Floriana is a seemingly ordinary art student, until an exciting opportunity to study ancient Greek relics introduces her to long-held secrets and shockingly dangerous truths.
Her life becomes altogether extraordinary when a seemingly benign morning excursion transforms into an agonizing race across Europe to save humanity. Soon, she must work against the clock to recreate an antidote to save mankind before nostalgic Nazi militias make good on their plan to create a legion of superhuman zombie-soldiers that will wreak havoc on mankind.
As the heir apparent to a family of masterminds, Floriana is the only one capable of thwarting their efforts, but first she’ll come face-to-face with black roses, presumptive killers, and mysterious sects.
With the fate of the world in her hands, can an inexperienced and clumsy art student create an antidote before it’s too late?
Find out in this adrenaline rushing, young adult thrill ride, chock full of espionage, conspiracy theories, spies, and zombies!
When did you start writing, and was there a specific event or person who influenced
you to become an author?
I knew that I wanted to be a writer since I was a child. I don’t think it was really my choice; it’s in my genes. My maternal grandfather was an amateur playwright, and he used to write skits for a local theatre group.
How many books do you have out, and do you have a favorite?
“The Undead Must Die, Episodes 1&2’ is my first published book. It’s a New Adult adventure suspense novella with Episode One published in 2015 and Episode Two published in 2016. A few months ago, both Episodes were published as one book. The Undead Must Die is the first installment in The Order of The Black Rose series, but it can also be read as a standalone. It’s fast paced, and the main events of the story take place over the course of a single day. The Withered Rose will be Book Two in the series, and it’ll be published next summer.”
How do you come up with character names?
“I usually draw inspiration for my heroes’ names from the fictional characters of other books, movies and TV series. I can even be inspired by artists’ and celebrities’ names. However, I named Floriana, the female protagonist of The Undead Must Die, after a district of Valletta, the capital city of Malta. Floriana was born in Valletta, but she wasn’t aware of this fact, no one ever told her. There are a lot of family secrets she needs to find out.”
Do you have a favorite author?
“I have plenty of them in a variety of literary genres. The Brontë sisters, Jules Verne, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Daphne du Maurier, Patricia Highsmith, Isaac Asimov, Edgar Allan Poe, Arthur C. Clarke, Arthur Conan Doyle, George R. R. Martin, and Stephen King, to mention a few.”
Do you have any pets?
“I have two half-breed rescue dogs. One male white Labrador called Terry, and a female black Pitbull called Lara.”
