Interview with author Elizabeth Holloway
Sum up Call Me Grim in one sentence?
Libbi must choose to die like she’s supposed to, or live a lonely life as a Grim Reaper, but she’s not prepared when her best friend shows up marked as a future murderer.
Where did the idea for Call Me Grim come from?
The seed of the idea for Call Me Grim came from a question that popped into my head one day: What if the Grim Reaper wanted to quit his job? I don’t even know what I was thinking about before that, so I’ll just say it appeared in my brain, all magic-like.
Then I thought this: Why would he want to quit? The obvious answer was: Because Grim Reaper has got to be the suckiest job title in the world. Who wouldn’t want to quit? The next thing I wondered was: Would anyone in their right mind even consider taking over such a crappy job? Libbi Piper spoke up and answered that question in the form of a novel.
Describe the following characters in 140 characters or less: Libbi & Aaron
Libbi: Smart, snarky, aspiring artist who gets more than she bargained for when she crosses the street and literally meets Death, face to face.
Aaron: Mysterious and handsome, Aaron is nice to look at, but there's something about him being the Grim Reaper that makes him a bit untrustworthy.
If you had to tell someone one reason to read Call Me Grim what would it be?
Ugh! I hate questions like this! It’s the equivalent of being asked what makes you perfect for a job in an interview. I’m terrible at tooting my own horn. But, since you asked, I’ll give it a try.
One reason to read Call Me Grim is because my psychic cat says it’s good for your soul.
You see? I suck at this.

The truck should have turned Libbi Piper into a Libbi Pancake — and it would have, too, if Aaron hadn’t shown up and saved her life. The problem? Aaron’s the local Grim Reaper… and he only saved Libbi’s life because he needs someone to take over his job. Now, Libbi has two days to choose between dying like she was supposed to, or living a lonely life as Death Incarnate. Talk about a rock and a hard place.
And the choice goes from hard to sucktastic when her best friend shows up marked: condemned as a future murderer. Libbi could have an extra week to stop the murder and fix the mark… but only if she accepts Aaron’s job as Reaper, trapping herself in her crappy town forever, invisible and inaudible to everyone except the newly dead. But, if she refuses? Her best friend is headed straight for Hell.
Elizabeth Holloway is a registered nurse living in Southern Pennsylvania with her two teen children, Bam-bam the dog, and Tinkerbell the cat. CALL ME GRIM is her first novel.
