Mercy has always dreamed of becoming a werewolf trapper like her father. In Kanta, one must learn how to survive one way or another. A dark-skinned, blue-eyed young beauty, Mercy understands that she brings out the beast in monsters and men. When a routine werewolf delivery turns into a vicious assault from a pair of human traffickers, Mercy’s life changes forever. Somehow she must endure in a dangerous city where women and werewolves are hunted.
Ever since she was a child, Marlena has been fascinated with monsters. It didn’t matter if they appeared in a Vincent Price film, in a 1980s horror flick, or a classic fantasy book, she has always been drawn to them. As she’s gotten older, her definition of what makes a monster has evolved, but her love for them has only grown stronger. Now she’s lucky enough to be able to write about them.
Marlena’s work appears in a smattering of anthologies from The Sirens Call eZine to Heroic Fantasy Quarterly and her young adult dark fantasy Stolen debuts in 2018 (The Parliament House Press). Her stories lean toward weird horror, creature horror, and YA fantasy. When she isn’t thinking up strange tales, she is an active member in the Atlanta cosplay community.
