The end of the world

A nuclear bomb explodes in downtown Washington D.C. on the night of the State of the Union address. 

          The mushroom cloud consumes the President, his cabinet, the Vice President, senators, representatives, Supreme Court Justices and the Joint Chiefs of Staff as they gather for the President’s speech.  After witnessing the destruction of the capital city, Caden Westmore embarks on a journey to his boyhood home in Washington State, but over the next few days terrorists attack other cities and society unravels.

          The idea of determined terrorists striking a serious blow to the nation has concerned me for some time.  That concern became the premise of what will be my next novel.  I’ve given the novel the working title TEOTWAWKI—The End Of The World As We Know It.  I’m currently writing the first draft.
