More on American Exodus

First I should say that this is not book 3 of the seires. Let's call it book 2.5. It is actually a stand alone story I've been working on for some time. It is connected to the other Catalyst books but new settings and characters.

The idea for this was a question I received while promoting the other books. "How would you get home if a disaster like this occured?"

Yeah...it was a good question and one I had given some thought to. When you travel you rarely would have any of the supplies you needed. Even preppers would be at a disadvantage. As I sat down to pen the story I took it one step farther—what would average Joe do in this situation? Someone with no clue as to what happened or how to survive. What developed was a truly satisfying 'get home' tale. Check it out and see if you agree.

  • This is an excellent dystopian book that I couldn’t put down. It was suspenseful, well written, and and intriguing.

  • Sometimes when you read a book, you are only an observer, albeit close to the action. Once in a great while, you are 'THERE'. This book is one of those. Five Stars.


  • Great Addition to the Catalyst Saga
