What is your latest release and what genre is it? The Ghoul Archipelago is a hardcore horror sea adventure (with a soupçon of political satire.)

Quick description: The Ghoul Archipelago is partly my love letter to zombie fans (try to count all the Easter eggs) and partly my attempt to gain real street cred in the horror community. This is extreme horror at its goriest and I’m very proud of all the stomachs I’ve turned. This book’s got heart, though, in the form of a scrappy crew of smugglers who find themselves adrift in the South Pacific in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. When they receive a distress call from the American mainland they feel obliged to rescue the survivors, but first they must battle cannibals, pirates, and three of the nastiest villains who ever disgraced the globe.

What are you working on now?
What am I not working on? Ha! Several projects in the works—a couple book projects, short stories … keeping out of trouble!

Christine’s reading recommendation:
I like to read in a lot of different genres. I just finished reading Wedding Ring by Emilie Richards. It was a good story centering on family history and the mother’s quilts, family complications and life’s changes, resulting in a nice, unexpected ending.

Odium Origins red cover fear What is your latest release and what genre is it? My latest release is Odium Origins. A Dead Saga Novella. Part One. It is apocalyptic zombie horror.

Odium The Dead Saga cover

Quick description:
It’s actually an accompaniment to my full length novel – Odium. The Dead Saga.

Brief biography:
My first novel, Limerence, is a dark paranormal romance. I like to break boundaries with my writing, incorporating an old school style of horror and romance. Sexy and dark. (Think Bram Stokers Dracula, but for the 21st century!)

My current full length novel is a dystopian post-apocalyptic zombie novel titled Odium, and it focuses on survival, and how it would change us.

I have also written several short horror stories, with more coming in the new year.

My newest creation is Odium Origins. A Dead Saga Novella. Part One which was released December 27th, 2013 and is an accompaniment to Odium, but can be read as a standalone.

I am an avid reader of all genres, a book collector, general procrastinator and have a great zombie apocalypse plan in place thanks to a questionnaire I asked my readers to fill in for me. I collect mugs, am an 80’s movie fan and hate sprouts!
