Things that go bump in the night!

How do you research werewolves?

This is one of the questions I am discussing over
on KD Grace’s blog as part of the ‘Things That Go Bump In The Night’ series, along with what details from myths were included in my story ‘The Last Werewolf’ – for instance, are they immortal and can only be killed with the ‘silver bullet’?

How do they shift shapes, eg, do they go through agony as their bones change or is it instantaneous.

These questions, and more, were particularly important since this was co-written with another author, the lovely Susan Laine, so we both needed to be on the same page!

Check it out.

But will the "just good sex with a friend" go any further, or will they drop back to their old insults?

Review on Amazon: This is a quick and fun read. It's nice to finish out the group of friends and see them all HEA. It has some hot scenes as well as Jennifer Denys' trademark humor.

Something you never knew about me

Something you never knew about me …. I used to be incredibly skinny as a child – in fact until I hit 40!

At school I was called Bag-a-bones or Skellington or Bonny. It made me very introspective and I spent years trying to regain my self confidence. I remember when I was about 15 at school and I said something to a friend and the boy on the other side of her said, “Gosh, she talks!” I had become so shy and reserved because of the bullying I hadn’t said a word to anyone other than my friends for years. Here's skinny me with my best friend (and dog!)

The turning point was when I took an evening class in history aged about 25 and I was top of the tests each week. I suddenly realised I was centre stage… and it felt good.

Then just as I started to put weight on and look good…. the weight stayed on! *sigh* (This was taken at an event when I was 42).

These days I do hula hooping to try to get rid of the weight (never thought I’d be in a position to say that!) but I have no problems with self confidence these days!
