And not by choice.
Sure, I’ve always had a dark sense of humor. But it wasn’t until my first child was born that I started taking a hard look at the world and wondering, what does the future look like? And the more I pay attention, the more nothing seems certain anymore.
Every website I went to in search of answers was more boring than the last. They were all super right-wing (not me!) or dense and complicated.
I just wanted to know — WTF is a disaster plan?
I started Here Comes the Apocalypse because it was so goddamn hard to find out the answer to that question. As an overwhelmed parent of young children, I didn’t have the time to dig through website after website sorting through the information. I needed concrete steps that I could follow. I needed practical advice that didn’t assume I was ready to build a bunker.
I didn’t want to be a prepper — I just wanted to be prepared.
So I wrote the Disaster Playbook — a guide that breaks down how to prepare for emergencies, wrapped in fun and terrible jokes. Because that’s what I needed and couldn’t find. And I knew I couldn’t be the only one who wants to get prepared, but needs a funny friend to light the way.
I invite you to join me. Take the first step and start preparing today.
The more of us who are prepared, the stronger we will be when a disaster comes our way.
