Everyone knows the story of the apocalypse: The greedy, corrupted world governments waged war, devastated the entire planet, mutated the majority of humanity through biological weapons, and destroyed themselves in the process.

Overview

Everyone knows the story of the apocalypse: The greedy, corrupted world governments waged war, devastated the entire planet, mutated the majority of humanity through biological weapons, and destroyed themselves in the process. The gangs took their place and the only rule of survival was to join them, or at least get on good terms with one or five. Try to survive on your own…well, the concept is nothing short of laughable.

But not to nineteen-year-old Dane. A psychic gifted with extraordinary telekinetic powers, senses, and a self-programmed drive to survive, the thought of bowing to any form of authority is less than laughable. Dane doesn’t question the story of the apocalypse, and has convinced herself that she is content to be the only one of her kind. But she is destined to pierce through the shadow of ignorance that blankets the world. People are watching her, people who want her to know that World War III was merely a smokescreen to hide another war. A war driven by prejudice and paranoia. A war that resulted in the near extinction of Dane’s people and gave birth to a savage, lawless world…

Meet the Author

Have been stuck in Florida for as long as I can remember, and much as I'd love to see snow sometime in the future I'm happy as can be. I'm a Liberal and Progressive, but also well aware that corruption is always inevitable in politics which explains my strong Machiavellian streak. Since I discovered my passions will always lie in the arts a few years back, I've been teaching myself how to draw and am currently training to be a concert pianist and composer.

I've always loved to write, but fan fiction helped me realize my dream career. A bit about my books; The Evanescence Chronicles is a satirical joke (mostly revolving around irony) on modern day paranormal romance. Like Wax Under Flame is a short story that I'm currently developing into a series of novels. The first one is tentatively scheduled to be released in the spring of 2013. A brief warning to all: Though I include these elements with a purpose Like Wax Under Flame is my most violent, dysfunctional, perverse story yet. Even more so than my fan fiction.

My favorite author will always be Matthew Stover, but like the common geek I'm a huge fan of Tolkien, Rowling, George R.R. Martin, and Orson Scott Card. My favorite show is "The Vampire Diaries" (something I never expected, really, REALLY hoping they never jump the shark), and my favorite movie is a balance between Crash(2004) and The Dark Knight.

My cat is lord and master of the universe.

    Interesting concept but not a pleasant world. Good characters even if they are not the warm and fuzzy kind.

    Good read!

    A compelling dystopian story. Where as the main character can be a bit prickly and difficult to love at times, I couldn't help but to be intrigued and invested in her future. I can't wait to find out the rest of Dane's story.
