The day has come. The books have launched with the new publisher.
Oh, and I’m getting close to halfway on Book 3.


Happy New Year!
Just wanted to take a moment and wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year. May your dreams come true and may your hearts be filled with joy.

I have lots of plans for myself next year. Book 3 is well underway, and I have ideas for a couple of new ones working. Oh, and we’re downsizing our city mortgage and moving to the country. Busy, busy, busy! (Ouch, ouch, ouch)

If you didn’t see the Facebook post, the Audible version of When the Power is Gone has been launched. If you use that service, you can get the Audible version here: When the Power is Gone Audible

Again, I hope you all have a wonderful 2017!

The people on the East Coast have been devastated by Hurricane Matthew. Some people will go days, even weeks without power. The grocery stores are empty. The roads are impassable in some places. Does any of this sound familiar, you know, like you read it in a book of fiction? Prepping isn’t just about TEOTWAWKI. It’s about being ready for any event that could disrupt your day-to-day life. So, what can you do if you don’t have the money to invest in a year’s supply of food for a family of four in one fell swoop? The answer – buy cheap. Here’s a few suggestions.
