The post-apocalypse thriller is becoming a genre in its own right. Literary authors like Cormac McCarthy have produced books of this type, and I can recall examples from the past 50 years. I spoke with Alex Adams about White Horse, the first in a projected trilogy about life on earth after a virus kills 90% of the world’s population.

The protagonist is Zoe, a young woman who survived the plague, and the depredations of some of the unsavory humans left behind. Now she is pregnant and searching for her baby’s father, and a safe place. Here is a brief bio from Alex’s website: Alex Adams was born in New Zealand, raised in Greece and Australia, and currently lives in Oregon–which is a whole lot like New Zealand, minus those freaky-looking wetas. Her debut novel, White Horse (Emily Bestler Books/Atria) hits shelves April 17, 2012. Her fingers are crossed that the world won’t end before then.
