This Plague of Days
is a labor of...well...mostly love. Spite. It was also good for spite.
As an underemployed freelancer, I hung out at a coffee shop and wrote the first draft over 10 months. It was based on my home city then, not Kansas City, Missouri. It also didn't have enough action to balance out the contemplative elements I liked. Seeing the end of the world through the eyes of an autistic boy obsessed with Latin proverbs is fascinating, but it was too different from what most readers expect. So...
I destroyed Europe. I confess.
And sorry about that. Also, in Season 3, I wasn't nice to Wilmington, Vermont. Less sorry.
The rewrite took many more months and the project has really evolved as Jaimie's character has grown. My aim was always, is always, to write something entertaining but different. There's a bit of gore, a bit of the supernatural and some speculation about the meaning of our world now that it's on the way out. When you get to the end, you'll be surprised to find the answers aren't in gunfire. I hope you'll enjoy This Plague of Days, either way.
