Great Experience!

What a surprise to find an author who can write AND narrate so well. If you like authenticity in Prepper fiction, its here in spades. I bought the series on kindle because I can’t wait for the next podcast. Hoping Mic continues to author great reads and narrate them as only he can. Great talent!
