Rachel Parker in Into the End can IDENTIFY fear, she can DEFINE it, but she doesn’t feel it. Not anymore. Not since the tests.
Her inability to feel fear may be the reason why the rest of America is screaming in terror.
America’s end is near.
No one knows why, but the great country is under attack.
After being weakened by countless natural disasters, America opens its airspace for aid. But instead, what is left of the devastated west coast finds itself nearly obliterated from above. The key may belong to tests designed by a Pacific Northwest psychologist, Rachel Parker.
Rachel loses the love of her life in a house fire as they escape with their children to the nearby Rocky Mountains following the first round of air raids. In refuge, she faces her husband’s best friend, Joshua, but doesn’t want to face his ill-harbored feelings or her own inability to face fear.
Her sister, Brenda, escapes the fallen city, and, mistaken for Rachel, is captured. Terrified and alone, Brenda is protected by the enigmatic Daniel even while he helps keep her captive. Through torture and mind games, Brenda discovers information about her sister’s work that could spin the free world into a tumultuous frenzy where the unknown is safer than reality.

Allies = All Lies
America is burning. The unknown blinds the citizens from fighting.
Dr. Rachel Parker’s worst psychological designs are loosed on America by an unknown enemy. She leaves the safety of the mountains for the destruction of town to face her co-designer, Daniel, whose role is blurred by the smoke of deception. Captured by militia, Rachel has to find the answers she’s seeking. She’s not prepared to look within her own damaged mind for the solutions. Rachel’s frame of sanity and emotional stability lay on the line parallel to the country’s circumstances.
Brenda Krous, Rachel’s sister, possesses information that could change the face of the war. Sacrifices to get there become more and more personal until the “Brenda” she was and the “Brenda” she is becoming hit a crossroads. If she finds the compassion to help her sister, her patriotism to the nation might be sacrificed.

Fetish or Obsession? Help me decide!
So before you think this is some journey into the land of Shades, I want to make it clear we’re talking about FOOD. Yes, the four letter F-word that can be evil or sooooo good.
How can food be evil? Seriously? How about when it sticks around longer than necessary. It clings to my hips, my posterior, my stomach, sometimes my back – oh yuck. I then have to do something terrible, workout.
And of course you know how it can be good – tasty pastries, hearty pastas, rich casseroles (oh, manna!), thick steaks with pink middles, baked potatoes, French fries, macaroni and cheese, omelets, bacons and hams, French toast (oh, man, I’m detailing, I’m spiraling! My support group will be so disappointed.), and pancakes. Just listing these has filled my mouth with so much drool, I might have to eat something!
So here is my question for you, what I need help with.
Am I obsessed with food, when I’m asked to write a blog post and all I can talk about is food? Or is it more of a fetish, when I’m considering the different ways I’d like to make that egg and bacon or the variations of sauce for the noodles in the pan?
Am I cursed instead?
Here’s another hint about my food love to help you decide. In every book, I mention food – whether in detail or in passing, I acknowledge the need for food, but I also add a bit of a love for it, too. Oh and did I mention that when I give birth to children (my 6th will be this August), I have to plan the food the day before so that I have a phenomenal breakfast? I get induced so this is doable. It’s more important than what I take to the hospital, seriously…
So, here is a comparison – if a person talks about sex all the time – like I talk about food – is it an addiction? An obsession? A fetish? Or just healthy talk? What about their hobby?
Which do you think mine is and do you have anything relatable to my food passion? I’d love to hear in the comments! Don’t forget to sign up for the giveaway!
And thank you so, so, so much for having me on here! I had a blast!
