Spotlight On: Sam Hossler

2010 Head & Shoulders Sam 023



What is your latest release and what genre is it?

A two book series: Silversmith Chronicles and Beasts of the Frontier. This was targeted for the Young Adults but has found acceptance with all ages. Early America fantasy. 


Quick description of it.

The setting is early 1800s in Western Pennsylvania. A beast has been ravaging the sheep herds and our two teenage hero’s set a trap. What they find is something never seen before. Granny from the old country declares it a werewolf. In subsequent attacks a young girl is not only bitten but raped by the beast. Armed with silver bullets the boys set out to destroy the beast that has now inflicted the werewolf curs on more residents. A close encounter with one werewolf almost ends their quest.

The second in the series, Beasts of the Frontier, finds our two hero’s on a winter deer hunt. Not only do they discover a werewolf but a new monster the Indians call Sasquatch. Life in the Pennsylvania North Woods becomes an education in survival. Can they kill the marauding werewolf who has partnered with this giant hairy beast, or will they become the prey?


Something unique about it.

I have tried to show how the characters, all from different ethnic backgrounds, find friendship despite their original distrust for one another. But it is really just a fun read.
