Hell-O! My name is Larry K. Hockman - AKA: Defender(TM), author and publisher of "Moon Madness" - THE Premier *Cat-Lovers* ACTION novel, available *NOWHERE* but here and combining all of the categories of Animal, Adventure, Romance, Murder, & Mystery into a *SINGLE* literary work!
I wrote "Moon Madness" for the cat-lovers of the world, . . not only as a tribute to one my own fallen dear companions, but also to highlight the almost human characteristics our feline friends exhibit and problems which can arise during their co-existence with mankind. It also serves to bring to light the plight of the great cats in their steady decline in numbers from mankind's ever encroaching "progress" by the destruction of their natural habitat, merely his selfish need for "more" room, or worse yet, . . illegal *poaching* for their fur or use in "medicine" and "religious" ceremonies. Author's Note: Though "Moon Madness" is based in *fact* and starts out near my hometown (Tyler, Texas), it is nonetheless *Mainstream Fiction* and characters are not meant to represent *ANYONE* either alive or dead!
"Moon" was discovered shortly after he had been dumped in the roadside weeds alongside his gunshot mother. Helpless and innocent, he was cruelly left to starve as the fight for life within his mother's body slowly ebbed in fits of agony. Rescued and raised by Vince, a local state park warden, Moon grew quickly into a rather large hybrid cat of questionable origin, . . . The gentle feline traits he inherited from his domestic Manx mother are constantly displayed as he continues to grow, both mentally and physically, and adapts to form a loving, inseparable bond with his human saviour. Soon, his phenomenal feline instincts and abilities become almost legendary within the realm of service and friendship during his coexistence with human counterparts.
But Moon has a dark side, . . . comprised of negative human emotions, . . . revenge, hate, and disdain. Spiced with the innate cunning and stalking abilities within the genes of his wild heritage, he is fully capable of becoming a formidable killing machine on a second's notice! He carefully suppresses this side of his nature, except when hunting in the woods with Vince. His secret and genetic origins are eventually discovered by Anna, a beautiful wildlife biologist whose empathic abilities with all cats are also carefully guarded for her own safety. She, Moon and Vince form a permanent bond after Anna rescues Vince from a certain frozen death induced by an untimely altercation with a huge wild boar.
Moon's dark side only begins to surface when his "adopted" family is eminently threatened by an unknown and unseen foe, and apparently without motive by human standards. Only Moon instictively knows all of the facts dating back even before his birth. The mystery deepens till finally, the wild side of Moon lashes out and he kills a student in a bloody, violent rage! Moon suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of mankind's law with half of the country hunting him for murder. Only Anna and her protege', Stacey, know of Moon's innocence, but have no way of proving such without revealing their empathic abilities. They must trust and protect Moon until he can lead them to the hard evidence which will vindicate his actions. Conflict and danger for all involved in his unerring quest abound with every twist and turn. Moon is unjustly forced to live within his dark side personality to ensure his own survival, . . . Emotions, trust, frienships, love and the law are all stretched to unimagined limits between Moon's human friends and those who would hunt him to his death before he can clear himself. Truth, Justice, and the American way are tempered with the wisdom of discretion in the end, . . .
