So it is no secret that I LOVE zombies. I even have a sticker on the back of my minivan that says, I LOVE ZOMBIES (oh, yeah) and a set of family stickers that portrays my entire family, including the dog, as zombies that says, WE ATE YOUR STICK FAMILY (for those of you who don't live in Utah, putting vinyl family stickers on your car is a big thing. I hate it. So dumb. But the zombie stickers called to me).
Anyway, I've seen these zombie shoes online for like forever and would LOVE to own a pair. So cool, but I could never wrap my mind around the idea of where in the world would I ever get a chance to wear them. Church? School? Grocery shopping? Well, the other day I had to travel into SLC to the state PTA office (Parent, Teacher, Association, because guess what crazy lady decided to say yes to being PTA president at her kids school this year? Yeah, me).
I went in to pick up supplies and this cute little receptionist girl stood up to go get my things and low and behold--ZOMBIE HIGH HEELS. These very ones. So cool.
So of course I had to comment, "I love your high heels. I so want a pair." Then I told her about how I love zombies and how I've written a zombie western series. And guess what? She's a writer of zombie stories as well. Her name is Candace Gleave (click on her name to check her out) and she has several zombie short stories out there. Who would've guessed that it be PTA moms and receptionists IN UTAH no less, writing about zombies? We Utah PTA women are a crazy bunch :)
I totally should've worn my zombie necklace (I totally own this) to the WALK YOUR KIDS TO SCHOOL MORNING PTA BREAKFAST this morning. Don't you think? Now, I'm off to get me a pair of zombie shoes. A must have for any good Utah Mom PTA zombie writer.

Isn't writing about zombies AWESOME! It's totally fun. Let me know when your story is done so I can check it out.

I so love these shoes, Angela. Could you tell me where I could check them out? Though I doubt they have them in my size. The price of having an eight-year-old sized foot. :/

Please, authors, write more middle school zombie fiction! My 6-8 graders cannot get enough! I am scrambling to find more like Rot & Ruin, The Enemy, and Infinity!

WANTED is YA, but I've had several teens of Jr high age read it and love it. Mom approved.

HA!! I absolutely love this post!!!! I laughed out loud numerous times :) Love the heels, and the necklace, and please please please, if you wear them to a PTA meeting...take pictures?!?!?!?! (hee hee) My favorite part is that you have the sticker of your family that says "We ate your stick family"!!!!! Ahhh, that kills me. Folks love those stick-family stickers here down south too...along with their monograms in girly fonts and, of course, the obligatory flip-flops sticker. Sigh.

Glad you got some laughs! I actually came out of Target and saw a woman snapping a picture of my zombie family stickers. That is the 2nd time I've caught someone doing that. I love it. And if I show up at PTA with my zombie garb, I will totally have someone take my pic. I did buy some zombie shoes--not the ones shown but some others that have stitching and are back and grey so I can wear them to more places--like church :) That should be fun.
