Rose Lee is a zombie social worker in post-apocalypse Hornellsville, trying to help out zombies who are having a tough go of it. She is ever watchful, looking for the next human who may have succumbed to the zombie disease. Humans who have survived the apocalypse have a hard time understanding why she would help the zombies, especially since they are supposed to be violent.
Rose dispels some of the common misconceptions about zombies, such as they can’t eat brains because their teeth are falling out, and they must live in air conditioned surroundings or be at risk of disintegrating completely. This is a task that she takes on with humor and tenacity.
Life is pretty much an uphill battle until she finds an ally – a zombie hunter named Alex Georgiades. While he is a womanizer, he soon realizes Rose is a no-nonsense kind of girl who can easily resist his charms (and can run in high heels). Together they begin to deal with the wreckage of their town, and figure out who wants the zombie virus to keep ripping through humans in the U.S.A.

When she isn't writing (which isn't very often), she can be found outside chasing escapee chickens who want to get to the other side of the road, and wrangling ducks that would prefer to be wandering in ditches, much to the displeasure of local motorists.
