Zombie Spring's Trooper Tyree is the first sequel to Zombie Spring published in 2012. This sequel continues the perilous adventures of Trooper Tyree and Hettie Younger from the first book's Chapter XII: First Blood LA. In that chapter, two veteran infantrymen were cut off from their unit and trapped in a Motel 6 by a large number of Undead. This was shortly before the H-Bomb was dropped on San Diego and the devastating mega earthquake that followed. These two soldiers, Trooper Tyree and Hettie Younger must survive the ravenous hunger of the Undead and live through the firestorm of man-made and natural disasters that completely destroy LA, while gathering together small bands of trapped infantrymen to rescue some school children just back from a field trip. ZSTT also continues the story of Lieutenant Shasta Maddy and her surviving gun crews that were forced to flee from Fire Base Indio in ZS Chapter XIV, Saga: The Song of Roland. You will discover a little bit more about the crooked politician Ben Arnold and his crusade against Trooper Tyree and his eventual election to the US Senate. Chris, Cowboy Buck Smiley Bellew, General Cartwright Jones, Albie Lincoln and Admiral Dewey round out this cast of interesting characters from the first book. There are many new and interesting characters introduced to ZSTT such as the elite soldiers Bluto, Chopper, Jericho, China and Pig Pen who will appear again in the second and final sequel due out in 2013. The final sequel will be called Zombie Spring's Roland Thomas Type IV, and it will feature Colonel Roland Thomas who was infected and killed in book one. Thomas becomes a Zombie trooper, but one with special abilities: A first of his kind and a game changer in the war against the Dead.
To help people decide whether or not they might enjoy this book, I offer a profiler. I’ve never seen it done before on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Here goes! ZS’s Trooper Tyree is a Zombie Lite version of the Zombie genre. Yes, it has plenty of gore and huge battles, but much of it is meant to be funny, and much of it is meant to teach a little history. It is not a dour world-view of what would happen. The content is centered around happy, upbeat young people, who think they can win out against all odds and maybe make a better life for themselves. If you like happy stories with a little romance interspersed with lots of military blood and guts, then you’re in the right place. So who might or might not enjoy this book? Fans of the movie, The Road, or the TV series, Walking Dead, might consider looking elsewhere for their entertainment because those shows are sad with a world view that all is lost and nothing will ever be the same again. If you liked Zombieland with Woody Harrelson, Abraham Lincoln vs. the Zombies, or Warm Bodies then you are more likely to have a nice evening pouring through these pages. Bruce Campbell, Woody Harrelson, and Brendan Fraser could be characters in this book. Matt Damon, Christian Bale, and Viggo Mortenson are great actors, but I think they’d pass on an offer to star in my series. For youngsters: Mild cursing, but no foul language or nudity. Bloody death and combat situations.
heroes. Thank you for using sense in having your characters use armor to
protect themselves. Too many movies and tales ignore this. Love Chris's crazy
ideas. Wonder if he will use medieval weaponry too. A line of halberd armed
troops in tight quarters would mince zombies quite well. Buck's ideas are so
off the wall and surprising. I wish we had more Buck's in the world. Chief
Meet the Author
I'm a grandpa writing Zombie stories for my grown up children and now my grandchildren. I had fun using my own name in the story as well as every member of my family including our two dogs Shinpuu and Betty Boop. I call my books heirloom books because they are meant to give a certain amount of immortality to all my loved ones, while at the same time, no one has to dust an e-book ever. I chose the Zombie genre because Zombies are exciting, and I have no doubt that my grandchildren and my future great grandchildren will have fun reading about their grandpa, grandma, parents, and even themselves as they battle the Undead across our country. Zombie Spring, the first book was written more for my family than the public. Trooper Tyree was written almost exclusively for the public. You need to read the first book to find out where the series is going because all sequels derive from unfinished business in Zombie Spring.

Better than the first one. I loved the characters of Chris, Buck, and Trooper. I like the simplicity, common sense, and imagination the character's have. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and had a smile on my face when I finished it. I would love another book in this series.
