Zombie Sockologist Jasper Price spends most of his time away from battling zombie socks in his art studio, sketching, writing, painting or making props for parties. He studied commercial arts at the University of North Alabama and Jacksonville State University and worked as an illustrator and graphic artist in the newspaper industry before realizing making up stories is a more exciting way to spend your day. Price lives in Shreveport with his family.

Something rotten is going on right under the nose of Suzie Small. Zombie socks are taking over the Small house, and that just stinks. The only way Suzie can put an end to these toe-biters and stop the Zombie Asockalypse is to enlist the help of her little brother Zac in finding the culprit responsible. Is it the Sock Monster in the dryer, maker of mismatched pairs, sending these socks to their zombified fate? Or what about the Bogeyman hiding under Zac’s bed? Can the Smalls sniff out the clues before it’s too late? Follow your nose … and Suzie and Zac as they use their brains to save the world from an odorous end.
