About Julianne Snow

Julianne Snow grew up with three brothers in the Canadian countryside. She developed an ability to escape into the "imaginations of others" through an avid love of reading.  Although she loves  horror and crime fiction, she's also drawn to science fiction and fantasy novels. She says that she's been training for the zombie apocalypse since she was six years old.

Here's how she explains it:
"While classically trained in all of the ways to defend herself, she took up writing in order to process the desire she now covets; to bestow a second and final death upon the Undead."
Ms. Snow maintains an active website at Days with the Undead.  On it, she  regularly publishes thoughtful interviews, a feature which she calls "Chewing Braaiiinns." She also has "The Journal" posted there, a serial version (or companion to) Days with the Undead.

In the spring of 2012, Julianne Snow completed a blog tour with over 25 different guest posts on blogs all around the web. These posts cover everything from her love of post-apocalyptic literature to the best strategies for creating a credible zombie.

What Makes Julianne Snow Unique?

I think Julianne Snow has a rare compassion for the undead.  She chose to do part of her author flash from the perspective of the zombie. When she sent it to me, she mentioned that few people write from the zombie's point of view. Then, I  ran across this description from one of the early parts of Days with the Undead:
"It’s a sad thing, coming face to face with the Undead. While we realize that they are just monsters now, they were once people. People like you and me. People that have loved and lost."
Maybe that perspective comes from her ability to immerse herself in the "other worlds" of books. I'm intrigued by the way she describes her experience of reading when she was young:
"My favourite place was the library – once you got over the threshold, you could feel the vibrations of other worlds. Since we so rarely travelled farther than we had to, those worlds were my escape. I thrived in Middle Earth and helped to find the Wizard behind the curtain in the Emerald City. I hide under the covers after reading King, and sat at the round table with the ladies of Avalon. I learned a lot of literary lessons in those pages."
Ms. Snow also does cross-stitch. Maybe I should have mentioned that first. Cross-stitch and the zombie apocalypse. That makes for a unique combination.
