Shifters are fast becoming my favorite paranormal beings. I love the protectiveness, possessiveness, and the compassion for family.

When I set out to develop my own shifter world, I wanted the best of both the cat and dog worlds. That was when I came up with Ashwood Falls. Two Packs must depend on each other to survive and fight against their enemies—a rogue Pack called Onyx. The wolves and leopards came together to form one den and community where their people can rebuild their lives after the attacks that nearly destroyed them. So why two different Packs that are opposites and generally don’t mix well? Because I like tension and conflicts in my story lines, and I get to explore the differences between the wolves and the leopards.
