A Dystopian Novel Fully-loaded With Non-stop Adventure!
Scarlett Lewis, an ordinary grade school teacher, is so absorbed in hopelessness after her fiancée leaves her that she doesn’t realize the United States is succumbing to a horrific pandemic. The Super-Summer Flu is sweeping the nation; meanwhile, Scarlett mopes around her condo.
Until . . . she begins to notice the bizarre events unraveling around her.
During her desperate search to find her sister and the rest of civilization, she meets other survivors (Dean, Justin, LuLu, and Paxton) who may not have her best interests at heart. With hope as her last weapon of defense, Scarlett must learn how to survive in this Creeper-infested world without sacrificing her own humanity.
Travel with Scarlett on her perilous journey through California as she discovers the dark fate of the human race.
A.D. Popovich was born and raised in Louisiana. At the age of fifteen, she moved to California with her family. Living in California was a huge eye-opener for her. California meant freedom. “Well, back in the 70s it did.” After meeting her husband, life has been one adventure after another. They lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for a while—absolutely wonderful. Several years later they made a wrong turn and ended up in Florida: too many tornados and alligators. They returned to California and set-up their own business, The Cosmic Shirt Company, for about two years until the Bankstas caused The Crash. Homeless for a while, “Yes, really.” They finally managed to get their feet back on the ground after obtaining super-boring jobs.
After several years of working in the mundane world, A.D. Popovich decided it was time for a change. She focused almost every second of her free-time focusing and visualizing her childhood dream—writing. She is busy working on the second book in Only the Dead Series “Only the Dead Don’t Lie.” She strives to write compelling, scary, survival stories with a touch of the metaphysical about the average guy and gal, (not a hitman, superhero, military expert, reporter or socialite).
When asked what people find surprising about her, she replied, “Hmm, the people who know me from my working-world life were super-surprised when I told them I had published a dystopian novel. They were like . . . ‘Whut?’ They were just getting used to my metaphysical side. Now they really think I’m weird. It seems odd to me as well that I like to venture to the dark side in my stories. Also, I’m super-girly; most people are surprised that I was in the Army Reserves. In fact, some people actually don’t believe me when I mention I’ve served in the military.”
