Authorial Intrusion - Stacey Jay

I’m delighted to introduce Stacey Jay today on the abbreviated 3-question version of Authorial Intrusion.


Even Zombie Settlers with Super Hot Boyfriends get the Blues...

A few months ago I was a normal girl with a normal life. But that was before my power to Settle the Undead returned and someone tried to kill me with zombies.

Now I work magic and practice kicking butt while trying to find time for pom squad and my boyfriend, Ethan, and trying NOT to think about how freaky my life has become. It can be tough. Still…things could be worse…

Oh yeah, right:
1. Feral new super-strong zombies. Check.
2. Undead psychic hottie predicting a zombie apocolypse. Check.
3. Earth-shattering secrets that could land me in Settler prison for life. Check.
4. Cheerleader vs. pom squad turf war threatening the end of the half time as we know it. Check.

I’m going to need therapy (and a cookie) if I live through the week. Unfortunately I’m learning that’s not something Zombie Queens can take for granted.

Stacey Jay is a workaholic with three pen names, and a sick sense of humor. She loves creepies, crawlies, and of course, romance. What would a zombie novel--or any novel--be without kisses that make your toes tingle?

Stacey has been a full time writer since 2005 and can't think of anything she'd rather be doing. Her former careers include theatre performer, professional dancer, poorly paid C-movie actress, bartender, and waiter.

NEW writing advice in five words or less.
Rereading isn't always bad idea.

What's the last book you read?
I'm reading "Kitty Takes a Holiday" by Carrie Vaughn. Yummy adult werewolf urban fantasy. I'm really enjoying it!

Top 5 songs from your book's playlist, or just what you've been listening to lately.
I've been listening to a lot of blues and gospel-influenced southern stuff to get in the mood for the book I'm writing at the moment.

"These arms of my mine" by Otis Redding, "Bring it on Home to Me" by Sam Cook, "Ode to Billie Joe" by Bobbie Gentry, and some more modern southern/country/gothic stuff by Reverend Glasseye and his Wooden Legs and Wovenhand.

Thanks for swiftly indulging our curiosity, Stacey!
