The storm has begun. Janna and Nate, an interracial couple living in the Lower 9th Ward, scratch and climb their way to the attic as the flood rises. Only one will survive, and only one will begin a journey through the New Orleans jungle in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The melancholy SWAT officer, Darren, barely hangs on as he tries to maintain a thin thread of order in the Louisiana Superdome. Ronald, the greedy developer trapped in the French Quarter, is fixated on money and the woman in the black fur coat. They could not be more estranged, more different, and yet their lives are about to collide. Through its pounding, gritty, shifting narrative, Storm of Hate considers the weight of the past, the horror of the present, and the undying hope for the future. It explores humanity's paradox—while meaning is shaped by others, we are all very much alone.

He currently lives in the Bahamas where he is completing his second novel and serving as the business editor of the Nassau Guardian.Review:
“Jeff Todd has produced a terrific piece of writing—well paced and well sustained throughout. The style of narration moves very quickly—essentially cinematic—although the rapid movement and the use of short sections are very much within the modernist tradition. Storm of Hate creates a vivid world and characters who are very deftly articulated—along with a mood of difficulty and of loss which is entirely convincing.”
--Alistair Davies, Professor of English literature, University of Sussex
“Jeff Todd has written a powerful and compelling story about the chaos, anguish and suffering of Hurricane Katrina as it was experienced by a cross-section of ordinary people. New Orleans is represented with intensity and immediacy and the characters are uniquely genuine. The novel builds in suspense and anxiety as it moves toward the especially well-realized, horrifying events and squalid conditions of the Superdome. A fine first novel.”
--Catherine Harland, Professor of English literature, Queen’s University
“Storm of Hate is a powerful story about the struggle to survive amid the chaos of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Author Jeff Todd paints a vivid and affecting picture of fragile hopes, personal tragedy and social breakdown. Peopled with memorable characters, the novel straddles and exposes the divisions of life in New Orleans: black and white; rich and poor; those born lucky, those searching for a modicum of happiness, and those whose chances were blighted from the start.”
--Gene Allen, Associate professor of Journalism, Ryerson University
