A sub-company to the largest pharmaceutical corporation in the world, located in South Carolina, has fallen victim to a serial killer.  Three are dead as they were working to successfully synthesize venoms into drugs that would cure virtually every major human ailment.  Aids, cancer, heart disease, Parkinsons and Alzheimers, to name a few, would go away.  Cured.  The police have a suspect in custody, a Doctor and Professor of Herpetology and Toxicology at the institution conducting the research, and who led the projects.  But the Doctor proclaims that she is innocent and is relying on her boyfriend and attorney to prove it.  The attorney, Jacob Grantes, is forced to call upon an old friend from South Boston, MA, a private investigator that saved his life at one time.  The search for the truth takes the investigator, Warren Dennihan, through the underbelly of Big Pharma, industrial espionage, and the mind of a serial killer.  There is no end to the number of people who want to thwart these drugs, and kill using the very toxin that they want to stop.  All of the answers lie in Venom.

Sedona is well-known as a very spiritual place. It is also known as a congregation ground for crystal crunchers, self-proclaimed visionaries and mystics. There are a few true healers here, but they shun the media and the publicity that others come here to seek. Two of them feel a shift in balance one evening, and know something bad has come to this healing spot.

A father and son serial killer team has stopped by in Sedona on the way north to Canada. With them, they bring all the hate that drives them to keep killing. They have a well-refined method of finding, keeping and finally killing their subjects, and are experts at leaving no trace. They have remained at large as they perform these acts while travelling through seven states.

This story is about the healers, and how they, with the help of a USFS volunteer and his search/rescue dog, Sam find out what has happened and how to make it go away before more killings occur.

Mike and Linda Harris are residents of Sedona, Arizona. They relocated to Sedona in 2003, leaving California for a less-structured and more healthful lifestyle in a peaceful, beautiful place.

Both are graduates of SDSU, and Mike has authored several books under his name on technical subjects, including some which remain in the classified domain. He is from a Business Development background with emphasis on contract electronics for Defense Electronics companies.

Linda has a Business degree, and was most recently a Director of Resident Programs at one of the largest multi-level senior care facilities in Southern California. She has been on television, and is credited for assisting in the establishment of the ethics committee under which many of the senior care facilities operate today. Both, with the assistance of Sam, co-wrote this book.

Both Mike and Linda are active in the Sedona area, volunteering under USFS programs which are dedicated to preservation of the Sedona wildlife preserves and trail systems. These include the Adopt-a-Trail program, Mountain Bike Patrol and Friends of the Forest programs. Sam is included in these efforts, and routinely can be seen walking in the forest with patrollers, trail management personnel and volunteer search and rescue groups.
The Season For Moths is a work of historical fiction that spans more than eight decades.  Scott Wellinger's compilation of four short stories, The Season For Moths is composed of tangentially interconnected, sequential storylines, set in the years from the end of Prohibition -- 1933 -- to 2016.  Each story is deeply rooted in the times in which they take place, transporting the reader through the news, fashion and music, set as the backdrop for each narrative.


In story one, Anglossa Cuprina, fourteen-year-old Cuprina Blohmkowski discovers her isolated world in St. Albans, Vermont, to be the northern hub of bootlegging -- a major revenue center for organized crime.

Barritt "Bear" Kendrick, under-boss for Frankie "The Kid" Cidonese who reported to none other than Al Capone, was charged with overseeing bootlegging from Canada, through Vermont, to all major cities in the Northeast.  He and his crew set up their residency in Cuprina's hometown.

It wasn't just the Great Depression, closed banks, poverty and being a Jew in a Catholic community that Blohmkowski had to overcome.  Bear Kendrick also had her scent.


In the second story, Gerry Hutchins, a recovering drug addict and alcoholic, lives a life of solidarity in the 1969.  He lives in Toronto, Canada in anonymity among those in his support groups and chooses only having non-familiar relationships with his coworkers.  Until SHE came along.


Chrysiridia Rhipheus, the third story, takes place in the early nineteen-nineties.  A young student from New Orleans is beginning her final year in at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts.  She is on a scholastic scholarship and cannot afford any distractions, else she loose her chance to continue on at Harvard as a graduate student.  As the autumn leaves change, so too does Christina Bachet.  Her future is hers to squander in a time when grunge and anarchy and rage against the system that oppresses the populous is so prevalent.


In this remarkable book's denouement, winter has arrived in Lake Lure, North Carolina, where those in a senior-living community spend their remaining years.  Knowing and caring for these residents is beyond difficult.  It must be done at some remove in order not to be lured into a constant state of depression over the frequent and inevitable loss.  Old people die.  But when Nurse Logan begrudgingly begins to let them into her heart, it is beyond fathom what she discovers.


Scott Wellinger's anthology of historical fiction is a departure from the norm and will take some readers to times and places they have never been.  The Season For Moths explores times and places within the human soul, an introspection the reader will undoubtedly connect with, regardless of season in life.
