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….

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I tend to turn harmless family vacations into survival stories. As an avid outdoorsman, I have applied my passion for the wilderness to create an exciting, all-too-lifelike story in PREPPER MOUNTAIN. Doomsday prepping abounds in nonfiction books and on television, but they are both overwhelmingly geared toward adults. The unique teen angle and compelling, realistic storyline will set this apart from anything else. Additionally, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park, and one that I truly love.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters are typically based on people I know, either intimately or just someone I have run across. Of course, the names are all changed. Some of their particular habits or quirks are modified a bit too, but it helps me really get a feel for a character if I base them, unknowingly to them, on a real person.
I looked to the sky. Rage built within me. I couldn't fathom how my own government turned the death machines on us. And for what? For hiding out in the park? For hiking off to do whatever we were about to do?
