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.

I have nothing eloquent to say about Rick Yancey's Monstrumologist series. My thoughts  amount to "EEEEEEEeeeeeeeeee! Those books!" This series is some of the best horror I've read in a while. It's got great writing (great writing!), atmosphere, tension, suspense, gore, great characters and great dialogue. The publisher actually cancelled the series at book three, but the fanbase convinced them to let Yancey finish the story. I'm  reading the fourth and final book, The Final Descent, now—but slowly, for I will be sad, at the least, to see the last of Will Henry and Dr. Pellinore Warthrop.
