An Australian outback escape novel, an RV motorhome, a world apocalypse - "THE HERO VIRUS"

This time the mystery isn't ancient Egypt, but the Australian outback (the nearest thing to outer space...)

On Amazon Kindle (click here to sample)

it was amazing

Hero Virus

GOODREADS: "THE HERO VIRUS" “5 stars for being so different from other apocalypse books."

“What an interesting story. Reading their blogs and each viewpoint was unique. I felt like I was with them on their journey.”


Fear spreads like a disease, but what if heroism swept the population like a contagious virus that eliminated caution, the basic survival switch in the amygdala of the brain?

The contagion began with the arrival of meteorites that flashed down around the globe, spreading clouds of dust and a mysterious agent.

Those infected rise up and challenge the law and the system. They run suicide gauntlets across busy highways, stand high on ledges and tops of buildings, front enemies they once feared, spark reprisals, conflict and bloodshed in the streets - and raise the threat of reckless wars between nations.

The ‘Hero Virus.’

One man – a rarity – is unaffected. He is a frightened man, an anxiety sufferer and returned Afghanistan war hero recovering from serious post-traumatic stress disorder. He decides to flee crazy civilization in an RV motorhome, along with his wife and children, and journey across the rugged wilderness of Australia to find a safe haven - a sanctuary, where people shelter in dug out dwellings beneath the ground. He keeps a secret Treatment Journal and photos of how he is traveling with his condition.

Can a frightened former hero save his loved ones in a world where the brave end up dead? And will the world find an answer to the ‘hero virus’ from space?
