Two cub newspaper reporters from the Detroit Times stumble onto the story that could make them famous.Jeb Porter and Katie Kottle join hands with Louis Dingman, a seasoned reporter, to pursue the sensational scoop of a lifetime. Their chauvinistic boss, Cory Pillbock, sends them on a spirited discovery mission to uncover a murder.Their mission--to uncover the fate of a backwoods hermit, apparently murdered by a blunt weapon of unknown origin. They discover that bizarre behavior of deer near West Branch, a busy hunting and tourist stop in northern Michigan, is causing hunter concern and links to several deaths. In their travels, they encounter humans and deer strangely influenced by an apparent brain-bending disease leading to a horrific conclusion of murderous intent. Whatever it is, is spreading. Is it a pandemic virus or a mysterious toxin?A search into human history provides uncanny references to similar strange occurrences possibly linked to a mysterious grain fungus toxin existing throughout the world. Did this illness cause the bewitching behavior of Salem women? Or the murderous behavior of Jack the Ripper? You be the judge. Be prepared to participate in this heart-pounding adventure.The story takes you on a captivating journey of intrigue, eerie undertakings, maddening events, thought-provoking dialogue and a love story ending. “A smart, creepy, can’t-stop-reading trek through a could-happen series of deadly events and mind-altering consequences with lots of twists and turns.”"Interesting references to Salem witch trials, Jack the Ripper, and ancient writings--make it seem very real."Interview With the AuthorIs Buck Fever a hunting story?No, but deer hunting plays a part since it is a huge sport in Michigan. With the advent of the Ebola virus, we tend to think that all pandemics start in some other country, but that isn't always true. They can start anywhere and by any cause.Is this your first book?No, my first book was Nutcracker: Travels Through An Alien Mind. Buck Fever was my second book and Slave Dog Journals, my third. They were published out of order, though. All three are distinctly different. Buck Fever is definitely the creepy end of the spectrum. Nutcracker is pure alien abduction popcorn fun, and Slave Dog Journals is a Cozy Mystery Thriller about the start of World War III against terrorism set in the near future—a little tongue-in-cheek at times. You either get it or you don’t.What sets you apart from other writers?My books don’t solve every problem or issue that the main characters encounter. Not everything in life has an answer—at least an answer we can understand. For example, I have some paranormal references in my books, but they sometimes remain unsolved. I have false plot lines, and the path to solving is sometimes a dead end. Some readers like that, others don't—but it reflects real life.What do you try to leave with your readers when they finish your books?I hope they learn something about themselves. I want them to think. My characters are ordinary people pushed into extraordinary circumstances. Readers have a chance to put themselves into the story—what would they do? This can make people feel vulnerable, and not everyone likes that—some want the super-power hero to save the day—it’s what a lot of young people daydream about. As we get older we know life doesn’t happen that way.
