NYT and USA Today bestselling author Norma Hinkens writes fast-paced science fiction and fantasy about spunky heroines, epic adventures, and dangerous worlds. She grew up among rich storytelling traditions in her native Ireland, land of make-believe and the original little green man. A globetrotter at heart, she settled in California and began scribbling down the yarns that have been brewing in her head for years. In her spare time she retreats to rural Idaho to hike, bike and boat, but mostly to eavesdrop on mountain men and prepare for the apocalypse. If you like heart-stopping sagas, gritty heroines, and twists

Where did the idea for The Undergrounders Series come from?
I've always been fascinated by regimes and resistance movements, and the heroes who emerge from atrocities. I grew up reading every concentration camp escape story I could get my hands on. As an author, I find it intriguing to place characters in post-apocalyptic settings and watch what unfurls inside them as they go head to head with staggering odds. After spending several summers in Idaho, and learning more about Preppers and survivalists, the idea to plant Derry Connolly in a bunker community of homesteaders and mountain men took seed and The Undergrounders Series was born. It's prepper survival fiction meets science fiction dystopian!

Here are some of my favorite fittest heroines from 2017 and why I find them inspirational, whether they’re physically, mentally, o...
