WiHM 9 Presents - Alathia Paris Morgan
A Doomed ...voyage.
Everyone knows the tale of the Titanic, but here is what actually happened on April 14, 1912. Murder, chaos, and the undead threaten to sink the ship faster than any iceberg.
As a nurse, Nora Ryan was prepared for the common illnesses, but what she discovers instead is an infection modern medicine has yet to name.
Head steward, Jonathan Davis was not expecting to meet Nora and he certainly wasn’t expecting to fight a deadly infection alongside her. As the first victim of this strange illness dies and passengers are rapidly becoming infected; these two strangers must find a way to stop these undead creatures from taking over the ship.
The trip home from England to America becomes hectic for the Lambert family when they overhear startling rumors from their second class stateroom. People are dying, and the dead are taking anyone they can sink their teeth into with them. Will their family make it to their destination or will they be caught in the rising tide of infection that intends to leave no living being behind?
1) As a female horror writer what do you bring to the table in terms of what of you write?
I bring a new look at moms and zombies and just zombies in general. I believe a lot of writers in the horror genre use weak or useless women in their stories. Whereas moms are fierce and protective no matter what happens or how scary it is.
2) Do you think female authors are underrepresented in the horror genre?
Absolutely. In my sub-genre there are only a handful of authors that write about zombies-post apocalyptic worlds, although women are working their way into the genre.
3) Tell us about your book(s)
I wrote Infected Waters which is about the Titanic and a twist...zombies.
Then there is my Against series with the first in the series Moms Against Zombies. I have had several people tell me it's a different approach to zombies and how the world might look if they were real. The next book Military Against Zombies should be out this spring and the continuing journey of the families as the zombies continue to grow.
4) Why is horror writing important to you?
Honestly, I didn't know when I started that the books I'm writing were even considered horror, but now I would say it's the story I have to tell at the moment no matter what genre it is.
5) Is the future of horror female?
No, I think both male and female writers have something to offer the horror genre.
