A darkly funny ZOMBIE ROMCOM of change, love, hope, and redemption. When a contract enforcer for a drug kingpin steals a car and brutally murders a young couple in their home, he begins an epidemic that will turn half the world into flesh eating zombies and leave him Semi Dead!
Kurt Marquart of Horrorgeeklife.com says “Crossley paints a gruesome picture without relying too heavily on red dye number 5. He tells a classic tale for modern readers who have an appreciation for old school situations. When Jack Napier said, “Murder is an art,” he may have been referring to Richard Crossley’s studies in accidental and premeditated death. His disturbingly detailed descriptions of the comedic ways some of his characters cross the plane into oblivion inspire literal LOLs and guffaws. And as zombie tales go, I’ve read too many to count. However, Zombody to Love is a new idea with its own lore on zombie “life” and reason. Well worth your time.”
Richard C. Crossley was born in the ‘dry’ heat of Phoenix, Arizona well over a half century ago. It’s a wonder he’s still kicking, what with all the whacko things he has done since then. He joined the marines at 17, during the Vietnam war. That wasn’t the best of times, but after discharge he met the love of his life and they have been together nearly 50 years, raising 5 awesome children that have gone on to give them 9 grandchildren thus far.
Richard was always a story teller, often times making them up to serve various and sundry purposes. Actual writing, as in learning how to put a tale in some proper format, with at least some semblance of grammar and such, came much later in life. Richard started with poetry and short stories before writing a dozen screenplays.
‘Zombody to Love’ began as a screenplay experiment and evolved into his first novel. The main character, Tapper, shares much with his creator, most especially in the blunt assessment of peoples intentions. Richard found the process of writing, or telling the story, absolutely wonderful, but suspects he’ll never get rich doing it because there are far too many other bullshit things that have to be done just to get someone to read it! But he dreams that someday after he’s gone he’ll be remembered for his efforts. Maybe some cult classic type of thing. In the meantime, he prepares to release his next novel while hanging around the house and irritating his wife… It’s a tough life.
A word from the author about ‘Zombody’
Paul Burt rocks as Tapper. Thank you, Paul, for ‘getting it‘ and bringing the story to life as it was intended. I hope you haven’t gone on and become too big and expensive to do the next one. 🙂
