When her deputy sheriff father goes missing, Lily Turner learns the quaint logging town of Pioneer Falls harbours terrible secrets – an unspeakable past connected to her family and a blood curse her father has hidden from his three daughters. When Morgan McAllister arrives in town, Lily can’t deny their mutual attraction. But falling for Morgan may derail Lily’s efforts to find her father and to save her younger sisters from the family fate. Searching for answers deep in the shadowy forests that surround the town, Lily will risk everything to uncover the truth. As hunters are exposed and rivals for the territory circle the Turner sisters, no one in Pioneer Falls is safe – especially with the full moon rising.

When a brutal death in Pioneer Falls is blamed on local wolves, newbie shifter Lily Turner can’t believe it – even her family’s rivals couldn’t be that cruel. That pack might be uncouth and aggressive, but they’re not murderers. But the residents of the tiny logging town fear another wolf attack, and even the Turners’ sworn Protector turns against them. Lily’s convinced if she could just expose the real killer, she might be able to prevent more bloodshed. That is, if her deputy sheriff father, himself a shifter, doesn’t shut down her unofficial investigation. Handsome wolf Morgan McAllister is there to support Lily, but his pack is clamouring for his return to London. Lily would give anything to keep him in town. She’s falling for him hard, even though she knows his stay in Pioneer Falls can’t last forever. As hunters prepare for an ambush during the annual Harvest Festival, Lily’s quest becomes a matter of life and death. The full moon is rising and without her most loyal allies, Lily must bring the killer to light or innocent wolves will die.

Thanks so much for hosting me, Tez!

I’m the first to admit my gateway into genre fiction was Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. All through high school and college, I devoured those books. I was a serious vampire fan. My friends and I traded the books, talked about vampires, and I thought about writing my own vampire book someday.

But then I found werewolves (mostly in my imagination) and I felt they weren’t getting their story out there properly. I wanted to write my own werewolf book and so I wrote Never Cry Werewolf, my first published novel. I’ve been in serious werewolf love ever since.

Why love werewolves? Here are my top five reasons:

1. Werewolves are alive. They may be cursed, but they can live semi-normal lives, no coffins included. No need to go to ground and rise again. Also, no blood drinking – that’s a plus.

2. Werewolves are living double lives. They have one self they show to the world and one incarnation that they keep hidden. As a mostly introverted person, I can relate. I try to blend in a social setting, but I feel more comfortable as my true self alone or with trusted friends.

3. Werewolves are passionate. In the world of my new series Pioneer Falls and in other stories, my wolves can be overcome with emotion, causing a transformation. Vampires, while passionate in their own way, never seem to be swept away by a feeling that anything changes physically other than fangs engaging.

4. Werewolves are warm. See #1 above. If I’m getting up close and personal with a love interest, I’d prefer them to have a decent body temperature. I’m a cold sleeper as it is!

5. Werewolves are loyal. In my stories, at least, loyalty is important to my wolves. Loyalty to family, friends, etc. It’s pack behaviour for them and comes naturally.

So, there you have it. Don’t get me wrong, I still like vampires. I may even have a vampire book in me somewhere, buried deep. But there’s something special about werewolves and that’s why I continue to write about them.

The plot for my new werewolf book has been simmering on the back burner for years. I hope you’ll check out Lily Turner and the other new werewolves in A Curse So Dark.

  1. Interesting, I didn’t realize how similar the two covers were until I saw them posted (essentially) side-by-side here. I do like it when a series *looks* like a series.

    Fun list of reasons why one should love werewolves! As an introvert myself, I sympathize with the double-life one.
