So, here's what I did: I wrote a zombie book. I've been a fan of zombie movies for a long time, and always been especially disturbed by the thought of that sort of half life after death. It always bugged me...do you know on any level that you're a zombie? Much as it's always been a question for me, I didn't explore it in the book, do you know why? Because in the context of an apocalypse, it's the survivors who are interesting; not the catastrophe itself.
So I wrote a book called 'The Boat' and it is about the survivors and how such an event might, potentially, change people. You might find yourself identifying with one or more of the characters or at least recognizing some of them as people you see on a daily basis. Next time you have an idle minute, look around and ask yourself not only what would I do? but...who else would I want there with me?
I wrote it under a lot of pressure, because we wanted to have it in time for the show in Cherry Hill, Monster Mania Con, where we'll be vendors. The husband and I figured a zombie book was perfect for the event. I think the pressure shows through. It's a very fast-paced story. Exciting and also scary.
I hope you'll check it out! The info is on the website.
