She started writing fiction when she wanted to capture the spirit of her kids in that brief and turbulent time between childhood and adulthood - their tween and teen years. The main characters in Cruise of the Undead draw heavily from the personalities of her sons, and various plot elements were inspired by experiences on happy, but zombie-free, family cruises.

Cruise of the Undead

Authored by Laura A Hansen

Fifteen-year-old Charlie is P.O.’ed that his parents have wasted a perfectly good Christmas break by forcing him on a cruise with a bunch of oldies. But the old people are a piece of cake compared to the dead people.

A gruesome attack at the Death by Chocolate Buffet convinces Charlie that the unimaginable is really happening: the recently dead are walking the ship. With the adults in denial, Charlie, his hip hop brother Jack, and their new friend Savannah must forge a zombie-fighting alliance.

This fast-paced adventure pits the teens against the zombie crew in a terrifying and hilarious struggle to save the passengers from an ugly undeath.
