Q.What is the inspiration for the story?
My favorite play that I designed costumes for was a production of Night of the Living Dead. From helping the community volunteers with Zombie University to finding that classic trench coat look for Barbara, I had a ball. I wanted to combine that wonderful experience within a suspense horror/farce.
Q.Tell us about the cover and the inspiration for it.
When I worked on the stage play version of Night of the Living Dead, as a joke for the cast and crew I took the artwork from the program of that production and made a parody of it. Thus the "Teatime" idea was born. The playfulness of my old parody could not be forgotten.
