Only weeks after their extravagant wedding, Adele’s new husband turned violent. Even after the divorce he continues to stalk her, until he finally lands in a Texas mental hospital. Adele needs to disappear.
She flees to a remote resort in Montana to heal her broken bones and broken spirit. Adele is finally safe—until an electromagnetic pulse takes down the grid nationwide and everything changes. There’s no lights, no heat and winter is approaching fast. And now her ex-husband has escaped—and he’s coming after her.
Deborah Moore is single and lives a quiet life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with her cat, Tufts. She was born and raised in Detroit, the kid of a cop, and moved to a small town to raise her two young sons, then moved to an even smaller town to pursue her dreams of being self-sufficient and to explore her love of writing.
Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future...and our end.

Years have passed since humanity’s destruction emerged from the Breach.
Friendless and alone he walks across a desolate, war-torn landscape.
As each day passes the world tumbles further into depravity, bent and twisted by the new order, corrupted by the Usurper, the enemy, and his infernal horde.
His purpose is to reach the Shining City, last bastion of the human race, and deliver the only weapon that may make a difference in the ongoing war.
What little hope remains is dying. Abandoned by its leader, The Seven, and its heroes, The Seraph Knights, the last defences of a once great civilisation are crumbling into dust.
But the Shining City is far away and the world is a very dangerous place.
Adele may be safe at the resort, but she’s also stranded far from home and family. Now she must undertake a long and perilous journey from Montana to Michigan, and two of her new friends aren’t about to let her make the journey alone.
Faced with both friend and foe, the travelers find themselves on a dangerous path. Will finding her mother be enough for them to start rebuilding their new lives?
Book Two, Ash Fall, continues the survival saga of Allexa Smeth and the town of Moose Creek.
While the rest of the nation has begun the slow process of recovering from the devastating earthquakes of months earlier, the small town of Moose Creek is still suffering.
The food bank and soup kitchen Allexa Smeth helped established to feed her community have closed, but the community rallies and finds ways to feed themselves, leaving Allexa the luxury of taking care of just her small family. Hope is on the horizon, but still out of reach.
Attacked by a vicious few who would take her family’s most precious resource, Allexa Smeth fights back with her very being to protect her own, but it’s only the beginning of what’s to come.
More earthquakes rock the nation and the perplexing sudden apathy of the town shocks Allexa into withdrawal when she realizes they are no longer heeding her warnings.
The lasting darkness they are plunged into doesn’t have anything to do with a light switch.
Nearly two years later, John is finally on his way home to an unknown reception-he let a lot of people down when he left, and now it's time he made it up to them.
Meanwhile, Allexa Smeth, Emergency Manager and reluctant deputy mayor of Moose Creek, has her own problems when a band of rogue militants comes to town and tries to seize control. With Colonel James Andrews missing, Allexa must enlist the help of the nearby military base to save her town from an even bigger threat.
Sage Aster doesn’t really believe that Morgan can send her back to the past, so as payment for the kindness Morgan showed her when she was homeless and alone, Sage agrees to the time travel experiment. She is then stunned to find herself transported back to 1912 aboard the doomed Titanic.
Again and again Sage is sent back to different timelines, never quite knowing what she is supposed to accomplish—or how to make things right.
