Zombie-fighting and romance. There’s room for both in Dead Country. This story is set in the same terrifying world as Bonnie Dee’s bestselling After the End, but follows the adventures of new characters. Mathematician Brian Pasman returns to his Kansas hometown just before the zombie apocalypse changes the world. Several months into the invasion, order is slowly being restored, but citizens of the tiny town are left to fend for themselves behind a ramshackle barricade. Into Brian’s routine horror of zombie-killing rides a force of change on a Harley. Ashleigh Jennings once dreamed of a singing career but has survived in the world as a maid, waitress and exotic dancer. Her lively personality brings Brian back to life. The motorcycle group’s arrogant leader clashes with the domineering head of the town council, but everyone must join forces when a new wave of the undead sweeps across the prairie. Can Brian come up with a battle plan to save them all or is his education in probabilities only good in theory?

Response to my novel After the End was overwhelming. People wanted to know what happened next to the protagonists but I wasn't moved to continue their story, preferring to leave it to the readers' imaginations. Several of the critiques of After the End made me realize next time I should set the story in a place I'm more familiar with. That, coupled with a mental image of a swarm of zombies sweeping across the plains, made me decide to set Dead Country squarely in the Midwest. Besides, is there anything creepier than a field of corn in autumn with dried up brown leaves that whisper of death? There's a corn harvester scene in Dead Country that's a lot of fun.
I hope readers enjoy this story as much as After the End and aren't too disappointed I didn't continue the story of Ari and Lila and friends.
Bonnie Dee began telling stories as a child. Whenever there was a sleepover, she was the designated ghost tale teller, guaranteed to frighten and thrill with macabre tales. She still has a story printed on yellow legal paper in second grade about a ghost, a witch and a talking cat. Writing childish stories for her own pleasure led to majoring in English at college. Like most English majors, she dreamed of writing a novel, but didn't have the necessary focus and follow through at that time in her life. It was only in 2000 that she began writing again. Bonnie enjoys writing in many genres including romance and horror.
