Moonlight and Claws is an anthology of short stories, starring the Wolfman. But not your typical werewolf.
Where does the Hollywood version end and folklore begin? What is the truth about the wolfman, the werewolf, the were, the lycan, the skinwalker and shapeshifter?
You know what? It doesn't matter!
Because here between these pages, we invite you to explore and enjoy and shiver and cry and laugh and cheer and sigh and even fall in love with the amazing imaginations of seventeen authors, who explore their own particular twists and turns and reflections on just what it means -- or could mean -- to be the Wolf.
Just which version do you believe in? Lost soul -- cursed victim -- avenger -- motherless child -- star-crossed lover -- lonely heart -- healer -- music lover -- loyal friend -- hero?
Which version of the Wolfman most resonates with you?
Open the book, explore, and find out.
He could be someone you know. He could be the "boy next door." He could be you ...
If anyone wants a signed copy (just by me - haha) let me know! They retail for $15.99, but I’m giving a small discount of $15 each (plus shipping, if needed).
My story is Growls and Meows and it's a comedy. Ted Shaw is a werewolf who loves Broadway musicals and his five cats. He longs for a tribe. Will he ever find one??
LOTS of great stories by talented authors! If you love short stories that are not the norm for the Wolfman, this anthology is for you!
I had a wonderful time at ROOTED in New London, PA, for storytime in September and October! I’ll be there again on November 11th and December 16th. For more info on this wonderful store that supports local artists, authors, crafters, bakers, etc. go to https://rootednewlondon.com/

Whitstead Christmastide – a speculative Christmas Anthology
Do you need a little Christmas now?
Do you need a little speculative Christmas now?
Whitstead, December 1844
There has always been something a little otherworldly about the village of Whitstead; there are thin places, where the ordinary world touches on the realms of fairies, ghosts, and darkness. And this year, during the holy season of Christmas, various forces—dragons, demons, fae, dreams, and snow—act on the denizens of the town.
A dryad is on a mission to free something trapped in a mirror. A little girl prays for a Christmas pudding. A blind peddler sings in the town square. A gnome prepares for the mission of a lifetime. An alien spaceship crash-lands in the snow… And angels are on the move.
Charity and family love, healing and new purpose, visions and song, all awaken in the season celebrating the Greatest Gift.
It’s available NOW on Amazon – either paperback or Kindle! https://smile.amazon.com/Whitstead-Christmastide-Speculative-Steve-Rzasa/dp/B08SGCD31R/
My story, On Whom His Favour Rests, is about two guardian angels, Aar’in and Zophiel, and their adventures during the two weeks leading up to Christmas Eve.

WILLOUGHBY AND FRIENDS
Willoughby is a young and gentle dragon who loves making friends and learning new things. He lives in the land of Dern with his friends, Rosewings, Daisywings, and Violetwings (fairies), Chef Onslo T. Quagmire (an ogre), and his newest friend, Woodside the bat.
In Willoughby and the Terribly Itchy Itch Willoughby has an itch he can't reach. An itch he can't scratch. Not just a little itch, a TERRIBLY ITCHY ITCH! Nothing he does will make it go away.
What can a dragon do when he has a itch he can't reach? He calls for help, of course! See how some unlikely friends get together to relieve Willoughby of his terribly itchy itch.
In Willoughby and the Lumpy Bumpy Cake Willoughby has a problem. Tomorrow is Rosewings’ birthday and every cake Willoughby tries to bake ends up lumpy, bumpy, black and burned. How will he ever surprise his friend? Frustrated, Willoughby tosses the burnt lump of cake out his cave door where it hits someone on the head. Someone BIG. Someone Willoughby never expected to meet.
Is Willoughby in more trouble than just not having a cake for Rosewings?
In Willoughby Goes A Wee Bit Batty Willoughby loves looking at his fabulous treasure trove every night before going to bed. One evening, he hears a CRASH outside. A mysterious creature has flown into his back-scratching tree and needs help. What will Willoughby do? Help a new friend or protect his Treasure?
I really love this story as I’ve introduced my first special needs character, Woodside the bat, who has damaged radar. This makes him partially blind, and he crashes into things and gets hurt. A STEM feature is included in the back of the book about biolumiscent creatures and plants! Kim added glowing mushrooms and more into the illustrations as bats are nocturnal, and she needed to have ways to lighten up the pictures.
