TITLE: My Dad's a Supernatural Investigator: Seeking Shifters
GENRE: YA Paranormal
The scent of bug spray assaulted my nose as I stumbled through the Modoc National Forest. Gloom crept in like ninjas on the prowl, and I tried to keep sight of my dad’s back in front of me. The last thing I wanted to do was get lost on a Bigfoot hunt.
“Shh…do you hear that?” Dad said.
He stopped then waved for everyone else to do so too. Our cameraman, Matt, angled his camera toward my dad then panned over to me. All I could see was his dark shaggy hair over the camera but I knew every sculpted feature on his face by heart. I mean, it’s hard to not notice someone I spent day in and day out with.
The faint sound of wood banging on wood filtered through the silence. I grabbed my thermal-imaging camera and swept the area for evidence of the big hairy sort.
“Dad,” I shrieked, hurrying over to the shrubs.
Yes! I bent down and examined a huge print in the dirt. It was easily the length of my arm from wrist to armpit.
“Oh, my gosh, Dad! It’s a print.”
My dad shouted out orders to his colleagues while our cameramen began to film the clearing. Tonight was our last night in the Modoc National Forest…not to mention the taping of this season’s final episode of Berry SI (supernatural investigator). My dad, Lou Berry is the host of the show. He’s paranormal investigator/cryptozoologist.
