A Gothic mansion surrounded by a barbed-wire topped black metal fence is not your typical scene of teenage angst. But when you’re talking about Normal High School, you might as well throw typical out the window. Something strange is happening to the students of this very strange school and newcomer Tessa Wallace has made it her mission to find out what that something is.
When Tessa moved with her mom and sister to the sleepy little town of Normal,she had no idea how abnormal her life would become. That is until her older sister Trina began to change after starting at the local high school. Tessa’s not buying that it’s just a rebellious phase; not after she sees hundreds of high-schoolers acting the exact same way. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more dangerous things will become for everyone involved. Will she be able to find the answers in time, or will her sister become yet another victim of the high school’s nefarious history?

Although it says zombie in the title, my book is not your typical zombie read. It is full of mystery and fun and just a hint of romance. It will definitely leave you wondering what’s going to happen next.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t give up. Even when it seems like you will never finish, even when you feel like you can’t do it and it was a mistake to even try, press on. Keep going through the toughest times and I guarantee that you will finish and your book will be everything that you wanted it to be and more. The feeling of exhilaration when someone reads your finished work and loves it is something that cannot be described!
Courtney Ballard was born and raised alongside her three sisters, mother, and father in Southeast Louisiana. She currently lives near her hometown of Ponchatoula, LA, with her husband of ten years, her eight year old son, and a very spoiled giant puppy named Skips. Courtney has loved to read and write poetry and fiction since she was a small child and has always wanted to inspire the same love of the written word in other young people around the world. It is her dream to write books that will bring laughter, tears, and thrills to readers’ hearts and inspire a new generation of readers to dream again.
I have always had a passionate love of reading since I was a very young child, but the one thing that always bothered me was the lack of interest my peers always showed towards books. So for a very long time, I have wanted to write a book of my own, one that could engage the reader, make them feel like a part of the world inside the book, and give them a deep connection with its characters. I truly believe that my book has what it takes to accomplish that lifelong dream: to inspire a passion for reading in young people.
