Read full description of the books The Mystery of the Rougarou:A Nick Landry and Billy Boudreaux Adventure
It’s the first day of summer in the swamps of South Louisiana. Twelve-year-old Cajun boys Billy Boudreaux and Nick Landry are preparing their “Swamp Camp” for an upcoming camp out when they encounter the elderly Mr. Pierre as he makes a mad dash to escape the legendary swamp monster, Rougarou. Breathless and terrified, he vows to abandon his home in the swamps of Pierre Part, Louisiana, and to never return.
Doubtful that the creature is anything more than a myth and wanting to help their neighbor, Billy and Nick set out to solve The Mystery of the Rougarou. In the course of their adventure, they stumble upon the hideout of an escaped convict, Lufroy Aucoin, and his dimwitted cousin, Gator Bait. To make matters worse members of the hillbilly mafia, run by the ruthless Roscoe Clinton, will be arriving soon to purchase the stolen property Lufroy has stock piled at this remote location.
After being captured, our young heroes must use all the skills and knowledge they have of this dangerous environment to not only make their escape, but to survive what will be the most difficult challenges they have ever faced. The boys will introduce you to the unique beauties of the swamp, unfortunately, with beauty, comes danger.

Michael Hoard grew up in Southern Louisiana where he attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana (Currently University of Louisiana at Lafayette) for two years as an Art Major. A 9 to 5 career in an office was completely forgotten when he got that first summer job working the back deck of a seismic survey boat on the Gulf of Mexico. He has remained in the oilfield and on the Gulf his entire adult life.
Now, at 50, he lives in Middletown, NY with his wife Kathy, who he has been married to for 8 happy years, "the best years of my life". He is an avid fisherman who spends hours on the lakes and reservoirs scattered throughout the Hudson Valley searching for that one Walleye or Bass that will be his lifetime trophy. His two daughters complete his life and as he says, "I can die tomorrow a happy man!"
A FORSAKEN SOUL, Michael Hoard's debut short story was written as a challenge to himself 15 years ago. One day while reading a book a thought popped into his head, 'I can write a book'. Immediately he picked up a pen and paper and started writing. The manuscript sat in a box in the back of his closet for many years...until 2016, when it was finally published.
A second book is in the works, THE MYSTERY OF THE ROUGAROU - A Nick Landry and Billy Boudreaux Adventure. This book has been a joy for Michael to write. It brings his imagination back to the days, as a boy when he explored the swamp lands that surrounded his community.
