More About the Author

I was born in the Pacific Northwest and have lived here all my life. After 36 years of wandering aimlessly I decided that what I really want to do is write. While writing has become my passion, putting food on my family's table is a must so
I have returned to school to chase a degree in business. At my age it is better to seek a desk job than to continue with the labor that I was accustomed to. I juggle writing, school, and raising my six year old boy. Eventually I hope to become a full time writer, but dreams don't pay the bills.
I cut my teeth in the zombie genre, so to speak. I have found that most zombie stories are really just stories about people. I plan to branch out a little eventually, work my way into some mainstream horror, but zombies are close to my heart, if not my brain.

I read all three of the Primrose Court short stories in one setting, going from 502 to 305 to 205. I don't think it matters what order you read them in, but I have to implore anyone who loves to watch good character development to read all three.

Robert DeCoteau seems to have put much thought and work into the development of "Tommy," a young druggie stuck at home with his ailing mother, who seems to have some reality issues. That's the least of his problems today, however.

I liked that these stories all tied into one another but each stood alone, as well.

For a Kindle book, this was relatively error free.

Looks like I'll have to buy Don of the Dead to get more of DeCoteau's zombie writing because when I was finished reading these books, I really just wanted more.

This guy can write! This is my third Primrose Court short that I've reviewed and there's not much else I can say. Just read these shorts and then go read his other books. Serious writing abilities!!

As this is my second review of one of Robert DeCoteau's short/parallel stories related to his Don of the Living Dead book, I really want to reiterate that I generally abhor short stories with a fiery, stinging passion.

The concept of the "Zombie Tales" books, perspectives (in separate novellas) of different residents of an apartment building set in the Don world during an impending zombpocalypse was such a novel (heh, novel, I made a joke!) concept, that I overlooked my general dislike and decided to take a chance.

Not only was this very well written (some minor editing complaints, though), but it was surprisingly well done in so few pages.

Robert DeCoteau has written his main character, Tommy, superbly well in such a small space. Tommy is a loser, slacker, pothead, stuck taking care of his elderly mother, who (in her head) is living in the past. There's not a lot of good going on in Tommy's life, but he's just trying to muddle through.

So, of course, everything in his life WOULD go wrong on the same day as the onset of a zombie apocalypse...

I had to keep rechecking that this was, indeed, a zombie story, as there's no sign of them for at least 40% of the story.

The main focus of the story isn't actually the zombies at all, but rather the MC, who is having a very bad day, even before the zombies arrive. This would usually put me off a 'zombie' work, but the author does such a good job bringing readers into the MC's personal life that I didn't mind as much as I might have with other works.

The writing is very well done, and the MC's struggles to deal with his mentally ill mother, employment and woman trouble were all realistically written. I especially enjoyed a hysterical exchange between the MC and a police officer that had a lot of humor in it.

Worth the read if you can keep in mind that the zombies aren't actually the focus here, though they do eventually show up.

*** CONTAINS NO SPOILERS!!! ***

Featured in this edition of Primrose Court, Tommy from Apartment 502, is having a day that quickly evolves from bad to worse. Soon after arriving home from work, he finds himself contending with his mother, girlfriend, AND drug dealer. Nothing seems to be going his way, and Tommy just wants to grab a quick (and quiet) smoke outside. How could things get any worse in the time it takes to relax with a cigarette or two?

●●●Look for the other two short-stories by Robert DeCoteau about Primrose Court (Apartments 205 and 305)●●●

●●●Also check out "Don of the Dead" by Robert DeCoteau, the book on which these short-stories are based●●●

I read this story last, it was good. The main character's back-story was a bit more believable than his current reality. He had things more together than any (similar) addict I've ever met. But it certainly was an interesting angle that the main character got to view the zombie apocalypse from.

Unlike the other two short stories in this series, I didn't notice any exceptional editing/grammar mistakes, so that was an improvement. The excerpt was the same as in the other two so, I'm not going to go into detail about it here.

I like these stories. They are little glimpses into the lives of people whose lives are connected by the building they live in. The one complaint I have is the editing... the wrong words are used in several places. For example, gate is used to talk about someone's manner of walking instead of gait. Other than little things like that, the stories are great!

I love all of the little snapshots this author has written about the people in the apartment building. I don't recall if there is a recommended read order but it's fun to notice how the stories connect and overlap. Each main character is wonderfully developed in their own story and pop up neatly in the other stories.
