An Author Interviews a Book Blogger…

Last week my friend, Diana Murdock sent me an email asking if she could interview me…the book blogger me.  It sounded like an interesting idea… and I thought…Well Tamie…it seems like a fair enough proposal to see what its like on the hot seat, so I agreed.

Thanks Diana!

 “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield.
