About the Author

A severe addiction to Post-apocalyptic literature combined with a lifetime of a very rural existence, first in central Maine and now in northern Idaho naturally led to both of Deirdre's novels: The Jade Seed and After the Cure. Deirdre's education in anthropology and peace and conflict studies prompted the central idea for After the Cure: How do people live with each other after doing horrendous things to each other? How do societies put themselves together or continue to exist after terrible wars? What is day to day existence like when such violence exists within living memory? Though fiction can never come close to the reality of living with atrocity, it can help us ask important questions about our world and our treatment of each other. Since living in the woods makes it all too easy to imagine being one of the last people left in the world, After the Cure is only the first novel of several that will take place in a post-apocalyptic, "post-zombie" world.

A very well written book. It held my interest all the way through from beginning to end! The twists and turns in the plot were great, and the question of what it would be like to have once been a zombie was something I never even considered before. But the frantic rush to prevent another appocolypse was what kept me glued to the pages. Would be happy to read more from this writter.

Pleasantly surprised. Enough horror to satisfy zombie fans but enough twists an dc turns to keep you turning pages.

Deirdre Gould's novel, After the Cure, is a new and creative take on the Zombie Apocalypse. I loved reading this book and I can't wait to read the others in the series!

It kept my attention and was written fairly well. I am not a zombie lover of movies or books. The story was more in depth regarding the characters and not the gore. I was pleasantly surprised.

A great read, though I hope another one is written, due to the ending. Hard to put down!

Overall the story is creative and entertaining. Some of the romance is a little over the top, but it’s not the center of the story. Great read.

Great read! I haven’t enjoyed a book like this one this year. It was a fast read and I had to remind myself to close the book and get some sleep.

After reading so many books of the same genre it is hard to be surprised. This book put a new spin on overwritten topic. I couldn't put it down. Thanks for the great read!

a very fast paced and interesting sci fi type of story. A tad weird and violent at times, but nontheless a good read
