Interview with Author Scott B. Williams
Doctor Prepper™ (James Talmage Stevens) talks with Scott B. Williams, author of 7 nonfiction books, has written 2 fiction books dealing with the effects of an EMP in the lives of groups of characters. As opposed to writing instruction books thinly veiled as fiction, Scott writes about the individuals implementing their skills and abilities to resolve the situations in which they are thrust by to regain their relationships and their normalcy.
Could a solar flare really have such devastating effects as those described in both these stories?
The Pulse is essentially the story of a father’s quest to find his way back to his daughter, and a total immersion into the harsh new reality for three young college students who end up in a labyrinth of rivers and swamps north of the city.
The plot of “The Darkness After” starts out with a massive solar flare that fries all electric and electronic devices, essentially eliminating almost all devices used in our society. Stranded in New Orleans, 16-year-old Mitch has to get from the city to backwoods Mississippi, using the skills he has learned from his father, a game warden. He starts on foot to make his way back to the family farm. Along the way, he meets April, a beautiful girl, smart, lethal and alone. The two combine their efforts to reunite with their families.
Williams utilizes proven survival techniques and shows how they could be a part of solving problems in this fictional EMP situation.
