Set in and around London, the events in "The Enemy" series take place in a world where a mystery disease has broken out affecting only grown-ups. Some survive, but those that do face a more terrifying fate - they turn into hideous zombies with an insatiable appetite for human flesh. Children form gangs and attempt to survive in an unrecognisable world where there are dangers around every corner.
The first novel in his bestselling zombie-adventure series for teenagers, The Enemy, was published by Puffin in 2009 and was followed by The Dead (2010) and The Fear (2011). Charlie is a huge fan of horror films and books, and even studied gothic literature at university. With three sons of his own, Charlie knows exactly how to terrify and captivate teenagers in equal measure.
