Name That Author!: June 14, 2012

Today’s installment of Name That Author! is sponsored by Dead Reckoning by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill.

The sun rises in the east . . . but the dead rise in the West

Jett is a girl disguised as a boy, living as a gambler in the old West as she searches for her long-lost brother. Honoria Gibbons is a smart, self-sufficient young woman who also happens to be a fabulous inventor. Both young women travel the prairie alone – until they are brought together by a zombie invasion! As Jett and Honoria investigate, they soon learn that these zombies aren’t rising from the dead of their own accord … but who would want an undead army? And why?
