Coming soon…from Crossroad Press

Scorched Earth, my latest nightmare.

In the year 2032, a record-breaking drought grips the nation. Tinder-dry conditions fuel massive fires. Water reserves plummet to new and dangerous lows. Draconian water laws punish even minimal waste without mercy. And there’s no relief in sight.

A fast-moving inferno ignites in Western Nebraska, driving Jake and Lexi from their home in the middle of the night with almost no time to pack up their belongings. They flee west on the interstate, along with their infant daughter Ava, hoping the fire will soon be contained and they can return home.

Instead, the fire races out of control, quickly consuming much of the Nebraska Panhandle, forcing Jake and Lexi to decide on a hasty relocation plan. They hit the road through the Nevada desert, heartbroken over the widespread destruction and their loss, but hoping to find a new and better life out West.

But the road takes them places they never could have expected…places they never wanted to go.

Jake and Lexi thought they’d already lost everything to the fire. They were wrong.

Which road should you take when escape is only an illusion?
