Excerpt from A Problem with Werewolves - short story in Dark Journeys Anthology

An Excerpt from A Problem with Werewolves

The first werewolf rose and was about to charge Monique when I raced forward to tackle it.

“No!” Monique yelled, putting herself between the beast and me. The werewolf swiped a hairy paw at her head, but she ducked and grasped it from behind. She squeezed its neck with her hands until the sounds of bones cracking made me cringe. She let go, and the werewolf fell to the ground. She closed her eyes and sniffed the air for several minutes.“Any more of them?” I asked. My thumping heart banged against my ribcage and perspiration formed on my forehead.

In Dark Journeys, short stories and dark poems describe perilous paths taken by mortals, vampires, and other creatures of the night. One story is about the surprise that awaits a mortal man when he has a picnic with the Queen of the forest. In A Problem with Werewolves a mortal male and his beautiful female vampire lover battle a pack of werewolves and a hideous demon. Dark poems tell of the painful and sometimes fatal relationships between mortals and vampires.If this sounds interesting, and I hope it does, please follow the link and buy the anthology for only $.99.
