I understand vampires, but I just can’t figure out the zombie craze. Not that I am a huge vampire fan, although I did enjoy Brandon Hale’s Day Soldier Series—which is not really a genre I typically read.
We spent last week with our daughter and her family in the Sacramento California area. Our daughter was thrilled when the season premier of Walking Dead came on. I started watching it. After all, the grandkids were tucked in for the night and it was the only show playing on the living room TV.
When the cannibals started slitting throats I left the room and retreated upstairs with my laptop. My husband was braver than me and watched the entire episode with our daughter and son-in-law, although it left him shaking his head, wondering why there is such fevered fascination with dystopian horror films, specifically: zombies.
I may write a vampire book someday, but for now I’ll stick to ghost stories. Book 2 of Haunting Danielle will be out in a few weeks, and I am working on Book 3—which is slated for a January 1 release. But there are no zombie stories in my future.
As for those ghost stories—here’s a sneak preview of the first three covers of the series—designed by that Walking Dead loving, cover artist—our daughter Elizabeth Mackey.
