In this sequel to How I Became a Teenage Survivalist, Ben's 13th year was when his family fell apart, but his 14th year is when his whole world, or more precisely, the whole
world, collapses. He had thought 13 was his unlucky number, the year
that Time turned its back on him, but he was wrong; that year, it was he
who had turned his back on Time. The following year, the fury of the
sun turns back Time for everyone in the world.
On PF (Power
Failure) Day, a huge electromagnetic surge from the sun destroys the
power grids and civilization as we know it. Living in the middle of
downtown Kansas City makes survival near impossible. Starvation,
dehydration, disease, freezing temperatures, and out-of-control fires
imperil the desperate population. After facing unimaginable losses, Ben
finds hope in for the future when he meets Sara, who has endured her own
share of agonizing loss. But when a murderous gang threatens to take
away everything Ben has left, they flee to a wilderness area of a large
city park where they learn to live off the land for survival.

My search for an agent has not been going well. I have thought about it and decided to self publish Entwined Courage. I will be starting my third novel as soon as I can. Now I am waiting on my cover for Entwined Courage to be done. I feel like a kid in a candy store.
My novel Entwined Courage is now written and polished up. In the last week I have submitted to 6 agents and now I"m playing the waiting game. I have never been a patient person and the next few weeks will be murder on me! LOL Wish me luck. Paranormal Properties was signed within two weeks. Is it good to hope this one will go fast also? Praying here.....
I live in Kissimmee Florida with my two children Jesse and Brittany. I have been trying to write a book for several years and finally made myself sit down and do it. After having an editor go through it we submitted it to publishers. In two weeks I was signed up and on my way to living my dream!
