Book Description

18 July 2013 The Last Werewolf Hunter
What would you do, if the people you loved wanted you to become a monster? What if they wouldn't take no for an answer? When twelve-year-old Zach Trewick is faced with questions like these, there seems to be only one answer- Run. But Zach's family has no intention of letting him escape so easily, because even though he doesn't know it yet, Zach is a Curse-Breaker, the long-foretold boy who can erase the curse of his family forever. And they will stop at nothing to prevent him.

More About the Author

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, although nowadays it's mostly novels.

Most of my work could be loosely grouped under the category 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.

My stories tend to be about adventure and survival, usually with a strong speculative element. I like to write about what might happen if a boy found himself in a moral dilemma because he disapproves of his parents' choice to become werewolves (as I did in Cry for the Moon), or what might happen if the Moon were terraformed into a glitzy resort destination (as I did in Tycho), and so forth.

People sometimes like to know where the particular inspiration for a story came from, and I usually discuss that subject in the Author's Note at the end of each book I write.

It's always encouraging to talk to anyone who took pleasure in my work, and I like talking to fans. So if anyone has questions or comments about anything, please feel free to message me.

Product Description


The people who want you to join the party might never understand there's a reason you don't want to. "Cry for the Moon" tells the story of one Zach and his family of werewolves. While Zach is not one himself, he has relatives who want nothing more than to change this fact. A story of retaining one's humanity, "Cry for the Moon" is a unique treat for humorous fiction readers. --Midwest Book Review

I love the way this family's strangeness is woven so well into the environment of a normal home. By page two we already suspect that Nana ain't your typical ol' grandma. Soon after, we're sure. And yet this fantasy seemed very real. Telling the story from a child's perspective, his not wanting to be a monster, anger at being tricked, grossed out at eating animals, was a great choice for making things believable and relatable. We learn as Zach learns, and he's such a likable, intelligent boy that it's easy to identify with him. Great work! --Tennessee Reviewer

I read Cry for the Moon in one go. Once I started, I just had to keep going until I finished. I found it to be original, warm and entertaining. I found myself completely empathising with young Zach. I loved every page. --Nicole Currey

Even the description of the story did not quite prepare me for the disturbing start of this book - but I had to read on (do NOT let the beginning keep you from reading the book - you will soon understand how crucial that scene is to the rest of the story). I was rewarded for my efforts, as this tale unfolds with surprising satisfaction! The author is very skilled at creating the mood and making you feel the emotions of this young man, who is faced with very grown-up dilemmas and decisions. I found myself captivated with the story and could not stop reading until I reached the end!

Everything about this story is thought-provoking, from the young man's ability to cope with various situations, to the ultimate choice he must make. The monsters that Zach has to deal with may be nothing, compared with the 'monsters' that other children are facing - this book could easily be a turning point for them.

Readers of all ages will appreciate this wonderfully told story. I look forward to reading more books by this author and I will recommend this book to everyone! --Jancy Morgan Dunn

An excellent adventure novel that follows a young boy on his journey to "freedom" of soul... really surprisingly good!

When I first started reading this book, I almost put it down. It seemed odd, starting out with a werewolf scene that almost turned me off from the book, since I have no experience with this author. However, I kept going and I was REALLY pulled into the story. The beginning was then fitting for the story as well, the whole point is that you are repulsed by the start, same as the main character!

An excellent book by a newish author... he should be in the ranks of the rest of the Christian Fiction authors! Very excellent writing, very good storyline, excellent, well-rounded characters! Highly recommend! I am going to read his other books now when I get a moment! --Natalie Porter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational 8 May 2009
This is one of the best books I've ever read. I think readers of all ages will love this inspirational tale. I was hooked from the start. On the surface it is a humourous adventure and yet if you look deeper it is a story about life and searching for something more. Twelve year-old Zach comes from a family of loup garous (werewolves). He has now reached the age where he is ready to be initiated and become a 'monster' as he puts it. His family have already set the wheels in motion to turn him into a fully fledged loup garou. This is when Zach makes his escape fleeing from the family home under some pressure to avoid being there for the next full moon when he will be expected to make his first kill.
The story is written in the first person from Zach's viewpoint, in a loose style reminiscent of JD Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye'.
It is the story of Zach's quest to find his uncle Justin who is one of the only members of his family who is not a werewolf. He has never met his uncle before and doesn't even know where he lives. He sets out on a search from Tennessee to Texas, living rough and getting by on the little money he can make along the way. It's a fun read and contains some inspirational writing. In his search for his uncle, Zach finds more than he set out to find. On a deeper level the book is also about turning from the dark and finding God. It is also a story about the choices that we have to make in life, and how difficult those choices can be.

Cry for the moon is something that I haven't read before. The plot, the characters and the way it has been written in general has a story of its own to tell.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes their hearts pumping, something different to read and those who like to sympathies with the main character and his woes.
