My story blurb:
The Beast Under the Bridge
***I had a blast researching this Texas legend. I discovered a half-man, half-goat creature is also known to roam in a couple other states. I was disappointed to learn I missed attending the Lake Worth Monster Bash hosted by the Fort Worth (Texas) Nature Center and Refuge by a few weeks.
The late Sallie Anne Clarke, a well-known researcher of the Lake Worth Goatman self-published a book The Lake Worth Monster of Greer Island in 1969. She claims to have seen the creature three times over her years of research. Southern Fried Bigfoot, which aired on the Documentary Channel, features an interview with Sallie Anne Clarke about the encounters.
Nick Redfern, a ufologist, cryptozoologist, and author wrote a great blog post here about the Goatman.
Stephanie Erb, a local Texas author wrote a picture book, Cam the Man Hunts the Spooky Goatman .
I have two additional stories to craft for this collection, which is yet to be titled. My goal? To self-publish and travel Texas sharing the stories with middle grade readers, especially boys, about the wild legends living right here in their own state.
And next year for the Lake Worth Monster Bash, I'm so there. I wonder if Ms. Erb would mind sharing her author space. :)
