About this author

Sean Cummings is a fantasy author with a penchant for writing quirky, humorous and dark novels featuring characters that are larger than life. His debut was the gritty urban fantasy SHADE FRIGHT published in 2010. He followed up later in the year with the sequel FUNERAL PALLOR. His urban fantasy/superhero thriller UNSEEN WORLD was published in 2011.

2012 saw the publication of Sean’s first urban fantasy for young adults. POLTERGEEKS is a rollicking story about teen witch Julie Richards, her dorky boyfriend and race against time to save her mother’s life. The first sequel, STUDENT BODIES hit bookstores in September 2013.

Sean's newest book is THE NORTH. A post-apocalyptic zombie thriller for teens. It will be released in October 2014.

My new book THE NORTH has only been out now for just shy of two months but the sales haven’t been as strong as I’d hoped. (About 500 copies vs more than 1200 for my still selling very strongly MARSHALL CONRAD in the same time frame).

The few reviews I’ve received have all suggested that readers liked the story very much (although some aren’t crazy there are to be two more books), so I was sc...

The North by Sean Cummings
"Really tactical look at the zompoc. I really enjoyed it too becuase I live in the area in which it was based, and it's really well described. The characters are heartbreaking, mess up, and ARE messed up."

Student Bodies by Sean Cummings
"Great follow-up to Poltergeeks: more sass, more action, more magic!

I greatly enjoyed Poltergeeks, the first in this series and would absolutely recommend this title if you did too. If you haven’t read it yet, stop here – this review has spoilers..." Read more of this review »
