Third Person Shape Changing Words -Ross Eddy Osborn of Oklahoma

Have you ever wondered what one could say that would make you believe they were a flesh ripping werewolf, a fanged tooth, blood sucking vampire, or any such ancient, demon cursed victim? Not much they could say to convince you unless they began to change before your eyes. With this horrifying thought in curious mind, I came up with the shape-changing love story of a beast from another time lost in a new world of love, terror, but the same old rising moon.  Forever Found Forever Lost:
Local doctor is bitten by a werewolf (or so he thinks) and flees his home in Wicca Scotland, by makeshift sailboat, to where Viking legend lends the blessed sun does never sit. Hey, you don’t want to kill or infect anymore innocent souls during your lunar madness, do you?  
Well, the good doctor is found frozen to said sailboat’s wooden tiller, is accidentally thawed out by Alaskan natives, and ravages two famished polar bears that were set to feed on the fleeing Eskimos—who are sure enough superstitious now, having thought the strange sailor from the land of drift wood houses was truly dead….if frozen wide-eyed stiff with the sad frown of a beached whale.
And now, 553 love starved years later, the Eskimo’s demon sawbones will take a commercial jet flight south, unknowingly under the rising moon, to seek out a true moon mate, as well as a substantial medical grant for his anti shock formula, he's been lucky enough to receive funds for from a research center in Greenland.
Talk about a wild ride to hell and back when the beast comes alive at forty thousand feet as two hijackers take over the jet. You’ll understand when Charles Patrick MacHenery sinks his demon claws into one Cajun Beauty, Miss Amada De-la-re.  
My moon beast would take time to visit Oklahoma, if only to partake in famed BBQ ribs and delicious brisket at Leo's Barbecue at the South West corner of 39th and South Kelly, OKC. Strawberry lemonade and glazed over, strawberry desert cake would keep him howling at the moon, day or night.
He might then growl on down to the Cowboy Hall of fame to see exhibits from all over the cowboy world. He might create a little stir at the door, but hey, he paid his nominal admission price.

Y'all come, if you want to see the Okie sights--Rivers, lakes, Down Town Bricktown. We been here for a vacationing while now, too. Howllllllllllll!

  2. Another state with unique attractions. Thanks for telling us about them, Ross.

  3. My mom grew up in Norman, Oklahoma. She used to tell me stories of seeing the Indians wrapped in their blankets out on the streets. Yes, it was in the olden times. My dh and I drove through years ago and stopped and saw a friend of hers still living there who told us how big football is. My cousin is now building a home with his wife and children in OK. He loves it. Thanks for sharing with me. I'll have to send your pictures to my mom. She's 88 but is on the computer. She'll love them.

  4. Your book sounds pretty intense and full of action (especially on board the commercial flight!) I like how you integrated your character into a tour of your home state. Good luck with your book!

  5. Oh, Ross, this was so the quintessential YOU! Thank you for the book story and the Oklahoma story. I enjoyed this very much. Always a friend.

  6. Hey Ross, thanks for the tour of OKC. We've been there and saw the Cowboy Hall of Fame. What a neat place. Wish I had known about the rib place. It sounds delicious. My son went to the University of Oklahoma at Norman.
