University. Murder. The Plymouth mob. A typical twenty year old student who fills his days by watching films, avoiding work and trying to achieve level 10 membership in a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles internet forum. He accidentally kills someone and subsequently goes on the run from Plymouth’s organized crime group. Against the backdrop of life at university, the hapless student tackles events beyond his control and adventures which take him up to Dartmoor and back, around a theme park and into the central headquarters of a nationwide terrorist organization. He is pursued at every turn by a Robert Carlisle impersonator and his employer who tours the local fast food establishments with a Zippo lighter and an unhealthy knowledge of how to cause a man pain. With no clue what to do and no time to do it within, the bungling student must find a way to escape his predicament and return to the peace and serenity of his unremarkable existence. Almost Dead is a light hearted, dark humored thrill...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Anna O'Hare

I'm 25 years old, currently teaching English as a foreign language in Thailand, although I'm going back to England shortly to prepare for my teaching career, which starts in September. Before I was a TEFL teacher, I worked at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and before that, I did various odds and ends jobs in kitchens and libraries. I've got three brothers, two parents and one dog. And a cat. I like to go running and compete all over in various amateur races. I've always written stuff but it's only recently that I really felt the urge to get published, so all my writing isn't just sitting, untouched in a drawer somewhere. I write because what I really want to be is a superhero or adventurer or explorer but you can't have those careers in this day and age, so I pour all my energy and interest into creating adventures on the page. That and I also find it's a good substitute for just talking about myself and what I'm thinking, much like this paragraph.
