Abstract

Prodigal is part one of what will be my first novel as a creative writer and follows Tate Jones at the intersection of his dark past and his new family life. Decades ago, the world of Prodigal endured a self-inflicted apocalyptic event known as the Collapse. Since then, society has evolved into sprawling mega-cities living under social and governmental mechanisms designed to grade people on their worth to the public. Tate, along with several other characters, suffered under these programs since birth and must decide how he will survive in a world that has regarded him as waste. It is my intention to present a story at the intersection of post-apocalyptic, dystopian, and science fiction to show how survival can range from saving one’s life to preserving one’s soul
