Drunk womanizer Duke spends his life selfishly, with his motto being "screw the rest of the world". After one particular black out after an alcoholic binge, he wakes to find the world changed, and the dead rising from their graves.
Lonely, guilt-ridden Hank is someone who minds his own business. Lana is sympathetic but strong-willed student, and often found on the receiving end of harassment by her classmates.
Forced together for survival, the three misfits must confront their world gone strange. The end has come, and Duke, Hank, and Lana must depend on each other to make it through the chaos.
1. Your characters are Duke, Hank, and Lana. Can you give us a little background on them? Who are they and what can you tell us about them (without too many spoilers!).
Pembroke: Duke is a drunk, Lana is a teenage girl who has lost her faith, and Hank is a devout Christian who is trying to save the other’s lives—both physically and spiritually.
They are all thrown together after zombies have risen from the grave and have to figure out a way to survive.
2. Where did you come up with the idea for this book?
Pembroke: I’m a huge zombie fan, and I have been for a while, but I wanted to write something a little different. I remembered there was a passage in the Bible about how God commanded the dead to rise and take care of His enemies. I had never written a religious zombie story before, so I thought it would be fun to see how it turned out.
3. There is a lot of horror out there. How is Finding Eden different?
Pembroke: Finding Eden is different because it’s a religious story. There are lots of passages from the Bible in the story, and it has a happy ending. Not all horror has that.
