About the Author

Billy Phillips is a multi-award-winning bestselling author, creative producer and part time lecturer. He has ghost-written thirteen best selling non-fiction books, some of which surpassed a million copies sold.  The award-wining middle-grade/YA novel Once Upon a Zombie is his fiction debut under his own name.  His licensing company, The Toon Studio, owns one of the largest vintage collection of fairy tale books and character art in the world.

Jenny Nissenson is an award-winning writer, producer and entertainer.  She has written for Nickelodeon and lives in Hollywood, California with 1009 puppets and her twenty-five year old pet tortoise.


Billy Phillips was born in Toronto, Canada and moved his wife and four children to Los Angeles in 1994.

He is an award-winning, bestselling author, produce, and lecturer who wanted to address the social anxieties and phobias that afflict young people.

He has been ghostwriting for the last fifteen years, and his books have sold millions of copies.  Once Upon a Zombie is his fiction debut under his own name.

When one of his children suggested he write a zombie book under his own name, Billy conceived the idea of merging the iconic fairy tale characters with the zombie phenomena.

Zombie Cinderella and friends were born!

The book has garnered rave reviews and recognition including being named the Best Pre Teen Book by the National Indie Excellence Awards, the Purple Dragonfly Award for Best Young Adult (YA) Fiction, a double winner at the Beverly Hills International Book Awards for Best Juvenile Fiction and Best Cover Fiction.  The book was just nominated and named a double Finalist and a double Medal Winner at the upcoming FAPA President's Awards Banquet being held at the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando in August 2016.

Billy had the privilege of lecturing at NASA, at the Kennedy Space Center, on the subject of science, physics and spirituality, sharing compelling ideas which he interweaves in his novels.
In his multi-award-winning YA fantasy novel Once Upon a Zombie, Billy envisioned the zombies as a metaphor for all those relentless negative thoughts and paralyzing fears that try to swallow us whole.  The fairy tale characters are metaphor for what middle graders and young adults aspire to be.  And though his breathless fantasy novel plays out in an otherworldly universe, the underlying message in this award-winning YA series is really about that unseen zombie inside all of us!
