Interview with Emma Shortt, Author of Waking Up Dead and Giveaway

Please welcome Emma Shortt to the virtual offices this morning! She dropped by to chat about her zombie romance Waking Up Dead.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Emma Shortt] Right now I’m typing away in an oversize Firefly tee shirt, and my huge spectacles. At some point today I might actually get dressed *lies*.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Waking Up Dead?

[Emma Shortt] Waking up Dead is a book that explores the following question: where there is horror can there be love? The horror comes from the zombies, and the love blossoms between my heroine (Jackson) and my hero (Luke).

I’m a huge horror fan and I devour romance, so in my mind it made sense to combine the two. Plus, it was a book that I wanted to read, if that makes sense, and I looked for it everywhere but couldn’t find it, so I wrote it instead.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Emma Shortt] It just came to me. All my books arrive in my mind pretty much fully formed. I don’t plan them or anything. With Waking up Dead I knew immediately that it would have to be zombies. I have a very weird relationship with zombies. I both loathe and love them.

Once the zombies were there Jackson arrived, then Luke, then all my other characters, and before I knew it I was typing away.

The thing about this story is that it came out exactly how I imagined it to be. Not all my books do, sometimes I feel the final product does not match the story I had envisioned and I can’t work out why. But with WD? As soon as it was finished it felt right.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Jackson?

[Emma Shortt] Impulsive. Steely. Kooky.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Luke had a theme song, what would it be?
