About the Book:
Scientists are the new rock stars. The infection has been contained for nearly three months, and the world is celebrating. But humans are still dying. Rebekah Taylor has seen it firsthand. Her husband was killed right in front of her by the very creatures that humans were told they no longer had to fear.
Rebekah is determined to find out who is responsible for the death of her husband and the obvious cover-up. Fueled with revenge, she begins to find answers that lead to one frightening conclusion. The apocalypse might be over, but the battles are just beginning.
Thank you so much for having me! I’m so excited to be here and to be able to talk a little bit about zombies. I’m always amazed at how people say the zombie craze is going away and then another hit show or blockbuster movie comes out to disprove that point!
I think part of our obsession with zombies is because so many of us know deep down that a scary outbreak of some sort has happened in the past and can happen again. These creatures kind of embody that fear and take it one step beyond. The idea of being able to survive, overcome, and rebuild is at the root of most of these stories, and I think that notion is at the heart of most real life stories—surviving and/or overcoming obstacles, no matter how mundane.
On that depressing note, I thought it would be fun to provide a few of my favorite zombie movies (in no particular order):
Shaun of the Dead
World War Z
Night of the Living Dead
