Read full description of the books:
Not knowing what to do, I sat on the church steps and waited. As the gravity of my failure began to well up in me, I began to cry. . .I Had Lost The Hearse!
Funerals and the all the things that accompany them are traditionally somber, contemplative events in which the bereaved look to their undertaker to guide them through that most difficult of times.
Of course, sometimes tradition gets thrown under the bus.
From a dysfunctional family who turn their mother's wake into a full-blown riot, to funeral crashers looking for free meals, to a horse-drawn hearse taking the dearly departed for the ride of their afterlife, these accounts from actual undertakers will have you laughing, thinking, and gasping in disbelief. A literal graveyard of wild coincidences, slapstick humor, and touching moments, Over Our Dead Bodies explores the lighter side of the dead, the living, and the lone undertaker who has to make it all go as planned--even if it doesn't.
Praise for Mortuary Confidential

"As unpredictable and lively as a bunch of drunks at a New Orleans funeral." --Joe R. Lansdale
"Sick, funny, and brilliant!I love this book."--Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of "They Bite!" and "Rot & Ruin"
"These true mortuary tales are poignant--and suddenly, gaspingly, in-your-face funny." --"Booklist""

Read information about the authorKenneth McKenzie became interested in becoming a mortician at the age of 12 when his father committed suicide. Working with grieving families came very natural to him, but he was uncomfortable with high funeral costs.
After eight years at a Lakewood, California mortuary, in 1994 he opened McKenzie Cremation & Burial Services in Signal Hill, California and halved the price of funerals. He shares his services by donating three percent of his professional service charge to the families’ charity.
McKenzie gives back to the community by sponsoring annual holiday food drives and summer estate sales that directly benefit people who receive care at local cash-crunched hospices.
