As release week has drawn closer, I’ve been enjoying the company of another werewolf writer–the dynamic duo that makes up Moira Rogers. We share lots of things, including an obsessive love for our mutual editor at Samhain, Anne Scott. Other little fun things? Bree and I love charts and stats, although she’s much better at making them look pretty than I am. Bree and Donna write kick ass heroines, and their heroes often, but not always, like to blow stuff up–that’s Donna’s speciality. 😉
And as far as I know, I’m the ONLY person they’ve ever written a guest post for, because as Bree says–“I suck at guest blogging. I mean, it’s not the normal level of suck, I’m REALLY bad at it. I tend to be 173% convinced I have nothing to say.” Direct twitter quote.
The other day, I was forced to create a new tag on my blog. It was a question I figured someone had to be asking by now, even if the answer is anything but simple. The tag? Why do they always write about werewolves?
It’s true. Now granted, there are books by Moira Rogers that don’t include werewolves. (Err, wait here, I’ll come up with a few…) but the vast majority of the time, that’s where we’re at. Werewolves, shapeshifting wolves, wolfman beast wolves… any kind will do.
The thing that I love most about loving werewolves, though, is seeing how other people write them. That’s really my favorite part about all speculative fiction–the fact that the only limits are the imagination. When writing, I prefer the psychological focus on man fighting his inner monster. It’s not always about the fangs and fur to me, but what’s living under the skin.
When reading, I love it all. Some of my favorite werewolves are nothing like the ones I write. And that’s the way it should be, to me. Not about who got it right or wrong, but who’s fun to read, and who makes me go, “Wow! Werewolves are awesome.”
So those are Bree’s fav wolves. In a very fun twist, I’m sitting next to Kelley Armstrong during the signing event at RWA, so I will get to personally meet one of her WHEEE authors. 😀 (And grab swag for her–hey? What are friends for?)
Today’s contest is for a copy of Moira Rogers’ werewolf book—well, hmm, she’s kind of right. Tough to pick a book that doesn’t have werewolves in it! So let’s just open up her backlist. Any of Moira’s books, in your choice of ebook or print–if the book is print available. Full list is available on her website here. My favs?
