Over at the “Before It’s News” site, there’s a newly-posted Q& with me about my latest book, Monster Files.
You can find the interview right here, and here’s a taster from it:
“What is the general theme of Monster Files and why did you write the book?”
“ANSWER: The book is basically a study of how, and why, government agencies have taken an interest in reports of strange creatures. This includes Bigfoot, lake-monsters, sea-serpents, werewolves, the Abominable Snowman, and many more. I obtained a lot of official documents concerning official, secret interest in all the above.”
“Can you tell us about the conspiracy of the World War Two Werewolf?”
“ANSWER: Werewolves are a big interest of mine, and I include in the book the story of a hair-covered man shot and killed on British soil during the Second World War. A big cover-up was put into place, as the man was a member of a rich and powerful family in the English county of Devonshire. The man may have been suffering from a condition called Hypertrichosis, which causes the body and face to develop massive amounts of hair. But, it led to rumors a real-life werewolf was shot. Who knows, maybe that’s the real answer!”
