About this title

Synopsis:

End of the World as we know it

Every day, millions of people use their cars, cell phones, and computers. They commute to work by bus or train.

Hospitals run efficiently. Food is delivered 'round the clock.

Imagine all of that . . . gone.

June 23, 2017: The United States is crippled by an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack, leaving every citizen in the dark, helpless and alone. It will happen again. Every thirty days another country will be attacked until the entire world is plunged into darkness.

Captain Beverly Mossberg is assigned the task of reaching Washington, DC to assassinate the terrorist before he strikes again. She is accompanied by her two children, Michael, 9 and Jazmine, 12 and Sedona Armstrong, a stranger determined to join the party.

They traverse a now lawless land, encountering the best - and the worst - humanity has to offer.

Upon arriving in DC, Bev learns that she has been misled – again. Only this time, she has the weight of saving the world on her shoulders.

Nero’s Fiddle brings to the forefront a threat the government doesn’t want to talk about. The danger of an Electromagnetic Pulse event is very real and possible. Not only a manmade attack, but a nature-made attack via solar flares from the sun.

The book also puts women heroes in the limelight. Captain Beverly Mossberg and Sedona Armstrong are two capable women, despite their human vulnerabilities. Their journey is fraught with danger, action and drama. But the journey makes both women stronger and more determined to save the world from utter and complete darkness.

What people are saying about Nero's Fiddle:

The roller coaster ride of adrenaline through this book will keep you turning page after page.

I once wanted to be Ripley (from Aliens) but now I want to be Beverly!

smart, funny, devastating, mysterious, rich with description and layers, terrifying and fascinating all at once.

About the Author:

Bitten by the writing bug at the age of ten, Pen is an avid reader in addition to being a prolific writer. A native Georgian she lived in Hollywood, California for a year and a half (pursuing Film Studies - an interesting distraction) and six weeks in Asheville, NC (attempting to get herself together).

Influenced by the world around her, Pen writes whatever comes into her fuzzy little red head (currently Vidal Sassoon Merlot Vibrant Red). She writes in no specific genre as she has a variety of interests and passions about which to write.

In addition to reading and writing, Pen loves movies and music, particularly the music of the 80s and prior. Again, her passions for movies and music are as eclectic as her writing and reading.

Not a huge fan of television she is, nonetheless, currently an avid follower of ABC's Once Upon A Time television series. So much so, that this series inspired her to write the Sword of Tilk Trilogy and influenced the writing of Nero's Fiddle, though it is hardly recognizable in any of those tomes.

Pen enjoys reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe, Agatha Christie, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, James Rollins' Sigma Force series, Lindsay Buroker, Kathryn Harvey and Judy Mercer (may she rest in peace). A host of other authors grace her bookshelves, too numerous to mention. She has been known to reread books numerous times.

Pen currently resides in the Atlanta, Georgia area where she is staff to two felines.
