The story explores the arrogance of humans and our assumptions of power and control. The two fishermen in the story perceive they are in total control over nature but in reality it is a false sense of control.

For Jamie Greening, his childhood interest in monster movies and a peculiar street name in his neighbourhood were unwitting inspiration for his latest book, the “Deep Cove”, an action/suspense and science fiction short story about a lake monster, the Deep Cove monster. The tale begins when the main protagonists, Randy and Jimmy’, were violently attacked by the Deep Cove monster while they were fishing one hot summer night.
This encounter does not only set off a riveting, action packed story of survival that will keep the readers at the edge of their seat. Greening said that it also “explores the arrogance of humans and our assumptions of power and control. The two fishermen in the story perceive they are in total control over nature but in reality it is a false sense of control”.
Greening has penned four other stories published by Bard and Book Publishing. These are “Steve Chooses”, “The Trinity is not Mute”, “Speculation”, and the "2012 Collected Works Anthology”. Aside from that, he has written a book called the “Haunting of Pastor Butch Gregory and Other Short Stories”, contributed to the Abingdon Worship Annual for many years, and has both a novel and co-authored biblical studies tome that are now nearing publication.
His books unravel his writing style: realism, fantasy, humor and a bit of theological reflections. For “Deep Cove”, however, Greening said, “In many ways “Deep Cove” is a departure from my normal writing style. The brief story does include some elements of humour but mostly this humour flows from irony, irony only the reader gets because characters are oblivious to it. Theological reflection is mostly absent; however it is not void of religious ideas and imagery.”
