Tom Robbins is my favorite author. No one writes like him; no one comes up with story lines like him; no one has his unique brand of humor. My favorite book of all time is his Jitterbug Perfume. It’s sheer genius! Check it out HERE.
Kathy: What is your guilty pleasure?
Chick lit romantic vampire comedies. Amazingly, and thankfully, it’s quite a viable genre.
Kathy: Favorite meal?
Any buffet in Vegas!
Kathy: If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
Not be a writer? I gasp at the very thought. Here you go: GASP!
Kathy: If you could time travel, what time period would you visit?
I’d love to have been at Woodstock. I’d imagine the memories of that would stick with you for the rest of your life. Luckily, I live close to Haight Ashbury, so at least I can still get a contact high off of it, so to speak.
Kathy: Can you tell us a little about Creature Comfort?
Creature Comfort is the ultimate love story. Not even death can tear my characters apart, not even time, centuries, in fact. Throw in the fact that everyone is a zombie and a drag queen, and I believe I’ve created a whole new sub-genre. Also, unlike most gay novels, mine also has a straight love story interwoven through the plot. As to said plot, someone is attacking the few remaining living humans on the planet, and only Creature Comfort, (drag) queen of the zombies, can help save the day! In the end, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you too might GASP!
Kathy: What projects are you working on now? Any other projected releases for 2015?
My 9th novel, Fate, is finished and I’m working on the edits right now. Best Gay Erotica 2015, which I’m the editor of, will be released on January 13th. Warlords & Warriors, which I’m also the editor of, will be released sometime this winter. And, as always, I’m continuously writing short stories for various projects. So, yes, busy, busy, busy.

Three hundred years into the apocalypse, centuries-old zombie queen, Creature Comfort, and the love of her afterlife, Dara Licked, leave their salt factory in Utah and find themselves beneath a gussied-up Lady Liberty, surrounded by a race of fabulous drag queens. Humanity (what’s left of it) is in dire trouble, attacked by unseen menacing forces, and only Creature can possibly save the day! Thus starts this hilarious tale of mystery and heart-pounding adventure, of friends old and new, of what it means to be alive and, most importantly, in love.
