Jenna Sutton is nothing like the iconic vampire slayer of TV fame.
She’s the antithesis of a cheerleader. She’s not peppy. And she sucks at gymnastics. She has nothing in common with the fictional Buffy, other than being blonde and in high school…
Oh, and occasionally she kills vampires for a living as well as other things that go bump in the night.
Following an attack on an English teacher at a nearby school, it becomes clear this wasn’t an ordinary coyote bite. The gray-green Lichtenberg-like webbing of streaks making their way up Ms. Pruett’s arm can mean only one thing—zombies.
But this isn’t a normal zombie attack. The victims seem to be hand-picked.
Can Jenna complete her investigation without the school administrators figuring out she’s actually a high school student from another school? Will Jenna be able to find out who’s behind these attacks before a full-scale zombie outbreak overtakes the town? And, perhaps most importantly…
Why did her best friend kiss her after all of these years?
What is something unique/quirky about you?
One of the unique things about me is I currently live on the tiny island of Ambergris Caye in Belize. The island is only 26 miles long and just one mile wide at its maximum width. At some places, it’s so narrow you can stand and see both shorelines on either side.
I still pinch myself almost daily. I live in a place where most people dream about vacationing. I don’t own a car. Instead, most personal vehicles are golf carts. And if I’m forced to wear shoes, it’s flip flops. We call sneakers (and other shoes) ‘foot prisons.’ It’s not uncommon to see people barefoot everywhere—even the grocery store! I wake up to the turquoise blue waters to my east and mangrove islands to my west.
We do not have Walmart or Target or Starbucks (although we do have a couple of excellent coffee shops THANKFULLY!). There are actually no fast food chains in the entire country, let alone our little island. No McDonald’s. No Subway. No debate over who has the best chicken sandwich.
My friends back in the States agree it’s an amazing place to visit, but I’m often asked, “Don’t you miss…civilization?”
Sometimes I think I may miss it. I think I miss being able to go to the mall or go see a play. But then I head out to my dock, put my fins and snorkel on and head out to the water. I guess I’ll trade sea turtles and manatees and dolphins for civilization any day of the week.
