The world is on fire. From the ashes like a phoenix rises a new America, one that will save it all. Under one condition; absolute and complete surrender.
The world complies without question. Those who don’t are destroyed. It is in this world, John is born. His very name is treason.
If the New America, now known to everyone as the State, knew what John was, they’d kill him, but instead they give him a gift.
Praise for Rebels
John has a lot of potential (especially for someone so young) in that he sees the flaws in this society. He wants to be like George Washington and knows a lot about the manner in which a government should be run… Highly recommended. ~Amazon Review
About the Authors
Scott Powell was born in Burlington, Vermont, to a father who was a police officer and a mother who emigrated from South Korea. He received a degree in marketing from the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, and a master’s degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Scott served a two-year Spanish-speaking mission for his church. He is a mixed martial artist who continues to train with his father, a second-degree black belt in Tae kwon do and a kick boxer.
Besides being married to Scott for over seventeen years, Judith Powell is a stay-at-home mom whose whole life has been full of stories. Being raised by an Irish storytelling father and a Native American mother, stories have filled her life and her head until they finally had no choice but to flow out through her fingertips.

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?
We both loved Ender’s Game
Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?
It’s My Life by Bonjovi
What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?
Always be on your honeymoon (with the understanding you’re not single)
How long do you generally let a story idea ‘marinate’ in your brain before you start the book?
We always write every idea down right away. Over the next couple days if we don’t have the ending then we will move onto something else.
We have two cats one crazy Siamese that is never quiet and a pure black Bombay that likes to tip over your glass of water to see what’s inside (very annoying).
Perry Potter (Siamese) we believe is part goat (eats rubber bands, paper and who knows what else) and likes to hug and Blaze (Bombay) who plays fetch better than most dogs He actually brings back the pipe cleaner ball to you after you have thrown it. He will bark at the Siamese when he gets real angry at him, we think he has an identity issue.
Do you have any weird or interesting rituals you do to get into writing mode or while you’re writing.
Judith – I like to pull out a puzzle to work on as I write.
Scott – likes to work out first, it helps get his energy up to help him focus on the story at hand.
Do you write as you go or do you have the book all planned out from page 1?
We always write the ending first and then reverse engineer the story from there.
Most embarrassing moment?
Judith – I was 11 and singing in church when my slip underneath my dress fell off. No one would have known because I was behind the stand. But I stopped singing to pick up my slip and dove into my mother’s arms in embarrassment.
Scott – when I was around eight or so I decided to play with matches which in the process caught the rug on fire and decided in wisdom to use Kleenex to put it out (yeah not a well thought out plan). Let’s say that a nice burn mark was left, I tried to rearrange the furniture to hide the damage but having a father who was a police detective at the time obviously noticed the change and discovered my new art work. Thus ensured my imprisonment on the Rock (that’s what we named our experience with my dad until my escape after graduating highschool).
Do your characters really talk to you?
Yes, they really do. Sometimes it’s like watching a movie and my pen is the film. Other time it’s like listening to an old radio program.
