Local author takes Spokane 'Into the End' of the world | Arts & Culture
Ever imagined what the end of the world would look like? Author Bonnie Paulson did. Into the End is the first book of three in a series chronicling the end of life as we know it in the Pacific Northwest.
“The whole western coast is chopped off because of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, you name it,” said Paulson.
Meanwhile, Spokane and Post Falls have stayed relatively safe from natural disasters, Paulson said.
“If Seattle dropped off the face of the Earth, which in Into the End it does, Fairchild is the only fueling station from here to Asia,” said Paulson. “If someone was coming in to attack you, they would want Fairchild.”
Writing this book gave Paulson nightmares. The story was inspired by an early morning rain storm that resembled fire falling from the sky.
Into the End is Paulson’s second published book. Her first one was the romance novel Breathe Again.
“Into the End is not a paranormal story. It’s set in science and psychology and the need to be prepared,” Paulson wrote on her blog.
Into the End can be purchased for $9.99 in paperback on Amazon or $2.99 on Kindle. Paulson is a fountain of knowledge for new writers in the area. She is the President Elect of the Inland Empire Chapter of the Romance Writers Association.
“All my writing ends up here. This is the best area to live in, raise your kids in and to write about.”
