My latest entry into the literary world, “Roland; Reluctant Paladin” is now available on Amazon! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q731XIM
From the description;
Roland Stang never intended to become the caretaker of thirty abandoned children. He was just looking for a place to get out of the rain. His plan was to lay low and allow the world to reset itself after a world wide economic collapse. But, things do change. An orphan himself from an early age, the former soldier can’t simply walk away and leave the children he finds. Especially once he realizes what a sorry lot of adults is nominally in charge of the group in the warehouse he’s taken shelter in.
But now, he’s got his hands full, and then some. He has to find a home for those children, and a way to feed, clothe, and educate them. All while protecting them from people who would prey on them in one way or another, and while protecting his own back from an angry woman who apparently hates him just because. Her only redeeming feature as far as Roland is concerned? She wants to protect the children as much as he does.
Leading a handful of teens and a busload of orphaned children, Roland sets out to find a safe haven for them. Along the way he’ll make friends, enemies, and the odd mistake or two. Or more. Roland isn’t exactly parenting material, either. With problems of his own to deal with, maybe taking on so much extra responsibility wasn’t the smartest thing he’s ever done. Then again, Roland has always been stubborn.
Roland is just over 138,000 words of post-collapse survival.
Here’s wishing you all a safe and happy holiday weekend!
