Imagine what you would do if The Zombie Apocalypse, a long time favorite topic of authors in the Zombie genre, finally happened? Would you be prepared at all and have a chance to survive or would you be unprepared and quickly die or become a Zombie?

This book is the first of three that I plan to write for this series. It tracks the travels of myself and 3 friends as we attempt to escape the Zombie apocalypse. Our journey begins in Southern Illinois, in a town named Carbondale. We travel across the country attempting to reach Elysium, which one of the larger safe havens in the United States. Along the way we meet new friends and attempt to dispose of new enemies.

The apocalypse was caused by a combination of factors. One was our government allowed people with the Nova Virus to come to our country to get help. We are still the only country that allows that. Second, a corrupt (Are there any others?) mega corporation that was given a huge government contract to perfect a vaccine to cure the Nova Virus allowed the vaccines to become contaminated. Millions of people took the vaccine and I think the reader will figure out what happened as a result of the contamination.

It is very hard to keep politics out of Zombie books, so I do not try to. I express my opinions as I see things as do the other characters in the book. Please keep in mind that this book is a work of fiction.

All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

About the Author

At the tender age of 62, I decided to write my first book. It seems I do everything at a tender age. I got my B.S. from Illinois State University at 44, my M.S. from Illinois State University at 46, and my J.D. from Southern Illinois University at 49. I was admitted to practice law at the age of 50. I am an avid coin collector, love playing tournament bridge, enjoy reading, and like working crossword puzzles. Now that you know something about me, let me discuss the book.
