To Exist

To Exist is now for sale.

To Exist is my debut fiction novel. A post-apocalyptic love story and adventure tale, it will appeal to many tastes. One reader recently said, “It was so good! Full of twists and turns and was suspenseful ’til the end.”

Another reader wrote, “First of all let me say that the vivid descriptive writing style and flow of this book make you feel like you are there right next to the main character and it also locks this book in your hands not allowing you to stop reading until you reach the end. The anticipation and suspense starts at the beginning and carries throughout the entire journey.”

The main character, Shelby Weiss, is a modern-day heroine: think Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games meets Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & the City. Throw in a little of The Walking Dead‘s grit, and  you’ve got To Exist. Read the full press release below, and order today on your Kindle or Nook, or in paperback from  Amazon or Barnes & Noble. (You may also order directly from me!)

The hunt is on; Shelby is the prey.

A massive storm and terrorist attack leaves America in utter ruins. Shelby Weiss finds refuge and safety in the company of two older men. Mourning from the loss of her family and friends and troubled by the uncertainty of her own life because of a life-threatening illness, she is also set to face another danger of being hunted down by male remnants who see her as the only hope left to repopulate and save their side of the world.

The unexpected arrival of Jared, the man Shelby loves, would have given her hope if not for the fact that he has amnesia and, like the other men, might have been seeing her as the “holy grail” of human race’s survival. The hunt is on; Shelby is the prey. Caught in the midst of a great dilemma, Shelby is pressed to make an important decision: save herself or the potential future of a nation.

When up-and-coming screenwriter Shelby Weiss gets the news that she has the beginning stages of breast cancer, she thinks that life, as she knows it, is over. Little does she know, it is … but not for the reason she believes. A massive bi-coastal storm rocks the United States, followed by a terror attack that wipes out all infrastructure. Shelby is one of the few women to survive — and by the looks of it, the only remaining woman of childbearing age. Joined by an unlikely cast of characters, neurotic Shelby has to get out of her own head, figure out who she is, and get over lost loved ones in order to move forward. She and her newfound friends will trudge on through a dismal and dangerous new existence that could position her as the Holy Grail of post-apocalyptic America. The hunt is on; Shelby is the prey. Her choices now will shape not only her own future, but the potential future of a nation.
