Why Werewolves and Other Things that Go Bump in the Night?

I loved werewolves since I was young. I was taken by the fact that the creatures who were so feared are in fact loving, caring, and run in packs made up of members of their families. I always liked the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood (although eating the grandmother went a bit far). I thought the wolf in The Three Little Pigs was just ensuring survival of the fittest, and I felt like the wolf who led the Nothing on the Never Ending Story was pretty darn awesome. The problem was, as much as I loved wolves and werewolf lore, I didn’t want to be “that werewolf author”. I wrote stories with everything BUT werewolves, and while I loved them, I felt there was something missing. So what did I do? I became THE WEREWOLF AUTHOR!
Werewolf Academy Book 1: Strays

Published: August 13th, 2014

Werewolves are struggling to survive. Jaze and those who remain of his pack build an Academy to protect the children who endured the genocide. 

Alex and Cassie arrive as orphans after losing everyone they love. The twins find themselves in a new world where they have to survive the politics and dangers of being a werewolf in a world that wants them destroyed. 

But outside forces have found them. Can Alex protect his sister and survive the attacks of a man who wants them dead and will stop at nothing to see it happen?

Werewolf Academy Book 2: Hunted

Published: August 13th, 2014

The threat towards Alex and Cassie has intensified. Alex may no longer be safe at the Academy. 

Drogan will stop at nothing to find him, and the deadly force the Extremist is prepared to use threatens anyone Alex is with. Can Alex find the reason for the attacks and stop Drogan before everyone the werewolf cares about is in danger? 

Alex has to find the source of the questions that have put both his heart and his life on the line, but the answers might be more than he is prepared to accept.
