Mad Libs: Brodi Ashton

Today's guest on Author Mad Libs is Brodi Ashton, author of the acclaimed debut EVERNEATH.  She was sent a list of parts of speech. This is the result. :)

Last spring, Nikki Beckett _plopped_, sucked into a _monster truck_ known as the Everneath, where _zombies_ Feed on the emotions of despairing _fireworks_. Now she's returned- to her old _cereal_, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the _nail polish_... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to _strip_ her, six months for good-byes she can't find the _snowballs_ for, six months to find _toaster_, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months _flailing_ with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than _a missile_. But there's a problem: Cole, the _textured_ immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal _pinky_. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his _binky_.

As Nikki's _slinky_grows short and her _brains_ begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the _most sissified_ decision of her life: find a way to _grab_ fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or _heave_ to the Everneath and become Cole's...
About Brodi:
Because of two parents who were Greek myth _boxers_, she grew up thinking the latest fashion trends were inspired by _Rafael Nadal_, and a _hunky_ conversational opener was, “So, which mythological _ear hair_do you most resemble?” Despite these social_bums_, she found a _purple_ husband who’s always her first reader. She lives in _Hank Azaria_ with her two young _bandaids_, who still have no idea why she's at the computer all the time.

She received a Bachelor’s degree in _Pot_ from the University of Utah and a Master’s degree in _Smokin'_ Relations from the London School of Economics.
