The Zoe Zone

Zoe loves books, writes horror, erotica and erotic romance, and can be found as close to the stage as possible at small clubs across the Southeastern U.S., rocking the fuck out to her favorite bands.


Under the name Holden Wells, she has published several short stories in gay erotica anthologies. One of these—Roughing It—has been revised and expanded into a novella and is now available in print and ebook format. The sequel to Roughing It will be coming out in 2014. A number of short stories featuring the same characters are also in the works, the first of which, "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," was released in ebook format in October 2013.


Zoe has also written a novel and a long story (both erotic romance) as Zoe X. Rider, both of which are currently seeking publication. In the meantime, she is working on a couple horror novels and a sequel to the erotic romance novel.

Alive in Necropolis - Doug Dorst I picked up the book because I'd heard good things about it from people whose opinions I trust. If I'd just come across the book at a store, though, I'd have walked right by it. The cover is misleading, making the book look like juvenile fiction--Harry Potter in a police uniform, perhaps--which it's not.

It's also not, per se, a ghost story, though ghosts are in it. It's not a police procedural. It's about people and lives and living, and it's extremely well done. I was engrossed in it, and now I'm a little sad that it's over and I won't be riding along with Mercer, Jude, Toronto and Fiona anymore.
