'm bona fide. I welcome criticism as I am always looking to get better.​I just like writing and hope that one day I can support my family with it. If not, I'll just keep plugging away in the wee small hours for my own amusement. Either way, I'll be happy.

    This story reminds me of the movie Ground Hog Day.

    A man relives the same day over and over. Except this goes on for years!

    Trapped on a space station overrun with flesh eaters, the engineer begins each day the same as the one before. He navigates obstacles and zombies, trying to keep more people alive each time.

    While he knows he’s repeating the same day all over again, the other survivors don’t and it doesn’t seem to help when he explains it to them. Each morning he begins again.

    “His calm demeanor was the resignation of the damned.”

    Each time he anticipates what he learned the previous time, making it a bit further towards safety and keeping more people alive.

    “It was just one day, one more, then it would be over. How many times has he said that?”

    But the engineer begins to doubt whether he can do what he wants. Whether he can get most of the people to the escape pod and safety. He’ll just have to keep going through it until he reaches an end, if there is one.

    For a short story this has a lot going on. Black holes, time travel, and space zombies!

    The beginning is a calm introduction to the engineer and what’s going on. Then it quickly becomes a nail biting adventure with people screaming and fleshies gnawing on the poor saps that don’t survive that day.

    It’s hard to find a zombie story with a unique spin on it. Kudos to the author for doing just that, plus giving me an ending that had me reading it twice. I wanted to be sure I got it right.

    This is great Horror writing.  The zombies aren't the only surprise in this book.  You then find out the twist that the protagonist has done this all before.
