A hundred years ago the Bug wiped out over ninety percent of humanity and even now it kills anyone whose heart rate goes over 140 beats per minute. That’s why the Prime Administrator gave everyone the Papas – digital wrist monitors that put people to sleep when their heart rate gets too high. The Papas saved humankind. But one night on the border of New Frisko, when fifteen-year-old Nik Granjer tampers with his Papa and discovers there is more to the Bug than he thought, a brutal enforcement squad from the city suddenly forces Nik into hiding. On the run and searching for allies, Nik’s only hope is to escape with his life and discover the truth about the Prime Administrator’s regime and the origins of the Bug.


The stunning sequel to Beat.

Two months after the attack on New Frisko, Nik Granger and the other survivors believe themselves hidden from the tyrannical rule of Prime Administrator Adam Holland. Until one day when Nik returns to camp to discover they weren’t safe at all. Holland and his Enforsers have killed or captured most of the survivors—including Nik’s parents. 
Nik and a few friends barely escape with their lives and must race to stop Holland before he murders the rest of their friends and family. As they travel through what’s left of America, Nik, Pol and Melisa face danger at every turn, including Ranjers who will stop at nothing to carry out Holland’s sadistic orders. With the world against them, can they make it in time to save what’s left of humanity? And when it comes to it, will Nik have what it takes to destroy Holland once and for all?

Goals for 2019

I haven't had really any goals for several years. I'm not sure when I stopped, but I think it might have been when I started working for Amazon. That job was so absorbing in every way: mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. You know, that has to be it. I...

An Open Letter to Richard Paul Evans. Man to Man.

(and to the men and women who can't see the problem in what he himself is admitting to having done) Disclaimer: I'm not wading into the abominable behavior of folks connected to FanX here, particularly in the way they've treated Shannon Hale (who is one of my heroes)...
