Waking Up Dead is a novel about an ordinary man who wakes up one day to find that he has become a vampire.

So does he sulk? Does he brood? Does he stand around looking all wistful, pouting and glittering? No!

He goes off and eats a few ducks, then walks home to share his news with his wife and son.

Unfortunately for him, most people find it a little disconcerting when their dead husband turns up on their doorstep so things don’t go quite as smoothly as he hopes.

A story of a vampire confronting his demons in his effort to hold down a job and keep his family together, while being pursued by a bunch of doctors who saw him wake up during his autopsy. And then there is the small matter of the extra powers that he begins to manifest, and the horde of shark faced bird creatures that want to eat him for lunch...
