John’s Story

PFD Story TitleTrust
PFD Chapter: Six
Main Characters: Dangerella, a teen who crosses paths with a homeless man named Earl



“Well, see here, this is how it go. If you don’t make it, I want to know what to call the redheaded baby doll that fell through my roof and died on my floor. I’ve cleaned up too many dead folk already with no names. Or no names that I knew, anyhow.”

“Oh,” she bit her lip. “Dangerella.”



How does Prep For Doom compare to other things you’ve written? 

It was my first time directly involved with other writers in the project, instead of just writing my own thing.

What is your favorite thing about this project? 

It was an exciting joy ride to blindly collaborate with other very talented writers. I was honored to have had my story chosen. And I’m humbled by their collective talent.

Do you or does anyone you know prep for disasters?

I once knew a guy who did disaster planning for the government. That’s about it.

Have you ever experienced a major disaster that made you think about end of the world scenarios? 

I was in a 7.1 earthquake once, and had to live through a series of aftershocks. It made me fell very helpless.

What do you think would be the scariest kind of apocalypse?

Where people know something is wrong, but they don’t know why, and they can’t communicate with each other.

Tell us one thing people don’t know about you or might be surprised to find out?

I’m a lifelong gamer, and was actually written into a video game.

Tell us a little about your Prep For Doom character(s) and story.

Dangerella is a little slip of a girl, but she’s dangerous. Maybe her emotions make her dangerous, maybe they make her more vulnerable. Earl  looks like a homeless man. Looks are deceiving. Whom do you trust?
