Charlie, Rick, and Katy have never seen a Bigfoot. Yet soon each of them will, separately, experience something inexplicable in the woods, something that makes them question their worldview, something that sets them on the path to their destiny.

Father and son Charlie and Rick Bergren go through the same events together but react in vastly different ways. Katy Gallagher, while hiking alone in the woods, gets shaken up by a strange series of events that will alter her future in ways she hasn't yet imagined. If you've read the Human Origins Series novels, then you know these characters well. If not, then take this chance to meet them. In Bigfoot Beginnings, find out how they first experienced the Bigfoot phenomenon, and how those events changed their lives.

This e-book contains three short stories, plus a bonus story from the collection The Bigfoot Effect (Human Origins Series: Backstories, Vol. 2).


From the Author

Every character has a backstory. Readers may not be privy to the entire background of each character, but the writer knows each of them intimately. Events from the characters' pasts only make it into a novel if they're vital to the story. But what happened to these folks before they woke up inside one of my novels? To answer that question, I started writing short stories to flesh out the background of each character.

In The Hunt for Bigfoot, Katy mentions that she's never seen a Bigfoot before. Yet she believes in this mysterious beast without question. How did she come by that belief? Also in HFB, Charlie is a disgraced history professor on the verge of getting fired for his interest in Bigfoot. What convinced him to risk his career by investigating the Bigfoot mystery?

And then there's Rick, a skeptic of the most diehard variety. He ridicules Katy and his father, Charlie, for their interest in Bigfoot. He proclaims that no such creature could possibly exist. But did something in his past foster his adamant skepticism?

In Bigfoot Beginnings, I explore these questions. I hope you will enjoy reading about these characters as much as I've enjoyed creating them.
