Rissa Blakeley is the author of a fantasy paranormal series, Corvidae Guard, and a post-apocalyptic saga, Shattered Lives, which features a paranormal twist and has been adapted into graphic novel form.
As a native New Yorker, Rissa is now a Georgia transplant who is completely addicted to black coffee and La Croix, obsessively listening to songs on repeat. Her days are packed with characters screaming for more scenes, cats living up to their Harry Potter namesakes, lazy dogs, a teenage daughter, who’s bringing Emo back, and a Viking husband, who finds her puns less than funny. When Rissa isn’t writing, she can be found procrastinating on social media.https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/author/ref=dbs_P_W_auth?_encoding=UTF8&author=Rissa%20Blakeley&searchAlias=digital-text&asin=B00K042WWU
I’m Suzanne Sussex the author of the Safe Zone series. I first started writing in 2016 after a debate with my boyfriend about what to do in a zombie apocalypse. My answer is to hole up and hope for the best. His answer; re-join the army and fight the good fight… leaving me behind.
As a massive fan of zombie films and books, this debate sparked an idea and with it the Safe Zone series was born.
I was born and raised in Hampshire, England and I’m lucky enough to have had an opportunity through my day job in banking to move around the country. I eventually settled in North Wales; just on the Welsh/ English border. I lives with my boyfriend, and neurotic cat Daisy.
When I’m not writing or working, (or arguing about apocalypse plans) I can usually be found running or walking around the Welsh countryside. Training for some crazy long distance event
It’s women in Horror month and my first choice is the goth queen, Rhiannon Frater! I will not start counting up all her books, because there are allot, check out her Amazon page! I know that I make a big deal of my page being a zombie page, but I adore all her vampire series so much. Not only that the historical research is on point, but the action scenes are awesome, fast paced and captivating.
I will just say that her work is special. It is the type of story that stays with you, in your heart and mind. Rhiannons characters are very realistic, even if you don’t like them, they make sense. She touches so many aspects of zompoc and horror, it is absolutely fascinating and amazing to be privileged to enter the universe of Rhiannon Frater. Her zombies are old fashioned zombies and evolved zombies, she approaches the Zombie story from so many different angles in a way that most authors would never have the courage too. I had the pleasure to do a live interview with her, and she’s not only a amazing author but also a very fun conversation partner.. Between the two of us we talked for about 2 hours and still had so much to say! I am a fan. If you search for great horror, you find something you like on her page!
