Speak of the Devil Blog Tour – An Excerpt from the book…

Speak of the Devil

Zombies don’t move very quickly, so I was late for language arts class.

“Miss Tyler, a word,” Mr. Herb Potter said as I staggered in. Maybe he thought I was drunk.

He pulled me out into the empty hall and closed the door.

“Do you want to explain why you’re late and why you are in this state?” My teacher looked me up and down.

How could I explain I was a zombie? “Overslept and ran late today. Sorry about that.”

“Why?”

Hmmm, I didn’t know where to start. Every explanation I had seemed to begin at my death, at the accident because everything that had happened since seemed to be a result of it especially this funk I was in.

“I worked all weekend and stayed up late last night.” The lies were beginning to flow fairly easily now. Not only did I now get why my peers turned to alcohol and drugs, I also got why they lied. It was so much easier than the truth.
