This novel tells of the fiends who stalk the darkness, creatures who snatch the flesh from the living. Monsters in the Woods is an unrelenting and ferocious tale of a monstrous race invading our planet and the all-out war that follows.
Monsters is a heart-stopping rollercoaster ride of suspense, an adventure for those with enormous imaginations! After all, I want you uncomfortable, biting the tips of your fingernails down to the bloody nubs, grinding your teeth in a fit of vicious nerves, afraid to look under the bed. That’s bliss for me, watching as you shift your eyes from side to side, a nervous glance, a terrified expression planted on your face. That’s where I need you, horrified at the thud outside the window, a rustling in the back of your dark bedroom’s closet… a noise in the next room.
I should explain, this EPIC tale has roots in reality. It sprouts from honest to God reports of green and scaly creatures documented throughout humanity’s history. This telling speaks of what if? And oh my! Not long ago, I happened across a Hopi legend that warned of reptilian creatures who were said to have lived hundreds of feet below what is now downtown Hollywood. Many claim it’s the stuff of science fiction. Yet could it really be true?
When I first heard of the lizard people and their alleged existence during my annual pilgrimage to the International UFO Congress’ Annual Symposium held at the We-Ko-Pa Resort and Conference Center in Fountain Hills, Arizona, I had to wonder…could there really be something to this tale?
Keep in mind, scientists believe there are one-hundred-billion stars in our galaxy and ten-trillion galaxies in the observable universe. That means there are about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (a-thousand-quintillions or one sextillion) stars out there! It is believed that 7.6% of those are Class-G stars like our own sun. That’s important because it is estimated that almost all Class-G stars support at least one planet in which life must exist.
The Universe is believed to be teeming with life! If that is such, couldn’t there be other life forms like E.T. out there somewhere? And, If so, why is it so fundamentally insane to suppose they’ve been coming to Earth since the beginning of mankind to manipulate our DNA, hunt or live among us?
