Project Peak Oil (in progress)
The novel is set in the border regions (US/Mexico and US/Canada) of near-future North America. Structurally the novel moves back and forth between a time where access to oil is limited and a time where oil—and the world it produced—is almost a memory. The characters include a community of preppers, a Métis woman and her half-brother, a multigenerational Mexican family who have a long history of moving people and things from one side of the border to the other, and man who continues to have access to oil as he engages in the lucrative business of human trafficking.
