    This is differently about good and evil and the choice given to change from evil to good

    Very good answer and is the reason why I been struggling with writing the book. However, I do still feel that this story can be used in a way to promote Christian concepts. Especially with those captivated by darkness.

    The story that I have been writing has been sort of metaphor for my transformation from Occultist to Christian.

    My werewolf was a Pagan before his conversion, and he did not become werewolf from a curse, but was raised to be a shapeshifter.

    Personally I know of only a few that call themselves Christian and write such novels. It is interesting to note that Ann Rice stop writing about vampires when she returned to Christianity.

    I have been "going for it" without thinking there was an issue until one Christian took offence to some of the pictures I would use to illustrate some of my articles. Here is the link to the story that inspired the book...http://highvoltagewriter.hub

    Good answer-and yet I do believe that writing about such things as werewolves can reach young people who may not respond to books of a more mainstream Christian view. C.S. Lewis and Tolkien wrote of wizards witches and such.

    The problem that I am having is that to try and make the novel more authentic, I go into great depth in Occult practices for I could not see another way to write it.

    Thank you for comment and do think I am writing something that is unique that has not been seen in a book of this nature before.

    I am honored that I could help you decide to write on HP again. Personally I have a love/hate relationship with this site. When I first started to write the book I felt that I would be able to write such a book and still project Christian values.

    God gave man the right to choose between good and evil. Your choice in the end does not release you from your commitment to him. If you are of God you will do Godly acts.

    It does have that element to it and yet, that happens at the end of the book and it does have lot of supernatural aspects, both positive and negitive.
