About THE TRIP

The Trip by Tim Morgan

This is not your typical zombie apocalypse

The summer after senior year, Meghan, with her friends Dave and Chris, set out on what should be the trip of a lifetime: a bicycle trip from Billerica, Massachusetts to Seattle, Washington. Meghan longs for her independence; Dave secretly has a crush on Meghan; and Chris is reeling from recently being diagnosed HIV positive as the result of a bad decision.

As the three plan their trip, a previously unidentified flu is detected in Mumbai, India. The disease begins a relentless march around the globe. By the time Meghan and her friends are halfway across the country, the horrible truth is known: this is not a normal flu virus. The disease turns its victims into flesh-eating zombies.

Scared and stranded in the middle of America, the three turn back in a desperate bid to make it home.

THE TRIP follows Meghan, Dave and Chris as they dodge zombies, try to stay alive, and make it through the drama of senior year. Unfolding through a series of blog posts, newscasts and traditional narrative, this is a unique spin on the zombie genre.

Zombies! High school drama! THE TRIP!

"...I can’t believe we’ve been talking about this, planning since our junior year (well, *I’ve* been thinking about this since sophomore year), and now here we are going into mid-term and it looks like we’re actually going to do it!!! YEA! Thirty three hundred miles from Billerica, MA to Seattle. On mountain bikes..." Excerpt from Meghan's blog post - The Trip

THE TRIP - TRAILER 2.0 - ANIMATED!

I'm excited to announce the audiobook version of THE TRIP! Featuring the voices of Kimberley Miller, Sophia Cacciola and Felicia Flanagan, the audiobook should be available in March 2016. This trailer includes actual dialog from the audiobook.

Along those lines, I've begun work on an animated feature based on the trip. Featuring character designs by Amanda Poland and Kurt Belcher, this movie should be avalable in December 2017.

Reviews of The Trip

What people are saying about THE TRIP

"Every book lover knows that moment when it's past when you should have gone to sleep, but there's less than 100 pages left and you just need to finish. It takes an engaging and well written story to make that happen, and The Trip is that and more."

"...if you are looking for substance in the often merely one dimensional genre then this is your pick."
