More About the Author

I was born a poor, freckled child. Now I write books about strange creatures, things and people, and sometimes illustrate them, to boot.

This is exactly what I told my 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Ione Kopitzke, I wanted to do when I grew up. I remember she replied, almost crying, "Oh Linda, I think you can do better than that." Her picture is now in the front of my book, "Strange Wisconsin: More Badger State Weirdness." Right next to freckled little me in my "L" initial blouse. That book won a bronze medal in the Independent Publishers 2008 Best Book Awards, and a Midwest Book Review's Editor's Choice. See how neatly life shakes out sometimes?

Before I started writing books, I received an art education degree from UW-Oshkosh, taught art and was a cartoonist and newspaper reporter. I live in southeast Wisconsin with my husband, youngest son and Lhasa Apso named Grendel.

You might catch me on an episode or two of HC's Monster Quest and other TV and radio shows. Check out beastofbrayroad.com for updates.

I was expecting more interesting stories, but got more fables and history.
I love to listen to Linda Godfrey on YouTube, but not thrilled with this book

I love Linda Godfrey's research and eyewitness accounts. The book really makes you wonder what is being seen and what is really out there.

All in all I must say that the appearance of the book as well as the foreword made me sceptical about it's quality. But it exceeded my expectations by far and made me curious for her other books.
Not that it is all enlightening or something, I guess I am a bit too advanced in the topic of werewolves for that, but it definitely is an acceptable book.
I am not sure whether it would be good a book as an introduction to the topic of werewolves, since there are certain flaws in it which I will talk about in a minute, but it is readable and reveals some insights. In addition it had certain information I didn't had until them and Godfreys cryptozoological take on the topic was refreshing and it gives the reader some insights on how the topic might be received by people today.
Sadly the fact that Godfrey covers such a wide range of possibilities and is clearly more than sceptical of such "answers" as excessive hair growth or feral children it is strange and kinda disspointing that she did not draw connections to other topics.
Godfrey states the theory of the Cheyenne Dog-soldiers as a possible origin for the "Werewolves" like the Beast of Bray Road and while clearly being aware of the descriptions of these beings she neither draws a connection to the Cynocephali, which were reported all over the Old World, as well as Australia, and certain South and Middle American depictions show such beings as well, nor with the figure of Coyote who was often reported as a shapeshifter. In addition she doesn't offer an explanation why these sighted beings are werewolves in her eyes since they neither look like wolves but cynocephali and there is no evidence for them shapeshifting.

this book is a fun read has stories that is rooted in native american, japanese and other cultures at times this book can be silly but of course thats what this legend is its very silly to think a creature that walks on two legs all the werewolf is is a trick of the mind but anyways this is a great book.
