BAR HARBOR — Marsha Hinton, whose new novel, “Zombie Moose of West Bath, Maine,” is a hilarious spoof of the zombie craze, will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Wednesday, June 15, at 6:30 p.m. for an author talk and book signing.
A zombie moose suddenly starts attacking people in the small town in Maine, and environmentalist Gaige LaRoche is trying to get to the bottom of it. LaRoche, fueled by Moxie and whoopie pies, encounters all kinds of obstacles to stop the moose, including teacup Chihuahuas, irate bees, inept selectmen and, most importantly, a crazed female Viking with a vendetta.
Bill Bushnell of the Kennebec Journal/Morning Sentinel said the book is “a wacky tale that has more laughs than scares, more goofballs than gore … . This silly story never takes itself seriously, but that’s what makes it so funny.”
Hinton worked as a freelancer and as a business ghostwriter before turning to fiction. She is the author of three books and is working on her fourth, “Jeezley Pirates of West Bath, Maine.” Visit www.marshahinton.com.
