Dave Marwood is trapped in a soul crushing dead end job. He's in love with his work colleague Melanie and his only friend Gary is a conspiracy theory nut.

His life is going nowhere until he has a Near Death Experience - though Death thinks of it as a Near Dave Experience. He discovers gifts he never knew he possessed and a world he never dreamed existed. A world where the Grim Reaper is a hard drinking, grumpy Billy Joel fan and the undead are bored, lonely and dangerous.

How To Be Dead is the first part in a series of best-selling funny urban fantasy novellas that tells the story of Death and his friends protecting humanity from ghosts, zombies, vampires and medium-sized apocalypses.

After a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.

About the Author

At the age of eight, Dave Turner watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind for the first time and fell in love with science-fiction and fantasy. A year later, he had his first joke published in a national newspaper. When he was twelve, his mother bought him a copy of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and he then realised it was possible to combine the SFF with the gags.

After selling screenplays for films that you will recall you never saw at the multiplex, Dave wrote his novella How To Be Dead in 2013. The first story in the imaginatively titled How To Be Dead series, this was followed by five more books full of ghosts, werewolves, vampires, and medium-sized apocalypses. He’s trying to write a seventh, but he’s just discovered the TV series Fringe and it’s getting really good.

Dave lives in the south-east of England with his wife, three children, two cats, and a crippling biscuit addiction.
