More About the Author

Prior to becoming an award-winning author of his dark fiction Chupacabra Series, Michael was a full-time international film publicist who had worked on multiple titles for Walt Disney, Pixar, Lionsgate, Lakeshore Entertainment, Warner Bros., Summit Entertainment, and the 2013 Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language Film, "La grande bellezza" (The Great Beauty).

Born in the early 1970's in Los Angeles County to an exceptionally normal salesman and homemaker, Michael dreamed of following his passions for entertainment and storytelling by acting. It was while studying theatre arts at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California, did he realize his penchant for stories were better suited on the page rather than the stage. But creating tales with suspense, laughter, and heart is not Michael's only love. Hebler also enjoys volunteering in his local community, as well as aid in the capture/spay/neuter/release feral program.

To date, Michael's publications include NIGHT OF THE CHUPACABRA, CURSE OF THE CHUPACABRA, and LEGEND OF THE CHUPACABRA (Books I, II, & III of the six-part Chupacabra Series) as well as his first publication, THE NIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS, a holiday picture book for believers of any age.

I'm thrilled to be able to tell you about this brand new release!

The men huddle around the campire. The glow from the flames refelcts on their faces. A friendly game of poker between the two brothers is interupted by little Jessica, Drake`s daughter. Gavin grins, knowing Drake still can't figure out how she is sneaking out of the wagon.

Fearing Lucy's wrath, Drake tucks Jessica back in bed and then stops to talk with his wife. That's when it starts. The animals are an early warning. They jerk loose and tear off into the desert. Then an unholy roar comes from one of the wagons, soon accompanied by screams of terror.

The brothers race to get their guns, but before they can reach the wagon, something too fast to follow leaps from one wagon to the next and the screaming starts again. The chupacabra easily leaps from wagon to wagon, killing in a blood lust. All goes quite.

Then they get their first look at the creature. It's the size of a man, but there the resemblance ends. It's covered in brown fur, it's spiked tail flicks back and forth, it's red eyes glow, and it's stench can be smelled from across the fire.

Then it leaps into Drake's wagan. He dives in after it. The wagon shakes, rocks and bursts into flames. The creature bursts forth, engulfed in flames, and runs right into Gavin, pinning him to the ground. Gavin is being burned alive.

Impossibly, the thing is alive and leaps up to run off into the darkness, leaving Gavin mortally wounded. Lucy runs away into the night, driven hysterical by the loss of her daughter.

All this Drake sees as he lies helpless on the ground, horribly burned.

I can't believe this all takes place at the beginning of the book.

Night of the Chupacabra is a great Horror-Western that is perfect for October. Night of the Chupacabra follows a man, named Drake, and his family traveling to west for a better life. One night while resting from all their travels with not too far to go, they end up meeting something terrible in the desert. They don't know what it is. All they know is that it looks like a man, it is fast and it wants to eat something...or someone. After tragedy strikes, Drake is on a journey. While he stumbles on a town, he gets more more than he bargained for, both from the townspeople and from the chupacabra he thought he left behind.

Wow, what a wonderful read this was. The story was very thrilling and well paced. Night of the Chupacabra is much more than a monster story. It is the story of a man who needs closure. Drake has lost so much, but he is on a mission. He is trying to find his lost wife. He doesn't believe she died when the chupacabra came and took out their camp. He travels send him to a secluded town named Dillmore (well valley), and as expected, everyone is frightened of Drake due to the scars on his face. Everyone is suspicious of him because they believe he is trouble. There are a few snags while he is staying at a bar, but things take a turn for the worse when it seems the chupacabra has followed him into town and a mistake was made with the locals.

I loved our main character Drake. He knows his looks make people rude, scared, and sometimes homicidal. But he doesn't let that faze him. He does what he can for his lost love. He doesn't let the stupidity or expectations of others stop him or make him into the monster they think he is. But my absolute favorite character in this book was the little girl Jessie.

I want to thank Michael Hebler for giving me a copy of his Western Horror "Night of The Chupacabra". I'm new to the western scenes but plan on getting my boots dirty with some western reads.

In the late 1800's Drake's family wagon is ravished by something one night. They may have got away. Drake left to die. Five years later Drake finds himself disfigured looking for this monster who took the better part of his life. Drake comes to a town in the hunt of his lost family and the monster. The sheriff believes he is like his wife "Looney Lucy" Drake is out for revenge now more to the town, then the monster "The Chupacabra"

Now with his sworn oath over his wife's grave he will get back there daughter being cared for (sorta) by a whore pimping out local woman as well. Is it the "Chupacabra" that lives on or the curse. Get your copy of Michael Hebler's Night of the Chupacabra

My overall thoughts on this novel is a great western horror but lack of suspense. The Horror is light for my liking, but he keeps you turning the page cheering on Drake hoping for his revenge. I will look forward to "Book 2" in 2013.

Drake and his family were excited to move out west and start a new life together. Yet there is an unknown evil lurking in the desert preying on the travelers making their journey out west. It is the Chupacabra and it needs blood to survive and will stop at nothing to get it. When Drake's camp is attacked, he doesn't believe his now missing wife is dead and he'll go to the ends of the earth to get her back. He travels onto a town, but the townspeople are mighty suspicious of the stranger and what Drake doesn't know is the Chupacabra has followed him there. `Night of the Chupacabra' was terrifying and fast-paced. I really got into the story quickly. Not everyone was as they appeared to be and little by little the truth was revealed to the reader. It was nice to read a story where the main character isn't super-handsome as Drake was deeply physically scarred by his encounter with the Chupacabra. It gives a new perspective on interpersonal relationships and first impressions, which I loved. There is so much Mr. Hebler brings to the Chupacabra mythos and it will be exciting to see where it goes next.

The Chupacabra Series: Hunt for the Chupacabra (prequel), Night of the Chupacabra (1), Curse of the Chupacabra (2), Legend of the Chupacabra (3), Dawn of the Chupacabra (4)
