Hello lovers of apocalyptic thrillers!

I devour the same books I enjoy writing: science fiction, but especially anything apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic or dystopian. I love stories about regular people being thrust into extra ordinary circumstances, and having to rely on their own cunning and that of others to survive.

MADNESS Chronicles (JUST RELEASED), as well as the Highway & Stone Age Series are those kind of stories. They're fast moving, have some regular (and amazing) characters who must make life changing decisions, all while the world is experiencing an apocalypse.

When not writing or reading fiction, my wife and I split time between Arizona and the sunny beaches of Mexico. I also write for a few blogs, and I still write articles to ass

CICADA was first releaased as if it was it’s own series (within the Stone Age World), because it was written without the need to read the other books. But this also didn’t make sense, because it was a continuation of the Stone Age story, of which there were other parts being added. So, it was relaunched as part of the series. This the current Stone Age Series chronologically:
#1: Stone Age
#2: Desolation
#3: Hell’s Requiem (released last year)
#4: CICADA
#5: ?

If Amazon allowed it, add in #3.5: Time Slip. This was a stand alone novelette set in the Stone Age world, which offers some additional incite into the overall story, but can be read outside of the story as well.

The final book of the Stone Age Series has not been completed. Yet. The story deserves its proper conclusion. I just don’t know when that will be. But it will happen, and not too long from now.(less)

Glad to hear you enjoyed Time Slip.

The Stick has not been released. However, I am releasing a short novel which will feature Scarface, the same hitman in Time Slip. I'll post the expected availability of this new novel in a few weeks.

Thanks for reading and for your question!(less)

M.L. Banner answered a question about The Final Outbreak:
The Final Outbreak by M.L. Banner
I wanted "The Ultimate Last Final Outbreak," but the publisher held the line, saying it sounded too absolute. The description now reflects the actual title, "The Final Outbreak", and amazingly... the discount is still there too. Enjoy!
The Final Outbreak by M.L. Banner
"Well researched and written

Great characters to follow through a very well written plot.
Horrible circumstances interspersed with some clever humour at times.
I think Horror not thriller would be a better description.
Looking forward to reading more fr" Read more of this review »

“several seagulls somehow became confused in flight and hit the side of his house,”
M.L. Banner, Stone Age

“It’s a Barrett .50-caliber sniper rifle. It can hit a target at 2600 meters.” Max picked it up by a handle connected to the middle top of the rifle. “Holy Christ! That’s like a mile away.” Bill had already forgotten the secret passage and room, which was obviously where Max kept a lot of supplies. Now, he was completely focused on the monster gun. “A little jackrabbit hunting?” he joked. “Ha. Not unless you like your jackrabbits in little tiny clumps. This is for killing someone a long way away, before he or she becomes a threat to you. Before the Barrett, only death and taxes were sure things.” Max grinned at his quip but then continued with purpose.”
M.L. Banner, Stone Age

“I’ll give you all I got to give if you say you’ll love me too. I may not have a lot to give but what I got I’ll give to you. I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love.” - Can’t Buy Me Love, Lennon - McCartney”
M.L. Banner, Time Slip
