A just got my cover for my new book, arriving next month, called The Z Word. It's book one of a series called Apocalypse Babes. Woot!
The Z Word follows Seffy Carter and her longtime friends Gareth, Addison and Lani. The four besties share a past dysfunctional and dark enough to keep them bound together under do-over identities. But rends develop in their relationships from the flesh-eating pressures of ending up in 1980, in a Montana desert, surrounded by zombies wearing dated disco duds.
The Z Word is a mix of light and dark, truth and lies, and life and death.
Check the Apocalypse Babes site on 7/6/2001 for a fun contest celebrating the book's release. Think Juicy Couture, Victoria's Secret and Amazon, and the best word of all, 'free'!

"...it's the lies that we tell ourselves, they introduce us to him."
You can't mention M. Night Shyamalan's name without getting a strong reaction. I'll be honest--I'm a fan. Few directors push the boundaries into spiritual matters like he does. No matter what anyone thinks of his films, there's always a lot of thought, layers, symbolism, and special touches added to his work that always resonates with me.
Devil is no exception. From the first frames we know things will not be what we expect. As we're introduced to the principal players, we know all is not as it seems and masks quickly begin to fall when the lights go out.
But what really spoke to me was the spiritual questions. What is forgiveness? Is there a spiritual realm? Is there a devil, real or imagined?
Even more, is there something even worse than the devil to fear?
Devil is a dark, suspenseful look into the heart of man. What you find there might surprise you.
