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.

Chock full of action, and just enough back story to want to know more. If you like comic books, superheroes, or fast paced adventures, this is a book for you. It's a fun read even if you've never read a comic, but perhaps enjoy the comic based movies, and / or sci-fi or adventure films. Jeremy Flagg engages his readers by showing us a world that is dark and broken, but he has given us just enough light in the form of hope and wonderfully unique and likeable characters that we want to find out whether all is lost or not. I appreciate the depth of these characters. They are not just good or evil, but as in real life, they are a wonderfully complex mixture. We see the humanity of these characters, what is good about them as well as their flaws. We can relate to them because of this. They may have "super" human abilities, but at their core, they are just like us - human.
I look forward to more adventures with the Children of Nostradamus!
The world is half in ruins. Deviants to the normal course of humanity have emerged, as Nostradamus had once predicted, and they are targeted. The government strains to keep them in check and the ever present question is: should they? New England is nothing more than a scorched remnant left behind from nuclear explosions - the radiation present would poison any normal human. Outlanders are banished here, doomed to live shortened life spans. And the Children, those who show abilities beyond what is considered human, those who have run from authority and containment Facilities, sequester in the ruins as well.
Firstly, I have to say, I was immediately drawn in by the author’s descriptive telling of the super-human powers his characters possess. He didn’t just tell us someone was a telepath, he showed us in a descriptive, suck-you-in kind of way. While reading, I could feel the pull of thoughts and sense the power that surged through the Children of Nostradamus. In this way, this book stood out for me from the superheroes I had read about and seen in neon spandex suits in the past. It was refreshing and engaging and kept me invested and involved as the story unfolded.
The characters are diverse and are pulled together through the course of the novel. I loved the evolution of the Nighthawks and can’t wait to see where this author goes with them next! Definitely check this out!
Jeremy Flagg is a writer to be reckoned with. If you enjoy superhero comics, dystopian SF or just plain old-fashioned good storytelling, you will find Nighthawks an exciting and satisfactory read.
Today it was confirmed- I have kept my job and she also thoroughly enjoyed this book! *
