About the book...
Jemma has spent her life scavenging tools and supplies for her tribe in the their small enclave outside what used to be a big city. Now she’s a teen, and old enough to become a Mama. Making babies is how her people survive—in Jemma’s world, life ends at age seventeen.
Survival has eclipsed love ever since the Parents died of a mysterious plague. But Jemma’s connection to a boy named Apple is stronger than her duty as a Mama. Forced to leave, Jemma and Apple are joined in exile by a mysterious boy who claims to know what is causing them to die. The world is crumbling around them, and their time is running out. Is this truly the End?
The People of Ell Aye
Mayfly is set in the land of Ell Aye, a once-mighty city now in ruins. The old divisions of the past are gone, and in their place new peoples have emerged, each with their own origins and unique cultures.
The dominant people of Ell Aye, they are a largely peaceful female-led society who live primarily in the hills. They are made of four interrelated peoples:
The Holy Wood
The oldest Angeleno settlement, on the shores of the Lake of the Holy Wood and the old Holy Wood sign.
The farthest west of the Angelenos, who live in the mountains next to the ocean of Malibu.
The Downtown guard the former towers of Ell Aye as sacred ground and live in a giant stadium in a ravine.
The San Fernandos
The San Fernandos live in the great valley north of the Holy Wood and frequently compete with the Holy Wood for scarce resources.
The Last Lifers
A feral band of Children who’ve gone mad in anticipation of their early deaths; they live throughout Ell Aye in violence and chaos because they fear no consequences.
The Palos (The Biters)
A cannibal society from the smoking Palos Verdes peninsula, they are Ell Aye’s most feared enemy. They are intelligent, vicious, and well armed.
The Ice Cream Men
A wandering tribe of traders who travel on three-wheeled ice cream carts, the Ice Cream Men know all the peoples in Ell Aye.
A mighty civilization built by former gang members, the Kingdom occupies a huge castle fortress in Orange County, the OC.
About the author...
He grew up in Idaho as the middle of eight children—seven boys and one girl—and attended Columbia University in New York. Jeff lives in a big blue house in Los Angeles with his wife Sunny and their three kids, two cats, and a racing greyhound.
He loves to travel and writes everywhere he goes, even when there's not a desk. He likes karaoke, motorcycles and carpentry. He was once shot in the head with a nail gun, which was not a big of a deal as it sounds. But it still hurt like crazy.
Up for grabs...an ARC of MAYFLY!
