The world ended on a Thursday.
In one day, the world succumbed to a pestilence that decimated the living. In its place rose a new species: vicious, gruesome, wandering zombies with an insatiable hunger for the living. There is no government. No shelter. No hope.
Still in her twenties, Cash has watched her friends die, only to walk again. An office worker with few survival skills, she joins up with Clutch, a grizzled Army veteran with PTSD. Together, they flee the city and struggle through the nine circles of hell, with nothing but Clutch’s military experience and Cash’s determination to live. As they fight to survive in the zombie inferno, they quickly discover that nowhere is safe from the undead…or the living.
100 Days in Deadland is a journey through Dante Alighieri’s “Inferno”, the classic tale on the horrors of hell… zombie apocalypse style!
Contains violence, adult language, and adult situations. For mature teens or older.

About The Author
100 Days in Deadland is set in near-future Midwest America decimated by a zombie plague. In this truly unique story, our heroine–Cash, an office worker and weekend pilot–is forced on a journey through hell that echoes the one Dante took in the “Inferno,” the world-renowned first poem in Dante Alighieri’s epic medieval tale, The Divine Comedy. In both tales, there are nine circles of hell that must be survived, and the thirty-four cantos of the “Inferno” are reflected in the thirty-four chapters of 100 Days in Deadland…reimagined zombie apocalypse style.
As Cash moves through each circle of hell, she witnesses the same sins that Dante had many centuries ago. However, where Dante often stood on the sidelines, Cash is thrown deep into the action. Like Dante’s “Inferno,” 100 Days in Deadland is a story of the human condition. You will find violence, heartbreak, and tragedy. However, you will also find perseverance, compassion, and hope.
That said, this story is, above all, for your entertainment,so… Enjoy, and watch out for zombies!
