Zach Trewick has a hard choice to make. His family expects him to become a werewolf on the night of the next full moon, whether he likes it or not, and he’s got only three days left before time runs out.
Scrambling to find a way to stay human, Zach quickly makes a bold plan to run away from home and find his uncle Justin nearly a thousand miles away in Texas, the only person he can think of who might take him in.
Stowing away in a septic tank, sleeping in a library, and living in a dog house on a vacant lot are among the adventures he encounters along the way.
But the werewolves have no intention of letting him escape so easily. For although he doesn’t know it yet, Zach is the Curse-Breaker, the long-foretold boy who can crush the wolf curse forever, and his family will stop at nothing to prevent that.
Nominated for the 2010 Texas Lone Star Reading List for excellence in young adult literature, Cry for the Moon is the first book in the Last Werewolf Hunter series, followed by “Behind Blue Eyes,”
The series is suitable for middle-graders and up, since it contains only mild violence and little to no gore. It has more to do with Zach’s ultimate choice to become the last werewolf hunter in the world, and to break the Curse forever.
The series occasionally contains some light Christian themes.
I began writing at the age of seven, while watching my mother compose poetry at the kitchen table. I already loved books, so I thought I’d give it a try myself. I’ve continued writing ever since. I still write poetry and short stories occasionally, but nowadays my focus is mainly on fantasy novels.
Most of my work could be loosely grouped under the genre of Young Adult, if only because many of my characters are young and I keep my writing clean. But in spite of that, I never write bland books with nothing to say. They always include a deeper level for more experienced readers to think about.
I’ve always been something of a dreamer and a lover of bright and beautiful things, and that’s reflected in my writing at times. I’ve also had more than my share of sorrows in life, and that shows up sometimes too. So does the Southern flavor that comes from my youth in Arkansas and Texas. I’m also a Christian author who will never write a single word that dishonors God. That doesn’t mean I won’t write about cruelty or evil. . . just that I’ll never portray it to be appealing or enticing. Tolkien said the same.
