Hi, I'm Randi. I hope you liked my book. I have spent many wonderful hours walking the streets of San Francisco, but have never lived there. I actually live in Southern California, where it is warmer. We get our share of earthquakes here as well.
I am a bit of a health nut and go running, paddling, or hit the gym almost every day. I try to eat mostly healthy, and buy a lot of organic groceries. When/if the big one hits where I live, being a healthy person may or may not matter. It figures to help in a survival situation, but giant crevices opening in the earth are indiscriminate in whom they swallow up. Come to think of it, maybe I will go out for a burger. I wish you a blessed day.
Living in San Francisco has been wonderful for the Welles and Dyer families, next-door neighbors and best friends who are so close that they are really like one big family. Jim Welles is a successful lawyer, and Bob Dyer is a geologist – a profession which is about to become useful in a way nobody ever wanted it to be.
Their sons are two teenage boys who are scheduled to play in a state championship baseball game Saturday, on the Oakland side of the Bay Bridge. Mother Nature has other plans, however. The families are not the only things that get separated when an earth-shaking event shocks the nation.
In this 44,250 word Novella, Randi Hart tells a story of what it is like to feel helpless and isolated, when people who have been living a perfect, comfortable life are suddenly thrown into the chaotic uncertainty of coping in the wake of a national disaster which is unprecedented in scale.
