Zombie Gang: Regenerated Earth tells a different kind of apocalyptic zombie story. Some returned as Deadheads, who are like predatory flesh-eating zombies.
Another group of beings rises from the dead. Those beings are self-aware and they have retained some of their once held human traits. A combination of human and zombie, they are called Zumans.
Zombie Gang: Regenerated Earth follows a teenage gang of Zumans as they struggle to balance their undead existence with their survival against Deadheads and other Zuman survivors, many of whom are dangerous and predatory themselves. At every turn, unspeakable horrors face them as the structures of society collapses all around them.
Led by 17-year old Enrico, the most human-like of the undead gang, he must lead the tattered remnants of society in the fight against the Deadhead uprising.
It is a war of undead versus the undead.
Oh, the Zumanity!
A teen horror novel that is disgusting enough to make the hairs on your neck stand up, but PG enough to keep the adults off your back.

How did you decide to create a trailer and what was your experience?
I used stock footage of zombie walking, manipulating the colour (very basic) using imovie. The music is from ccmixter. The cover of Zombie Gang: Regenerated Earth was designed by Mistress Rae’s Decadent Designs.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My first memories of the zombie genre included countless nights in my grandmother’s room, my safe haven, as I knew that she would protect me from all the flesh-eating zombies. Oh the phone calls my mom received from angry parents when I decided to screen Dawn of the Dead instead of The Empire Strikes Back at my 10th birthday party.
As a kid I was petrified of zombies. Having been taught that the only way to tackle a fear is to face it, head on, I delved into the Zombie genre. Fascinated by Ramero, Fulci, Raimi, Avati, Tourneur, Grau, O’Bannan (my degree is in film), I became an expert in the field of zombiness. I drew on this vast body of knowledge when writing Zombie Gang: Regenerated Earth (Book 1).

He wishes his writer’s voice would give him a break every now and then, but, oh, who is he kidding – he loves it!
Many of his story ideas are derived from his obsession with strange films and documentaries. His biggest inspiration however, is his students. Stranges has been an elementary school teacher for eight years and loves using his storytelling ability to motivate in the classroom.
