While on this treacherous trek through this urban landscape, they come across two teenagers, Ricky and Yvette, a brother and sister, forced to fend for themselves after losing their mother at the hands of a zombie. Together they search for an escape out of the city in hopes of discovering a place where they can find safety—assuming one still exists—with the newly reanimated dead lurking around every corner. It is a fight for survival that will test the courage and resiliency of them all, a heart-pounding horror story told through the eyes of a child.
John J. Fero is a contemporary writer of fantasy and horror. He was born October 1, 1981. With the sacred scale of the zodiac, he is a proud Libra. His love affair with writing began at a young age. In his own words, “As far back as I can remember, I always loved to create stories. As a child I would make up stories, some with heroes, others with monsters and ghouls, and my friends and I would act them out in plays for family and friends.” Around the age of thirteen, fate led him to a certain vampire named Lestat. Infatuated with the works of Ann Rice, specifically “Interview with a Vampire,” John began a lifelong fascination with the way words on a page could bring a character or a world to life. So, with his undying artistic temperament, he vies to create his own worlds of fantasy and horror. He is also a self-proclaimed “die hard” sports fan and follower of the vast majority of New York teams: the New York Knicks, Giants, and, of course, the Yankees. He currently resides in New York with his wife and two kids.
