Product Description

Product Description

North Texas, 2037. It's been three years since the most brilliant Leonid meteor shower recorded. After that night, no one was born, and no one stayed dead. Infrastructure has collapsed. Society has devolved into church-centered villages, gang houses, and survivalist camps. Information travels by word of mouth, and occasionally, by radio broadcast. After picking up a shortwave message from a navy ship in Galveston, Kurt and his daughter Sophie risk their lives as they race from suburban Dallas to the Gulf Coast in hope of rescue, and answers.

300 MILES TO GALVESTON is a Kindle bestseller that blends the science fiction and zombie genres in a tale appropriate for young adult and adult readers. Book two of the trilogy, MISSIONARIES OF OMO, and book three, OYU’S TRIDENT, are available on Amazon now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocking zombie quest does not disappoint 24 Dec 2012
By J'n - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Best post-apocalyptic zombie quest I've read all year! Start with a classic zombie flick- one that doesn't take itself too seriously- something like Shaun of the Dead. Weave into it a taut, deadline-driven race across an inhospitable stretch of Texas. Add literary references to Homer and Joyce, along with the author's sharp eye for authentic Texan characters. Leaven with light social satire and a willingness to flaunt the obvious cliches. What we have here is a fast, fun read, full of cinematic action and just a hint of country-music camp.

Without a doubt, whoever gets the movie rights to this book is going to make a killing. But we're all going to say "I liked the book better."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 30 Dec 2012
By Florence Hager - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For a first book you hit the top with me! Had me hooked at the very start. Could not put it down. A whole new way to write a sf/horror/tence story. Reading the words, showing the story in my mind. Really great book. Looking forward to more books, so write them fast! Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read 28 Dec 2012
By ChandCar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I appreciate the balance you managed to find between deep, serious looks into human nature, and humor. I wonder, are you maybe making fun of yourself and us (but in a nice way) for liking post-apocalypse zombie stories? I read this in one sitting today, and enjoyed it very much. Congratulations on a great first novel! The only thing I'm not happy about is having to wait a whole year for the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 2 Jun 2013
By joanne Willis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Expected zombies got so much more. Story takes place years and people are surviving the best way you can. Message on radio boat has room for forty more. Father and daughter start this journey with an friend. Between their journey and message countdown space available on the boat. Keeps you interested. But when they get on the boat, the truth of what really is going on comes out. Didn't expect that. Can't wait for the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different twist on the undead 4 Jan 2013
By Cheryl Bingham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed all of the different twists that the author added to this story. I wonder whether the added traits in the daughter's blood will help the father and daughter fight the bad guys. The author told his readers that the next part of this story will be out in Dec. of 2013 ! This is way too long to keep us waiting! This makes me mad.. It doesn't take a year to write an installment of a story like this. I hope he gets it written much sooner than this.
