Written by Saxon Bennett and Layce Gardner
People always ask us where our ideas come from. I usually answer that our books are born in our kitchen. I don’t know why the kitchen. Perhaps it’s the nurturing idea of food, perhaps it’s the smells, the tastes… Honestly, I really have no idea. All I know is that the kitchen is where most of our books are born.
Just like our newest book. We gave birth one day while Layce was cooking.
I was setting the table when I suddenly announced, “I have an idea.”
“Do I want to know?” Layce poured more batter in the pan. We were having one of my favorite dinners—pancakes. Layce makes great pancakes.
“We need to take a break from romantic comedy—try something new for a bit. Stretch our legs,” I said.
“What do you want to write about—zombies?” she said jokingly.
“That’s a great idea!”
“But I thought you said you already had an idea?” Layce said.
“My idea was about writing something new and different—I just didn’t know what. But now I know. We’ll write a story about zombies. Only we’ll make them lesbians.”
“And we can have these bad ass women fighting them,” Layce said.
“There’ll be lots of danger, and remember all the contingency plans I have for an apocalypse? We can use those ideas. These women will be really smart and resourceful.”
“Why are we making the zombies lesbian?” Layce asked.
“I thought you’d never ask. The zombies attack the vajayjay, not the brains…”
“You’re kidding, right?”
“No, that’ll be the funny part,” I said.
“I like it,” Layce said sounding less uncertain..
Layce handed me a short stack of pancakes on a plate. “We’ll call it ‘Attack of the Lesbian Zombies.’ Like it’s a B-movie. It’s a satire on all things zombie. And it’ll be a trilogy.”
“Now you’re talking,” I said, smearing butter over my pancakes.
“I’d read it.”
“I would, too.”
And that’s how our latest book “Attack of the Lesbian Zombies” was born. Right in our kitchen, over pancakes. If you rush out and purchase the book right now, you will also receive a short stack of Layce’s famous pancakes.*
