Got woken at 3 AM by a hailstorm, couldn’t go back to sleep, and have been watching the Walking Dead TV marathon ever since. I have to admit, at first I didn’t know what my hubby and kids saw in this show, but now I’m hooked! It’s much more than rotting flesh and gore. There’s actually some romance and relationship stuff.
I also find myself wondering how I’d do if I were in a post-apocolyptic situation. I think I might do all right. I was a Girl Scout and can improvise a stove out of a coffee can and a candle. I was also the youngest of 4 kids and learned the art of self defense very early. When you can’t move your arms and legs, a good head butt works every time.
What about you? Do you like this show? What skills do you have that might come in handy in a post-apocolyptic world?
(Isnt’ this a great photo? This is from the Montgomery County Book Festival, where they had a makeup artist turn teens into zombies.)

Haha! Our terrier mix and shepherd mix are certainly selective, too. They hear "treat" without fail, but "down" or "no!" don't always register. Raggs is such a cute name!
Reggie certainly looks happy! My own dog, Raggs, has "selective" hearing--and he's not well trained. But. Our dogs are family and we do love them.
Thanks, Barbara! I wish I could write faster, too! My ideas are backing up in my head. : ) I wish my brain had a USB port where I could automatically download the stories from my mind to the page. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! I'm hard at work on the second one, A Trip with Trouble.
I LOVED getaway with Murder. The second book can't be published soon enough. Can you write any faster? ;-)
Thanks so much, Gerrie! So glad you enjoyed the book, and your kind words put a big smile on my face. The second book in the series, A Trip with Trouble, will release next fall. I'm looking forward to it, too!
