Theresa Alt introduces debut novel, ‘Survival Skills’

Science-fiction tale follows young woman as she navigates new world

MARION, Iowa – With the help of her professor, Dr. Franklin, and her best friend, Ashley, Christy survives a change in the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere that wipes out most of the world’s population. After Christy discovers that Dr. Franklin’s new rule prevents her from helping those most in need, she and Ashley leave the fledgling community and set out in search of their families.

In “Survival Skills” (published by WestBow Press), Christy wades through this new and unfamiliar world and struggles to find new purpose for her life. With Ashley and God by her side, Christy will overcome as she searches for her lost family.

Focused on the strength of friendship and family, author Theresa Alt wants every reader to see that they are created for a purpose and that the notion of “home” can have many meanings.

“It is my hope that when you read Survival Skills you are reminded that God created you for a purpose and that, no matter how dark things appear, God is still working on our world,” Alt says.
