How Far Will You Go?
The zombie apocalypse is not what the world expected, or in some cases eagerly awaited.
Gingers, the empty, soulless shells of raptured Christians, roam to and fro across an earth afflicted by fire, darkness, and disease, seeking whom they might devour.
For almost four years, twins Sam and Rachel have braved all of these dangers together. Now they will have to face them, and the even greater threat of other survivors, alone.

About the Author
Because I was bored…
I am an engineer by profession, with an ever-growing LEGO collection, what many would [correctly] call an obsession with airplanes, and an interest in post apocalyptic and zombie stories.
The thing that got me into the post apocalyptic genre was seeing people build “apocalego” themed models and vignettes. The engineer in me was intrigued by the problem of surviving and making do with limited resources and whatever else happened to be available. Moving past the tech side of things, there were the political and moral questions regarding the balance of doing what was best for yourself and doing what was right. Thus I began exploring and enjoying post-apocalyptic-and inevitably-zombie fiction. Fast forward a few years and somehow, during engineering school, I had enough time on my hands to become bored. So I began compiling ideas for my personal “ideal” zombie story. The concept of using the rapture as the cause of the zombie apocalypse developed when my church started studying the book of Revelation. This provided a simple, if not convenient, answer to several important questions like “Why aren’t there many good Christian characters in the zombie books I’ve been reading?” and “How could a zombie outbreak be triggered to create the world-wide societal upheaval featured in most stories?” At that point I was positive no one else was ever going to write such a story, meaning it was my responsibility to make it happen. Challenge accepted. I overcame my abhorrence of words and writing (I are an engineer after all), and began piecing this thing together.
Now while this story is entirely fictional, I tried to avoid pulling everything out of left field. I also didn’t want to compress a deep theological analysis of end times prophecy into what was supposed to be a short story. So to clarify what I did and did not make up, I have provided for your analysis, a list of the Biblical references that I used. Some are little more than “resurrection references” (because we all know the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs are evil pagans under the direct employ of the devil), while other verses look more at the environment, plagues, events, and prophecies surrounding the end times.
Again this is purely fiction. I do not believe the bodies of raptured Christians will be turned into demon-possessed zombies and begin munching on people (see James 2:26) . Simply put, almost every zombie story provides a reason justifying the existence of zombies, and mine is the rapture. What I do believe you can read for yourself in Romans 3:23 , John 3:16-18 , and the other 31,098 verses in the Bible .
All these words started as little more than a series of personal challenges to see if I could write a short story about the zombie apocalypse, reference the rapture as the cause, and create a protagonist whose gender is never stated. I had a lot of fun writing this, and since you’ve read this far, I hope you have enjoyed yourself as well, thought about lofty philosophical questions like “What would happen if you died tomorrow?” and maybe got pulled into a heated argument about whether or not the rapture will be pre-or post-tribulation (personally I’m pulling for pre-trib, but that’s just me).
