The Survivors

A Dangerous Destiny

Some of the survivors are different, powerful. Their bloodlines have been brought together in this time and place to create safety for the remnants of all societies. Fated to lead and rebuild, these magnetic women and men are now the most valuable commodity in the apocalyptic wastelands.

Nuclear war devastated the world just days before Christmas. All governments went underground, leaving their citizens to fend for themselves. The desperate normals who barely managed to stay alive must now make a choice. Do they join the strange, dangerous survivors in forming a more perfect union or do they kill every last one of them? One choice will save the world. The other will finish burying it under the nuclear ashes.

Book One centers around the first group of chosen people who find each other amid the relics of America. Brought together by a man with many secrets, they struggle to adapt to an ever-changing new world while trying to build the first post-war safe haven for humanity.

This is Safe Haven

“We offer food, shelter, and protection to all survivors. Does anyone copy? …hello? Is anyone alive out there?”

The end of the world has given humanity a harsh, merciless existence, where nature tries hard to push us to the very brink of extinction. Everything is against us, between us. Untold miles of lawless, apocalyptic roads wait for our feet, and the future, cold and dark, offers little comfort. Without change, there can be no peace—only survivors.


Meet Angela White

I now write full time and live on a small ranch with my family and our clowder of barn cats. You haven’t laughed until you’ve seen newborn kittens playing in the weeds. It’s an amazing way to begin the day. Thank you to everyone who gave me a try. I wouldn’t have this life if not for all of you. Self-sufficiency is an indescribable gift, especially when you grow up poor. May someone help each of you the way you’ve helped me.

War is Personal. Hell, Luck and Resilience: A WWII Combat Marine’s Accounts of Okinawa and China

cover

The invasion of Okinawa was one of the bloodiest battles of WWII Pacific. The casualties were monumental. Roy Wilkes, Private, USMC was unfortunate enough to have a front-row seat. He witnessed twenty-three of his friends die in a bombing. True, gripping stories and pictures reveal the mind, heart, and soul of a fighting WWII Marine.


EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK:


“The grim reaper missed me. The dumb bastard had a close-up swing at me on six different occasions—and missed.”


“The casualties were monumental. Trucks were coming down the lines with Marines piled like cordwood. They put ponchos over ‘em, but you could see all these feet dangling out. It was like a conveyor belt. We were going up and they were coming back. The only difference is we were alive—and they were dead.”




“The Marine Raider [A Raider is a part of the elite special operations force] said, “If another grenade comes in, I’ll take care of it.” And just as he said that another grenade came in. He grabbed his rifle and charged the hill.”




“Continuous rain dampened the soul.
The low, thick dark clouds made sure God didn’t see.
What happened here was a secret from Him.

God was busy someplace else.
So this part of His Universe went insane.”

This fascinating book is also a perfect history lesson for students since it covers all aspects of the Battle of Okinawa: Mental, emotional, historical, and personal. There are short stories about the war—some tragic, some funny, some thought-provoking—but all true. There are also 54 pictures, two interviews with Roy, and “After the War” pages. This eye witness account gives the complete picture of what World War II was really like and how PTSD was with him till the end of his life.
