Glen Tate

Glen Tate has led an amazing life – and one that took a surprising turn. He grew up poor in the rural logging town of Forks, Washington. He worked hard to become a successful professional with a job in the legal and political arenas. Thinking he’d finally made it and everything was great, he was stunned to see how corrupt government is. From his observations at his job, he realized that America is collapsing and bad things are coming. Very soon. He began to prepare for himself and his family to make it through the civil unrest of the coming collapse. That meant he had to return to his rural roots – quite a shock to his family and friends. Even more amazing was that he wrote down what he foresees happening during the collapse and it became a ten-book novel series published by Prepper Press. Now he is married to fellow prepper author Shelby Gallagher and they live in rural western Washington.

Shelby Gallagher

Shelby Gallagher is a different kind of prepper: a former single mom in a large West Coast city who started squirreling away food and buying a gun when she realized the government would not be there to take care of her and her kids when the Collapse comes. She sent a draft of her first book to prepper author Glen Tate, who read the first few chapters and called his publisher. Her three-book series is now one of the most popular prepper book series. She describes the need for prepping in ways women can relate, but so can men. She is now married to Glen Tate and they live in rural western Washington.

Both Glen Tate and Shelby Gallagher wrote their books with the idea of telling a story of a possible collapse and how to prep. Upon reflection, they realized that times are changing quickly. It is an exciting time to prep. Innovation, technology, know-how have advanced in recent years…so has the need to prep. Hence the reason for a new outlook on prepping. The need for Prepping 2.0.
