X is for... EXplain whY you like Zombies....
Why Zombies, you ask?
Writing about any kind of monsters and horror is fun. Sure, you say.
Five Reasons to Write (and read) about Zombies:
1. It's a way to face your own fears or "kill" your frustrations.
2. It puts a face on "evil."
3. Scary is fun. Really.
4. It's a different way to put characters in dangerous situations they need to escape from. Oh, and if you don't like a character it's easy to get rid of them. Chomp!
5. I like scary books more than movies. I'd rather see it in my mind with my own images, but putting it in words is rather fun. Surprising how many ways you can think of trying to describe a zombie. They're not all alike, you know...

About the Book:
Life can suck when you're sixteen. It can suck even worse when you're not-quite-dead.
Sixteen-year-old Rebecca Herrera Hayes faces every teenager's biggest nightmares: bad skin, bad hair, and worse . . . turning into one of the living dead.
Becca's life changes forever when her cousin Spence comes back to their small Wisconsin town carrying a deadly secret—he's becoming a zombie, a fate he shares with her through an accidental scratch.
The Z infection, however, has mutated, affecting younger persons like her, or those treated early enough, differently. Now she must cope with weird physical changes and habits no girl wants to be noticed for.
But time is running out... Most of all, she needs to find something, anything, to stop this deadly transformation before it is forever too late...
