"Bloodthirsty Weasels" to Aid Animal Shelters

GREENSBORO, N.C.-First-time author Theresa "Terry" Bane has written a devilishly funny book, "The Bloodthirsty Weasels: On the Loose and Buck Wild," using humor to point out the bad behavior of people around us.

The book's characters, critters called the Bloodthirsty Weasels, demonstrate insufferable social atrocities that can be committed, but should not be tolerated. "It's not politically correct these days to say, 'Hey, that's wrong. Don't do that,'" stated the author. "I'm not only not afraid to say it, I put it into print!"

Through illustrations and quotes, Joe Everyguy is the hapless target of Bloodthirsty Weasel behavior. But not everyone falls prey to the Weasels. Bane plans to donate proceeds from book sales to animal shelters. "Dogs have a special place in my heart," she said. "The most special soul I have ever encountered came from a pound, and we taught each other so much. Everyone should be able to have their lives touched that way. Shelters need money to operate, and I want to give. If the Weasels don't like it, they can get over it."

"The Bloodthirsty Weasels: On the Loose and Buck Wild" is published by NeDeo Press, located in Greensboro, N.C. The book will make you smile, sometimes in spite of yourself, as Bane draws them as she sees them. Whether you laugh uproariously, titter nervously, or are downright offended, the Weasels will provoke a response. They may also open your eyes to some of your own habits that may be in serious need of readjustment. As for the critics-let he who is without weasel cast the first stone!

Bane spent a little over a year writing and illustrating the book. "But I have over 35 years, a literal lifetime, of experience in this field," she said, "and I have observed and been the victim of Bloodthirsty Weasel behavior in a variety of conditions and circumstances. Weasels are everywhere, like roaches and traffic lights. There's so much Weasel behavior out there, I'll be writing sequels forever."

The author, who grew up in the New York-New Jersey area, now resides in Pleasant Garden, N.C. She graduated from The Savannah College of Art and Design with a bachelor's degree in illustration and has worked as a graphic artist for ten years. She is currently busy at work on the Bloodthirsty Weasels sequel, which is due out next year.
