Marie F Crow weaves her stories around the human element of the horror verses the ‘monsters’ themselves. She believes that the real horror of life does not come from the expected, but from the unexpected responses of the human nature and what depths of trauma a person must survive in certain situations. She began writing The Risen series when feeling that the popular genre was slipping too deep into the realm of pure ‘slasher’ and forgetting what the horror of zombies can mean for a story.
Now, with her children’s series launched, Marie hopes to use her favorite ‘monster’ as a teaching tool to inspire children to understand that not everything that looks scary, is scary. With Abigail and Her Pet Zombie series, Marie hopes to further spread her love for all things ‘that go bump in the night’ with small children showing them that it’s okay to be different and to embrace those same differences in those around them.
Marie is an award winning author. Her novel, Dawning, received the Literary Titan Gold Award.
