Thanks to everyone for giving me the opportunity to pass the characters and worlds in my imagination over to yours. I hope that the stories, while fictional, help folks prepare for the surprises that lay in store for us.
Getting older and worrying about my own children, I considered the dangers of the current world and the fragility of modern society built upon shifting sands. I noticed contemporary life more closely resembles fiction than fact, especially when compared to our ancestors.
Once the veneer is peeled away, what tangible truths are left for modern humans? Can we feed ourselves and our families? Can we keep them warm at night without reaching for the thermostat? If we feel ill, and there is no emergency room, what happens next? And most frightening of all to some, what safety exists if there is no first responder to call?
Join me on a journey to find out what actions ordinary people would take in extraordinary situations. Maybe we'll all be pleasantly surprised...even I don't know what some of these characters are going to do when fighting for their own survival!
Seven years after the grid down catastrophe known as the Great Reset plunged the world into a literal Dark Age, a new generation of survivors begin to take over the Fortress Farms. While food is no longer a daily struggle, even more sinister dangers are beginning to appear.
The farmers of the Okaw have survived the initial chaos of the Great Reset. Using their resourcefulness and with the help of their home grown mechanical geniuses, they have created a safe place for their friends and family. But their success has drawn attention, and those who wish to control the new world won't stand for groups that wish to choose their own path.
"A wonderful and difficult take on future American history..."
