Werewolf Books from Mark Leslie

Mark Leslie would be the first person to admit he's still afraid of the monster under his bed.

Proudly adopting the term "Book Nerd" for himself, Mark is a writer, editor and bookseller and is most comfortable with a pen in hand, fingers on keyboard or with his nose stuck in a book.

His first book, ONE HAND SCREAMING (2004) collected mostly previously published short stories and poetry along with a few original tales. His other fiction includes I, DEATH (2014), EVASION (2014) and A CANADIAN WEREWOLF IN NEW YORK (2016). Mark's dark fiction is often compared to "Twilight Zone" or "Black Mirror" in terms of style, exploring "what if" themes with contemporary settings that include speculative elements, gently skipping around the genres of sci-fi, horror and urban fantasy.

He is also the editor of the science fiction anthologies NORTH OF INFINITY II (2006), TESSERACTS SIXTEEN: PARNASSUS UNBOUND (2012) the horror anthology CAMPUS CHILLS (2009) as well as FICTION RIVER: EDITOR'S CHOICE (2017) and FICTION RIVER: FEEL THE FEAR (2017).

Mark's first non-fiction book, HAUNTED HAMILTON: The Ghosts of Dundurn Castle & Other Steeltown Shivers (2012) is an appreciation of his hometown told in a combination of historic journeys combined with ghostly legends. His second non-fiction paranormal title SPOOKY SUDBURY: True Tales of the Eerie & Unexplained (2013) is co-authored with Jenny Jelen, about the city they both grew up in. TOMES OF TERROR: Haunted Bookstores & Libraries (2014) explores the types of places Mark most loves to haunt. CREEPY CAPITAL: Ghost Stories of Ottawa & The National Capital Region (2016) explores the eerie and ghostly tales from Canada's capital city. HAUNTED HOSPITALS: Eerie Tales About Hospitals, Sanatoriums, and Other Institutions (2017) is co-authored with Rhonda Parrish.

Mark continues to publish short fiction in small press horror magazines and anthologies and most recently had stories appear in TESSERACTS SEVENTEEN (2015), FICTION RIVER: SPARKS (2016) and 2113: Stories Inspired by the Music of Rush (2016)

Born in Sudbury Ontario, Mark has courted with a serious addiction to reading and writing his entire life. He has called both Ottawa, ON and Hamilton, ON home for about a decade each and currently lives in Waterloo, Ontario.

Storyteller Award Shortlisted Thriller Series


Hi. Thanks for stopping by my Amazon author page. I'm Andy Maslen, creator of Gabriel Wolfe and Stella Cole. I've always loved reading thrillers, so when I took the plunge and began work on my first novel - Trigger Point - it seemed natural to me to follow my heroes.

A lot of my readers ask me if I have ever served in the military. I haven't, but I have some close friends who have. They've been incredibly generous with their time (and patience!), explaining how things work, from weaponry and materiel, to the everyday language and behaviour of soldiers.

There are tons of people out there doing varied and interesting (and sometimes dangerous) jobs. As an author it's fantastic to be able to contact them and find they're only too happy to discuss their work. I've interviewed murder detectives, pharmacology professors, military planners, movie fight arrangers, Special Branch officers ... and they've all shared invaluable details to bring my stories to life. I hope their contributions increase your enjoyment of my books.

In my time, I've worked in a record shop, as a barman, as a door-to-door DIY products salesman and a cook in an Italian restaurant. I eventually landed a job in marketing. I always try to take away something positive from any experience, and often find a memory will surface of a situation I've been in, or a person I've met.

Hot Historical Romances from Callie Hutton

My historical romances are full of heat, humor, and quirky characters. I've always loved history, which was my college major. Things of the past fascinate me. Not those boring history classes in high school, but the history of people. How they lived their lives, what they ate, what they wore, the challenges they faced, what they worried about.

I have recently delved into Historical Cozy Mysteries. My very first one, For the Love of the Baron, a Historical Romantic Suspense novella, spurred me to try a full length, non-romance focused cozy mystery.  A Study in Murder released this year from Crooked Lane Publishing, and the reviews have been very good. The second book in that series, The Sign of Death, will release in April of 2021.

Although those books are not strictly romance, the main characters, William, Lord Wethington, and Lady Amy Lovell have formed a friendship while solving a murder mystery. Who knows where that will take them?

Take a look around my website and check out some of the books I write, and their lovely covers.

Please consider signing up for my newsletter to keep up to date on new releases, sales, and special offers. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
