School’s getting out for the summer, and Zach has finally worked up the courage to ask Katelyn to walk home with him—only to find the Feds parked in his driveway again. His unemployed accountant father is an outspoken critic of the recent default on the crushing national debt, which brings on most of their problems with the law. But his mother is the real complication when it comes to bringing potential girlfriends over to the house. She’s a fanatical prepper.
Though Zach can’t see the imminent danger, his parents whisk his family away to the Great Smoky Mountains in case the entire country crumbles into martial law. When the drones circle like buzzards and the bombs start falling, someone has to be the resistance….
Targeted Age Group:: 13+
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The movie Red Dawn was the primary inspiration. I like to turn family vacations into epic disasters, so no better place that Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I typically have a few people in mind. Friends, coworkers, etc…. It helps me really visualize their persona, though I'll never tell who is who.
I strode over the window and grabbed the cord. Before I could give it a yank, a sharp voice startled me.
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” Mom said.
“Jeez, Mom. You scared the crap outta me.”
“Better now than later,” she replied. “You never were a fan of taking a dump in the woods.”
“Mom, gross,” Maddie said.
“Point taken, darling,” Mom replied. “Anyway, you two forget that I was wanting to speak to you?”
“Uhm…no.” I dropped the cord to the blinds and turned the rest of the way around to face her. “What about Austin?”
“He’s already helping me out. At least I have one kid who listens.”
I fought back a retort and nodded.
Mom was looking like a zoo keeper again today, which had nothing to do with her actual job in pharmaceutical sales. She was in her knee-length khaki shorts and matching tan button-up shirt.
“I need you to gather up your stuff. We’re gonna start our, erm, vacation a bit early.”
