She is also an avid gardener, cook, fisherman and hunter, urban homesteader, and GMO labeling advocate in love with self-sufficiency. Her current residence is the great state of Alaska, where she was born and now lives with her husband and two wonder

I wrote this as a futuristic novel, but the reader is, of course, welcome to interpret the novel in any way they please :)

Kevin has done a wonderful service for anyone wishing to create a video with musical accompaniment. I donated on his website, and will again when I create future videos using his musical talent.

Paul Thank you!
This is a book, that should I not win, I will probably have to purchase. Although I can't obviously know the story beforehand, I like the idea and the concept of a botanical holocaust (as a story... the real thing would surely horify me) and the steps mankind would take to survive... including canibalism.
The video mention that this started many centuries ago, am I to take it this takes place in a "parallel" time-line? Or do the many centuries ago reflect the perspective of a future person reflecting back on "this" earth?
Anyhow, win or lose, I'm sure you'l be hearing from me at some point down the line.

BTW, I absolutely loved the feeling received from Kevin Macleod's music while watching said video.

Tam Linsey Great to meet you, Paul. I'm glad you liked the video :) Best of luck!
