“Gotta take care of your own, boy.” Those words from his Pa didn't dampen the sting of having to put down his rabid dog. A loyal friend that was suffering from a disease that turned him into an unrecognizable monster.
Jessie had no idea that there would be a lot of "taking care" in the next few months.
When neighbors show up on the farm dazed and bloody, Jessie and his Pa do their best to help their friends, but soon find that there is no way to help those that are already dead.
Jessie must make the transition from boy to man in an instant as the dead rise and try to take over the farm that was to be passed from father to son when the time was right.
As Jessie and his Pa make their way through this new and frightening reality, one phrase rings as true as ever.
"...life goes on, remember that.”

Purchase "Flesh & Blood" on:
Jerry pens "Flesh & Blood" in a fast paced, well written plot filled with emotion, adventure and zombies. A story of a boy, Jessie, who has to grow up fast and make decisions that no boy should ever have to make. His characters were well developed, believable and realistic. Make no mistake, this is not your usual zombie story, it's so much more than that and one that grips you from the start. I totally enjoyed this short story and highly recommend it to all horror zombie fans.
I give "Flesh & Blood" a 5 star rating.
