Artist Profile for Chirstine Brunson:
For most of her life, Christine Brunson has been enjoying comic books. The characters, stories, and artwork have always enchanted her. Ever since she was exposed to the world of comic books, the desire to make her own has always been with her but she didn’t start working on that dream until recent years. She made her debut as co-creator, writer, and colorist for the web comic Undead Norm. When not working on Undead Norm, she has been writing scripts for a few other stories as well as doing freelance color jobs. When Anthony approached her about coloring the pages for Disco Frankenstein, she couldn’t resist it! Christine hopes to continue making great comics for people to enjoy for many years to come!

Author profile for Marie F Crow
Marie F Crow is the author of the post-apocalyptic series, The Risen. She 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 has to 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.
