About the Book

Fred is one of those rare boys that actually likes going to school… well, he did until now. He started getting picked on for something he has no control over… being a zombie. Most people think of zombies as mindless creatures that roam the world searching for others to infect, in fact that couldn’t be further from the truth. All Fred wants to do is bake! He dreams of opening his very own cake shop one day, but pastry school is extremely expensive! Then an opportunity comes along that could help his dreams become reality.

Chapter One

Fred was more excited than he had ever been before. Today he was going to open his very own cake shop, something he had been dreaming about for years.

He got up early, laid a selection of beautiful cakes and pastries out, unlocked the door, and turned his sign over to show he was open for business.

It took a little longer for the first customer to come in than he had hoped, and much to his surprise, they ran out after only trying one cake sample. Not two minutes later the same person came back dragging two people with her. “Maisy, you have to try this,” she said, pushing her friend forwards.

Soon, more and more people turned up until there was no space left in the shop and they had to wait patiently outside for their turn.

Fred saw lots of people he knew and lots more that he didn’t, and was kept busy refilling the counters with all kinds of tasty treats for people to try and buy.

It was the middle of the afternoon when a reporter turned up and asked Fred if he could take some photographs for the local paper.

“Can we do a quick interview as well? The people will love to know your story.”

Fred laughed. “There is not much to know,” he said. “I have been very lucky, but none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been a zombie.”

Fred led the reporter to the side of the shop so they could both sit down.

The reporter set his camera on the table and took out a pen and a small writing pad.

“What do you mean?”

Fred’s eyes glazed as memories of his childhood began to surface.

Chapter Two

Most people think of zombies as mindless creatures that roam the world searching for others to infect. In fact, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

It was three o’clock in the morning and Fred lay in bed with his eyes wide open, staring with desperation at the ceiling. He was hoping that something miraculous would happen to stop him from having to go to school that day.

It wasn’t that he didn’t like school; he did, and up until the day before he had enjoyed learning during lessons and laughing with friends during break times. His favourite class was cookery and his dream was to open his very own cake shop. He knew it would take a lot of work because his family were quite poor but he was determined to try, so he worked hard at his lessons. The problem was that school wasn’t as much fun as it used to be because now he was being picked on, picked on for something he had no control over, picked on for being a zombie.

Where were you born, and what was it like growing up there?

I was born in Dragon Land and it wasn't much fun growing up as all the other dragons didn't really want to play with me.

Who is your enemy?

Not really enemies, but pretty much all the other dragons don't like me very much and the fire dragons can be mean.

Who do you most admire in your world?

The beautiful nature and surrounding. The colors are wondrous.

Tell us a little about your world, and where you fit in?

My world is made up of colorful landscape - caves, forests, lagoons and sandy beaches. There are fours kinds of Dragon that live in my world: Water Dragons, Air Dragons, Fire Dragons and me the Earth Dragon. I am the only Earth Dragon and so I don't fit in well with the others who are all brightly colored and have special skills.

What was the most embarrassing moment in your life?

When I tried gargling with fire water so I could make a flame like the fire dragons. It didn't work and I ended up with a sore throat.

What is the most important lesson you've learned about life?

The even a small brown dragon can sometimes do big things.

What is the strangest situation you've ever found yourself in?

When the Giant came stomping through our world all the dragons were scared of him and hid in my cave.

What is the greatest obstacle you have ever had to face?

The other dragons. I hope someday they'll accept me.

Where is the best place to visit in your world?

My world is beautiful. You should visit everywhere! Be sure to stop by the Lagoon and watch the Water Dragons playing Marco Polo.

Do you have any hobbies?

I love to dig. I've found all different cool rocks in the earth and I keep them in the corner of my cave.

If you could meet someone from another novel, who would it be?

Miro - from Miro the Dragon by Theresa Berg - he seems really nice.

Do you have a secret you've never told anyone?

I don't know how to swim, so couldn't really play with the Water Dragons even if they wanted me too.

What is your favorite food?

There are these delicious truffles that I sometimes find when I dig in certain spots. Yummy!

What do you own that would be hardest to part with?

I have one particular rock that I found a few years ago with a silver strand running through it. When I hold it, it makes me feel happy. I would hate to lose it.

What was the most exciting adventure you've ever been on?

You're going to have to read my book to find that one out!

Ms. Creant: The Wrong Doers! - A #SelfHelp Book by E. A. Barker

E. A. Barker believes he is an average guy in mid-life who has led a mostly average life. His readers may not agree with his assessment. The single biggest difference between him and most other people is his pursuit of knowledge. Throughout his life he never stopped asking the simplest question: Why? E. A. describes himself as a collector of ideas and a purveyor of dot connections. He attempts to present his findings in an entertaining fashion in an effort to encourage people to read—especially men who are reading far too little these days. E. A is an advocate of education for its ability to affect social reform and actively promotes the idea that a global conscience is possible.

About the Book

Ms. Creant: The Wrong Doers!
Life With Women: The Long-Awaited Instruction Manual

This book was created for everyone from young adults to seniors. It was written from a male’s point of view, speaking to men who are endlessly struggling to understand the opposite sex. For women, this is a fascinating journey inside the male psyche. The book gives a young reader a glimpse of the future, with a recommended timeline for key life events. Mature readers, who have already experienced much of what is discussed in the book, should come away with a newfound understanding and perhaps even closure. Ms. Creant is a controversial, entertaining, yet informative look at everything which influences human behaviour including: relationships, life, health, biology, philosophy, sociology, theology, politics, genetics—even physics. E. A. Barker shares twenty-four “inappropriate” stories of life with women. The author based these stories of women behaving badly on his real-life experiences, spanning four decades of his search for an ideal partner. The lessons taken away from the book will serve to help readers make better choices, become more aware, grow and change—at any stage of life.

Thank you for conquering the planet for us and keeping us safe, but we can take it from here. We will remember you fondly.

There is another way of viewing these observations, which I endorse. On the opposite side, one could argue men are nearly perfect, and have been perfect all along. We do not require as much genetic improvement as our female counterparts. Maybe it is the female of the species which is flawed, and in need of all this upgrading. Anytime you are bored, have this conversation with a woman — you will not be bored for long.

My promotional products in support of the book will have the following sayings, one for each sex:
XX Genetics proves WOMEN are evolving 50% faster than MEN!
XY Genetics proves MEN need 50% fewer genetic upgrades than WOMEN!

To produce a proven scientific fact, it requires completed experiments, which produce an irrefutable result. When it comes to men and women interacting, we are still in the observation stage, so my findings are at best, a humorous hypothesis.

“THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES” rages on — and we men are losing.

Take some consolation in knowing, both life and women, are more predictable than you think.
