North Carolina Fiction October 2012

Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
 Shakespeare, Macbeth
Get spooky!

Spotlight on Young Adult Fiction Author Carrie Ryan
In honor of this spooky month, we are highlighting a series by North Carolina writer Carrie Ryan.                                                                                                                                                        The Forest of Hands and Teeth, a New York Times best-selling post-apocalyptic zombie novel, is the first volume of this young adult fiction trilogy.  As the story opens, an unexplained disaster has turned much of the human race into mindless, cannibalistic undead. They roam the forest, seeking to destroy a band of survivors barricaded inside a walled village deep in the woods. However, the fence that protects these villagers also imprisons them within a dystopian society marked by violence, secrecy, and repression.

A former litigator, she now writes full time. She lives with her writer/lawyer husband, two fat cats and one large puppy in Charlotte, North Carolina.
