Every person has imagined what it would be like to wake up one morning and discover they were the only person left alive on Earth. The Event--Apocalypse Dawning has taken a new twist in this fantasy. There is no cataclysmic destruction of the earth, no lingering virus, or mutated brain-eating zombies. There is however a selective culling of the population. Ninety-five percent of the Earth's population vanishes in a blink of an eye. Left are the few survivors, separated from each other, absent the governments which ruled them and the moral and ethical laws of society which guides them. Each man becomes a new 'Adam.' And, each woman becomes a new 'Eve.' If humanity is to survive, somehow these castaway remnants must find each other and establish new societies, which may or may not necessarily be patterned after the old ways.
About the Author
Dan C. Boutwell is a retired city planner. He is educated with a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts and a Master's degree in City and Regional Planning. However, today his greatest pleasure is to share his written stories with you. For forty years urban planning was his vocation and focus. He worked as a consultant in a planning firm of which he is still the owner and president. During that time he discovered he had a passion for writing. Over the years he created numerous short stories and tales for his own enjoyment. After retiring, he determined to share these stories, tales, and yarns with family, friends, and others. His vocation has taken him into scores of cities, both large and tiny, where he was exposed to the colorful history of Texas. He is a student of the West, the American Civil War, and anything dealing with Texas and/or Indian Territory. Dan loves science-fiction along the line of the Rod Serling model. He is an ardent genealogist; his studies in genealogy have fed his appetite for creative writing, bringing the cold facts of the past to life again. His passion is writing, in whatever genre suits him at the moment. Dan lives in a small Texas town with his wife and best friend, Max, an eighty pound black Lab. He is a semi-retired city planning consultant who now enjoys writing and other hobbies including his grandchildren. He spends the majority of his time doing the thing he enjoys most doing, writing.
