1. Why don’t you introduce yourself! Tell us who you are and what you do.
My name is Genesis. I live inside a bunker that my boyfriend, Jack, calls a snow globe. Our job is to survive the insane seasons that rotate over the course of just a few days inside the snow globe and make sure no one dies. I’m not the head leadership, but I’ve worked my way up over the years. A lot of what I do involves going out and searching for food and things that will help us survive.
2. What is your favorite thing to eat around the holidays?
Honestly, I’ll take whatever food we can find. If Jack and the boys manage to catch a rabbit or fish, we consider ourselves lucky. My friend, Azra, loves when we have enough cattails to make tea and coffee. If we can find fruits, I love eating anything we can creatively make out of those. Eliza and I are pretty good about getting creative. On rare occasion, we make special treats for the kids if we have a particularly good Summer week and find extra food that we don’t need to store.
3. What is on the top of your Wishlist this year?
I want a tablet. Azra and I accidentally found one out in the forest that definitely doesn’t belong inside the snow globe and I’d love to have one of my own to try to use.
4. If you’re expected at a party are you usually on time or fashionably late?
I’m always on time. Jack doesn’t mind strolling in late, unless it’s official business, and then he gets there before I do.
5. What is your fondest memory surrounding the holiday season?
A few years ago, we were reading the kids some of the books we have inside the bunker and they asked about Christmas. We threw them a surprise Christmas party a few days later and it was the best party we’ve ever had inside the bunker. We even made decorations!
6. Are you a fan of eggnog or no?
7. There is mistletoe hanging in the doorway… are you going to kiss the person beside you or not?
8. It’s snowing outside, are you out there playing in it or refusing to step foot outside until the season turns?
9. If you could ask for ANYTHING for Christmas, what would it be and why?
I’d ask for more coats for everyone to wear. We’re in desperate need of more. I’d also like some new books for the children. And maybe an hour of privacy to relax—there’s no hiding away from people in the bunker.
10. What kind of shopper are you? Do you plan ahead of time or do you rush in a last-minute effort?
I’m a planner. I like to know what’s going on, have a plan of attack, and then be very quick and efficient about getting it taken care of.
11. Did you ever believe in Santa? If so, how old were you when you stopped believing?
No, we only heard a few stories about him in the bunker. Of course, if Jack has anything to say about it, we’ll all be believing in fairytales and castles in the sky.
12. Who in your immediate circle is most likely to go caroling?
Jack, Azra, and Eliza are definitely caroling with me. Yes would come because Eliza is there. Nathaniel would probably come to annoy Jack. Really, I think we could convince most of the people inside the bunker to go caroling with us…they like to get out and have fun.
13. If you could cast your acquaintances [including yourself,] in Scrooge, who would play what roles?
Scrooge—Jack. He would ham it up, put on a silly voice, hunch over, and make all the kids giggle at his antics.
Bob Cratchit—Nes. He would love playing the good guy to Jack’s evil Scrooge.
Tiny Tim—I’d like to say Nicholas, but he’s much too shy. Lilly, however, would force her way into this role. She’s very precocious.
Jacob Marley—Azra would absolutely tie her hair back and drop her voice to take on the role of Jacob Marley, chains and all. She’d be nearly as dramatic as Jack.
The Ghost of Christmas Past—Perrin, our resident doctor, would have a ball dressing up as an old school ghost and being all formal about showing off evil deeds of the past…with perfect posture, of course.
The Ghost of Christmas Present—Eliza would make a stunning Ghost of Christmas Present, complete with holly in her hair and gold glitter everywhere, shimmering in the candle light. Yes, she would demand candle light.
The Ghost of Christmas Future—Nathaniel. He would delight in freaking people out and showing them their future.
14. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us?
Ho Ho Ho, did you know all of that about Genesis? Bet you didn’t. Be sure to check out the author’s page as well as social media to ensure you are up to date on Genesis and the rest of the crew!

No one inside the snow globe knows that Morozoko Industries is controlling their weather, testing them to form a stronger race that can survive the fall out from the bombs being dropped in the
outside world—all they know is that they must survive the harsh Winter that lasts a month and use the few days of Spring, Summer, and Fall to gather enough supplies to survive.
When the seasons start shifting, Genesis and her boyfriend, Jack, know something has gone wrong. As their team begins to find technology that they don’t have access to inside their snow globe of a world, it looks more and more like one of their own is working against them.
Genesis soon discovers Morozoko Industries is to blame, but when a foreign enemy tries to destroy their weather program to make sure their destructive life-altering bombs succeed in destroying the outside world, their only chance is to shut down the machine that is spinning out of control and save the lives of everyone inside the bunker–at any cost.
