Looking for the titles and author of a paperback trilogy

It's set in a post-apocalyptic America. The hero is male who goes from coast to coast. Another prominent character is his younger sister, who I think has some sort of psychic ability.

The author is male.

Does this sound familiar?

Thanks a lot!

Much appreciated!
Amtrak wars maybe by Patrick Tilley but its 6 books maybe others came out after you read them

No, I don't think so. There were only 3 titles. And, I haven't read them. I saw them as I was looking for something else.

Thank you anyway for your help.
Closest I come is Roger Zelazny's Damnation Alley, but that's 1 book, the girl has no psychic abilities, is met along the way and is not related. Not to mention that the "hero" is more of an "anti-hero".
No. That's not it. Thanks for your help anyway.

I look in the Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic section of websites, but there are so many titles and series, it's hard to wade through them all.
Something came to me overnight. It may help. It may not. I don't know.

As I stated before, the main character has a sister. I seem to recall that there is a group of people who kidnap her or who want to kidnap her. So, the main character either looks for her or tries to keep her safe from this group of people.

I know it's not much, but maybe it will help.

The 3 books I'm looking for are available at the city library. I looked them up in the library catalog when I first saw them.

But, here's the problem. I looked under the keywords apocalyptic and post apocalyptic and I couldn't find them using those keywords.

What other keywords should I use?

You might also try dystopia.
or Distopic tale
But the problem is there are multitude of series that fit your description with the psychic powered young girl and someone, a brother or sister, trying to keep her safe from those who wish to abuse her and her power.

Maybe knowing what the trigger for the apocalypse is might help but generally it's some sort of disease or virus. And those are many also.

Narrowing it down to a trilogy helps; but is it really a trilogy.
I read your description and thought it sounded familiar, but couldn't think of it. Did a quick Google search and came across the Obernewtyn Series (not what I was thinking of), it doesn't match your description exactly, but seems awful similar, any luck?
