What They Choose

People die. So many illusions crumbled when death touched Eleanore Wright. She ran away from the ruins of one life toward the ruins of another. When she discovered that her husband and grandmother both died on the same day, maybe the same hour, a series of events were set in motion that would change her life forever. Nothing in the world was what it seemed. She didn’t believe in haunted houses or second chances. She ran to a place from her past and found a stranger there, with scars, a hammer in hand, and stains on his boots. Will she find peace within the house’s peeling paint, dusty rooms, and mysterious sounds? Maybe if the glowing eyes stay among the overgrown tombstones. Death has followed her, waited for her, and watched her from shadows and secret passages. Eleanore Wright soon discovered that she inherited more than just a house and a place to rest. But was she really sleeping?

Meet Lara Frater

I’m your atypical fat gamer girl who loves to write: Horror, non-fiction, poems, paranormal suspense, non-fiction, and sci-fi. Although I prefer to write fiction, my first book was the non-fiction Fat Chicks Rule! A guidebook on being a big girl in a thin world and included information on how to find fat positive books, movies, and TV, where to find fashion, comfortable seating, and how to deal with fat hatred. Writing this book changed my life and perspective on dieting and fat bodies. I also wrote the essay “Fat Heroines in Chick Lit” for the Fat Studies Reader. (This essay from mentioned in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, so woohoo!) But my first love was fiction, which I returned to with the End of the Line series. Three zombie novels that take place in a world almost dead of the flu and having to deal with the zombies who rose from the ashes. End of the Line was followed by Stuck in the Middle and Full Circle (Coming 2024). And maybe more books to come. Changing gears I moved on to a more lighthearted paranormal suspense/ horror series Paranormal Pest Control. Where exterminators and paranormal investigators fight demonic bugs. The first book is out. The second book “Dark Thing in the Cemetery” is expected April 2024. I have also appeared in Tales from the Canyon of the Damned and Necrotic Tissues, and have essays about library science (my fun day job). I’m heavily influenced by Joe R. Lansdale, Stephen King, Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler and Richard Matheson. I live in New York City, married to fellow author Jon Frater and have lots of animals and people in my house. I’m in need of an exterminator or an obedient Dalek.

It wasn’t until she was 25 that she was discovered by a traveling National Geographic scientist and brought back to civilization. This is sometimes apparent in the way that she attempts to escape through tubes when startled.

Her transition to normalcy has been slow, but scientists predict that she will have mastered basics such as fork use sometime in the next year. More complex skills, such as proper grocery store etiquette, may be forever outside her reach.
