OK, I admit it – I’ve always been a sucker for bad boys. Guys with power. Infallibly loyal and protective. The guy that no one wants to mess with. The one that oozes danger, but doesn’t flaunt it. Dominant, but loving. Aggressive, but completely and respectively gentle at the same time. (I swear this isn’t a dating profile!) I don’t know any supernatural being better to fit this bill more than a werewolf. And that’s the biggest reason why I decided to write a novel about werewolves.
But the werewolves in THE MAYFAIR MOON aren’t your typical shape-shifter who turns into a canine-type of ‘werewolf’. Those in TMM are beastly and terrifying, dangerous and unpredictable, yet a human teenage girl can still fall hopelessly in love with one.
I love reading YA books, those that are more geared toward readers 17 and over and have adult crossover potential. That was the kind of werewolf novel that I desperately wanted to fall in love with, and believe me, I searched for a YA book like this and found nothing. The majority of YA ‘werewolf’ novels on the market today (and for the past several years) are the shape-shifter kind. Nothing wrong with them – just not something I’ve ever been interested in. So, when I ultimately gave up my search, feeling like I would never find a series with beastly, dangerous werewolves like you see in the Underworld series, that was when I decided I was just going to have to write my own.
And so The Darkwoods Trilogy was born. THE MAYFAIR MOON is the first in the trilogy and book two, KINDRED will be released July 2012.
