M.P. McDonald – Kenosha Book Festival 2024

M.P. McDonald is coming to Studio Moonfall’s Kenosha Book Festival 2024 on April 28th, May 26th, and August 25.

M.P. McDonald is the author of thrillers with a psychic twist and a reluctant hero, and post-apocalyptic fiction
centered around saving family. During the day she works as a respiratory therapist, where her first-hand experience with treating those with life-threatening illnesses and injuries gives her stories a realistic touch.
Her cat, Tigerheart, a strict taskmaster, keeps one paw resting (restraining?) on her shoulder to ensure the writing gets done in a timely fashion. She allows a few breaks, but only if M.P. shares her chips.

When not writing, M.P. can usually be found with her nose buried in a book, swimming in the pool if it’s not too cold (but since she lives in SE Wisconsin, it’s too cold most of the time!) or hanging out with family and friends.

Here’s a sneak peek at their book Alone at the End of the World:

As a deadly virus decimates the world’s population, survivors struggle to find each other. After all, nobody wants to be alone at the end of the world.

Thirteen-year-old Ethan should be practicing his skateboard moves, not watching his family members die, one by one. He knows he could become a victim of the evil infection at any minute. Scared and alone, he fills his backpack and goes in search of other survivors, hoping he lives long enough to find someone. Anyone.

When Cassie sees the bodies of neighbors and strangers littering what had been pristine front lawns, she realizes her intense focus on business and family may have saved their lives. How does a single mom and her two kids survive an apocalypse alone?

Noah emerges from his two-week fishing trip in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, shocked to learn that a devastating pandemic has swept the world. Should he venture into the fray to find other survivors or retreat into the woods and isolate himself as long as he can?

When their paths converge, they face a new struggle – learning to trust total strangers as if their very survival depends on it…because it does.

Sympatico Syndrome is intent on sparing no one.
