OMG YOU GUYS it has come to my attention that SOMEONE on the internet is saying that my fictional 19th century zombies are NOT SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND. Naturally, I am crushed. To think, IF ONLY I'd consulted with a zombologist or two before sitting down to write, I could've avoided ALL THIS EMBARRASSMENT.

CHERIE PRIEST, "A Zombie Lament", official website, Oct. 27, 2010

Truth travels slowly when rumors have wings of gold.


It's funny what they say about men in uniform -- how people think women just can't resist 'em. Fact is, I think we're just pleased to see a man groomed, bathed, and wearing clothes that fit him.

I've heard it said that God made all men, but Samuel Colt made all men equal.

CHERIE PRIEST, Dreadful Skin

I’m an utter dork in more ways than are immediately visible to the naked eye. I’m inordinately fond of zombies, trashy goth music, and cheap red wine. I have a deep-seated aversion to unfinished ceramics, an allergy to yellow dye #7, and a morbid fear of sloths. I put ketchup on almost everything.

CHERIE PRIEST, interview, The Mad Hatter's Bookshelf & Book Review

Dumb protagonists bore me, both as a reader and a writer. But likewise, superhero protagonists who aren't really at any risk of failure ... they aren't very interesting either, unless they're so deeply flawed that their faults threaten to sabotage their success at every turn.

Ideas come from everywhere. New ideas are never the problem; finding the time to act on them – that’s the problem.

CHERIE PRIEST, Alternative Magazine Online, Jul. 18, 2011

I really do enjoy convention-going, yes - it's always fun to meet readers and hang with other writers for awhile. When you work from home (as a writer, or anything else, I imagine) you spend a lot of time by yourself, so these kinds of get-togethers are good for the soul.
