Leah Rhyne, author of the Undead America series, lowered her Louisville Slugger and caught her breath long enough to ask me some writerly questions over at her site (apologies if you were expecting reversed roles; I never know how to word these things). We gnawed on such fleshy topics as sadistic plotting, choosing your own adventures, and nonautobiography, among others. Get clicky and sate your appetite for brains. Then be sure to check out her latest e-book, Zombie Days, Campfire Nights. Of course, if you haven’t read my Flashover yet, stop whatever you’re doing and remedy that, for Christ’s sake.
I first crossed paths with Leah in the LitReactor community, where we’re both competing in a bracketed short-fiction contest over the course of several months. Should we happen to meet in the final match, we’ll suspend our friendly façade and the gloves will come off for the duration. It will end in tears—though whose, I cannot yet say.
