Editorial Reviews


"A post-apocalyptic tale of aliens, conspiracy theories and wild action. Packed with devious twists, dynamic characters and an ending you won't see coming." --Jonathan Maberry
"One of the greatest parts of Robinson's writing is that he allows for interpretation depending on each reader's beliefs." --SuspenseMagazine
"Robinson, best known for his thrillers and adventure novels, shows that his fertile imagination is equally well suited to science fiction." --Booklist
"Just when you think that 21st-centuryauthors have come up with every possible way of destroying the world, along comes Jeremy Robinson."  --New Hampshire Magazine

From the Author

I've written a lot of novels, most on my own and a good number with co-authors, but none quite so unique in terms of its story, its characters and how the manuscript was written. While The Distance was written with a co-author, there are a few things about the arrangement that set it apart. The first is that my co-author for this novel is my wife, Hilaree.
During the first fifteen years of my writing career (thirteen years of toiling without pay) Hilaree was essentially my writing coach. While I had no experience or schooling when it came to writing fiction, Hilaree was an English major before she dropped out to marry me. She'd spent most of her life writing, and reading novels, while I was focused more on comic books and movies. They're perfectly good creative outlets, but they're not novel writing. Without Stephen King's On Writing, Strunk and White's The Elements of Style and Hilaree's honest critiques, I would not be an author.
So writing a novel with Hilaree was very exciting, but also a little intimidating (for both of us). Hilaree has a high standard for literature, so I was afraid I wouldn't measure up to her more beautiful prose and deeper characters. At the same time, Hilaree was unpublished and writing with her husband, who had now written more than fifty books and was in a position to teach her a thing or two.
Despite our mutual fears,the combination of our voices, transformed into the voices of August and Poe,and we turned this book into one of the best books I've ever written. Hilaree's involvement elevated my writing and character development, while she benefitted from my plot development and penchant for action. I have rarely been so proud of how well a book came out, and I'm equally proud of Hilaree, for facing and overcoming her fears about writing a novel while being a full-time homeschooling mom of three kids. That alone is impressive, but the end result of our combined hard work is something special. Like our children, The Distance is something we created together, and I'm excited to see what it becomes when we set it loose on the world.
