About the Book

The year is 1,000 AD, somewhere in Eastern Europe...

Rumors about disturbing sightings in a remote village spread, although the Church tries to keep everything a secret.

Is it just the ramblings of ignorant peasants, the work of the devil, or something completely different? An inquisitive stranger tries to solve the mystery in a discrete manner.

What he discovers nestled deep in the snow-covered mountains confirms his worst fears, and will lead to a gory and desperate battle between the living and the living dead. But who breeds this terrible threat?

Will a unit of elite soldiers manage to stop the spread of this powerful and strange evil?

This gripping short story can be read as a standalone.

How It All Began – The Birth of Folklore is a prequel to Growlers, a post-apocalyptic zombie thriller series set in the present day. The series follows a family as they struggle to stay alive and build a new life after a pandemic turns almost everyone into growling monsters. Would you survive the apocalypse with no guns, electricity, running water or any special skills?
