Nature Survival and other Hardship

Danny Boy & Tennie (Short Stories of the American Frontier-1800s)

Camp Tough, Lessons Learned The Hard Way
“Two fathers form a plan to set their sons free to become self-reliant at an isolated camp site owned by Mathew located on a river in the back country of Alberta, Canada. The boys are faced with living in the wilderness by themselves, without any communications or electricity, and facing their issues alone with no adult supervision. Can they endure weeks and weeks of such solitude? There are lessons to be learned...the hard way.”

Politics, Terrorism, and Intrigue/Conspiracy

American Myth: 2012  (sorry, the usual picture link wasn't available for this book)
“With the election as a backdrop, 2012 weaves through an Iranian Crisis, an investigation into moles and corruption in the FBI, Congress and corporate America. Beller addresses many real events and people who are part of current events for the USA during 2012, while also creating many interesting fictional characters.”

Oil and Corruption
“A Russian politician and high level Western Oil Executive have been assassinated within minutes of each other. Their murders become inadvertently linked through the everyday work of an oil analyst, Jonathan Marshall. A leak of Jonathan’s work causes consternation at the highest levels of Governments, business and beyond, sparking deployment of assassins and agents to silence the source and prevent the uncovering of global corruption in the oil industry. With his life in danger, Jonathan battles to discover the truth and stay alive…”

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

“In the year 2035, race, religious and ethnic wars had engulfed the entire world. They had been so devastating and widespread that finding a solution had become a worldwide endeavor. For once untold trillions of the various world’s currencies was spent by governments in order to ensure that the almost collapse of societies could never happen again. The brightest and best thinkers were tasked with coming up with a world wide solution to this seemingly intractable problem. The solution that was put forth and adopted by the world’s leaders called for the gradual phasing out or dilution of all identifiable racial, ethnic and religious groups.”

Countdown to Meltdown (Audio Drama Scripts)
Radio drama. “Professor Jeff Harman announces live on air, that a comet will devastate north-eastern USA in less than 30 minutes. He has already notified the White House and the President has fled on Air Force One, leaving behind the Vice-President and Major Fenton, the holder of the nuclear codes briefcase. They are unable to contact Air Force One as the President’s toddler son has disabled the communications on the aircraft. When all seems lost, Moses Katinski launches a home-made missile at the comet, but Murphy's Law rules....”

Heckel Casey
“Former high school teacher Heckel Casey knows how civilization collapsed in this post-apocalyptic world. And he knows who is responsible for the evil that has nearly decimated humanity. His journey across the country slowly reveals that there is a power growing inside of him that is strong enough to confront the evil and eliminate it. ... Encountering attacks from hellish snakes, demonic bikers, violent tempests, not to mention self-doubt, deception and betrayal, Heckel must overcome these ‘bumps’ in the road to lead his companions to the ultimate battle to save humanity.”


Seasons of Change
“The U.S. economy, and most everything else, has collapsed when a trade war shuts off all U.S. imports. Everything east of the Mississippi River has fallen under the control of ruthless leaders who plans to start their own country. Money has no value but cash crops can be traded for guns. People are forced into labor camps and those at risk scramble to find a pace to hide. All Michael wanted to do when he moved into the north Georgia woods was to hide until he could rejoin his family when it was safe. Then a young girl wanders into his campsite, the first of many to find their way to his camp. She stole his heart and his dog as she made everyone in the camp her friend and in the process became the catalyst that changed everything. When the camp is discovered Michael promises to move the camp to safety. The only way out is west. He must not only risk his life but the lives of many others to keep his promise. There are friendships, betrayals, sacrifice and survival as the camp moves west in search of safety. This novel chronicles this journey, and introduces you to some remarkable people who made the trip.”
