Richard Fossey

by Richard Fossey Paints a Riveting Portrait of Survival and Independence

Wilmington, Delaware Mar 18, 2024 ( – Brace yourself for a thrilling journey through a near-future, post-apocalyptic America with Richard Fossey’s latest novel, “The Dixie Apocalypse“. Set in a world ravaged by natural disasters, plagues, and terrorism, this gripping tale follows retired lawyer-turned-professor Willoughby Burns as he navigates the treacherous landscape of southern Louisiana in a quest for survival and independence.

In a world where martial law reigns and life has regressed to a primitive state, Willoughby finds himself facing hunger and deadly threats at every turn. But amidst the chaos, he forges an unlikely friendship with US Colonel Merski and embarks on a mission to establish a farming community on the banks of the Mississippi River.

However, Willoughby’s journey takes an unexpected turn when he ventures into Texas and crosses paths with Cole Goodnight, a descendant of the legendary Charlie Goodnight and the leader of a movement to declare Texas an independent Republic. Drawn into Goodnight’s cause, Willoughby, a native Texan, agrees to help organize a constitutional convention to pave the way for Texas’s independence.

“The Dixie Apocalypse” is more than just a post-apocalyptic thriller; it’s a rollicking adventure tale filled with action, humor, and heartfelt tributes to Texas culture. Fossey’s vivid storytelling and affectionate portrayal of Texas’s distinctive music, cuisine, and history make for an immersive reading experience that will leave readers eagerly turning the pages.

But don’t just take our word for it. Esteemed author W. Michael Gear, New York Times-bestselling author of “Dissolution”, praises “The Dixie Apocalypse” as a “fast-moving southern American dystopian novel full of twists and turns” and “perhaps an insightful vision of the second Texas republic”.

Adding to the excitement surrounding “The Dixie Apocalypse”, author Richard Fossey recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Emmy award-winner Kate Delaney of America Tonight Radio. Delaney’s insightful questions offer readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Fossey’s inspiration and the themes that drive this captivating novel.
