Angela Verdenius


Angela lives in Australia, where she is happily ruled by her cats. When not reading, at work as a nurse, or watching horror movies, she can usually be found at her trusty computer…procrastinating by cruising the internet looking for funny cat clips and upcoming spooky movies.
Angela has written sci-fi romances, BBW contemporary romances, 2 novellas, and several short stories, one of which is a zombie story she had great fun writing (because zombies rule and are the coolest of the monsters).

Smashwords book reviews by Angela Verdenius

  • Motor City Shambler: A Bob the Zombie Novel on June 20, 2011
    (no rating)
    When I first bought this book, I didn't quite know what to expect. I love zombies (zombies rule, yay!), but have never read one from the POV of the zombie. I loved this story so much, I've just bought the next in the series. It was funny, interesting, and I never quite knew what was going to happen next. One minute I liked Bob, the next I was horrified at something he'd done! Thanks for a great read, Johsua.
  • Unfortunate on Jan. 24, 2012

    Being a huge fan of Chrissy McMullen, and totally devastated when I thought the series had finished, I was stoked to stumble across more of the books here at Smashwords! This is a short read, and has unexpected twists and turns! To really get a feel for the characters, I'd advise reading the other books in the series first, as this short story, while great for old fans like me, won't give you a full appreciation of the'll give you a tantalising taste, though!
  • Uncorked on Jan. 24, 2012

    Chrissy McMullen rides again, and what a crazy ride it is! But can it be anything less, especially when it involves Rivera, his awesomely bad luck, Doctor-What's-His-name, and Chrissy's sleuthing? Loved it!!! Give me more Chrissy McMullen and Lt Rivera!
