On her website, Dana Fredsti describes herself as a 'novelist and screenwriter, B-movie actress (okay, C movie actress), zombie aficionado, exotic and domestic feline advocate, swordfighter, wine lover and beach glass junkie.' Perhaps she is or isn't, but her Plague Town novel, which I recently read, was very similar to the type of movies she acts in.
Hopefully, her other books are better. Speaking of which, here they are:
Ashley Parker Novels:
Plague Town (1)
Plague Nation (2)
Plague World (3)
Murder for Hire: The Peruvian Pigeon
Hell on Heels
She also has a psudonym, Inara LaVey, who writes erotica.
