Andy Zach was born Anastasius Zacharias, in Greece. His parents were both zombies. Growing up, he loved animals of all kinds. After moving to the United States as a child, in high school, he won a science fair by bringing toads back from suspended animation. Before turning to fiction, Andy published his Ph.D. thesis "Methods of Revivification for Various Species of the Kingdom Animalia" in the prestigious JAPM, Journal of Paranormal Medicine. Andy, in addition to being the foremost expert on paranormal animals, enjoys breeding phoenixes. He lives in Illinois with his five phoenixes.
With his first book, ‘Zombie Turkeys’ Andy blazed new ground in paranormal humor. The second book in his Life After Life Chronicles, ‘My Undead Mother-in-law’ expands the zombie plague from turkeys to humans, with hilarious results.

Not content to keep in zombies earthbound, Andy puts them afloat in his third book, ‘Paranormal Privateers’.
