A Spine-Chilling Thriller For Free!

Today I'm thrilled to announce that my novella Hunger of the Wolf is free on Amazon! (from Thursday - Saturday US time). If you like to be scared and appreciate a good story with a few unexpected twists and turns, then you will enjoy this book. It's my first non-romance book, so I'm very interested to see how it is received. At 32,000 words it's also my longest self-published book to date.

When I look back on what inspired me to write my books, I can never remember much at all about the planning phase. I do recall that Hunger of the Wolf was based very losely on Little Red Riding Hood, and although it moved away from this story quite a bit, there are still some elements from the fairytale remaining. See if you can spot them.

Here's the blurb:

Amber Lee is going through a painful divorce when she decides to take off to an isolated mountain cabin to get away from it all. She hopes the mountains will help her to heal, but her serenity is shattered when she learns that her closest neighbour, Jesse Davidson, is a suspect in the disappearance of a young girl.

Amber tries not to become too caught up in the rumours, but through a series of disturbing events she is drawn into the mystery. As she tries to discover the truth, Amber learns that appearances can be deceiving and wolves come in all types of clothing. She must confront the ugliest aspects of human nature and draw on all her inner strength as she is forced to fight for her survival.

"You know, my dear, it isn't safe for a little girl to walk through these woods alone."

  2. Hi Francene--I can't wait to read this, it sounds great!

    I just wanted to let you know that I've been neglecting my blog for months, and just noticed that you left a very sweet comment on my blog back in March (eek!) that I never responded to. Thanks so much for your kind review of my work.
