The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died. I brought him back to life. Then things got a little weird...

Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper-and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath. Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath. Who seems to hate her guts.

Rath will be watching closely to be sure she completes her first assignment-reaping Rick, the boy who should have died. The boy she still wants to be with. To make matters worse, students at the academy start turning up catatonic, and accusations fly-against Molly. The only way out of this mess? To go through hell. Literally.

Now onto the interview and the playlist!

Hey Michele! First I wanted to say I love Egyptian Mythology and Undeadly sounds awesome!

Thank you so much, Jaime! I appreciate being on Two Chicks on Books today and I’m very excited to be here! I love Egyptian mythology, too, and I really liked incorporating those elements into Molly’s world.

So my first question is why did you decide to write about Egyptian Myth?

I've had a long-term fascination with ancient Egyptian culture and their complex pantheon of gods. I especially like their ideas about the underworld and its keepers. Their view of death and the afterlife is rich with ideas and images that gave me great inspiration for how to create the world that Molly lives in.

For those who haven’t had the chance to read Undeadly can you give us a little background on the story?

Molly is on the verge of turning sixteen and *this close* to dating one of the cutest and most popular boys at her high school. She’s a ka heka, a necromancer who can makes zombies, so she works at her father’s zomporium learning the trade. Other than that, she’s a fairly normal teenage girl … at least until the night of her sixteenth birthday.

Who was your favorite character to write? Least favorite?

My favorite character is Molly. (My next favorite is reaper Rath.) I don’t know that I had any least favorite characters. I had some least favorite moments with characters, creating difficult situations for Molly because she has to learn and grow as a person and as a reaper.

Since today you are sharing a playlist with me how does music influence your writing?

Music can be inspiring and mood-altering, which is great from a creative perspective. Music is very personal. It reflects how we feel—about ourselves, our world, our friends. The sound, the words, the feelings created by the music and lyrics can influence you greatly, especially as a writer.

What are you writing now?

I’m writing UNCHOSEN, Book 2 in The Reaper Diaries. Yay!
