When Alex Converse, heir to a coal company fortune, visits Silver Gap, Colorado to make an environmentally themed documentary film, he's hoping to change some minds and to soothe his own troubled conscience. But there's more going on-in his mind, and in Silver Gap-than Alex knows. People are dying and women are disappearing. Some of the killers have fur, fangs, and claws-but some don't. What is Alex's connection to the missing women? Will anyone live long enough to find out? And what's up with those wolves? Season of the Wolf is a heart-stopping supernatural thriller about climate change, the human capacity for evil, and the epic struggle between a small town's citizens and impossible creatures from the dawn of history.

Season of the Wolf is a novel that's been in the works for more than a decade, in one form or another.
The overall concept came to me when I was editor-in-chief at a publishing company called IDW Publishing (famous for, among other things, publishing the original 30 Days of Night comic books, which became a very successful comic book line, two movies, and six novels).
The concept at that time was that a mysterious wolf pack, its habits necessarily changed by the effects of global warming on its usual habitat, was forced into conflict with a small mountain town in Colorado. In those days--and because it was a concept for a comic book--the wolves were werewolves.
My comic pitch never went anywhere (although some very cool art was done for it), but the idea never left me. When the opportunity came up last year for me to write it as a novel, I jumped at it. The concept has changed over the years--most significantly, the wolves are still something mysterious, but they are definitely not werewolves. But the gist of it--the conflict between the wolves and the small-town humans, forced together by circumstances beyond anyone's control--remains.
Thanks for looking at it, and if you give it a try, I think you'll find it suspenseful and more than a little scary. Please let me know what you think.
