J.S. McCormick, a native of the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin, wife, mother, grandmother, animal enthusiast and activist, clothing designer, devoted writer and author, has completed her new book ‘Trojan Horses:" a gripping and potent work depicting the lives of those who survived, volunteered, and witnessed Hurricane Katrina.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, J.S. McCormick’s honest and moving work will be an inspiration to every reader.

"Trojan Horses" is not just a title but a two word description of the story. Horse and dog thieves came to the region devastated by Hurricane Katrina telling survivors and humane volunteers they were there to help. Unfortunately, they only came to help themselves to animals they would sell into dog fighting rings and to slaughterhouses.

When a middle aged widow drove a thousand miles just to deliver hay to the Gulf Coast area, she had no idea she would wind up playing an integral role or that she would encounter bullets, bandits and bureaucrats who were not equipped to handle the monumental task left in the wake of the storm. This is a 'behind the scenes look' of individual sacrifices and how lives across the nation were effected as volunteers flooded Jackson, MS, and hundreds of other cities where survivors tried to reconstruct their lives. This reconstruction also included locating beloved pets that were feared lost or injured and alone.

From the first page to the exciting stampede to freedom, people went above and beyond for strangers all drawn together by a hurricane that made an incredible difference in lives long after the winds and water had receded.

Readers who wish to experience this prolific work can purchase“Trojan Horses” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
