Author Biography

ML Banner is an award-winning and best-selling author who writes what he loves to read: apocalyptic thrillers which thrust regular people into extra ordinary circumstances, where their actions may determine not only their own fate, but that of the world.

The Highway and Stone Age Series' (including three #1 best-sellers) are those kinds of stories. Not only fast moving, each has regular and amazing characters who have to make life changing decisions, all while the earth is experiencing an apocalyptic event unlike anything imagined.

It is 4th of July and Lexi Broadmoor and her brother Travis are riding on a Florida highway with their father in his Plymouth Duster when shattering glass and sparks of light bring their trip to a sudden stop. For no apparent reason, their father loses control of the vehicle and they crash. Still dazed from the unexpected accident, Lexi realizes that her father is dying, impaled by a traffic sign. No matter how much she had detested him in the past, this is not what she would have wanted. Lexi rushes to her father's side, but he knows he is not going to make it, and he quickly gives her a list of precise instructions of what she has to do from here. Far from home and without someone to protect them, Lexi and Travis start walking, but soon find out that staying alive is up to them and their survival skills. However, with the grid down and chaos quickly spreading throughout the nation, the siblings need to speed up their mission because their car crash was just the beginning.

Authors John Q. Prepper and M.L. Banner have done a magnificent job in crafting a narrative in Highway: A Post-Apocalyptic Tale of Survival that is neither repetitive nor stale. The story-telling, realistic dialogue, along with a lot of terrifying scenarios, bring Highway to its conclusion in a delightful way. The weight of emotion is evident as characters continue to fight for their own survival. Beautifully written, this book is dotted with the tender moments and the horrible reality that come after such an event.


An excellent story. One of the few that that I have had an an emotional response as a result of reading.
