Skyler Campbell. Someone who had a serious crush on her once described Skyler as "a bad ass blonde who has a way with words and guns." Someone who wanted her dead described her a bit differently - "That b*tch is f*cking crazy."Either way there is no denying that she is a force to be reckoned with. An expert marksman, a martial artist, a survivalist. And a smart ass. For better or for worse, no matter what the situation, she is nearly always holding steady at DEFCON Snark.This is her story.It all started with 1997XF11. That's the official name for the asteroid that was hurling through space at 280,000 mph. For years it was predicted to come extraordinarily close to Earth, like many asteroids do. But this time, something went very wrong and its trajectory changed, putting it on a collision course with the planet. Surviving its impact in a bunker in Long Island wasn't even half the battle. Along with worldwide destruction, the asteroid also brought with it an alien bacteria that, once airborne, adversely affected a substantial portion of all 'XF11 survivors, changing their way of life in some very devastating ways. This new normal is unfriendly and dangerous for many, and Skyler finds herself on the run and hunted as she tries to navigate her way westward in hopes of starting a new life safe from those who now see her as an enemy of humanity.

About the Author

Hey hello, Garrison here. I'm not sure if these things are usually written in the third person, but it's me writing this bio, so first person it is.

I started working on the Plagued trilogy in 2014 after a Los Angeles lunch with a popular YouTuber. The initial story was actually written as a short script with her being the inspiration for the main character. I asked a few close friends in "the biz" (yes I hate the way that sounds too) to read it and they encouraged me to expand the story into a feature length script and then eventually convinced me to turn it into a series.

Those projects still exist and are still actively being shopped on the West Coast, however I thought "Why not turn the whole thing into a series of novels in the mean time?" Easier said than done, but after a year I was able to publish the first book in November of 2017.

The next book in the series is already started, as is another novel that is unrelated to the Plagued universe.

I've recently joined twitter so give me a follow if you're so inclined @garrisonwrites - I currently live with my husband, my dog and my cat in beautiful scenic upstate New York but would be willing to move should I ever win an HGTV dream house contest.
