I have written about the importance of prepper fiction as a tool for convincing the non-prepper family member or friend to consider a self-reliant and preparedness lifestyle. A well-written story may be fabricated but it helps us comprehend the world nonetheless. As Stephen King once wrote – Fiction is the truth behind the lie.
After my success with The Boston Brahmin Series, readers and friends within the American Preppers Network encouraged me to tell the story of a non-prepping family. Those of us within the APN family become used to interacting with like-minded individuals. Sometimes, it’s hard to remember that the vast majority of Americans are not only unprepared, but they have no idea of what prepping entails. I wrote The Blackout Series for this purpose.
What would you do if a voice was screaming in your head – GET READY – for a catastrophic event of epic proportions, with no idea where to start, or how, or when.
This is a true story, it just hasn’t happened yet.
A catastrophic solar flare, an EMP – a threat from above to America’s soft underbelly below is hurtling toward our planet. In book one, the Ryman family has never heard of prepping. But they learn while they run out of time. An EMP, naturally generated from our sun in the form of a massive solar storm has happened before during the Carrington Event of 1859, and it will happen again.
The Blackout Series is a story of how our sun, the planet’s source of life, can also devastate our modern world. It’s a story of panic, societal collapse, and the final straws that shatter an already thin veneer of civility. It is a warning to us all – never underestimate the depravity of man.
What would you do when the clock strikes zero?
I’d be honored if you’d give my new post-apocalyptic fiction series a try. Here is a link:

Because you never know when the day before … is the day before.
Prepare for tomorrow.
