I’m excited to reveal the cover for the upcoming sequel to Evergreen!
The World That Remains
Six months ago, Harper Cody stressed out over finding the right college–now, she’ll be thrilled if she makes it to her eighteenth birthday.
Unexpected nuclear war destroyed the world she knew along with her dreams for a future. Violent thugs took away her parents and home, sending her fleeing into the ashes with her traumatized little sister. Following her best hope for survival, she chased a rumor of safety in the mountains.
Evergreen, Colorado turned out to be the shelter she’d hoped for. There, her patchwork family could make the best of the world left behind. However, their new home came with an unexpected twist: to keep her father’s shotgun and protect her sister, sweet, introverted Harper had to join the militia.
Safety is relative in the aftermath of societal collapse. The mountain town may have avoided the worst of the atomic blasts, but danger still surrounds them: unstable people, starvation, cold, disease… and something or someone creeping about late at night, stalking the most vulnerable among them.
I’m thrilled to reveal the cover for my upcoming YA post-apocalyptic drama, Evergreen. Cover art by Alexandria Thompson. I’m expecting a release date near the end of the month or early Jan.
Harper Cody used to worry about the SATs or a getting a new laptop for Christmas… but now, she only wants to keep her little sister alive.
At 5:59 a.m. early in September, life as she knew it came to an end with a nuclear flash ninety miles away in Colorado Springs. For two months, her family sheltered in the basement of their home, surviving on whatever canned goods Dad could scavenge. Passing evacuees told of a safe haven in the mountains, but her father refused to leave. He thought their home was safe… until a gang of looters kicked in the door.
Four years ago at thirteen, Harper won trophies for competition shooting, but killing a man pointing a gun at her is nothing like nailing targets at a range. Hesitation cost her parents’ lives. With no other options, she grabbed her little sister and ran away from the only home she’d ever known into a world she no longer recognized.
The promise of safety in Evergreen gives her hope, but unless the girl voted sweetest in her class can find the nerve to kill, Harper—and her kid sister—are as good as dead.
