WHY: To share her new novel

Frozen by Carla Tomaso (Carma Publishing, November 15, 2012, $9.95) is a dark, tense comedy involving cryonics, reanimation and a daughter’s determination to create the good mother she always wanted. Unfortunately, little mom is an exaggerated version of her former self and things quickly get out of hand. 

Frozen is Carla Tomaso’s fifth book; it revisits the mother/daughter theme found in much of her work. Her own mother, says Tomaso, was an extreme narcissist and she began writing Frozen to help work through the anger and longing this caused.

In creating Helen—a character that makes “Mommie Dearest” look tame—Tomaso has written a chilling page-turner deepened by Elizabeth’s vulnerability and the terrifying anticipation of what Helen will do next.
