Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed.  From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined?  Please.  But that's all it took.  One heartbeat.  A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right.  The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead.  To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland.  But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

Book trailer.

I hope to have a link to this any day!





MAUREEN: What’s your favorite holiday?
GENA:  Christmas.  I’m a huge fan of snow, the food, and I adore watching people smile when they open their presents.

MAUREEN: Where do you most like to read and how often?
GENA:  In bed, snuggled under the covers, at least once a day.

MAUREEN: Cats or dogs?
GENA:   Dogs. I have three.  Two English bulldogs and one very fierce German Shepherd.

MAUREEN: Hiking boots or high heels?
GENA:  Hiking boots.

MAUREEN:  What turns you off like nothing else?
GENA:   Lies.

MAUREEN: What sound or noise do you love?
GENA:  Waterfall.  Fans.  But most of all hearing my family say, “I love you.”

MAUREEN: What book would you want with you if you were stranded on a desert island?
GENA:  The Bible.

MAUREEN: What do you like on your burger? (and do you take your burger veggie or beefy?)

This might sound weird, but mashed potatoes, cheese and grilled onions.  It’s a shepherd’s pie burger.  And it’s all beef, baby.

MAUREEN:  Salsa or guacamole?
GENA:  Guacamole

MAUREEN: Tea or Coffee? And how do you take it?
GENA:  Chamomile tea with honey (the former coffee addict in me is sobbing right now)

MAUREEN:  What does it mean to love someone?
GENA:  Being willing to die for someone else.


MAUREEN:  If you were stranded on a desert island with a hero from one of your books, which one would you like it to be?
GENA:   I’d have to say Cole Holland from Alice in Zombieland.  Not just because I have a huge cougar crush on him—which I do—but also because he’s fiercely loyal to his friends, would die for those he loves, and has a sarcastic sense of humor I find oh, so irresistible.
