Talking with Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter

by C.A. Verstraete

Check out a pre publication review.

The Bangor Daily News ran a fun, five-question feature recently with their most famous resident, Stephen King. I liked the questions and thought I’d adapt them and let my fictional Lizzie from my book, Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter, answer them…

  1. What are you doing now?

Reading. I found a rather unusual book of poetry recently published called The shadow of death: poems, songs, and sonnets written by Eric Stenbock. Given recent turns of events, it fit my mood rather well.

  1. What keeps you awake at night?

Not what you think.

  1. Are you a glass half empty or half full person?

I would say half full. I’ve learned there are things you can’t control in your life, so it’s best to look forward.

  1. What is it about Fall River that keeps you here?

I was born here and prefer to die here. No matter what others think of me, this is my home and always will be.

  1. If you could have a five-minute conversation with anyone living or dead, who would it be?

I would ask my father one question: Why?

About Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter by C.A. Verstraete:

Every city has its secrets…

Everyone thinks Lizzie Borden murdered her father and stepmother one hot August morning in 1892 for the oldest of reasons—greed, social status, frustration… But what if she did it because she had to?

Discovering Mr. and Mrs. Borden have become zombies thrusts Lizzie into a horrific world where the walking dead are part of a shocking conspiracy to infect not only Fall River, Massachusetts, but also the world beyond. Now Lizzie enters the fight, vowing to do everything she can to protect her sister, Emma, and her hometown, from this horrid scourge.

But who really killed the Bordens—and why? Lizzie and Emma try to unravel the mystery, even as Lizzie faces the gallows for murder and another fear: what role did her father have in these horrors?

Nowhere in nineteenth-century Fall River is safe from these nightmarish ghouls or the evil forces controlling them.

Yet, for Lizzie, uncovering her city’s—and family’s—secrets may come at a terrible price…
