This young adult novella uses the werewolf as a metaphor for child abuse. Targeted to high school ages, it centers on a girl who believes that her stepfather killed her birth father. Her mother treats her as a small child, even though Lisa is 16 years old. Her stepfather takes more than a parental interest in her. Can Lisa and her best friend Louie find the evidence to prove that Larry killed her father? Or will it be too late to save her mother Mona?
Targeted Age Group: 15 to 22

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Some childhood experiences led me to write Bad Moon Rising as a way to purge some bad feelings from my life. Of course, a number of monster movies inspired the werewolf theme, and that provided a way to deal with the “evil that lurks in the hearts of men” in terms of a story.
