Seven years after the Strangers decimated the planet, Joad is one of the Remaining, the few left unharmed when most of humanity was obliterated. He was halfway around the world when disaster struck and has been trying ever since to get home to Nemo, where he prays his wife waits for him.

Days from his destination, Joad’s thrown off-course by four merciless brothers who glide across The Flats in a pirate ship. In his escape, Joad reluctantly gains new companions. Together, they journey through a landscape equally beautiful and haunting, mysterious and magical--including The Fields, the deadly territory between them and Nemo. Filled with hope, horror, and wonder; The Seventh Day presents a world we haven’t yet encountered but could just be around the corner.

Meet the Author

Scott Shepherd was born in New York City but moved to California around the time he first started crawling. He has resided in the Golden State pretty much ever since. Growing up in Los Angeles, he saw plenty of movies and Dodger games before heading up north to get his B.A. in English at Stanford University.

Scott is a veteran writer/producer/show-runner with years of experience running network series, having overseen hundreds of hours of television. His extensive list of credits includes some of the most popular hit series from the past three decades: "The Equalizer", "Miami Vice", "Quantum Leap", "Tru Calling" and "The Dead Zone" to name a few. He has also collaborated with a number of best-selling novelists on various television projects including Stephen King, Harlan Coben and Karin Slaughter.

He is also currently teaching television writing in the graduate program at the University of Texas, Austin. When he isn't trying to make a television deadline, you'll probably find Scott traveling with his wife Holly somewhere -- usually to a big sporting event or wherever Bruce Springsteen is playing.
