I’m the secretary of and one of four “plank-owners” of a 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit called Frontline Preparedness. We are local to Kitsap County, Washington and specialize in sharing preparedness infomation in the form of free classes. We try to incorporate hands-on training as much as the weather will allow. We’re currently on-hold due to the virus lockdowns, but we’ll get our monthly classes up and running as quickly as possible.
Not IF, But WHEN…
“Slaughter County”, Western Washington
Not if, but when. That’s what “they” keep telling us. There’s a 20% chance that the Cascadia Subduction Zone will shake with a 9.0 earthquake sometime in the next 50 years. Correction – ANY time in the next 50 years.
The idea for Cascadia Fallen was born out of a combination of real-events: the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, the series of earthquakes in Western Washington in the 90’s along with the Nisqually Earthquake of February 28, 2001, and finally the Cascadia Rising multi-agency drill, held in the Fall of 2016.
While the events of Tahoma’s Hammer play out in a worst-case scenario, they are scarily quite possible. This 3-book series and the planned, “off-shoot,” military-fiction novel in the Cascadia Fallen universe are meant to get people thinking. The objective is two-fold – write a good, character-driven saga, while encouraging people to prepare. There are some preparedness tips and hints, but not so much that it bogs down the flow of the plot. Besides, that’s what my BLOG page is for! Please, enjoy the heart-aches and triumphs of the Walker family and their friends as exciting fiction, based in an eventual reality – you know, according to “them.”
