WASHINGTON, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- With only hours in office, a new president must lead the United States through the greatest crisis it has ever faced. In the innovative novel Rude Awakenings (published by Trafford) by Keith M. Donaldson, newly inaugurated President Mike Macdonald must face the ultimate nightmare: the detonation of a nuclear device on American soil.
In the dramatic opening of Donaldson's political thriller, President Macdonald is awakened early in the morning of his first full day in office. Having gone to bed only a few hours earlier and still reveling in the glory of inaugural celebrations, he is rushed to the White House Situation room already frantic with activity. From there Rude Awakenings leads readers on an innovative and exciting journey through the worlds of domestic politics, economics and international intrigue.
"At this moment," Macdonald explained, "the fallout appears to be minimal. Nuclear scientists have been flown into the Detroit area and are testing for radiation. Radiation may linger even though satellites show smoke and dust clouds drifting east over southern Canada and Lake Erie. People east of Detroit along Lake Erie and south of it should wear face masks and cover bare skin, or better, stay indoors. That goes for those in northern Ohio and New York State. Precautions are on a new web page, which A.J. will provide to you shortly."
As Rude Awakenings' imaginative plot unfolds, readers learn about the fascinating past life of President Macdonald and the people around him. With revelation comes new insight into the novel's colorful main protagonist.
About the Author
Keith M. Donaldson was born on the obscure island of Manhattan in the little known city of New York and grew up just across the Hudson River in New Jersey. He graduated from Fort Lee High School and attended Rutgers University, but switched to studying drama in New York. Donaldson cut his media teeth working for NBC Radio as a director and later a producer. After making his bones, he transferred to NBC Television and among many assignments worked in the cutthroat world of White House and Capitol Hill politics. After 17 years with NBC, he matriculated into on-air radio, worked in advertising and marketing, and wrote plays as a hobby. After he retired some 25 years later, he began writing novels. He and his wife split their time between Falls Church, VA and Fort Myers, FL. This is Donaldson's third book.
