Monster Mayhem series on Wattpad

Welp, it all started with Zombie Shark Highway, and this silly little story about undead sharks taking over the highway of a tiny east coast town has gone on to become a Wattpad Paid Story! It's been quite a journey, and this book has become near and dear to my heart. So it should be no surprise that I just couldn't get enough of creating new zombified monsters -- if you haven't visited me on on Wattpad recently, I've been there typing out a bunch more creature chaos - first sharks, then saber tooth tigers, and lastly, unicorns. Come check out the Monster Mayhem series today, and get caught up before the fourth and final book starts wriggling your way this fall!


CHOMP CHOMP!

About Me

I write books for middle grade and young adult. I read them too. I used to draw a bit. When I was nine, I drew comics about a bird family who had a fuzzy orange caterpillar for a dog. They never ate him. After that, I gave a lot of embarrassing performances in my high school's musicals. I believe I stomped my foot when I messed up a line once. So I gave up on acting and decided to stick to telling stories. I packed up and left for the UK where I did my Master's in children's writing at the University of Winchester. Now I'm back in Toronto, reading and writing. I have one noisy beagle and one lab who doesn't stop eating. My first favourite book was Into the Land of Unicorns by Bruce Coville. I have since added a lot more favourites to my collection. They take up most of the living room.
