9781425909567: Nuns And Werewolves: A Modern Day Tale Of Witchcraft And Deception

Nuns and Werewolves was written to be sheer entertainment. It is a modern day gothic tale peppered with witchcraft, lycanthropy, violence, lust, and murder. Heavy and dark; yes, but also campy and sexy. Over-the-top characters carry the story of the tumultuous lives of two women brought together as young orphaned girls; raised in a remote convent school with nothing to keep them entertained except their schoolwork and one girl's knowledge of witchcraft, which she secretly shares with her only friend. At the age of seventeen, the girls are disunited due to their differing philosophies of life and their mutual desires for a young male artist who is working in the convent school. Their conflicts lead them into dark spells, lycanthropy, and murder. Thirty-two years later, the conflict continues. One of the girls is now the mature mother of the artist's philandering gay son, who has inherited his father's propensity to howl at the moon. She engages the services of the campy Grande Dame of Wiccas in an effort to exorcise the spirit of a vengeful ghost from her home. A seance gone wrong, reanimation of the dead, unrequited love, a gay love affair, a ninety-four year old wizard and a gala Halloween celebration in West Hollywood, California add to the mix as the life and death struggle between the two girls culminates. All the makings of a prime-time soap opera for the horror buff.

About the Author:

As a kid growing up in Long Beach, California, it was always a special treat for me to go to the Saturday matinee at the local movie theater and find that the program was a double feature of horror movies. Always fascinated by the macabre and supernatural; I loved anything to do with creatures of the night. My imagination fueled my ability to scare my cousins and friends with ghost stories during our many sleepovers. My elders always assured me that there was no such thing as werewolves, vampires, witches, zombies, etc. but I was never quite convinced that their claims were true. After spending time as a young adult in San Francisco and the bay area, I moved to West Hollywood and became a painter of custom oil portraits. Although my characters in my writings are all fictional, I can not deny that I have met some very interesting individuals while living in these progressive environments, and that perhaps some of my creations are a composite of eccentricities and oddities, which I have observed in them. That said; I must state that all of my characters are fictional. (No . . . really) Any similarities to anyone living or dead ( ? ) are purely coincidental. Nuns and Werewolves is my first solo attempt at writing a novel. It was created in conjunction with co-authoring another novel, Indecent Discretion, writing a children's book, Dee-Dee Liverplease, working on my third novel, Murder In The Pigsty, and the publication of my first short story, "The Rescue" Writing has become a true labor of love for me. I hope that you, my readers, will experience at least some of the enjoyment while reading Nuns and Werewolves as that, which I had while writing it.
