Mystic Wolf aka. Kerry L. Marzock
Poet, Novelist, and member of Soul Asylum Poetry
I’ll be the first to admit. I am not much of a horror aficionado, but I do have my intrigue for a good scare. If you ask me about my opinion of horror as a genre in books or movies, I’ll say it’s always better if one looks past the blood dripping teeth of a growling werewolf or a snarling vampire that aims to leech off the inner sanatorium of its prey. It is creepy. Eerie chills will sneak into one’s soul when the realism of something like a ghost is actualized. This side of life often attributed to evil is one that science has not verified yet, but it also captivates the very core of human interest in the worlds unknown. Especially since the usual stereotype surrounding the character of demonic beings and creatures and the evil they breath is all that most dredge up when these kinds of stories are told.
Kerry L. Marzock found her own unique approach to grasp her readers understanding of nature and intent behind the actions of the possessed wolf without dwelling on preconceived notions that most people have about horror. She helps you to connect with the characters in relations to the situation they are in, in a similar manner to what Wesley Snipes did in the box office action trilogy – Blade. She described her book of poetry, Sea of Emotion<, as ‘a sweet recipe made up of a cup of happiness, several tablespoons of love and sensuality, a teaspoon of pain, with a few pinches of darkness.’ Soul Asylum Poetry and Publishing described Kerry L. Marzock’s author debut as ‘a book of everyday life where everyone who dreams of that never-ending love or special friendship will find meaning within its unique poetry.’
They pitched it urging that ‘as we struggle through life, heading for our final destination, we find many adventures and heartbreaks along the way—loves we wish we could reclaim, enjoyable events we wish we could relive, and of course, a family that is so dear to our hearts. Come along on life’s little journey as you turn every page and realize that others believe in the same way of life as you. Through these pages, you’ll find sadness, love, family ties, and loneliness all adrift on A Seas of Emotion.’
Kerry L. Marzock is a thirty year Philadelphia native, in Pennsylvania where residents are known for their undying love for the cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. For Kerry L. Marzock that love’s so much more immense that she wrote her first horror novel setting its cast and scenes in what she describes as a lovely, historical and mysterious city – Philadelphia. Kerry considers herself to be a hopeless romantic familiar with what ‘sadness, confusion, love and curling up with somebody special means’. As a consequence, she injected many of her personal feelings in “A Sea of Emotion,” with hopes that her words would touch people’s hearts in ways that would feel as if her own sentiments and tears became that of the readers as well.
‘Remember, when the moon is full, the howl you hear may not always be the lonely, mournful dog in the neighborhood, for the mystic wolf is not only real, but she is part of your imaginings.
Kerry wrote this novel “Raven’s Way” with hopes that it would not only captivate and startle its readers in some ways she even wanted them to be shocked. With each turning page, she wanted to increase the reader’s fright.
Roy Keeler made this statement after an interview with Kerry L. Marzock:
Raven’s Way is a journey of blood and death, romance and revenge, taking place on the streets of Philadelphia, where no one is safe…
From the first page of Kerry L. Marzock’s book, Raven’s Way, the reader quickly becomes engulfed in the tale of an unusual adventure in a world far from what most people are accustomed to. The plot is packed with ferocious surprises and readers should expect to experience marvels while discovering a species of a human within our world both unseen and unknown by everyday man.
Her main character, Johnny, is the most innovative character ever presented to the reading public by an independent writer in a long time and one of the most enthralling. Kathleen, the heroine in the book, ‘is a strong-willed homicide detective whose life will be completely subsided during the recurring events.’ This novel is an adventure, a horror story that encapsulates love, betrayal, a murder investigation, and hope.
‘Raven’s Rage’ is the sequel to ‘Raven’s Way,’ and it is an all-action second installment in Kerry L. Marzock’s Raven’ series. Following the challenges of Johnny Raven the main character in Raven’s Way, he exacts revenge on the creatures that devastated his life.
Set to depict the dark side of the historic city of Philadelphia, this story now takes its readers deeper into the realm of the city’s rulers of the night. Soul Asylum Poetry describes it saying ‘Their bloodlust is more terrifying than ever — and Johnny Raven intends to give them more of Philadelphia’s most eerie and infamous myths. Once bitten by infected teeth, man and wolf combine to sing in lonely harmony. The wretched mind of the man is now locked inside the shadow of a beast, to rip and claw and tear, but to forever cry and pray for everlasting peace.*
