My name is Rob Huntington. If this new world has shown me anything, it's that once things are taken from you, they are never coming back.

Good thing I never was a fast learner.
Rob "Hood" Huntington never wanted this life. When civilization collapses, he quickly realizes he's a naturally gifted marksman. But he hates violence. When his family is ripped from him amidst a war between two wasteland kings, how long can he hold onto his ideals?

And how far is he willing to go to to save the ones he loves?

A Legend Is Reborn in the American Apocalypse.

"This post apocalyptic tale is one of those rare reads where writing skill, imagination and just plain grit combine to make a story worth reading." -Amazon Reviewer

"Gripping narrative, vibrant characters and good pacing. I enjoyed every moment of it. . .Characters are memorable for their genuine, human and relatable thoughts and reactions. Simultaneously humorous and bitter, story is certainly worth your time." -Amazon Reviewer

"The writing is superb... Pickering has a way making the characters believable and relatable while painting a beautifully clear picture of a violent and not so beautiful world. Hood is well paced, suspenseful and action packed but also has a lot of heart... it deals with the characters internal and external demons making the reader think what you would do in a certain situation." -Amazon Reviewer

About the Author

Like so many of you, I am a man obsessed with stories.

From the earliest parts of my youth that I can remember, I yearned for imaginary worlds. I created stories and lived them out in my backyard, I found myself engrossed in fantasy novels, mystery novels, roleplaying games, television shows, history, and anything else I could get my hands on.

When I was eighteen, and I first attempted creative writing, I knew it was something I was born for, as dramatic as that sounds. It just felt right. I wrote my first novel that year, and it's still howling under the bed, so to speak, in dire need of revision.

My first real success stemming from my writing ability began when I placed 7th in the 76th annual Writer's Digest Competition for my short story entitled Serenaded. Since then, I've published more than 50 articles as a freelance writer, and I released HOOD as my debut novel of the American Rebirth Series in January 2016. The success it has had since then is something of a dream.

As for the rest of my life, I've been a professional poker player for many years. I've backpacked Europe, I've biked alone across the northeastern US by myself when I was eighteen. I grew up living on a boat half the year every year. I've hung out in grimy side streets and in sprawling mansions and empty parking lots. I've read a lot of books, played a lot of video games, I've grown up and I've stayed young and I'm still searching for something. I think we all are.
