I have a couple of R&R addictions. One is romance stories. I love reading them, and I love writing them. The other one is disaster movies. I don’t know why, but I get completely involved in them. Even the campy ones. Some of my favorites are:
- The Day After Tomorrow
- Deep Impact
- Dante’s Peak
And don’t forget the ship disasters, like Poseidon or Titanic. Or the ones that make you go “Really?” like Volcano. In L.A.?
What can I say? They’re fun to watch. Better on film than in real life, right? And that addiction to disasters, coupled with a real-life concern that our planet has some issues, is a huge part of why I wrote the Earth Legacy fantasy series.
The third and final book in the Earth Legacy installment, Birthright, releases on May 16th. To honor that, and to meld my two addictions, I’ve written a short story that I’m offering for free to any newsletter subscribers.
Redefining love in a post-apocalyptic world
When the world is dying, your only focus is on survival. The war might be behind them, but the battle continues as Cait and Tom search for a safe place to love each other and raise their twin daughters.
