I know you're supposed to do third person here, but that seems rather impersonal. I enjoy post-apocalyptic and dystopian books and have since I was probably 12 years old. My English teacher read us a story called “The Girl Who Owned a City” by OT Nelson. The idea of a virus wiping out all the adults, well everyone above the age of 13 (if I'm remembering correctly), was extremely intriguing. At the time, I was spending a good majority of my younger days exploring the woods that wound their way through my neighborhood. (I wouldn’t be surprised if some of my forts were still nailed up in a few trees somewhere back there.) Building something from nothing has always had a place in my heart, and I’ve always kind of found that tucked into most books in the post-apocalyptic genre. I love my country--the good and the bad. All things come with both sides. I served 14 years in the Air National Guard and deployed to Iraq in 2010. I work full-time as a police officer for the City of Cincinnati. I believe in service before self. I believe in helping those who don’t have the means to help themselves. A little about my work: I published my first work in 2017 - a crime/suspense novella. Definitely out of genre, but I had a story that needed writing. Once I got that out of my system, I buckled down and got to work on a... Children's book? Yeah, I know. Something else I needed to get out of my system, right? But seriously, now, I'm focused on post-apocalyptic books oftentimes teetering on dystopian. My first series is the Almawt Virus Series. The novels are titled Days Since... and each book follows a different character. The overall plot of the series continues forward through each installment, but through different vantage points. In the Almawt Virus Series, a virus destroys life as we know it. Who's going to bring society back together? Post-apocalyptic life can seem impossible, but humans will persevere despite setbacks. Not all will live. Those in power will choose. It's a battle between the good and evil of the characters. Who's good? That's for you to decide.
