J W Bouchard is a horror, science fiction and children's fantasy author best known for his novellas "Rabid" and "Last Summer."

He enjoys caving in South Dakota, and spending time at his comic book store in Cheyenne, Wyoming. J W is currently living in Iowa with his wife, two children and a ring-necked dove that "seems to have discovered the secret to immortality".

'Sam Finch and the Zombie Hybrid' is the story of a frail but exceedingly intelligent boy whose lifelong aspiration has always been to attend the Dashelmore Warrior Training Academy. When Sam turns 15, his wish finally comes true.

The cover of J.W. Bouchard's new book
About to leave home for the first time, little does he know what is in store for him as he finds himself physically outmatched, falling in love with two different girls, and illegally learning to do magic on the side.

Then there's his second-hand sword named Rusty, which seems to possess secret powers despite being far past its prime. But those are the least of Sam's worries after he soon discovers that there is something far more sinister on the horizon which threatens the existence of the entire world.

For more information about the author signing or to reserve your copy, please call The Book Vine at 225-2445. If you are interested in learning more about J W Bouchard and his other novellas, check out www.jwbouchard.com.
