Marie F Crow
Marie F Crow believes that monsters should keep you up at night with the thoughts of "what if" stalking your mind. She began writing after feeling thrillers were getting too far away from the actual raw feelings, forgetting what a “monster” is, and what they can mean to your world.
The recent advents of movies and literature have pushed the concept of the “undead” too far into the realm of the mundane and cute. There is a need to once more rehash the genre with the proper respect to the psychological ramifications, and sheer horror, that monsters deserve.
That sheer horror of possibly having to kill your friends, family, or anyone else for that matter before they become a shambling corpse willing, even driven, to consume the flesh of their own. The psychological destruction for the survivors to overcome and the guilt that it could cause to those left behind. Will they be strong enough to push through the suffering or strike out in their misery? Will it pull people together or push them apart? These are the concepts that Marie explores in her writing; the basic human aspect of survival.
With the release of The Risen series, she hopes to, once again, breathe fear back into the genre that has always been a favorite of hers. Crafting her stories with honest emotions, and believable circumstances, she creates her worlds with an added twist to the classic monsters. She believes nothing is sacred and invites the reader to explore the depth of that concept by luring them deeper into her realm with visual images and emotional drama all wrapped with a sparkling, gore dripping bow.
With open arms, she welcomes them back hoping that they will enjoy the ride, but requests they do keep all their limbs inside the ride at all times. The Risen are waiting, and they are hungry.
