Guest Blog with Jacqueline Paige

When I started writing After the Silence, I wanted to explore how survivors would manage after climate chaos, particularly a young woman on her own.

What I didn’t plan was finding so many other characters whose stories needed to be told.  I’m presently working on volume two which is Kane’s story.

I also didn’t plan on real live instances of horrific disasters happening.  It’s a scary thing when events you put in your book start to come true.

I had plotted a large portion of Bree’s story and was well into the writing when the disasters began happening in the real world.

When the Earthquake and Tsunami hit Japan in 2011 I was mildly freaked out because a few days before that I’d written something very similar.

I did take some parts our after that, just skimmed the basics of happenings because I’d like my readers to enjoy the story and not relive a real life disaster.

If something like that happens again and what I write starts happening, I promise to start writing stories that are about everyone living in a perfect paradise world where nothing bad ever happens…maybe that will come true!

Thanks for having me here today!

After the Silence - Bree
Part 4
Jacqueline Paige

One woman’s journey through the chaotic new world.

Those left standing make the paths for the future generations.

Those the planet allowed to live still have to survive the trials of the virus. If you manage to come out of it alive you are left with some form of mutation that could give you an ability that could be harmless or lethal.

Bree Taylor is the last survivor of her family. With no other choice she sets off on her own to escape the clutches of the new government’s army—that does not place safety and security in their code of behavior only the highest bidder get their protection and loyalty.

 The entire volume 1 will be released as one book in January 2015.

First part of volume 2 (Kane's story) is TBR in November 2014

About the Author:

Jacqueline Paige lives in Ontario in a small town that’s part of the popular Georgian Triangle area.  No one has ever heard of Stayner, so she usually tells people she lives “near Collingwood” and no, she doesn’t ski at Blue Mountain or at all, in fact she’s not even fond of snow. 

She began her writing career in 2006 and since her first published works in 2009 she hasn’t stopped.  Jacqueline describes her writing as “all things paranormal”, which she has proven is her niche with stories of witches, ghosts, physics and shifters now on the shelves.

When Jacqueline isn’t working at her ‘reality job’ or lost in her writing she spends time with her five children, most of whom are finally able to look after her instead of the other way around.  Together they do random road trips, that usually end up with them lost,  shopping trips where they push every button in the toy aisle, hiking when there’s enough time to escape and bizarre things like creating new daring recipes in the kitchen. She’s a grandmother to four (so far) and looks forward to corrupting many more in the years to come.

Jacqueline loves to hear from her readers, you can find her at ,  or
