~About the Author~


Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, M. Lauryl now resides there with her husband and three young sons. She retired from her career as a registered nurse in 2013 to focus on writing full time. She has been a fan of the horror genre since she was a very young child. It began in the basement of her family home, where she would sneak horror movies in the middle of the night. Movies quickly turned to books and hours of reading. Now an adult, her cravings for “more” led her to write her own tales of terror. M. Lauryl’s all time favorite creature that goes bump in the night is the zombie.

The author takes an unconventional approach to weaving apocalyptic tales. She tells them as she believes they might realistically play out. That includes flawed characters who make some poor decisions, which human instincts may (or may not) kick in, and limited character knowledge about the cause of the apocalypse which in turn leads to limited reader knowledge. She strives to place readers deep within the world of the characters, from smells to tastes to sights to emotions.

    I haven’t read any of these, but I’m super excited to see how they turn out…I think my greatest fear would be the possibility of not being able to get to my kids and grandkids in time…we have a meet up place, but who knows what it will really be like. I just wouldn’t want to be alone and not have them and my husband….nightmare

  • Margo Bond Collins

    Love the reading!! I think my greatest fear would be trying to keep my daughter safe. . .

  • Jeremy Hunt

    Being a kidney transplant patient and having other medical issues, my biggest fear would be finding medicine.

  • Erin F

    Definitely keeping friends and family and my dog! Safe. I don’t know if I’d have the skills to survive. Thanks for sharing!

  • Jami Broveak

    Keeping my family safe from the scum of the earth that will rise to the top.

  • Laura R.

    Keeping my family safe is always the 1st Priority.

  • Trinitee D

    Keeping my kids safe.

  • Tia

    just surviving

  • Danni Wallace Jones

    I’d say keeping my family safe. My mom has juvenile diabetes and has been insulin dependant since age 21. I know that the point where she is no longer able to find insulin is going to be slow and agonizing. We aren’t “preppers” for an end of the world scenario, but bc of medical conditions in those we care about, we do try to prepare for the unexpected with as much caution as possible.

  • Lori Hopkins

    keeping my family safe. My grandmother is 83, and my aunts and uncle are in their 60’s now, and not in the best of health. They all take meds that help them and its scary to think about finding meds, and when they run out, what would we do? Plus feeding them, making sure they are as safe and comfortable as possible. They would be the most important to me, plus my little cousin, who is turning 12 this week. To think of him facing a zombie is frightening!

      BTW, I love this series, but have only read the first 3. Would LOVE physical copies of the books!

  • Ariel Mathis

    Keeping my kids safe is first. Second finding food, and third I’d hit up a Home Depot and get all the materials we would need to build us a treehouse in woods.

  • Worrying about my family would be the worst part of it by far. What if we’re separated when whatever happens happens etc.

  • Surviving, being able to find supplies and stay safe.

  • heathermanning

    keeping my family, especially the kiddos and animals safe/fed would be my biggest worry.

  • Susan Pigott

    The thing that scares me the most…for anything to happen to me where I won’t be able to protect and take care of my grand-daughter. That is why I try to teach her about edible plants and other survival tips.

  • Nastasia Alexandria Nazar

    Kids/family/friends safety!

  • Arwen Shoemaker

    Pretty much all of the above. Haven’t “met” your series yet, but it looks good and I would love to check it out!

  • Lori F

    Safety, food, loss of internet

  • Michelle Willms

    The uncertainty of the world in flux terrifies me.

    dying or possibly starving

  • Belladoll

    Not succeeding in keeping my kids safe. I have an 11 month old, so keeping her soothed would be a challenge. Also a 4 and 6 year old. Yep that’s what I fear the most.
