 Seventeen-year-old Eva is a chosen one. Chosen to live, while others meet a swift and painful death from an incurable virus so lethal, a person is dead within days of symptoms emerging. In the POD system, a series of underground habitats built by the government, she waits with the other chosen for the deadly virus to claim those above. Separated from family and friends, it's in the PODs she meets David. And while true love might not conquer all, it's a balm for the broken soul.

After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That's the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating... monsters.

Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life--a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure.

Another thing I really enjoyed was the romance between Eva and David. I didn't feel that their romance was rushed, or forced. It felt real, and genuine. I really felt the love they had for each other, and that they were willing to do anything they need to keep their love going strong. Even in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse they manged to still love each other to the fullest and not let anything stand in their way. Whether it be the government, zombies or other survivors. They were determined to love each other no matter what! I loved it, and at some parts I even pushed back tears, when their love was tested and pushed to the breaking point! , you really know how to create the most lively, refreshing, heart-throbbing romances! Definitely a big part in the book that I loved!


A virus has come out of nowhere, infecting people, and creating major chaos. When the virus first surfaced, it infected people, getting them sick, then eventually killing them. There was no cure or antidote, no medicine to help with the virus, and no way to stop or even slow it down. And it was moving to fast, infecting populations everywhere, sweeping through every country, and slowly wiping them out! The human species was on the brink of extinction. Something had to be done, or the whole human race would be no more.

So the government introduced The PODs system. The PODs were underground habitats designed to provide protection from an Extinction Level Event. So that's where the humans would stay to wait out the virus.



I'm a wife, mother, author, reader, although not always in that order. I've been an avid reader since a young child. I began writing for personal enjoyment in college, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in accounting. Why I chose a degree that didn't encourage creativity is a mystery to me.

I'm addicted to Reese's peanut butter cups and eat way too many while I write. I have a weird obsession with hoodies and can't write without wearing one. I hate to cook, but love to watch cooking shows.

I'm an unabashed romantic and love swoon-worthy happy endings that give me butterflies for days.

Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, I now reside in a small community outside Houston, Texas with my incredibly supportive, not to mention gorgeous, husband, three amazing school-aged children, a 125-pound lap dog, and a cat that thinks she's queen.

I write adult and young adult Sci/Fi, urban fantasy and paranormal romances.

I love to hear from readers and other authors, so drop me a note and say "Hi!"
