My novel, The Second Horseman, shows a politically divided United States heading toward civil war. Since its release in 2017 there has been speculation that our country is about to be torn apart by a second civil war. Can such a catastrophic event be prevented or has rhetoric and animosity made the outcome inevitable? We soon will have the answers to these questions. In the meantime, I suggest you read The Second Horseman and discover what Bret, E.J. and Mai, who find themselves in the midst of such a crisis, do in order to survive.
