Editorial Reviews

Review

"The author of this book, magically takes you to moments in his youth painted against the backdrop of a small, rural town in Maine. Tenderly, and with a good bit of humor, he reflects on the past and how it has shaped his present. Perhaps it is when we look back that we understand ourselves better - I know I enjoyed the stories in this book and the memories of my own youth it triggered. While the author grew up in rural Maine, anyone who grew up in the 1980s & 1990s will relate to Jeremy Flagg's childhood memories and remember their own." - Amazon Customer

About the Author

It started with single comic book. My mother was determined to make a reader out of me. Shunning traditional literature at a young age, my mother placed X-Men Classic #69 in my lap and for the first time I was exposed to the phrases, "Mutants," "BAMF," and "SNIKT." From that moment on, I imagined my enrollment at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters at 1407 Graymalkin Lane.

By middle school I was devouring fantasy and science fiction faster than I could check them out of the library. However, my first love remained comic books. I began writing my own comics with my best friend, and by the end of my eighth grade year, I had written over a hundred issues of the superhero series that would eventually become Children of Nostradamus. Meanwhile, I spent my Tuesday's at the grocery store, rummaging the racks, reading any comic put on the shelf.

Working as a high school teacher provided me with an uncanny amount of great dialogue. The antics of teenagers in a suburban setting became the background of my first published book, Suburban Zombie High. Having started working at a second suburban school, the sequel, Suburban Zombie High: The Reunion was published.

I became known as a geek before it was a trend. During college Jeremy would be shortened to Remy as friends discovered my goal of reading every X-Men comic. Being able to explain the many relationships of Scott Summers and his multi-dimensional children became a badge of honor.

It wasn't until 2006 that I participated in my first NaNoWriMo writing an epic science fiction novel. Later I would use the opportunity to write Suburban Zombie High and my first draft of Children of Nostradamus. I also belong the New England Horror Writer's Association where I'm known as the sarcastic zombie author. I also partake in a weekly writing group called the Metrowest Writers where people are flabbergasted by my love of comics and scifi.
