His talent is undeniable.” ––Janel Spiegel, from Amazon
“I had bought the book The Beasts and The Walking Dead for one if my son’s who is a fan of all things zombie. I usually am not a fan of the same books but like to have a general idea of what they are reading. After reading the first few pages, I was hooked. It is such a great idea to develop personalities for the characters as opposed to the usual ” zombie” book. I read it in two nights. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel to this superbly written book.” –KTompkins
