I absolutely adored Night of the Zombie Chickens and am looking forward to reading Bride of Slug Man. These books would be great gifts for the teen/pre-teen readers in your life!
I am so happy to interview young adult novelist Silvia Acevedo. Her debut novel, God Awful Loser, officially launches on May 1. I am fortunate to be in a critique group with Silvia where she has offered wonderful advice on my own manuscripts for many years now.
