I wrote a guest post on the awesome Rhiannon Frater’s blog today (that’s Rhiannon Frater of As the World Dies trilogy’s fame) talking about kick-ass women in apocalyptic fiction and my character Cade Alton in particular.
Cade is a thirty-two-year-old Memphis resident who is an immigrant from Israel. Trained extensively in all matters military, she spent seven years in the IDF and, as such, honed some serious sniper skills–a woman so good at what she did that she would have made a great recruit for Mossad. She is a rifle-toting, knife-and-gun-collecting enigma wrapped in a mystery with all the assorted mood swings to go along with it. She’s strong-willed and independent, loyal to a fault, and quite capable of some major butt-kicking whenever the situation calls for it. Oh, and she has a very unladylike habit of swearing like a sailor on shore leave too. Just call it “venting.”
You can read the entirety of the guest post right here on Rhiannon’s blog.
And, as an extra-special treat, I decided to extend the availability of The Becoming: Brothers in Arms as a freebie for an extra day! You can pick it up right here if you haven’t already! 🙂
