About the Author
Elodie

In real life, she goes by the name Courtney Gorter. This is a closely guarded secret, and you're the only one who knows about it, so be cool. She's a writer, a bad influence, and a connoisseur of fine chicken nuggets. She realizes none of these things will help her survive a zombie apocalypse, and she’s made her peace with that. You can follow her on tumblr or Twitter if you want, but it's just going to be a lot of complaining.
