Post Civil War. Families move west to begin rich new lives, only some never make it. There is a creature that lurks in the vast open deserts of the west. It can only survive on blood and, although it prefers to prey on the weak and young, it will slaughter anyone or anything, once provoked. It is unnatural, deceptive, and difficult to kill. Word about the existence of this elusive beast has not spread since anyone who has crossed paths with it did not live long enough to tell of their account. Night of the Chupacabra is one man's journey to reunite with his missing family, while the lethal creature that separated them, the mysterious and ravenous chupacabra, is never far behind. Night of the Chupacabra is not only a gruesome regale of carnage, but a unique combination of science fiction bloodshed with a more poignant tale of lost love set against a Western backdrop. Night of the Chupacabra is an unflinching look at the impossible choices made for family, while knowing the consequences will ultimately lead to a fate worse than death.

About the author (2012)

Before becoming an award-winning author of his dark fiction Chupacabra Series, Hebler enjoyed a full-time career as a feature film publicist, working on multiple titles for Walt Disney, Pixar, Lionsgate, Lakeshore Entertainment, Warner Bros., Summit Entertainment, as well as the 2013 Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language Film, "La grande bellezza" (The Great Beauty). Born in Los Angeles County, thanks to a salesman and a homemaker, Hebler grew up with an interest in acting. While studying theatre arts at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California, Hebler realized his penchant for storytelling was better suited on the page rather than the stage. However, creating tales with suspense, laughter, and heart is not his only love. Hebler also enjoys volunteering with Meals on Wheels, as well as multiple organizations supporting the ethical treatment of animals.
