Hello Terry Spear. Thank you to taking the time to stop by. I am honored to have you here. Would you like to read more about Terry Spears? Check out her last interview here.
Thanks so much for having me again, Marissa on Sizzling Hot Books! I’ve always been an avid reader of everything from true stories to fantasy and adventure and romance. But for a good long while I was too busy with being an Army officer, wife, and mother, and working on military courses and graduate work, to even read. And then my life changed–just like with the characters in our stories. My world was turned upside down, and that’s when I began to write romance. I also work as a librarian and make award-winning teddy bears that have found homes around the world even as far away as Australia and South Africa! Creating worlds in books and creating bears for others to enjoy gives me much joy!
For those who might not have read your books, what can you tell us about the werewolf series?
Your newest release is Wolf Fever, what can you tell us about it that we haven’t heard before?
Secondary characters are always fun to create. They help to showcase the main characters. And in this case, the barber who dresses in the old barber quartet style, wants to be Carol Wood’s suitor. In this story, I had fun showing a wolf pack at play, in their human forms, just as wolves play in their wolf forms. But during the game, the barber attempts to be an alpha and shows just how much he’s willing to get Carol’s attention, but he’s no match for Chester Ryan McKinley, who is intrigued to see Carol playing the game with such determination to win.
All the books are single title, so they can be read out of order. Wolf Fever is based on the pack from Destiny of the Wolf so if it were me, I’d read that one before Wolf Fever. 🙂 But each story can still be read by itself.
Which scene from Wolf Fever did you enjoy writing the most?
The dirty dancing part. My editor really loved it too. 🙂
What can you tell us about Carol and Chester from Wolf Fever?
She’s a nurse and a psychic. He’s a PI and wolf pack leader from another town. But he doesn’t believe she’s psychic and she doesn’t believe that’s why he’s hanging around Darien’s pack to speak with her. No one else does either. She’s newly turned and absolutely against shapeshifting, and fighting it with every ounce of her being. It’s fun because I haven’t done that with a character yet. Werewolves are well adjusted, you see. They love being who they are. Carol has a reason for not wanting to shapeshift, but I don’t want to give away the story. 🙂
It’s always the ones I’m working on at present. I fall in love with the characters and when the story comes to a conclusion, I always feel a little adrift, until I can run headlong into the next story. 🙂
What is next for the werewolf series?
I’ve had a number of readers request more of Bella and Devlyn’s pack from Heart of the Wolf and so I’ll revisit them and I want to do another Highland wolf story also. But right now I’ve got two more wolf books contracted that I’m writing, book 9, The Wolf and the SEAL, and book 10, The Highland Wolf in Paradise.
What are you currently working on?
The Wolf and the SEAL. Anything you can share regarding your current Work in Progress? This one is hot and sexy, but you know it can’t be anything but with a team of SEALS in the picture. So what does one SEAL do when a wolf needs protection? Meara, Hunter’s sister from To Tempt the Wolf, was always trying to find an alpha male to mate. Well, she’s definitely met her match in this story. Then it’ll be The Highland Wolf in Paradise as one of the brothers of the hero in Heart of the Highland Wolf (Jun 2011) goes to the Grand Cayman Islands to get their money back from a master deceiver and the botanist he must share a villa…well, suffice it to say there will be adventure, romance, mystery and humor–and wolves of course!!!
I love hearing from fans about which characters they want to see more stories about. It’s often how I come up with a book proposal to give my editor. Several asked for another story about Heart of the Wolf, about Meara from To Tempt the Wolf, and The Wolf and the SEAL (Book 9) was born, about Jake from Destiny of the Wolf, and Dreaming of the Wolf (Book 7) was written, and Carol from Destiny of the Wolf, so Wolf Fever (Book 6) was contracted. So you can see I love hearing from readers and the stories become a reality.
I also give free stories on my newsletter to thank readers and help tide them over until the next book comes out. I can be found at: http://www.terryspear.com/
