Kate Plesser is leading a dead-end life as an office assistant with a penchant for bad relationships. She is lost. When Kate is kidnapped by Hunter, a gorgeous stranger, she assumes that he is just some sick psychopath. She never suspects that he is actually a vampire, and that she is about to be plunged into a world stranger than her wildest dreams. In the underground city where Hunter lives, she encounters his otherworldly cousin Chase, who holds the key to her freedom. She is thrust into a village where humans are farmed for feeding and breeding. In this mysterious new world beneath Queens, New York, Kate eventually finds something she never expected; her own purpose.
Tracy Auerbach was born and raised in Queens, New York. She studied film, English, and education, and some of her college poetry was published in the “Penn Review” (The University of Pennsylvania’s premiere literary magazine). She went on to teach and write S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) curriculum for the New York Department of Education. This helped to polish her writing skills and ignite her passion for science fiction. Her first scholarly article, published in “Language Magazine,” was about the value of kinesthetic learning for children.
On the fiction side, Tracy’s work is featured in the online literary journal “Micro-horror,” and “The Writing Disorder” fiction anthology. Her first novel, “The Human Cure,” was published by 48Fourteen. When she is not teaching or writing, Tracy is usually reading, performing science experiments, or playing with her own children. She lives in New York with her husband and two sons.
