Overview

A man craves revenge against a young woman but indirectly uses his enormous canine that ultimately wants to kill her. Which one survives?
EXCERPT: "We hear a bellowing bark. At once, Hannibal releases my ravaged shoe. When he looks down from the roof of the Caterpillar, his thick chain flops over the edge and dangles in front of Sampson’s face. Sampson continues to bark while he tries to climb, but his large size causes him to topple back down to the ground. He constantly jumps up against the side of the Caterpillar and ultimately clenches, between his teeth, the chain from Hannibal’s collar. Sampson tugs like a plow, anchors his big front paws into the soft earth, and yanks and yanks while he watches Hannibal’s head jerk downward, again and again. Hannibal resists, claws the metal roof, incessantly tries to heave Sampson’s weight until the groaning body loses balance at the edge, drags off the Caterpillar roof, and lands with a loud thud into the dirt below."

Meet the Author

Throughout each of our lives, stories continuously happen around us. Expressing them on paper thrills me, but presenting the book to you with grace and clarity is in itself another story. Authors share a great challenge of maintaining your attention, never an easy task, hence, my goal is to move your heart. Please take a minute to let us know your impression. Thank you so much.From San Antonio, Texas and after decades of a successful career in real estate, I embarked on a new career, writing, which simmered for forty years until life's duties came to a halt. Most of the short novels, novellas, and short stories are inspired by true events and take place in Texas settings. I attempt to keep my writing style clear and direct, which can be enjoyed from the young to the old. In several books, I provide Texas facts with violent self defense battles and natural disasters as well as moving, emotional struggles then combine them with moral fortitude.By curbing the reading time of the books to no longer than the length of a long movie, the intent is to spark interest in individuals who dislike reading. "Writing opens the window to our souls, yet reading opens the door. If I can inspire anyone to read, then I feel successful in my endeavor."My books:"Monster At My Window" (Novella)"Night Invaders" sequel to Monster at My Window - release - 2014"Moonshiner The Wolf" (Short Novel)"Hannibal" (Novelette)"The Rabbi's Books" (Novelette)"Visiting Mary" (Short Story)"Flood of 1965" (Novelette)"Steven" (Short Story)"Lucky" (Children's Short Story)~~~~ REVIEWS ~~~~"Moonshiner The Wolf" (Only 4 and 5 star reviews!1. "Very good story. Great main character, and others too. Well written, captivating, and exciting. Harsh reality mixed with ghostly spirits and unconditional, eternal love." B&N Anonymous, March 24, 20132. This book helps us to understand two things: One, life is about the realization that if you know something has to be done, be self-reliant and do it, which in turn creates a strong sense of worth. And two, for some of us it can be difficult to know others as deeply as we might like to, especially those we love the most. Be good to those you love so you can live with them after this life, forever and ever." Andrew Campbell3. "Kudos! A heart-wrenching story that entices you to keep reading. It's well written and certainly appropriate for all ages. Loved reading it." Thomas Holden4. "A moving story from beginning to end; one scene is a real tear-jerker." - Alpine Avalance, Alpine, Tx. Valerie P.5. " 'Moonshiner The Wolf' tells the tale of a courageous West Texas ranch woman. She befriends a wolf that becomes her lifetime guardian. Don't miss out, read it!"-- Bandera County Courier Editor, Bandera, Tx. Carolyn Edwards."MONSTER AT MY WINDOW" (RANKED 7 TIMES IN ITUNES USA)1. "A highly recommended thriller! Good battle scenes and good plot will hold your interest all the way through. Not one unneccesary or boring word the author does not force elements that disrupt the flow. The characters come to life and the setting fits like a glove. It begins with an up close casting of a young daughter who tells the truth and from there it unfolds into a unique storyline when friends face up to creatures that infiltrate a south Texas town. The end will leave you wanting more thrills, I guarantee it." David Martinelli2. "Great Read! I thought this book would be all about monsters, but I got more out of it than just a monster story. This book reminds people that no matter how a child describes something, you should always listen and hear them! The way a child views something is not always the way we adults view them. Great book! To me, much more than a monster story." Wanda S.3. "Different, but interesting." R.em"Hannibal" (RANKED 1,156+ TIMES IN ITUNES U.K., CANADA, U.S.A., and AUSTRALIA)1. The storyline in this short story produces no punches as the author describes her survival against an animal that was never taught love." Kristina Howells, France author"VISITING MARY" (CHOSEN BY FOUR EDITORS IN TEXAS)1. "This short story is charged with emotion and the imagery is fantastic as well --- keep writing." Heather Kitt"THE RABBI'S BOOKS"1. "Excellent point of view. From the atrocities depicted in Elie Wiesel's "Night" to the haunting scene of Schindler's List, these events truly are worth teaching. To think that certain schools would have the nerve to excuse the matter is absolutely disappointing. Bravo to you, Nancy, for portraying that point of view and doing it so well!" Shane Ryan, writer"Flood of 1965"1. "I felt like I was a part of the story, good description." Laura EverlyNote from author: In December the Christmas short story "Visiting Mary" was chosen for publication by editors of four newspapers throughout Texas, "The Bandera County Courier" in Bandera County, "The Leader" in Dallas, Texas," La Prensa San Antonio", and "El Hispano News," Dallas, Texas.I am sole owner of these published stories and they are copyrighted at the U.

    A rather sensitive ending that had to happen in this short story. Starts out getting to know the characters but takes off in high speed until the last page. A dog nervously reacts when you show fear.

    Highly compelling and recommended read. Superb writing--once you start reading you can't stop till the end. When a person is under attack, whether by man or beast, no matter how meek that person seems, survival of the fittest kicks in
