About the author

Jeremy Flagg

<p>It started with single comic book. Jeremy&rsquo;s&nbsp;mother was determined to make a reader out of him. Shunning traditional literature at a young age, his&nbsp;mother placed X-Men Classic #69 in his&nbsp;lap and for the first time he was exposed to the phrases, &ldquo;Mutants,&rdquo; &ldquo;BAMF,&rdquo; and &ldquo;SNIKT.&rdquo; From that moment on, he imagined his&nbsp;enrollment at Xavier&rsquo;s School for Gifted Youngsters at 1407 Graymalkin Lane.</p><p>By middle&nbsp;school he devoured fantasy and science fiction faster than he could check them out of the library. However, his&nbsp;first love remained comic books. He began writing his&nbsp;own comics with his&nbsp;best friend, and by the end of their&nbsp;eighth grade year, they had written over a hundred issues of&nbsp;the superhero series that would eventually become Children of Nostradamus. Meanwhile, he spent his&nbsp;Tuesday&rsquo;s at the grocery store, rummaging the racks, reading any comic put on the shelf.</p><p>Working as a high school teacher provided him&nbsp;with an uncanny amount of great dialogue. The antics of teenagers in a suburban setting became the background of his&nbsp;first published book, Suburban Zombie High. Having started working at a second suburban school, the sequel, Suburban Zombie High: The Reunion was published.</p><p>Jeremy became known as a geek before it was a trend. During college Jeremy would be shortened to Remy&nbsp;as friends discovered his&nbsp;goal of reading every X-Men comic. Being able to explain the many relationships of Scott Summers and his multi-dimensional children became a badge of honor.</p><p>Jeremy came to writing late in his&nbsp;professional career. For a short period he majored in Creative Writing but eventually turned to Graphic Design for a&nbsp;career. It wasn&rsquo;t until 2006 that he participated in his&nbsp;firstNaNoWriMo,&nbsp;writing an epic science fiction novel. Later he would use the opportunity to write Suburban Zombie High and his&nbsp;first draft of Children of Nostradamus.&nbsp;He&nbsp;belongs the New England Horror Writer&rsquo;s Association and&nbsp;partakes in a weekly writing group called the Metrowest Writers where people are flabbergasted by his&nbsp;love of comics and scifi.</p>
