Though I haven’t been writing much lately, when I have been writing, it’s been shape shifters. I’ve always loved shifters. Some of my favorite books, from the Nanook Warriors series to the current free story I’m writing for my newsletter subscribers features shifters. Though the usual suspects, wolves, bears, big cats, always make good characters, I also like enjoying branching out.
My book, Bjorn’s Mate, which originally released probably close to seven or eight years ago, featured a polar bear shifter. Back then bears weren’t as popular as they were now, and happened to be my best selling book ever.
I loved diving into the Arctic and writing about polar bear shifters who happened to be military officers for the EU. The world I set up, complete with paranormal elements, remains one of my favorites.
Though I admit that since knowing a bear lives on our camping property about an hour from us, and having a neighbor call to tell us that a bear was going through the woods at the tree line between our properties, I love writing about the big animals and shifters that might be found here in the Ozarks. (We haven’t seen it since, though the one near our cabin is tagged and tracked regularly.)
So it’s with much joy that I’m diving into a free story that I’m writing for my newsletter subscribers. Mated to the Wild comes out with a new chapter a month. And it combines a few things that I’m passionate about. Shifters. Homesteading. And goats. Okay, so I think goats are adorable and we don’t have any yet, but they are totally on our “add to the homestead” list. This story is only available free to newsletter subscribers right now while it’s being written, so I encourage you to take a look at it. After all, once you meet the alpha of the Nail Creek Pack, you may just want to get lost in the woods for a while…
