Salem Charter Academy
A zombie girl struggles to survive SALEM CHARTER ACADEMY, a school that expects her to be able to cast spells, while her little brother’s butt begins to turn into a werewolf and her mad-scientist father goes missing.
While Patty’s character relationships can be aptly compared to Meg Murry from A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel (Square Fish 2015), this coming-of-age story has a plot perhaps more comparable to Jeffrey Brown’s Jedi Academy series (Scholastic, 2014), addressing timely issues of race and class relations and fitting into a new school.
This graphic novel borrows characters from my picture book, There’s a Zombie in the Basement (Mascot Books, 2016), which has already amassed a fan base of thousands in its successful crowdfunding efforts and subsequent reading tour to 45 schools, bookstores and libraries (and counting), leading to a third printing in early 2019. Besides this, I’ve always had an obsession with monsters and have become well known as a zombie caricature artist locally and on the convention circuit.
Evil Twins of Salem Charter Academy prequel is also in development.
