Laura A. Hansen is a noted scientist and author of the Zombies in Paradise series of young adult thrillers. Set in exotic locales, these books follow brothers Charlie and Jack as they work together to reunite their family and stop a zombie outbreak. What makes the Zombies in Paradise books different from any others is their fully-fleshed characters and intelligent writing in a family-friendly package, a rare combination in zombie literature. The series is appealing to adults, yet still appropriate for ten to fifteen year-olds.

Praise for Zombies in Paradise books:

This third installment of the Zombies in Paradise series is every bit as exciting as the first two! Hansen's style makes for a fast-paced adventure that keeps the reader on their toes. -- Kathy Rygg at Amazon

As a middle school teacher, I would highly recommend this series of books to engage reluctant readers. The scenes are entertaining and suspenseful throughout. -- stephoney at Amazon

Like an avalanche of zombie attacks, readers will fall victim to [Avalanche of the Undead's] short chapter length, fast pacing, and the story line’s constant action. -- John K. at Amazon

Cruise of the Undead was middle grade friendly, romantic enough to be interesting, and fast-paced enough to keep me up late to finish in one sitting. ... A MUST READ for middle grade teachers looking to add unique zombie novel with male perspective! -- Busy BookBlogger at Reviews of Young Adult Literature
