Inside the Mind of the Author
Thank you so much for having me on your blog!
What was I thinking while I wrote DEAD SEXY? To be completely honest, my first thought was what the hell are you doing?!
I knew that writing a romance with a zombie hero was a huge risk. People always say they want something completely different, but I worried they might not want something quite that different. Everyone loves reading about shifters and vampires because they’re used to seeing them as heroes—there's a certain comfort level there. Zombies, not so much. But my zombie hero isn’t like the zombies you normally think of. Well, okay when he turns into one, he isn’t very attractive, I admit, but I promise you that he doesn’t terrorize people or eat them like the zombies on The Walking Dead. In fact, when the curse comes out and you see him in zombie mode, I promise your heart will ache and really go out to him. My zombie hero, Drake, is just that kind of character.
So, could I have written something safe and gone with a werewolf or a vampire? Yes. But Drake’s story is one that just had to be told, and I'm happy that I was the one he picked to tell it.
Can her love save him from a curse worse than death?Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City - in bed and out.But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.The sex is the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself feeling things for Simone he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She's determined he won't have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.
