Henry Lee Lucas was born in a one-room log cabin in Blacksburg, Virginia, the youngest of nine children to Viola Dixon Waugh and Anderson Lucas. His alcoholic prostitute mother often beat him and dressed him up in girl’s clothing and made him watch her service her johns while his crippled father watched on helplessly. Ottis Toole, born at the bottom of the gene pool, retarded and illiterate, had been out of control since early childhood. A severely drug-dependent individual as well as an arsonist and cannibal, he was unsafe under any conditions outside of a secure prison, and perhaps unsafe there. To him, life itself was so unmeaning, and the distinction between living and dead people so blurred, that killing another human being was no more than swatting an annoying fly. Alone and with Lucas, this killer drag queen restlessly roved all over this country robbing, raping, burning and killing, attacking America more like an epidemic plague than a human being. Based on actual real-life interviews, court transcripts and eye witness accounts, HENRY: AN AMERICAN MONSTER is an unflinching look into the mind of one of the most vicious serial killers in American history, whom, along with his schizophrenic, psychopathic, murderous sidekick Ottis Toole, cruised the highways and byways of the American South, slaughtering innocent victims in the name of an underground society known as The Hand of Death.

About the Author:

Brian Lee Tucker is a former bartender, house painter, and a “late-blooming hippie,” whose mother gave birth to him on the way to the Woodstock music festival on August 15th, 1969. Needless to say, he didn’t make it to Woodstock, but he made up for it later by forming his first band, Yellow Moon, at the tender age of twelve years old, with his mother, Karina, and his father, Jackson, on backing vocals and guitar. Influenced by the mellow, smooth sounds of bands like the Mamas and the Papas, the Byrds, and singers like Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot, he created a signature sound all his own, a folk-ish, soft rock style that made him a home town institution around San Fransisco in the early eighties. Staying true to his roots, he is still an avid fan of the classic 60s and 70s pop culture, as well as the classic literature of such noted writers as Harper Lee, J.D. Salinger, and rebel writers like the late Hunter S. Thompson. A fledgling writer and poet, he is currently at work on his first book of fictional stories. Also a hardcore true crime buff and amateur beat-journalist, he is currently at work on another screenplay, Chameleon, based on the murderous exploits of serial killer Ted Bundy. Screenplays: Raging Cannibal: the True Story of serial killer Ottis Toole The Cemetery Artist: Ed Gein: a True American Horror Story Chameleon: the True Story of Ted Bundy All available now from www.createspace.com and Amazon Kindle
