Runner-up in the General Fiction Category of the 2012 HALLOWEEN BOOK FESTIVAL **Optioned for film**

Medicine meets horror in this thrilling escape tale about the evil men do in the name of progress.

Welcome to the Nixon Healing and Research Center, playground for the maniacal Dr. Howard Nixon whose medical research has him dabbling in the undead and has the women of Strandville disappearing.

Desperate to find a cure for the lethal virus which turns its victims into zombies, Nixon kidnaps Miranda Penton, a security recruit with a past that won't let her go. He doesn't count on anyone coming looking for her, least of all her ex-husband, Scott.

A warning call brings Scott to Strandville where he bands together with a team of locals determined to bring their own loved ones home. Together, they infiltrate Nixon's staff, hatching a plan that releases not only the surviving women, but the virus on those left in the hospital.

Nixon locks down the center to contain the spread, turning patients, visitors, and staff into a dangerous horde that is almost impossible to escape. Miranda and the others fight for their lives. The town of Strandville is ground zero for the zombie apocalypse and Miranda must get free because the fate of humanity lies with her unborn child.

She is the author of DEAD SPELL, PAYBACK, CURE, and AFTERBIRTH. (Books 1&2 of the Strandville Zombie Series) I am Deaf. I have difficulty speaking and signing coherently because of an unnamed neurological condition, which I call Cerebral Palsy for now. Creating is way to express my soul - voice in a way that others can hear and respond to. When I create, it feels like something spiritual guides me. I need to continue my spiritual path, and that is through expressing myself. Art connects me to my Spiritual Self. My art flows from my Spiritual Self. I am self taught. I work with acrylics, pencil, charcoal, pen, pastels, felt pen, collage, and my cat. I am also a potter, writer, poet, actress, dancer, music composer, and musician. I have also created, written, produced, and directed a video. I sometimes mix these media to create something. Each piece of my art is unique; I paint slowly and meticulously for one, and fast and impatient for another. Each has its own 'personality': One will have vibrant, wild, lush colours, and another will have shy, withdrawn, tame, muted colours. Some are whimsical, and others are serious. My work shows how I feel right at the moment of creation. I have different inspirations: a memory, a movie, an image, another piece of art, visions, words, myself, an event, and my cat! What will come out, I never know. My preferred subjects include nature,magic, hidden words, and my cat. I have been involved with an art experience group for the past year. This has enabled me to explore my creativity in a supportive envrironment with other deaf artists. This weekly group has acted as a springboard to encourage me to take professional classes and to show my art publicly. Over the past two years, my work has been exhibited in several galleriies, icluding: the CityScape Art Space, the Artists Helping Artists in Burnaby, a deaf art show at the Vancouver Community College, and Art Pars, and the Harmony Arts Festival this year with their 'Art Beat'! I am excited with the growing interest in my work and my evolution as an artist. With my arts and through my images, I can be heard. I believe this is my way to freedom, and spirituality. Most importantly, art is my way out of that well.
