Synopsis

Buried in Rubble True Stories of Surviving Earthquakes by Terry Collins

Plates crash to the floor and dressers topple over as the earth rumbles beneath you. Earthquake! These deadly natural disasters can leave people trapped under tons of wreckage. Despite being buried alive, some people have overcome the odds and lived to tell the tale. These true stories detail the amazing events of people who have emerged from the rubble during an earthquake.

About the Author

Terry Collins always knew he wanted to be a writer when he grew up. A former award-winning newspaper reporter and columnist, he now writes poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels for readers of all ages. He also teaches literature and creative writing, helping to inspire other lovers of the written word. Terry lives in his hometown in North Carolina with his wife, Ginny, and their devoted dog, Bosley. A lifelong reader, he has a personal library that outgrew his house years ago. Despite his wife's gentle protests over a lack of space, he believes a person can never own too many books. Born in Gateshead, England, Mack has a strong passion for creating art. He has always had a love for storytelling and character within art, and for the past 15 years has been fortunate enough to put that passion to great use working as a professional artist in the video games industry. During this time, Mack has also worked as a freelance illustrator and comic book artist. Working on a diverse range of projects has helped widen his skills and strengthen his passion for creating art with a strong sense of narrative, something Mack wishes to continue pursuing.
