Linda Godfrey on Beyond the Edge: Friday Night

This just in from Beyond the Edge radio:

Join us this Friday night, June 6, 2008 as Sean and Eric welcome Werewolf investigator and author of the "Beast of Bray Road" Linda Godfrey to the show. Stories and reports from the back roads of Wisconsin tell tales of wolf like creature roaming the countryside terrorizing the local residents. Tonight we try to get to the bottom of this hairy scary mystery.

Linda Godfrey is an author, researcher and artist based in southeastern Wisconsin who writes about all things strange, but specialized in tracking reports of a large, upright canine creature she calls the Man-Wolf. She has written two books on the topic (see some reviews below) and a third volume titled Werewolves due to be released in early 2008 by a New York publisher.

She is also the author of Weird Michigan and co-author of Weird Wisconsin, both by Barnes&Noble, and the author of Strange Wisconsin, released in October 2007. Strange Wisconsin follows in the tradition of the Weird series with old and new folk myths and urban legends, strange roadside objects, eccentric people and places, haunted homes and businesses, creature and UFO sightings, and more. Full color photos and illustrations.

Linda's degree from UW-Oshkosh is in art education, and she taught part time while also working for ten years as a reporter, columnist and cartoonist for The Week, a county newspaper based in Delavan, Wisconsin. She won several first-place national awards from the National Newspaper Association for best feature stories, and additional state awards from organizations such as the Wisconsin Donor Network, Wisconsin Council on Developmental Disabilities, and Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Her editorial cartoons were featured in "Best Editorial Cartoons 1991, 1992, and 1993." She continues to create both fine and commercial artwork and illustrates her own books.

She lives with her husband and youngest son in a lake neighborhood surrounded by possible creature-harboring woods, and for fun, shoots pix of her 50s dollhouse collection with added conversations for her Myspace blog, Linda's Bloghouse. She spent much of 2007 battling breast cancer with surgery, four months of chemo followed by radiation (during which time she wrote two more books) and is now recovered and doing very well.

Join us this Friday night from 9:00 pm est to 11:00 pm est as we hunt for the truth with our special guest Mrs. Linda Godfrey and we talk about werewolves and strange wolf like creatures that may or may not be lurking in the area of Wisconsin.
