Jack Bauer and Vanessa Michael Munroe are Joining Me for the Apocalypse

I’m a big fan of Taylor Stevens and her newest book comes out today. She started several years ago with The Informationist and introduced Vanessa Michael Munroe to the world. Since then I’ve been hooked not only on the character and the story, but on the author as well. Stevens is one of the most personable and friendly best-selling authors I’ve ever had the opportunity to know.

Stevens’ new book got me to thinking, who would I want with me in the apocalypse? For now, I’ll stick with just three names, because each of these names comes with their own team as well. If you want to survive the first 72 hours, and then the first 90 days, and beyond, you’ll need people like this around.

1. Vanessa Michael Munroe- She’s a survivor, no matter what the conditions. Her chameleon-like ability to blend in would help anywhere. She’s deadly and also possesses skills that don’t require any tech whatsoever.

2. Michael Weston of Burn Notice- Michael and his team can figure their way into or out of any situation from the mundane to the hyper-dangerous. Their great at improvisation with whatever’s lying around. They’d also be fun to have around. Just be sure to keep the yogurt and beer stocked.

3. Jack Bauer from 24- Jack is the guy you want in a pinch. Every group needs a heavy hitter prepared to do whatever is necessary to survive. Jack’s that guy. In the show he tends to rely heavily on tech, but I think he’d do okay once tech is gone.

PS…I’m a minimalist, so I don’t keep too many books on my shelf once I read them. Stevens’ books stay right there, right beside my dog-eared copy of Fight Club.
