Viruses mutate. Some mutations are worse than others.

Ebola, one of the most feared of the hemorrhagic diseases, has begun spreading across the borders of West African countries. The CDC and the World Health Organization have admitted they are losing control over the disease. Some hint at a possible worldwide pandemic.

At exactly this point in time, Emma Johnson graduates from nursing school. She takes a job in an Ebola treatment camp inside Liberia, West Africa. The camp is state-of-the-art. It's run by the CDC and the World Health Organization, and protected by the U.S. military.

Emma uncovers a secret about this facility: medical experimentation is being conducted along with treatment. Whether or not Emma ever manages to escape the camp, she's determined to get the story out. She has intimate knowledge of a biological horror being secretly unleashed upon the world.

NOVELETTE. GENRES: Zombie Fiction, Apocalyptic Science Fiction, Conspiracy Fiction, Horror.

Mutation Z: The Ebola Zombies is the first book in the Mutation Z series. In the next book, Mutation Z: Closing the Borders, the zombie virus crosses geographical boundaries and goes increasingly out of control.

"It looked like exactly the kind of book that I'm interested in and I was right! I read it in a single sitting, as I couldn't possibly put it down, and it was the realism that hooked me from the start...I am VERY excited to hear that this novelette will be growing into a series! Especially because of the ending that leaves you with buggy eyes and an impressive jaw gape." – Rebecca Engelmann, Sister Sinister Speaks Blog

"The plot sucked me in, as it was well done and believable. This take on the pandemic angle was well done, and...interesting to see a zombie outbreak from start. I have to say this kept me on the edge of my seat, and made me want to wash my hands repeatedly." – Shandy Jo at Mama Knows Books

"Wow. Powerful writing whisks you away, drops you into a dirty, steamy camp in West Africa, and bombards you with conspiracies, horror, and real life characters who could walk off the pages." – Laura, FUONLYKNEW Blog

"One of the best parts about Mutation Z was the virus itself. Not only is it scary because it deals with Ebola but also because it only works during the full moon. Any other time of day and those injected with the serum would seem just as normal as you or me making them perfect carriers or weapons to spread the virus far and wide." – Kristin at Blood, Sweat and Books

"This conspiracy, horror novella scared the bejesus out of me. It started out fast and never let up. Every time I turned around, something was there to creep me out. I mean, think about it, a highly infectious disease is lurking, just waiting for you to make a mistake. A conspiracy is operating behind closed doors and when Emma stumbles in there is no turning back. I love this series and would highly recommend it to all horror lovers." – Sherry Fundin, Blogger and Reviewer
