Abstract:

"In recent years, author Rick Yancey has taken his young adult fans, especially boys, on many heart-pounding, page-turning adventures. From his Monstrumologist series, in which a doctor and his young apprentice hunt horrifying monsters, to his novel The 5th Wave, in which Earth is torn apart by alien invasion, his gripping fiction is not for the fainthearted. This engaging biography traces Yancey's varied experiences and inspirations on the road to publishing success, including working as a theater critic, as a farmhand, and even as an IRS tax collector. A timeline, fact sheets, and critical reviews add further detail to the well-researched, lively text"--Provided by the publisher.
