Navarro, Yvonne

(1957-    ) US author, married to Weston Ochse; her work is mostly fantasy and urban fantasy (in its twenty-first century sense as a term describing supernatural fictions set in Cities with romantic plots often involving Vampires, Werewolves and/or Zombies, but normally discounting sf-like rationalizations). She began publishing work of this sort of interest with "Surprise Fall" in the magazine The Horror Show for Spring 1984; her first novel, Afterage (1993; exp as coll 2003) is horror, as is most of her other work, including Tie titles done for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, novelizations of films including Species (1995) and Species II (1998), series and singletons. Of interest as Horror in SF, the short Rogue Planet sequence, comprising Final Impact (1997) and Red Shadows (1998), features some inimical supernatural creatures who roam an Earth threatened and then, after fragments of a mystery planet called Millennium have hit the planet, devastated by this Disaster; the second volume focuses on the aftermath period: the planet has stopped rotating, and plague threatens.
