Meet the Author

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.

    A new depth to the zombie genre

    This story is just a taste of what the author brings in his full length novel Don of the Living Dead. In this episode you get to meet Theodore Granger a self imposed recluse that has finally decided to venture out into the world again after a decade of exile. The character portrayal is interesting and the psychological aspect of the story is well done.

    Threasa's Review

    Really enjoyed the author's details of the main character's memories. You really feel for the guy! It takes a nit to get to the zombies but I enjoyed the sloww build up and how the author intwined all the stories about the apartment tenents together but let them each stand alone in their own stories. Great short story!

    Short but enjoyable, read all of the short stories in series to get a true feeling of what is going on the day the world goes to hell. Remember - just because you are paranoid, does not mean they aren't watching you - read this one last!

    Dark Zombie Humor

    This is part one of three stories that involves people in an apartment complex on the day zombies arrive.

    This first story is a humorous story of a guy who had locked himself away from the world for ten years and thanks to a shrink chose today to go a block down the street for a cup of coffee. Unfortunately it was a bad day.

    Also in this book is a few sample chapters of the author's other book Don Of The Dead.

    Will review the other 2 stories shortly.

    I Also Recommend:

    Very interesting Character Study

    I read Don of the Living Dead before I got my hands on any of the short stories. I was a bit worried about reading them out of order, but was surprised and elated to find that it doesn't matter what order you read them in. Each of the Zombie Tales is connected to the others as well as the novel, but each is a stand alone story as well. This story involves Theodore Granger, an agoraphobic man who is a bit eccentric. At first he seems over the top off his rocker, but as his story unfold you begin to see who he is and why he does the things he does. I love that all of Mr. Decoteau's stories are about people and their own unique struggles with the world. He creates characters that somehow weasel their way into your heart whether you like it or not.
