The Infected


Title: The Infected
Series: PODs #2

Author: Michelle K. Pickett
Publication Date: October 12, 2015
Genres: Post-Apocalyptic, Young/New Adult



A virus nearly wiped out humankind…

Months have passed since a human infection has been
reported. Survivors of the deadly pandemic have finally
started to build a life in a world left devastated by plague.

Ironically, for nineteen-year-old Eva, life made more sense
when she battled the deadly Infected than it does in the
serenity of her new home in Rosewood. Separated from
fiancé and former POD-mate, David, after an impossible
ultimatum, Eva finds her life a little lonely and a lot confusing.

But as troubled as Eva’s life is, it’s about to take a turn
for the worse as untold dangers watch and
wait for the right moment to attack…

The virus refuses to die quietly.

About the Author

I can’t write without a hoodie. Yeah, I live it Texas. We all have our quirks.

I majored in accounting in college. I was required to declare a major, but I had no clue what I wanted to do, so I picked accounting because it was the first thing listed in the booklet the counselor gave me. Surprisingly, I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. Go figure.

Michelle K. PickettForget coffee. Hand over the Red Bull or Monster Khaos and no one gets hurt. Seriously, just set it down and step away. I will turn into a normal human after I guzzle my can of caffeine.

I hate to cook, but love to watch cooking shows on television.

I paint my nails weird colors just to see my husband roll his eyes and make my 9 year-old twin girls giggle. Oh, and mortify my 13 year-old son.

I’m a hopeful romantic and love swoon-worthy endings that keep the butterflies going for days, but I don’t believe a HEA always ends with the boy getting the girl. Sometimes a HEA is an ending we don’t see coming, but is still best for the characters.

I write across genres in the young adult and new adult age groups while eating way too many peanut butter M&Ms (but we’ll keep that second part just between us).

I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan, but now live in a suburb of Houston, TX with my very supportive family, a 125lb rescue “puppy” and a 12lb attack cat, also a rescue animal.

And last, (but certainly not least), I love my family with everything in me. Everything I am, is theirs. There are no words in any language known to man to describe my love for them. They are my center.

I’d love to hear from you. So drop me an email! Let’s chat. You tell me what you like in books, what you’d like to see happen in the writing community, what type of books you like to see more of…less of—I want to hear it all! So tell me, please. Because the one thing I wish I could put on my list, but I still haven’t figured out how to do, is mind-reading. But don’t tell my kids. I still have them fooled. 🙂

  1. You sure get an immediate idea about what this book is about with its cover and title. Dark, I’d say at first look. I like the friendly bio by the author. I’d never consider a book like this coming from someone who majored in accounting, but you just don’t know. Interesting synopsis.


    • LOL! I get that a lot. The funny thing is, I went from accounting, where creativity is a big no-no, to an author where I’m free to create whatever I’d like. 🙂 And when friends first heard of my books, they were surprised by the subject, too. But I also write romances… so it balances out. 🙂
