Corey Redekop was born and raised in Thompson MB, then left the north to become an actor, a waiter, a tree planter, a world traveler, a lawyer, a barista, a broadcaster, and a film editor. During a stint back in Thompson as the director of the Thompson Public Library, he published his first novel, Shelf Monkey, a satiric and savage comedy about the contemporary book world. His new title, Husk (ECW), is a darkly funny book about a newly-minted zombie’s attempts to balance family, career, and cannibalism. Redekop makes his living as a writer, librarian, and publicist. He lives in Fredericton NB.
