When a major crisis rocks the nation, supply lines are shut down everywhere. The small town of Moose Creek feels the effects almost immediately as they begin to run out of food.
In the remote regions of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the residents are hit again when the power is cut off to them in the middle of a brutal winter and they must struggle with one calamity after another, with the help of one woman
Allexa Smeth is their under-trained Emergency Manager, with problems of her own.
Book Two, continues the survival saga of Allexa Smeth and the town of Moose Creek. While the rest of the nation has begun the slow process of recovering from the devastating earthquakes of months earlier, the small town of Moose Creek is still suffering. The food bank and soup kitchen Allexa Smeth helped established to feed her community have closed, but the community rallies and finds ways to feed themselves, leaving Allexa the luxury of taking care of just her small family. Hope is on the horizon, but still out of reach.
Attacked by a vicious few who would take her family's most precious resource, Allexa Smeth fights back with her very being to protect her own, but it's only the beginning of what's to come. More earthquakes rock the nation and the perplexing sudden apathy of the town shocks Allexa into withdrawal when she realizes they are no longer heeding her warnings. The lasting darkness they are plunged into doesn't have anything to do with a light switch.
Massive electrical storms roll across the upper peninsula of Michigan as a result of the supervolcano eruption out west. Destructive lightning sets the city on fire, illuminating the night with crimson skies.
Allexa Smeth and her town of Moose Creek are finding it more and more difficult to survive the latest unleashing of natural-and manmade-disasters. Crimson Skies continues the saga of The Journal and takes the reader head-long into the fury that only Mother Nature can dish out.

The Journal series take the reader head first into the fury that only Mother Nature can dish out
The world was shaking apart and the North American continent was at the heart of it. An earthquake ripped the country in half at the New Madrid fault line. Shipping ceased and sent the country into a tailspin, with the small towns like Moose Creek suffering the most. Recovery came slow as the country pulled itself together, until another more terrifying quake hit, awakening the sleeping caldera beneath Yellowstone. The ash that circled the world disrupted weather patterns everywhere, blotting out the sun and stirring up massive storms.
Allexa Smeth and Colonel James Andrews set out to find the rift that broke the Upper Peninsula in half. Finding the colonel's men was a priority, but Allexa and the colonel didn't know it would mean getting into more than they bargained for-and possibly more than they could handle.
The saga continues, but not quite as you'd expect... A seemingly minor tremor escalates into a major earthquake, ripping the country in half at the New Madrid fault line, and Christine Tiggs is caught in the middle of it while at a conference in a neighboring city.
Having spent most of her life spoiled and sheltered by her father, John Tiggs, a mining supervisor who traveled the world, Christine is ill equipped to fend for herself. Climbing over debris filled stairs just to get out of the hotel she was trapped in was only the beginning of fighting for her very life. Even once she got back home, Christine was far from being safe.
John Tiggs tried to get back to Moose Creek after the first ash fall, he really did. Instead, he got picked up during the martial law crack down. To get out of the labor camp he agreed to work for FEMA in the recovery efforts for six months. He didn’t count on the work being so emotionally satisfying. Two years is a long time to be away from home, but he’s finally on his way back to Allexa.
Allexa Smeth has her own problems with martial law when a band of rogue military comes to her quiet town of Moose Creek
