Tim Van Sickel is a Christian, husband, stepfather and grandfather. He is also a business man and is active in his church. He grew up in Pittsburgh and currently resides in Johnstown, PA. He is a life long avid reader, and keeps informed of current events. He spent eight years as an infantry officer in the National Guard and is a graduate of Penn State University. He is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying both hunting and fishing. 

He has desired to write a book in the post apocalyptic genre for several years, but could never get the setting right. In late winter of 2016, the right venue was revealed to Tim, and in his words, "God inspired me to right this novel." Before that day was over, the main characters had been developed and the story line was set. He wrote the first chapter that night, and has not quite writing since. He feels the storyline will take at least six books to complete, and the second book is almost ready for editing. 

Tim has invested the time and expense of having his books professionally edited. You will find his works captivating and challenging in their realism. You will literally think, "My God, this could really happen," as you read this descriptive saga of societal collapse after an EMP strike.
