Interview with the Author

Q – What makes the Feast of Weeds series special?

An epidemic ravaging the human population. A world spiraling into chaos. People doing whatever it takes to survive. I wanted to write something I would love to read. I’ve always been drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre and thought about end-of-the-world books I’ve loved–Stephen King’s The Stand, Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower. But also recent stories like The Girl With All the Gifts, The Passage, and even Stranger Things. I’ve always found stories with big epidemics/events that reinvent the world so thrilling. I also love getting into some of the science, like the genetic engineering, that would make the situations plausible.

Feast of Weeds gives you some of that classic Walking Dead zombie fare, but…without giving too much away…I guarantee you’ve never read a zombie series like Feast of Weeds before.

Even though my cast of characters are teenagers I’ve definitely had plenty of adults write me about how much they’ve enjoyed the series. I think Feast of Weeds hits the sweet spot of older Young Adult that will appeal to plenty of adults too.

No matter what your age, the Feast of Weeds series is designed to keep you furiously turning those pages.

Q – What order should I read the books in?

I think the complete series would be most enjoyable in the following sequence:
–Germination (prequel short novel)


Q – Why should readers give these books a try?

The prequel hit #5 on the New York Times and #8 on the USA Today bestseller lists. I’ve gotten tons of emails from readers letting me know how much they loved Feast of Weeds (stay-up-all-night-even-with-work-the-next-day love). But more than that, as a reader myself, I am always looking for the next Stranger Things, The Passage, The Girl With All The Gifts. THAT’S the kind of story I hope you’ll find in Feast of Weeds. Smart. Dangerous. Gritty. With rip-your-heart-out intensity (literally and figuratively in some cases).

Feast of Weeds is a fast, dark apocalyptic ride. Just remember…nothing is what it seems.
