I was born in October of 1970 in California but have lived in northern Nevada since 1977. At an early age, I was bitten by the Fireman bug. In the spring of 1988 I joined the local volunteer fire department. I served in several different capacities from Firefighter I, EMT-B, Engine Operator, Safety Officer, Training Officer, Engine Captain and Type III Incident Commander. I retired on 01-01-11. During the summer of 1989, I found myself joining up with a government contracted engine strike team. I also served with them in different positions that mirrored my volunteer service with the exception of becoming a Strike Team Leader. With 5 Type III engines, two water tenders and two service vehicles under my control, I had to quickly learn how to deal with the "human" element. I must have done okay because they kept asking me to come back to work for them. That lasted until the season ended in 1999. Now with a wife and family of my own, I made the move into the private sector where I worked at various security and warehouse jobs. Very early on, I learned that job security was pretty much a thing of the past. With that lesson, I learned about prepping. It may sound odd to tie the two together but I always had something in reserve for when I was out of work. Now, I never stayed out of work for very long but it did happen. At first I thought I was nuts. Why store food and water? Ammo and firearms? I mean, really? The world was a pretty stable place. Money still had a way of coming in and the bills were getting paid, so why the prepping? One day I decided to talk to my dear friend about my newfound obsession. All he did was grin from ear to ear and welcome me to the dark side! Turns out, he was a prepper too! I've been at it now for a couple of decades and you may think that is what led me to write my own book. Well, it wasn't. The story of Jason Sterling has been bouncing around in my head since about 1987ish. It's gone through so many changes that I can't even begin to tell you. All I DO know is that it's something that I've wanted to do for a very, very long time. There are so many half written manuscripts in my storage shed that it's just ridiculous. In September of 2016, I sat down with my laptop and started writing. The story that unfolded in my head and on the computer screen is what I submitted to Amazon a year later. Of course, there were re-writes and the inevitable writers block, but I managed to work my way through that with the help and support of my beautiful wife, Denise. Even when she was struggling with the hellish side-effects of chemotherapy, she stood strong and let me bounce ideas off of her. ***UPDATE*** Well, Book IV has hit the ground running and guess what.....
