Read full description of the books:
Two redhead educators and a horror publisher walk into a bar . . . during a zombie apocalypse. Armed with only their wits and a fully-charged-laptop battery, they hammered out the world's darkest writing manual amidst the flurry and chaos of gnashing teeth and rotting cadavers. Each chapter of the handbook is devoted to a different genre of writing--everything from academic writing (complete with MLA and APA sample essays), business writing, and even poetry and fiction--all of it with a dark and undead twist. Developing or improving your writing skills has never been so enjoyable. WRITE OF THE LIVING DEAD is the spawn of two scholarly writers and a publisher conspiring to create a freshly dug look at writing for different genres and media. Spattered with popular horror culture and written with horror enthusiasts in mind, this book raises the struggling writing handbook from the dead. Addressing methods of voice, style, function, and formula, WRITE OF THE LIVING DEAD is the perfect tool for students, writers, poets, authors, business writers, and teachers with a dark side.

Read information about the authorAraminta Star Matthews was born to a pair of geeks from very different geekdom styles: her mother, an avid Stephen King enthusiast, blacked out the windows in her crypt-style bedroom and drank tomato juice lovingly labeled "Fresh Blood;" while her father, a science-fiction/fantasy junky, read her The Lord of the Rings (with voices) on nights he wasn't building his to-pewter-figurine-scale Dungeons and Dragons models. She is pretty proud of her geek heritage, straight down to her redheaded roots, and wears the geek label with pride (sewn into all her cotton shirts). In her books, you see a blend of these two lifestyles: quirky sci-fi fantasy meets dark, bloody horror. At least, she hopes that's what you see...
In addition to being an uber-geek, Araminta is an accomplished educator at both the secondary and postsecondary level, having earned a terminal degree in Creative Writing (she could just call it an MFA, but "terminal" is so much more appropriate). She is passionate about her subject and loves bringing new ways of reading and writing to her students. Her book, Write of the Living Dead, coauthored with Rachel Lee and Stan Swanson, brings many of her writing lessons to print.
Because Araminta can't bring herself to sit still even for a moment, she spends her spare time (when she is not teaching or writing or editing) playing MMORPG's, reading (mostly classics), and inventing. She lives in Central Maine with her supportive partner, their toddler (also a ginger), her whippet, Devo, and her Jack-Chi, Crivens.
