Eight people escape decimated New York. They have only one thing in common: the alcoholic gene. The same genetic quirk that makes alcoholics and addicts susceptible to booze and drugs gives them a mysterious ability to evade detection by the undead.
But one gene in common isn’t enough to unite them. They’re a motley crew: A Botoxed Upper Eastsider; a drug dealer rescued from lockup; a resentful daughter of addicts; an insecure AA guy; a Japanese ex-dope fiend; an addicted Ivy Leaguer; and a Mexican immigrant. Dodging natural and unnatural disasters, drugged lunatics, and the living dead, they struggle to face their personal demons, accept one another, and find a new life. They think they’ve reached the end of their trek when they encounter a settlement that takes A.A. to fundamentalist extremes. They have to make a choice…one they may not survive.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
The zombie theme is a lot of fun and can’t take itself too seriously, but it has to simultaneously suck you in and keep you on the edge of your seat.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write. Enjoy. Let go of the results. (I’m still trying to take that advice.)
A former urban desperado, Michele W. Miller has settled into a “happy, joyous and free” life over the last 20 years. Married to a New York City high school chemistry teacher, mom to ten-year old twins, and black belt in the Jaribu System of Karate, she practices law and lives in Manhattan. THE THIRTEENTH STEP: ZOMBIE RECOVERY was a quarter-finalist selection in the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition.
“Michele Miller has had more lives than a cat, and they’ve made her a writer of passion and substance.” — Lawrence Block, Edgar Award winner & New York Times bestselling author
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love the thrilling post-apocalyptic genre as a setting to deal with larger issues. The story touches on all the fears and challenges of building a new life after one’s old life is destroyed. It confronts issues that concern me, such as the spread of cult-like groups within the 12-step programs and the place of addicts in AA meetings. But none of this excludes a reader who is not in recovery: Some of the characters are merely descendants of addicts and are none too happy to depend for their lives on screw-ups like their parents. Almost everyone’s life has been touched by someone who couldn’t be depended on.
