About the Author
After a break from writing to attend puberty, and to eventually sell sixpacks of Molson Canadian to his misnamed crush, Moosehead Girl, Reganreturned to the craft with reckless abandon and a gallon jug of iced tea with just a smattering of extremely cheap rum.
Regan is now the author of the After The Fires Went Out series (with only one mention -- so far -- of zombie erections) and the slightly less controversial Persephone series (which, while appropriate for a YA audience, is still more likely to have actual zombie erections at some point). Regan hopes to one day write a novel set on Marswhile sitting in his boxer shorts on the actual Red Planet, andeverything that comes before that is really just his way of saving upfor the one-way trip.
Though Regan has been shafted by residencyrequirements in his pursuit of the MacArthur genius grant, his currentfiction is considered to be of high caliber, reflecting a markedimprovement in style and grammar from the aforementioned thing with thehamster. It also has far fewer graphic scenes of pound puppy plusheshaving sex in the back of a shoebox with paper wheels.
What does Regan have to say about Regan?
"I recently passed up the chance to hassle Samuel L. Jackson."
"I've always wanted to change my name to something boring, like Hugh Howey."
"I know how to cook six things. None of them are oatmeal."
"I write stories that are weird, a little dark, and definitelyinappropriate for my children. It could be tough to keep that going when they get to be as old and weird as I am today."
"Oh... and my dog is in love with me... like... in a disturbing way."
For a more in-depth tour of Regan's unresolved childhood issues, be sure to read one of his stories.

This book was a new and refreshing take on dystopian fiction and Zombies with lots of comedy mixed in its. I would rate it as worth a read as well as the other books in this series for a fast action packed at times funny read.
Much of the dialogue is very funny, though a small amount of it was surprisingly off-putting (the conversations about the hangers and small children with guns were not funny to me). I liked that the story had its serious moments. The way that different kinds of people reacted to the infected felt genuine as well.
The main character seemed fairly realistic as an intelligent, somewhat insecure teenage girl. One of the supporting characters was very entertaining and endearing.
I thought the author's take on zombies was interesting, and the explanation of the virus that caused it was logical in a slightly futuristic kind of way. The last part of the book felt a little disjointed, and I struggled at times to follow what was happening. There are loose ends left at the end of the book.
I would suggest that any parent looking over this book for their teen focus on the second half of the book. Most of the more disturbing things happen there.
Some people will love this book, some really won't. It all comes down to personal choice. If you would feel okay watching something like the edited version of The Walking Dead, this probably won't be a problem for you.
Persephone doesn't disappoint and I really liked the realistic technological aspects the author brings to his books. My only thought was I wasn't the biggest fan on how the zombies evolved thru the book, but that could be that I'm just not a zombie person.
