A Special Forces commando returns home from combat to America on the edge of apocalypse. He and his family land a gig running security for a wealthy clan of survivors, yet most of the group struggles to make peace with the sudden death of modern sensibilities and woke culture.

Can a few salty warfighters convince plastic surgeons, realtors and human resource managers that they must pick up their guns and fight or their families will die?

Green Beret, Jeff Kirkham, and his buddies think they’re locked and loaded for yet another war, but nothing can prepare them for the runaway violence of America after a cascade of terrorism, government blunder and Facebook nastiness strips away the urban dreamscape.

At what point do everyday people turn the corner and become warriors?

Co-written by a 28-year Green Beret and a lifelong survivalist, Black Autumn proves that common, everyday glitches in our system can add up to the total collapse of Western Civilization.

Black Autumn series. A preparedness thriller.

Reading Order:

The series can be read in the series order (books one through nine) or by direct sequels, as indicated by the down arrows in the chart. The first row (black books) all happen during the same 17 day collapse. The second row (white books) take place during the first three months of winter.

The series runs in two directions: by time and by location.

You pick which way you like it.

A Black Swan Armageddon!

Can bad timing end Western Civilization?

In the Black Autumn collapse, a series of random hiccups combine to drag down the delicate systems of modern society. Social media-fueled civil disorder, a nuke attack, a power grid hack and a stock market wobble send the high-strung markets into a three-day death spiral.

Possible? Read the series and find out for yourself.
