Authors Note: I have often wondered what drove the woodsman to hunt the wolf in the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. Certainly, he was more than just a ready hero. After all, he was a woodsman, not a hunter. He carried an axe…not the best weapon to take along when hunting a big, bad wolf. Therefore, I figured if nobody was going to tell me, I would just write it. The woodsman had to start out as a boy, and the axe had to symbolize something special to him, a memory of his father, perhaps, ...more

Not the same old visit to Grandma's house!

I spent half of my lunch hour today, reading this story.

I was unnerved in the best way.

This is a fresh take on a well-worn theme, done with a skill that has me thinking Mr. Fields will be a household

The Woodsman and the Wolf packs quite a descriptive and suspenseful punch in its few pages. I was glad that I read it outside on a sunny day. The story begins with the viewpoint character, Will, home alone doing chores and taking care of his younger sister, and quickly turns into a nightmare that will (presumably) haunt "the woodsman" for the rest of his life. The characters are well-drawn and the story intriguing, particularly as the author sets it up in the title as a "prequel to Red Riding ...more

It reads more like an excerpt from a longer story. Or it should have been a longer story.. It's Short & Sweet (:
