About Lara Frater
I’m a big fat girl who loves to write. I split my writing time into very different but sometimes overlapping worlds.
In 2005 I published a non-fiction book Fat Chicks Rule! How to Survive a Thin Centric World. It was a guidebook on being a big girl in a thin world and included information on how to fat positive books, movies, and TV, where to find fashion, comfortable seating, and how to deal with fat hatred. A few months after the book was published, I did a companion blog with the same name that I still update it every Monday.
From 2005-2011, I published essays, poetry and short stories.
In 2012, I published End of the Line the first in the series of three zombie novels that takes place in a world almost dead of the flu and having to deal the zombies who rose from the ashes. End of the Line was followed by Stuck in the Middle in 2013 and Full Circle in 2014.
I am also working on a three book dystopian series called Welcome to Pluto. I hope to have the first book out in 2016.
My favorite zombie novel of all time is War World Z and my favorite zombie movie is 28 Days Later. Honorable mention to the books: Feed, Warm Bodies, Ice Station Zombie and Married with Zombies and the movies: the original Night of the Living Dead, both versions of Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead, and Warm Bodies.
My favorite authors are: Joe R. Lansdale, Stephen King, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, Octavia Butler and Richard Matheson.
I live in New York City, am married to follow author Jonathan Frater and have lots of animals and people in my house. I’m in need of an exterminator or an obedient Dalek.
Stuck in the Middle is narrated by five very different people: Annemarie who finally realizes how dead the world really is; Jim who is still keeping his optimism in a strange new world; Tanya, a young leader questioning her abilities, Grace, who resists all attempts to get close to others and Mike who is unsure if he wants to protect more than just his own.
Stuck in the Middle continues a story not only about zombies but survival.
