Guest Blog with Jacqueline Paige

It’s not surprising that my writing finally ventured into post-apocalyptic genre. Some of my favorite movies have always been about that. 

My top ten favorite post-apocalyptic movies

The Postman (1997)

After all the hundreds and hundreds of movies I’ve watched in my life, this one has always stuck with me.  I’m not sure if it’s because of Kevin’s acting throughout it or if somewhere in the back of my mind I can see this happening.

Waterworld (1995)

This movie felt like I was watching Mad Max, only it was on water instead of land. Kudos to the writers for taking us to new places.

I am legend (2007)

I loved the Will’s acting in this one and being a huge fan of The Walking Dead (the comics in 2003 before it became a cool show) it’s just a given that I would like this movie.

Red Dawn (1984 & 2012)

When I watched the original I was a teen and can’t say I was overly concerned about the premise of the movie – look at the actors in it and how young and good looking they were…
I don’t usually enjoy remakes of movies, but I did like the 2012 version of this one.  I’m all about the unsuspecting underdog whooping butt, so this one old or new will always be a favorite of mine.

Reign of Fire (2002)

Matthew McConaughey, Gerard Butler, Christian Bale and dragons — I’m there!

City of Ember (2008)

I originally watched this because my kids wanted me to and was surprised how much I liked it. It was different than all the other movies of this genre and well, I want to ride on the boat/locker…

Mad max (1979)

I wasn’t allowed to watch this when it came out, my parents thought it was inappropriate for my age.  By the time I did get to see it I was a teen and watched the sequels as well.  So much chaos. It scared me, because I thought for if an apocalypse happened this is what it would be like.

Ultaviolet (2006)

Who doesn’t like a movie where a woman kicks ass? 

War of the worlds (2005)

I think I prefer zombies to aliens, but I still liked this movie.  I kind of a fan of chaos…

2012 (2009)

All I could think through this whole movie was “you abuse it- you lose it” … that I need to learn how to fly a plane, maybe a hot air balloon…

After the Silence - Bree
Part 4
Jacqueline Paige

One woman’s journey through the chaotic new world.

Those left standing make the paths for the future generations.

Those the planet allowed to live still have to survive the trials of the virus. If you manage to come out of it alive you are left with some form of mutation that could give you an ability that could be harmless or lethal.

Bree Taylor is the last survivor of her family. With no other choice she sets off on her own to escape the clutches of the new government’s army—that does not place safety and security in their code of behavior only the highest bidder get their protection and loyalty.

 The entire volume 1 will be released as one book in January 2015.

First part of volume 2 (Kane's story) is TBR in November 2014

About the Author:

Jacqueline Paige lives in Ontario in a small town that’s part of the popular Georgian Triangle area.  No one has ever heard of Stayner, so she usually tells people she lives “near Collingwood” and no, she doesn’t ski at Blue Mountain or at all, in fact she’s not even fond of snow. 

She began her writing career in 2006 and since her first published works in 2009 she hasn’t stopped.  Jacqueline describes her writing as “all things paranormal”, which she has proven is her niche with stories of witches, ghosts, physics and shifters now on the shelves.

When Jacqueline isn’t working at her ‘reality job’ or lost in her writing she spends time with her five children, most of whom are finally able to look after her instead of the other way around.  Together they do random road trips, that usually end up with them lost,  shopping trips where they push every button in the toy aisle, hiking when there’s enough time to escape and bizarre things like creating new daring recipes in the kitchen. She’s a grandmother to four (so far) and looks forward to corrupting many more in the years to come.

Jacqueline loves to hear from her readers, you can find her at ,  or
