Quote from AJ Newman:
"I have always been a fan of Science Fiction and Mystery novels and wanted to write a novel since I was 10 years old. I try to make my characters become the kind of people that you see in your neighborhood and place them in life-changing situations. Only then, can you tell how they will react and their true character. None are role models just like the rest of us in this world. My heroes rise to the occasion and do what it takes to survive and beat the bad guys. My villains are bad and deserve what they get. I'm not into political correctness. God created all people equally. What they do after birth makes them heroes or villains."

Post-Apocalyptic Survival Fiction - Book 1
The apocalypse slowly rolled across the world without much notice except for the riots and looting. There weren't any bombs, EMP blasts, grid failure, or natural disasters to blame, as you always find in those post-apocalyptic novels. At 58 years old, Jeff Mann had read dozens of those apocalyptic sci-fi novels, and all were wrong. The cause was the incompetence of the world's governments and the failure of the many financial Ponzi schemes. First, the riots and looting came, and then starvation and depravity followed. The billionaires built safe compounds while everyone else died off or fought to survive the holocaust at the end of the modern world. Jeff begins a crusade against human trafficking after saving two women from slavers. Can one man and two women make a difference in a world gone mad?
