Shifters, Zombies, and Vampires? Oh my!
My name is Dorothy Gale, and I think I might be dead.
When my dog Toto and I got swept up in a twister, we landed in hell. A very colorful hell. Like a rainbow dripping in blood. Now it looks as though this dreadful underworld plagued with vampires, zombies, and shifters will be the site of my eternal damnation.
They say this terrifying land called Oz isn’t hell or purgatory and escape is possible, but first I must survive the journey down the blood-soaked yellow brick road to the only place in Oz where vampires dare not tread—The City of Emeralds.
With enchanted footwear and the help of my three new friends—a friendly zombie, a massive shifter lion, and a heartless axe murderer of evil night creatures (who also happens to be the hottest guy I’ve ever seen)—Toto and I have a chance to make it to the Vampire Free Zone. When we get there, I must convince the most powerful wizard in this magical land of monsters to send us out of this radiant nightmare and back to the world of the living. They say he’s just as frightening as this monstrous land, that he detests visitors, and even the most horrifying creatures cower in his presence. But I must seek him out. And when I find him, I’ll do whatever it takes to make him send me home.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A dream I had during my pregnancy with my daughter. I had a lot of crazy dreams when I was pregnant and one of them was being on the set of a Bollywood movie—it was a remake of The Wizard of Oz but with vampires. When I woke up, I spoke to a friend on the phone and relayed the dream, and she suggested I write it. I thought it must exist, so I looked it up and found it didn't—I was surprised. So I started to think about it and went back to the original text. Suddenly, I was writing it and here we are.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Dorothy in the Land of Monsters is a pastiche, so most of the characters are from the original book. As far as the adjustments I made to their characters, it was all right there for the taking. The Scarecrow was a perfect fit for a zombie desperate for brains. The Tinman was easily altered to become a heartless ax murderer, and the Cowardly Lion was obviously going to be a shifter. It's as though L. Frank Baum expected it to happen and laid all the groundwork.
