After the first harrowing but successful zombie encounter, fourteen-year-old Goldie Rich and her older sister, Gema, make amends. Since Gema still doesn’t share Goldie’s belief in zombies, Goldie and best friend, Rita, decide to keep their zombie activities a secret. With nine souls left to free from the magical pendant Goldie found, her zombie hunting days are far from over.
The warring light and dark magic of the pendant give Goldie frequent nightmares. Her visions give her clues of what lies ahead and what she needs to do to defeat the evil Bokor. As she struggles to unravel them while keeping it a secret, friends Jonny and Blake get pulled into the zombie hunt. Just when Goldie finally feels she has the mission under control, some new discoveries alert her that the dark magic has placed Gema in danger.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
It will make you laugh and pique your curiosity with fast-paced action, mystery, fun characters and, of course, magical zombies.
Hands down dark chocolate. It’s really the only candy I crave. If we’re talking natural food, I’d have to go with Honeycrisp apples. A nice, steaming slice of gooey cheese pizza is right up there, too.
What’s your favorite season/weather?
I love heat and hibernate in the cold, so I’d go with summer. I like the outdoors and won’t hesitate to play tennis, garden or hike in 90+ temperatures.
Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
The Zombie Nightmare will be released soon as will the third book in my Pirates Off series, Pirates Off Kilter. I am working on two YA books. One is a horror/supernatural thriller and the other is a realistic fiction adventure.
After working an assortment of jobs, which include a computer programmer, marketing director, and substitute teacher, T.W. Kirchner decided to concentrate on her second loves, writing and art. Her first loves are her husband, two children, and furry menagerie known as the Kirchner Zoo. Pirates Off the Deep End and Pirates Off the Wall are my first published novels. The Troubled Souls of Goldie Rich: The Zombie Next Door and The Troubled Souls of Goldie Rich: The Zombie Upstairs are now available. A sequel to Pirates will be out around summer 2014
