Love and friendship take a backseat to survival—especially if you’re a young male wolf on the outskirts of suburban Pittsburgh.
Coda navigates the city and forest, fascinated by these strange creatures called the two-legs and the metal beasts that transport them. He hunts game, encounters new allies, while enduring the brutality of bitter rivals. His routine of blood and stealth is interrupted when a mysterious female from another land enters his world, then turns it upside down.
Observing him is Amy—a beautiful, brilliant, but socially isolated college student—and Sam—a handsome, charming, college basketball star. Under the guidance of their zoology professor, they document the actions and movements of the coywolf species.
When they see Coda heading to northern Canada, Sam and Amy will drop everything during the blizzard of the century to follow him.
Together, these lost souls (human and animal alike) will discover that the only thing more important than knowing how to survive in this dangerous, chaotic world is knowing who you are, and what you’re surviving for.
Wolf Harvest is a tale of suspense, humor, heartbreak, bigotry, and cunning in the face of fear.
Creative and enjoyable for audiences of all ages and species, this book will keep you thrilled to the end. Buy Wolf Harvest and you won’t regret it.
She’s sixteen. She’s alone. And the world thinks she’s crazy. What could possibly happen next? Well, she’s going to show them…
When sixteen-year-old Connelly Pierce wakes up inside an unknown psychiatric hospital with both her wrists slashed, she begins the arduous task of piecing together the events of her life that led her there. Her own cognitive behavioral therapy (as she had learned so well from them). Beginning with the sudden death of her mother and father when she was six, and the only world she knew disappeared, literally, overnight. That’s when, with no known or, at least, close relatives, she and her nine-year-old brother Eric find themselves cast into the nightmare quagmire of government child protection agencies, and Connelly begins her incredible fourteen-year journey—her dark odyssey—into her own brave new world. A world, she realizes, she must not only quickly adapt, but fight back as well, if she hopes to survive.
