"Descriptive wealth, dynamic plot, and zany characters. If Ed Payne’s writing had a flavor, it would definitely be my favorite, chocolate, and not the high-milk content kind" Black Petals Magazine, 2016
"It is scary, gory, thrilling and funny all rolled into one. Ed has a very good and unique way of describing everyday objects and thoughts....such an imagination!!" Amazon Reviewer, 2016
With this, his second publication, Edward Payne takes us on one heart stopping journey through flying tent pegs, teenage tantrums and toe curling terror as a group of innocent Girl Guides on their way to an adventure weekend in the woods, are suddenly forced to face their ultimate fear: a night in the centre of a horrifying, blood splattered zombie apocalypse.
Eleven year old Julia Burbidge is in a terrible quandary. She's eager to grow up, but she can't seem to let her old life go. And so she embarks upon one last camping trip with her fellow Girl Guides to the Woodchuck Falls Adventure Camp. But when a nasty bite is revealed en route at the motorway services, Julia realises that this will not be just any old weekend collecting merit badges. Armed with a lone rucksack and only her arch nemesis as a sole alliance, will Julia have the stamina to eliminate the infected by sunrise or will she find herself on the evening menu?
Laugh out loud hilarious and daubed with a healthy dose of guts and gore, Hell Wears A Neckerchief will have you quaking in your woggle and laughing into your mint cake. Not for the faint of heart.
