“(O)ne of the most interesting books you’ll read this year,” (IndieReader Reviews – 4.7 of 5 Stars) WATERSHED is a dystopian thriller about a troubled, pregnant woman, and the two men—a snake dealer with a sideline in secret messages and a billionaire living under a false name—who vie for her. Their struggle leads them through a near-future America of anti-technology neighborhoods and illegal hospitals, where stockbrokers moonlight as assassins, nurses procure obscure pleasures, and the powers that be blow up the new World Trade Center to goose tourism. As the mystery deepens, one thing becomes clear – the future’s about to be born… but who will change the diapers? WATERSHED was named a Book of the Month by The Association of Independent Authors and recognized in Kirkus Reviews’ Stars & Recommendations section as “an appealing mix of adventure and contemplation.”


“A highly readable, quirkily creative alternate reality that comes frighteningly close to real life… the present taken to its logical extreme… much more than social commentary. It’s a genuinely captivating edge-of-your-seat thriller, which kept me reading from beginning to end, looking forward to each new chapter.” – The Lost Coast Review

“The world of WATERSHED is a vibrant one, packed to the gills with absurd and yet oddly-believable detail – everything from a September 11th memorial service that involves a full-scale recreation of the original terrorist attack, to a man who gets off on being locked in a coffin with a bag full of cats… Dodds manages to make all this and more seem not just possible, but vivid and tangible too…. It’s the real deal…a strong contender to be one of the most interesting books you’ll read this year.” – IndieReader Reviews (4.7/5 Stars)

“Readers will never be quite sure what lurks around the next corner… An appealing mix of adventure and contemplation.” – Kirkus Reviews

“The masterfully dystopian WATERSHED unpacks the future of a modern America that, while spectacular, nobody was expecting… It’s a future that, as Leonard Cohen sang, is murder. The revelations of prose in WATERSHED makes that murder enjoyable… one of the few things worth believing in.” – Two Thirds North

“The style is simple, uncluttered, but the writer has a gift for magical turns of phrase as well as a natural ear for rhythm… the reader feels as though they have opened a door onto another world.” – Bluepepper

“All the elements of good storytelling line up in this work. The narrative is crisp, the premise is unique, the description and characterizations are well-drawn and compelling… Dodds deserves your attention – there is excitement in the style and insight in the exposition” – Blognostics

“I read this book in one day… striking and clearly not for the faint-hearted… a good read, full of imagination and surprises.” – Scarlet Leaf Review (5/5 Stars)

“Watershed is a fun read for fans of thrillers and dystopian futures alike… unexpected twists and turns will hold your attention from start to finish.” – Furious Gazelle

“…a masterful job of weaving in and out of the converging story lines… the ending is satisfyingly explosive.” – Miller’s Pond Poetry Magazine

“At times a caper novel, at other times a chase story, a romance, a dystopian sci-fi continent-bouncing epic that takes its readers from quaint forests to bustling metropolises and the ends of the world… In our current political climate, the ideas of power and lies, of politics and morality, of war and reasons for it, sex and image, Watershed is a must read. You never know . . . it might be more of a prophesy than any of us want to believe.” -AE Stueve, editor, EAB Publishing; author, Former

“A reality not terribly far removed from our own… one of the stranger and more unconventional love stories I have read in quite some time.” – Your Impossible Voice
