Lucky enough to be in the 2-percent of the nation immune to the Omega virus, journalist Aaron Garrett is given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enter the quarantined city of San Francisco. His assignment: Spend three days with the family of Samuel Elliot, the errant minister suspected of releasing the deadly contagion upon the Bay Area.

Aaron’s journey takes him into a city fractured to extremes, from idyllic neighborhoods clinging to hope, to war-zones fighting for survival. While everyone seems to know more about Samuel’s disappearance than they’re willing to say, one thing is certain – misery can no longer be the norm.

With the Elliot family, Aaron embarks on a mission to save someone, anyone, from a doomed existence.

“Apocalypse fans you will LOVE this…the type of writing that is usually found in traditionally published novels…The book is enthralling.” Carrie, Cryptic Reads

“The characters are compelling, ideas inventive and philosophies thought-provoking.” AnneG, Amazon

“This is the kind of novel that entertains you while also making you think…The whole story has a kind of deeper meaning to it, so that, if you look closely, you might just leave with a new perspective.” Abby, Goodreads

“If, and that is a big if, we would have found this book on the shelf in a bookstore, we would have passed it by. However, that would have been a terrible mistake on our part. This is a great book.” Ray, Goodreads

Published spring of 2013, my wife and I designed the cover. Not a good idea. We received enough negative comments about our design that I knew it was time to bring in a professional. Scroll down to see the incarnations up to the current cover.
