"…This isn't the boxcar children covered with a veneer of wholesomeness. These street kids know how to survive on the streets, and it isn't always pretty… heart-stopping and horrific…." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"Where do I even start? I guess here: it's refreshing to finally read a disease-centred apocalyptic story that feels real… cannot wait to see what happens next…." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
If you like anything (or most things) with quickly-spreading viruses, zombies, realistic teenaged characters, learning how homeless kids get by on the street, action, and strong loyalty…an intriguing, cannot-put-it-down tale…." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"The first book left me hungry for the next one…" ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR
Q - What makes the Zombies Are Human (formerly Feast of Weeds) series special? An epidemic ravaging the human population. A world spiraling into chaos. People doing whatever it takes to survive. I've always been drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre and thought about end-of-the-world books I've loved--Stephen King's The Stand, Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower. But also recent stories like The Girl With All the Gifts, The Passage, and even Stranger Things. Big epidemics that reinvent the world are so thrilling. I also love getting into the science, like genetic engineering, that make a situation plausible. Zombies Are Human gives you some of that classic Walking Dead zombie fare, but...without giving too much away...I guarantee you've never read a zombie series like Zombies Are Human before.
My cast of characters are teenagers, but plenty of adults write to say they love the series too. No matter what your age, the Zombies Are Human series is designed to keep you furiously turning those pages.
Q - What order should I read the books in? I think the complete series would be most enjoyable in the following sequence:
Germination (prequel short novel), Contamination, Infestation, Eradication
Q - Why should readers give these books a try? The prequel hit #5 on the New York Times and #8 on the USA Today bestseller lists. I've gotten tons of emails from readers raving over Zombies Are Human (stay-up-all-night-even-with-work-the-next-day kind of love). But more than that, as a reader myself, I am always looking for the next Stranger Things, The Passage, The Girl With All The Gifts. THAT'S the kind of story I hope you'll find in Zombies Are Human. Smart. Dangerous. Gritty. With rip-your-heart-out intensity (literally and figuratively in some cases).
