Book Description

Jason Bristol, ex-prize fighter and expert animal tracker, and part-time drunk, teams up with beautiful wildlife biologist Norah Phelps as they pursue a man-eating predator that threatens to derail her father’s prize real estate development project in north central Idaho.

Against the majestic pristine backdrop of Idaho’s Bitterroot Wilderness Area, the adventure unfolds. Jason, with Norah’s assistance, soon discovers the ghosts of his past are nothing compared to the battle he’s undertaken.

Smilodon. A saber-toothed cat. He’s angry, he’s frightened, he’s hungry, and he’s 12,000 years from home!

SMILODON 75,000 words or about 300 pages

4.0 out of 5 stars Smilodon April 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This sci/fi story would provide great material for a motion picture. The main characters have strong, appealing personalities, and the outcome of their encounters with genetic mutated feline from the past leaves a reader in a perpetual state of anxiety right up to the very end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure! March 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once I started reading this book, I was so creeped out I wanted to stop reading, but I couldn't stop. The book is well researched and the writing is simply outstanding, with fast moving action and building fear of Smilodon, the giant cat who's more dangerous than any creature in the Pacific Northwest, including the grizzly bears. This was written by one very talented author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put this book down! November 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love "creature" books and am always on the look out for new ones. This ranks right up there with Jaws & Jurassic Park. The book is well written, characters are believable and the only thing wrong with it is there isn't a sequel or a movie based on this book yet. I immediately searched for more books like this & was hoping Alan Nayes would have another book with a crock, bear, etc like this. Living out in the country I was actually searching the hills, pasture, and horizon for this big cat when I went out! Great read! I would highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars fast paced and entertaining May 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the kind of action adventure thriller that I love to read. It is obviously an ourtageous premise, however that is why it is fiction! Some of it was predictable. The characters were well developed. Some were the stereotype that you expect in this kind of story but they still made me scream out loud to them to "wake up stupid"! I read this book while on vacation last week sitting at the evening campfire and sometimes the noises in the woods made me jump! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to be scared and surprised when they read. I am giving this book 5 stars because it gave me what I wanted and there were no typos or grammatical errors like other Kindle books that I have read. I especially liked the ending. Spoiler alert: There is a lot of violent graphic death in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I've read in a while. It was hard to put down. Even if you're not a SYFY fan you'll enjoy this one. Loved the characters both good and bad. And the Saber tooth made the perfect predator.

Good action yarn. Well written (unlike some of these cryptozoological stories). Fast paced & not totally unbelievable. Well worth the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars good until the end October 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Was well written. Good characters and description. Kept me wanting to read more. Would recommend to friends.
I like stories that take place in wilderness. Really couldn't wait to finish this book. Felt like I could see myself in the areas described. Well done.

Issue- The book just ENDS. No "this is what happened" next. Just an abrupt stop at the end of the book. Was kind of a let down after such a great read.

More About the Author

I live in Southern California but still consider myself part Texan by birthright. I was born in Houston and grew up in Dallas. I've resided in California since the mid 1980's but get back to Texas as much as possible. My first two published novels--GARGOYLES and THE UNNATURAL are biomedical thrillers. Actually THE UNNATURAL could also fall into the horror genre as it is a pretty bizarre tale. BARBARY POINT is a love story about a successful young woman who falls in love with a fishing guide. It was written on a suggestion from a former agent.

I have several other projects in the works. HEMLOCK POND is a horror story about a young woman and her son who move into an old farmhouse with a haunted pond. Boo!

GIRL BLUE, another pretty bizarre story, is about a world renowned sculptor who becomes haunted by his last work. Oh did I mention the sculptor is terminally ill?

SMILODON is the story of a huge cat that terrorizes a small town in the majestic Pacific Northwest. This one will grab you and not let go--yeah, that sounds like a cat.

PLAGUE is the riveting sequel to GARGOYLES. Fasten your seat belts, close your eyes and pray like hell because the world as we know it is coming to an end.

RETURN TO UNDERLAND is a middle grade children's adventure story that includes dinosaurs and cavemen. Ooooh!

Very soon I'll be releasing my first paranormal romance. THE LEARNER will be the first book in the Learner Series. I'm excited about gettng this one out there. It should arrive from outer space sometime in November. Yup, you guessed it--the story involves space aliens!

Then on December 1st I'll release my holiday novelette, ST. CLAWS. Love the holidays!

My favorite football team is the Superbowl champs GREEN BAY PACKERS. Sorry Cowboys. But when GB is not on the gridiron--Go Dallas! Great Cheerleaders, too!

I enjoy the outdoors and as a side note I'm one of only a few individuals to ever swim across Wisconsin's chilly Lake Winnebago. Does this make me a better writer--probably not.

When I'm not working on my next project, I enjoy relaxing and fishing at our family vacation home in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
