Tell us a bit about your family.
I have the coolest family! My husband’s a big geek, currently on a Lego kick, and our house is full of Legos and books and comic books and action figures. I have a five-year-old daughter (though if you’re reading this after May 12, 2014, she’ll be six…and feel free to send her presents!) who’s equally nerdy. She’ll high five you for making a Back to the Future reference, and though Harry Potter scares her a bit, she can’t wait until she’s old enough to watch beyond the Chamber of Secrets. We also have two insane cats and right now one dog, though we may be getting a puppy soon! Because who doesn’t love a puppy!
How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
I just keep working. That’s really it. I have so many doubts and fears – my stuff isn’t good enough and never will be, I’m totally faking it and they can see right through me – but if I let that get me down, I’d never get anywhere.
What scares you the most?
Losing my family. Also clowns, ticks, and spiders. shudders
What makes you happiest?
Talking shop with other writers; listening to my daughter laugh; making my husband smile; a long run on a warm day; red wine; chocolate; that moment when a plot point comes brilliantly clear and you know exactly how to finish a story.
What’s your greatest character strength?
What’s your weakest character trait?
Stubbornness. Also, I get really grouchy when I’m hungry.
Why do you write?
Why? Because if I didn’t the voices in my head would beat me up.
Millions died when the zombie plague swept the country. For the survivors, the journey has just begun. Jenna, Sam, and Lola are still alive. Jenna avoids human contact, traveling East Coast backroads with her boyfriend, a dog named Chicken, and a Louisville Slugger. Sam escapes to the mountains, where he's conscripted into a zombie-slaying militia sent on nightly raids to kill the undead...and innocent civilians. Lola's imprisoned in the "safety" of a zombie-free New Orleans hotel, but life grows more dangerous when her brother gets bitten by a zombie. Jenna arrives in the French Quarter, lured by the false promises of New Orleans' drunken leader. There, she's ripped away from her boyfriend, drugged, and dumped in a death camp after refusing Franklin's sexual advances. Jenna and Lola's lives collide there, where the dead live and the dying are victims of gruesome medical experiments. Escape isn't easy: release the genetically-enhanced zombies from the lab to create a diversion, slip away, and don't get eaten. When Sam arrives, will he join the right side of the battle?
