When Aquila Robinson and her friend Naomi find a magical ring at the bottom of a stony creek, strange things begin to happen. The sound of shuffling feet emerges from the woods, followed closely by a low moaning, "brraaaiiinnsss", that sends the girls running and begins an adventure that could only come from the mind of a seven-year-old author.
Septic Zombie is the first story written by home-schooled seven year old Aquila Robinson (the real Aquila). With the help of her father (best-selling author Jeremy Robinson), Aquila has written and released this book, which she dictated to her father. Every word is hers, though she did work with an editor (mostly to fix Dad's typos). She even contacted the authors below and asked them to read the book - these are real endorsements!
About the author: Aquila Robinson is a seven-year-old homeschooler with aspirations of being an author like her father, Jeremy Robinson. She also aspires to owning her own restaurant, something she and her friends experienced by turning the house into a restaurant complete with waitresses, chefs, hostesses, and real paying customers. Septic Zombie, like the restaurant, is an extension of her creative, child-led homeschooling.

"Zombies, magic rings, UFOs, and aliens.... Aquila Robinson's story Septic Zombie is something I would have written, if I'd been as brave as a seven-year-old girl. A story for the ages... for all the ages!" (James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of The Devil Colony)
"I LOVE this! Aquila is a fierce talent with a wildly inventive mind. She is going to push her father and me out of the book business one of these days." (Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of Assassin's Code and Dust & Decay)
"Aquila Robinson has a soaring imagination and sense of wonder-just like her dad. She also has a wickedly sharp sense of humor. Septic Zombie is a whole lot of fun. Keep an eye on this young author." (Kane Gilmour, Author of Resurrect and Callsign: Deep Blue)
The 7 year old mind that created it! Such talent and such fun!!
Hope this contributes to getting that puppy!!!
A brilliant short story that perfectly captures that endearing wonderment of childhood. It's wildly entertaining with solid story progression, memorable and distinctive characters, and a happy ending. The descriptions are detailed and provide solid references to firmly established points in pop culture. Robinson demonstrates a grasp of vocabulary and dialogue far past most children her age, and it is truly a joy to read her work.R.C Bray provides a dynamic and engaging performance, very true to the tone of the story. The sound effects are also very well voiced.
This short story is perfect for kids and adults alike. I actually laughed out loud at parts. The illustrations go really well with the story and I think kids will get a huge kick out of them. I look forward to introducing my nephews to this book, which is the biggest complement I can give, I think they will love it.
R.C.Bray was a surprising choice for this story but after listening to it, he was a perfect choice. Rock-Star Zombie has to be my favourite.
I'm an avid audible book listener. I am a huge fan of supernatural books and like stuff that is scary but well written. I live in Denver Co
Where to begin- Zombie stories are my favorite. So needless to say, I've read many. While even though some zombie stories are predictable, I still thoroughly enjoy them. Now Septic Zombie is completely original! A ballerina zombie? How original! Rock star zombie? Brilliant! This young lady ( she's SEVEN ?!?!!!) has talent and she will be on MY watch list.
Anyone care to start a fan club :)
