No one is powerless

When fifteen-year-old Dee is left at her grandpa's farm in rural Washington, she thinks life is over.  She may be right.

A high-tech electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) attack destroys the country's power and communication grids, and sends the U.S. hurtling back to the Dark Ages.  Can Dee learn to survive without the basics:  electricity, clean water... even her cell phone?

The chaos caused by the EMP isn't her only problem.  A sinister plot by a corrupt official threatens Dee and all she holds dear.  She will have to fight if she wants to survive in this hostile new world.

Written for all fans who love apocalypse stories, Outage is a Young Adult novel of survival with a hint of romance and a lot of action-adventure. 

Books I recommend

I'll be adding more of my own work as quickly as I can, but in the meantime, here are some of my favorite books that you may enjoy too.

These books are great, check them out!

Survival Gear I Recommend

Here are a few survival type items that I have and use.  I won the Prescott bag in a giveaway (I'm so excited, I actually won something!) and the rest of these are things that I bought and love.  At some point I will get my blog going and write up my experiences with them.

Sun Oven by SOI

I was really fortunate to buy a Sun Oven this winter as part of a group order organized by my church.  It's a little pricy, but so worth it.  I was able to make a pasta sauce in it on a sunny day in February, so I know it will work year-round.  Not only is this perfect for emergencies, it will also be great this summer when it's too hot for cooking in the oven.  I plan to try baking regular bread and banana bread in it soon (inspired by scenes from Outage, of course!) and will post an update on how they turn out.

Prescott Bag from ZquaredAway

I won this in a Rafflecopter give-away at The design is ingenious and durable.  There are multiple layers of fire resistant materials, and the top of the bag folds over several times so the opening is secure too.  The handles are a nice touch, so it would be easy to grab in an evacuation situation. 

Portable Solar Charger by Instapark

This may be the most utilized (and favorite) item in our survival gear.  It's a solar panel that folds flat to about the size of an iPad.  It has 2 USB ports and I use it on camping trips and long drives to charge our devices.  Apart from an EMP type situation, I'm sure this would be our go-to piece of equipment in a real emergency, because we could keep our phones charged and stay in touch and informed.
