About the author:
Lisa Scullard has been writing since it was possible to make marks with a pen, although not always on the page itself, and more recently since it was possible to balance both a keyboard on one knee and cup of tea in the other hand.
Her first novel-length work was written at the age of only 18 followed by experiments in writing screenplays, articles and also reviews, before returning to novel-writing, attempting literary fiction for adults but finding it impossible to keep the humour at bay.
Writing parodies seemed like a way to pass the time for fun while waiting for the spark of literary genius to emerge and be recognised, and having done so, is wondering if she will be willing or able to stop writing them when it does.
The Terrible Zombie Of Oz
Mr. L Frank Baum
Based on "The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz" by L. Frank Baum, the first in The Zombie Chronicles Of Oz "The Terrible Zombie Of Oz" is a spoof, parody or 'mash-up' of the original first novel.
Leading into a new series inspired by Mr. Baum, the first book invites the reader to see the original Land of Oz in a new light, in which Dorothy is carried by a great Cyclops to the Land of the Feast where the Munchbrains live, accidentally killing the Wicked Witch who has kept them in bondage for so long. And makes new friends as she tries to find a way back home, including a Cowardly Lion with a bell on, a Tin Woodman and his enchanted axe, and a Scarecrow obsessed with braiiiins...
But never fear. This is not your traditional 'zombie tale' full only of bone-crunching, neck-nibbling sideshows for the sake of creative special effects using jelly and old ladies' pantyhose. (Plenty of room for those in the sequel). "The Terrible Zombie Of Oz" is a more cerebral mystery to be unravelled, wherein the sentiment of Mr. Baum is preserved, along with all of the, er, violence that was included in the original.
