About Robert Decoteau

I was born in 1974 in Bremerton, Washington. I moved to Bellingham, Washington at the age of four and have been here ever since.
I love living in the Pacific Northwest about two months out of the year. The other ten months it rains.
Constant rain gives me plenty of time to read and write. While I'm hooked on writing horror right now, I enjoy many other genres.
My favorite author is Robin Hobb, who also lives in the northwest. She is the award winning Fantasy author of Assassin's Apprentice and several sequels.
I have one son. I named him Chance. He is currently six going on fifteen. We are both currently enrolled in school, but I am a few grades ahead of him.

Review by: Mia Darien on Sep. 26, 2011 :
I read this book after reading the three Primrose Court short stories and I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed those stories, although I kind of wish they had been more connected to this story other than just sharing the world but both those three and this one were very good.

The main character I found to be very realistic and I liked the ending. My only real complaint is that it could have used a more thorough editing. It jumped tenses several times and had several noticeable spelling/word use/grammatical mistakes that were enough to draw me out of the story at times. And certain pop culture references will not be lasting, but I can understand their use.

On the whole, however, this was an engaging and gripping read that I would recommend to any friends who like zombie fiction, and can handle the grossness that is common to the genre. I'd give it a shout out that fans of the movie 'Shaun of the Dead' will find a treat in this. Unless they are looking for lunatic Brits. It doesn't have any of those.

Review by: Emma Hinks on Sep. 05, 2011 : (no rating)
This book was like a breath of fresh air. I have been waiting so long for a zombie book that actually has a happy ending. The characters are so well rounded and you instantly befriend them and worry for them and cross your fingers when they come across trouble. Robert is an excellent writer and story teller and i have very quickly become one of his avid and loyal readers.
