So you know that WOLF SIGNS is set in a real location, right? The Granite Lake cabin is where my family went for an excursion when the kids were 10 and 12. On the technical side: this was the first book I submitted for publication, when we started on edits my brand new editor had to teach me how to use track changes–never had used them prior to that. While I was writing I had to keep stopping every time Robyn signs something and, well, sign it. Which makes it really tough to type!

So I rewrote the start of WOLF FLIGHT 3 times to get it right. The funny part is the first version was interesting, but more about how Tad found out about wolves in the first place than his and Missy’s romance, and…yup, letting the secret out about wolves was TJ’s fault. You want to read a snippet of it? Go HERE.

WOLF GAMES was the book when I finally felt as if I finally felt I knew what I was doing as an author. I had a plan for the heroine, and was looking for the perfect hero when I overheard an online discussion about how all heroes were assholes. Or broken. Or… and you know it, Erik showed up. My gentle giant. He’s well adjusted, not tormented and OMG SWEET–exactly what Maggie needed. He’s also damn smart. My favourite scene is when Maggie tries to rile him up by kissing a stranger and the whole thing falls apart as Erik goes and speaks Russian to the newcomers. <3
