Seeking sanctuary from the walking dead in Alcatraz prison, Halverson and his band of refugees discover that all is not as it seems on the island haven at the Rock.

You and Me, Against the World is the first book in “The Creepers Saga”
There are things worse than death.
Oncologist Russell Thorn knew that was true, but he never imagined anything as horrifying as the virus. The infection has turned humanity into creatures of vicious insanity. The survivors call them Creepers. By day, they relentlessly hunt humans and by night, they burrow underground to await daybreak from their earthen graves.
Doctor Thorn’s rescue by a group of young survivors is just the beginning of a nightmarish journey to find the last safe place on earth. It is a road where they will discover the limits of their own humanity and the costs of love, loyalty, and hope.
Time, however, is running out. The Creepers are evolving and gaining intelligence. Bullets alone will not save the survivors and each must decide the sacrifice they are willing to make to save their friends and to give humanity a chance for one more tomorrow.

For high-schooler Nathan Bristol, finding out his sister’s best friend, Trina Bivens, has come back as a zombie is the least of his problems.

For Jay, it’s irritating because it interrupt’s Jay’s normal comedic attempts at nailing every sweet piece of ass in the area.

Of course, that plan of theirs doesn’t include him and his, so this Marine does what all Marines do best.

A mysterious meteor slams into the Black Rock desert and soon a growing number of zombies are on the loose. Bruce and Conner – hometown friends who experience sudden success early in their careers, followed by a long downward trajectory – encounter the z’s and embark on a quest across the desert to save Conner’s recently rekindled high school love who is attending Burning Man.
