about this book: Night of the Purple Moon started out as a screenplay. Back then the working title was MAXY. In brief, an event occurred that killed older teens and adults, leaving a planet of children.

Night of the Purple Moon (NOPM) explores that same theme, but the plot and execution of the story are much different. NOPM still has plenty of adventure and drama, but it also takes time to examine the formation of communities after a cataclysmic event.

I did not think much about audience when I was writing the novel. My goal was to develop strong characters and tell a good story. Because the protagonists are 13-years old, the novel falls within the middle grade/young-adult genre, but to me it's still a story for any age reader.

For background...

For months, astronomers have been predicting that Earth will pass through the tail of a comet. They say that people will see colorful sunsets and, best of all, a purple moon.

But nobody has predicted the lightning-fast epidemic that sweeps across the planet on the night of the purple moon. The comet brings space dust with it that contains germs that attack human hormones. Older teens and adults die within hours of exposure.

On a small island off the coast of Maine, Abby Leigh and a group of children struggle to survive in this new world, but all the while they have inside them a ticking time bomb — adolescence.
