The Effect of an EMP

It’s interesting to me how many people have heard of an EMP, or an electromagnetic pulse. A few years ago, the general public wasn’t quite as aware of this lingering technological threat on America, but now it seems as if every news station and publication has been talking about it at some point. An EMP essentially wipes out all modern technology that is electronically based, like computers and cell phones. It throws everyone back to the stone age. As a writer, the concept of an EMP was fascinating, and of course, it led to the premise of The Collapse Series.

Without computers, without cell phones and without vehicles, the modern world would basically come to a sudden, shocking halt. It was a concept that I wanted to explore. I was always enamored with books like Lord of the Flies when I was in high school. Yes, I was that kid. The one who loved to examine society and what would happen to it if suddenly we were no longer organized or “safe.” (Yes, Sociology was my favorite subject in college!)

An EMP would affect everyone, rich or poor. It would change the face of the world, and that is exactly the environment that Cassidy Hart and Chris Young are forced to contend with.
