Philosophical fiction, wrapped in a political thriller, with a sci-fi/romance twist. OFF GRID is a wild ride through a dystopian near future.
First COVID-19, now terrorist attacks. With the economy failing, the Feds employ every power of the Welfare and Surveillance State to control the populace. A key tool is PivPal, an indispensable smartphone used to track citizens. As civil liberties crumble, resistance is relegated to flyover country whose residents—derided as off-gridders—cling to the time-honored virtues of freedom, self-reliance, and charity.
Against this backdrop, Jenny Hernandez struggles to keep her rural church community nourished and safe. Hiding from the Feds, a team of inventors, and Jenny’s ex, arrive to complete the amazing plasma drive. They bring hope, but also the watchful eye of Big Brother. From the halls of D.C. to the remote wilderness of Upper Michigan, OFF GRID explores the trajectories of community, statism, and revolution in a fragmenting America.
