The end of the world just might be their perfect beginning... Glenview, North Carolina. Also known-at least to sixteen-year-old Ava Pegg-as the Land of Incredibly Boring Vacations. What exactly were her parents thinking when they bought a summer home here? Then the cute-but-really-annoying boy next door shows up at her place in a panic...hollering something about flesh-eating zombies attacking the town. At first, Ava's certain that Cole spent a little too much time with his head in the moonshine barrel.

But when someone-or something-rotted and terrifying emerges from behind the woodpile, Ava realizes this is no hooch hallucination. The undead are walking in Glenview, and they are hungry. Panicked, Ava and Cole flee into the national forest. No supplies, no weapons. Just two teenagers who don't even like each other fighting for their lives. But that's the funny thing about the Zombpocalypse. You never know when you'll meet your undead end. Or when you'll fall dead over heels for a boy...

#1. Where did you get the idea for your book?

DEAD OVER HEELS is the story of a city girl (Ava) who gets stuck in a North Carolina forest during a zombie apocalypse. She's helped by a cute (but annoying, at first) country boy named Cole. When I moved from Florida to NC for college, I went through this big adjustment period where I had to overcome my stereotypes about "hillbillies," and my new NC friends had to adjust their thinking about "Floridiots." :) A lot of that conflict shows up in the novel.

#2. What was the writing process like?
I love to write, but I'm incredibly busy, so there's no time for drama about the process. If I have a spare hour, I get words on the page. No over-thinking allowed. 

#3. Who is your favorite author?

What? Pick just one? That's so hard! Maggie Stiefvater. Or maybe Tolkien. Stephanie Perkins?

#4. What is your favorite thing about the holidays?


#5. Other than writing, what else do you like to do?

I hike a lot. And travel. I'm heading to Iceland in April--so excited!

#6. Do you have any upcoming projects you'd like your readers to know about?

I'm finishing up the 3rd book in my funny/romantic zombie apocalypse series from Entangled Teen. (I use the word "series" loosely--you don't need to read one to understand the others). That novel releases Halloween 2015! I'm also working on a YA mystery/romance--no zombies in this one. :)

Alison Kemper is the author of DEAD OVER HEELS and DONNA OF THE DEAD; both books spent many weeks on the Kindle teen humor bestseller lists.

Her third book with Entangled Teen will be released in 2015. She lives in a small town in North Carolina where she hikes and eats obscene amounts of barbeque.
