About the Book

Dave Marwood is trapped in a soul crushing dead end job. He’s in love with his work colleague Melanie and his only friend Gary is a conspiracy theory nut.

His life is going nowhere until he has a Near Death Experience - though Death thinks of it as a Near Dave Experience. He discovers gifts he never knew he possessed and a world he never dreamed existed. A world where the Grim Reaper is a hard drinking, grumpy Billy Joel fan and the undead are bored, lonely and dangerous.

How To Be Dead is the first part in a three novella funny urban fantasy series that tells the story of Death and his office staff protecting humanity from ghosts, zombies, vampires and medium-sized apocalypses.

After a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.

“Dave Turner is a funny man and ‘How To Be Dead’ is a brilliant read.”

“If Neil Gaiman and Simon Pegg sat down to write a story together they might come up with something like this.”

“Hilarious and unexpectedly moving.”

“Laugh out loud funny… It’s been a while since an author has made me laugh more than Pratchett does.”
