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.

Vampire Vow - Michael Schiefelbein This thin novel is the first in a series about Victor, a man who became a vampire shortly after Jesus' resurrection and who has now, 2000 years later, found someone who might take Jesus's place in his fevered brain.

The main character is unlikable. He's learned nothing in 2000 years--nor has he by the end of this book. Also, some of Schiefelbein's vampire myth makes no sense. But it's a fairly quick read, and if you're in the mood for blood and violence and non-consensual gay sex, this might hit the spot for you.
