In Creature Feature by Steven Paul Leiva, the main character, Kathy Anderson, also known as Vivacia, the star in Vivacia’s House of Horrors, decides she is “sick and tired of being a sex goddess for geeks,” she quits the television show and returns to New York to get back into real acting. She stops at her childhood hometown in Placidville, Illinois for rest and relaxation, only to find everything slightly off. She can’t quite figure out what is wrong, but finds that her parents are acting strangely (her mom’s appetizer is live beetles on lettuce!), her best friend is not her bestie anymore, and the kids in her old high school drama class are asking political questions instead of the easy acting questions she was looking forward to. As Kathy reluctantly gets drawn deeper into Placidville’s weirdness, the town’s nerd is there to try to rescue her, often with her resistance.

Creature Feature by Steven Paul Leiva is a perfect story for those who love horror B-movies. It’s complete with ugly and slimy creatures, wild adventures, a little comedy, and an unaware beautiful damsel in distress. I hung on to Steven Paul Leiva’s every word as Kathy and an unlikely local nerd hero try to save Placidville’s townspeople from fire-breathing dragons, a demon with an ego this big, and slimy blobs of nastiness. Creature Feature is action-packed and loaded with monsters galore, gadgets out of this world (Leiva really needs to patent his Interdimensional TV idea!), and an exciting climax worthy of any 5-star B-movie midnight horror-comedy flick. I’m looking forward to reading more from Steven Paul Leiva.
