My writer friends and I discuss many subjects: Plot bunnies, cooking, shopping, books, chocolate vs. wine. One topic that comes up more often that any of us would expect is the Zombie Apocalypse. Not as a storyline, but as a survivalist exercise.
The first time we did this, we were surprised at the way some of our hobbies turned out to be useful skills when the ravenous horde is at our heels and a double-barreled shotgun stands between us and getting allowed back into our shelter. You know, in case one of us got nibbled and is hiding it. Or in case I’m the slow one that could be tripped so the rest can escape. I don’t want to be the expendable one.
Speaking of shotguns, more than a few of us are skilled with gun, rifle, knife, sword, and crossbow. Everyone knows you have to nail a zombie in the brain to stop it from munching on yours. I’m good with a Glock (with a little refresher practice) and with bow and arrow. One more reason not to trip me during the mad dash to safety!
Baker of brownies and tormenter of characters, Alice Loweecey recently celebrated her thirtieth year outside the convent. She grew up watching Hammer horror films and Scooby-Doo mysteries, which explains a whole lot. When she’s not creating trouble for Giulia Falcone-Driscoll, she can be found growing her own vegetables (in summer) and cooking with them (the rest of the year).
Be sure to check out Alice's new mystery, Nun Too Soon, A Giulia Driscoll Mystery available now from Henery press!
