The October issue of Night toDawn magazine contains over 15 vampire short stories, including my short story, A Problem with Werewolves. My story is about a female vampire who was assigned by the vampire council to kill a terrible creature. Before she can do that, she must fight her way through a pack of werewolves guarding the demon. Her mortal boyfriend, meaning well, volunteers to help her before he hears the complete mission. Not wanting to back out, he finds himself in a battle that should have taken place in hell.

Nessa is attacked by a white werewolf
When I turned around, a tall, muscular, blond haired, young woman stood between me and the door. Her large hands held a six-foot long round metal pipe with both ends capped by pieces of steel sharpened to fine points. Silver coated the last few inches on the tips. She had a feral look on her fine featured face. The way she held the pipe, and balanced on the balls of her feet, indicated her training as a martial artist.
No human, however skilled in the martial arts, could hope to take on a vampire, even when armed with a lethal weapon. When I examined her more closely, I saw the heavy covering of fine blonde hairs on her arms. She was a werewolf, requiring me to be more careful in fighting her.
When I took a step forward, she jabbed at me with the pipe, but not with the intent of stabbing me, but rather to test my reaction. I took another step, which gave her a chance to pierce my heart with the point of the pole. She jabbed at me, but before it reached my body, I grabbed it with both hands and snapped it towards the ceiling. She responded by snapping downwards on the pipe, breaking it in half. This caught me by surprise. The force of my own momentum carried my half of the pipe into the ceiling, almost jarring it from my hands leaving me defenceless for a moment...
