About this title


Theodora Zed dresses the part of the gothic author wearing heavy make-up and tight leather skirts, then heads home to her life as Mary Kate Flaherty, suburban wife and mother. At a horror convention, Mary Kate is implicated in a murder. Mary Kate has to find the murderer before another victim is claimed, but when life and horror mix, can she be sure to sort out what's real and what isn't?

From Booklist:

The heroine of Ferrenz's debut novel is mild-mannered mom Mary Kate Flaherty by day and leather-clad Goth writer Theodora Zed by night. Mary Kate lives in the suburbs of Baltimore but travels across the country for book signings and conventions. When a man who criticized Mary Kate's vampire novels at a Cleveland convention is found dead with puncture holes in his neck, she is a perfect suspect. But as more bodies turn up, it becomes clear that a serial "Vampire Killer" is on the loose. As she searches for the killer, Mary Kate must deal with her crumbling marriage, unhappy boys, and a male friend who wants to be more. A bumbling heroine who lacks grace and often embarrasses herself, Mary Kate is likable largely because of her very human flaws. Ferrenz's descriptions of horror conventions are rich in vivid detail and will enthrall fans of the genre. Jenny McLarin
