About Malek Montag

 

I have been writing on and off for the past thirty years, developing and perfecting my craft and always striving to be better than my best by working through self-help books and learning from other authors skills and tips to take my work forward.

 

Recently, I have taken the self-publication route with this the first NOVELLA following on from the publication of two collections of erotic-romance short stories. You’ll find links these above. Up-coming titles to look out for are Marianne and Mz Exquizite, other novellas that take a dark twist amid the hot sheets.

 

I also write in the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genres. So, look out for The American (Horror); Five Dark Run (Sci-Fi); Doctor Swain’s Rainbow of Remedies (Fantasy), all currently works in progress. 

 

Or check out my two Channillo series, Orlova the Assassin and Trazz III. Both are in the sci-fi genre.

 

I live alone with my imagination and Money Tree in a not so spacious one-bunk Hilton, and spend my time working, writing, reading, and looking after my bestest pal in all the world, my son The Dude.

Spotlight: Where Wolves Talk


WHERE WOLVES TALK
by D.L. Lewis


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:



Kitten, an American tabby residing in England, is a frustrated cat. He knows his place in the world: he was born to kill. Killing, after all, is what felines are supposed to do. Confined within his Lady's house, however, the young fellow is deprived of the opportunity to hunt live prey. The mansion is a sterile playground for a predator; offering nothing more than furniture which allows itself to be brutalized far too easily. The ambitious cat is bored and hungry for a challenge.



Kitten learns of a passage hidden in his Lady's library: the Door, which leads to an unknown world. The cat has been told that the source of all evil dwells openly in this place. The feline is eager to fight the sinister personage and goes through the Door with no hesitation.

The tabby finds himself in what appears to be a forest like any other in England. It doesn't take long for him to learn that this is a very different place.

Written in the basic style of classic stories like THE LORD OF THE RINGS, WATERSHIP DOWN, and THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, this novel can be appreciated on different levels. To some readers, it's an allegorical tale: thought-provoking and filled with symbolism. To others, it's an adventure-filled page-turner.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt One:


The little silver tiger tabby had everything, it seemed. The fortunate fellow had been blessed with a fabulous home in the country northeast of London; this grand mansion provided by his Lady, with over a hundred fascinating rooms to explore, and countless flights of stairs for dashing up and racing down. Along with the palatial digs came the exquisite sustenance the cooking staff lavished on the feline with loving care. Surely few cats were lucky enough to dine on food fit for royalty; delicacies such as sweet fresh salmon flown in via helicopter from a remote Scottish loch and poached into pink perfection by the household’s Swiss chef. This entrée was customarily followed by an antique plate of Sèvres porcelain bearing hunks of blue-veined Stilton. As Kitten licked the creamy cheese from his French dish’s illustrated surface, he could enjoy a painted scene depicting Hercules in  the act of capturing Cerberus; the vicious three-headed canine of Greek myth. Snatched from his guard post at the entrance to the underworld, the hideous dog snarled and struggled in enameled vain under the sandpaper friction of the tabby’s rosy tongue.

Such an existence was the most pleasant and thoroughly civilized one a house cat could hope for; that much was certain. This particular house cat, however, spent a great deal of time at the mansion’s windows; his glowing amber eyes staring with relentless longing at the wildlife that moved about through his Lady’s forested garden. Yes; the wildlife: the Wild Life.
