#1 Bestselling Author

 

    Author of the bestselling EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots Series.  Within a single month, EMP: A Story of Survival rose to Amazon’s Top Ten Bestseller’s List in both Post-Apocalyptic and Dystopian genres where it stayed for almost four months.  The book has received over 500 positive reviews while maintaining a 4½ Star rating on Amazon.

    Jonathan decided to pen EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots after reading numerous prepping manuals and prepper fiction that were offering terrible advice from “experts” who had no professional survival experience or even a basic understanding of the sociological impacts of food deprivation and extreme environments. His EMP series was written in a fictional format yet offers valuable life-saving recommendations throughout the story which can be implemented should a breakdown in society come to pass.  

     In April 2015, Jonathan released the sequel "EMP: The Aftermath" to rave reviews.  In April 2016, he released a preparedness manual called "Survival Theory".  Survival Theory later went on to become the #1 best-seller in Survival and Emergency Preparedness Genre on Amazon and all four of his books inside the top-10 in their prospective genres!

    In November 2017 he released the third book in the EMP series, "New Beginnings".  He also co-authored a book called "Alone: Beth Ann's Story of Survival" which follows the Beth Ann character from the EMP series and is written from a woman's perspective. 

 

 

Survival Theory Bestseller

Military veteran

 

    Graduated as one of the few and elite S.E.R.E. Instructors in the Air Force, managed and was accountable for the lives and the training of 100+ students while they were put in the harshest weather environments and confronted with food and sleep deprivation.  Although in charge of personnel that usually far out-ranked and were much older, maintained professionalism resulting in not one negative critique during three years as a Survival Instructor.

    SERE Instructors are trained in every major climatic condition: arctic, desert, tropical, ocean and temperate.  They must complete intensive training in the following areas: wilderness living, shelter construction, fire building, map and compass navigation, backpacking, food and water procurement, wilderness medicine and first aid, signaling and rescue techniques, escape and evasion, conduct after capture, and the techniques needed for instructing all of these skills.
