My upcoming book has the key features of a post-apocalyptic thriller: battle, spies, and the desperate alliance of two women from the opposite sides of the war. This is Mad Max- Fury Road in the blood-thirsty, arctic wasteland. The setting is frozen Europe, twenty-five years after the nuclear holocaust. The Russian Federation and The European Union fight each other with nail and teeth.
My heroine is a POW in a post-apocalyptic war. She escapes prison and avoids being blackmailed into becoming a double agent. She roams the northern outback and saves a young enemy woman who will lead her to grave danger- and save her ass. The story has a spiritual heart, and where the rifle clicks on empty, ancient gods and animal spirits rise to save the day.

A new book in the making
Conjurer of Evil is a supernatural thriller and a collaboration of three writers: myself, Schuyler Pulliam and Stephanie Colbert. I write part I:
Elli Becker believes she has landed a dream job as a trainee in the SS Helferinnen women’s Korps. The year is 1941, and seventeen-year-old Elli soon struggles with Nazi ideology as she sees Jewish families evicted and beaten on the streets of Berlin.
A set of supernatural occurrences leads her to trace the demon assassin Marchosias. The race to command The King of Killers starts, but he executes impossible assassinations and escapes without traces. A Jewish man Josef Leinkraum is the only clue, and he went underground to dodge arrest.
Elli sacrifices everything and ends up on the wrong side for a young German woman. The Gestapo agents close in on her.
A teaser from the Conjurer of Evil coming soon!
