I'm pleased to announce one of my favorite authors decided to stop by and tell us about her wonderful tales! Let's give a warm welcome to Terry Spear!
Tell us a little about Author.With all your published works and different genres, who’s your favorite character? The hero I'm just getting to know. :) So right now, it's Chester McKinley in Wolf Fever, Book 6. I love it when they start out as a virtually unknown character, although he has a part in Destiny of the Wolf, then add more layers to the character until he's complicated, sexy, and real. :)
How many books will be in your lupus garou/werewolf series? ??? As many as my publisher will allow! :) Right now I have sold 8. But my editor asked if I'd consider writing two more in the Highland wolf stories, so once I get somewhere in Taming the Highland Wolf, I'll be sending her a couple of more proposals.
In Deadly Liaisons, you have more than a few hunky vampires. Are there more stories in the works that involve your vampires? Will there be mystery and intrigue involved in these stories as well? I have Huntress for Hire I'm still editing, and Forbidden Love. Both chocked full of sexy vampires and yep, both romantic suspenses!
Who is your favorite vampire of all time? Frank Langella as Dracula. He's getting old now, but he's pretty sexy. Although I loved the ones in Interview with a Vampire also. Your favorite werewolf? (Other than your hunky heroes) I never read any werewolf stories before I wrote my own, just saw some in horror pictures, or spoofs on horror pictures. So can't say that I've had any favorite werewolf characters from other books. The ones I saw were definitely the monster kind, not romantic in the least. :)
(This is a fan question from my daughter and her friends)-- :) You write about werewolves and vampires. If you found out your soul mate happened to be one or the other of these supernatural creatures, which one would you prefer he’d be and why? *sigh* I should have known the girls would give me a really tough question like that. Hmm, okay, I asked my son and he said that he thought that vampires were more sophisticated, which made me think thus--if I preferred elegant balls and the opera, and the more sophisticated way of life--the vampire would be my soul mate. If I were more of a rugged type who loved to hike and live in the wilderness, who preferred out of the way taverns, and folk music and tenting, my soul mate would be a werewolf. :) And if I'm like me who loves both, I'd have a really tough time choosing between the two! Tell your daughter and her friends that that was a terrific question! :)
Tell us about your new murder mystery with The Wild Rose Press: Relative Danger. I've always loved Agatha Christie and her whodunits, but I wanted to write something that was sexy and romantic.
What do you find most rewarding about your writing? Sharing my stories with the world, hearing back from fans who want to read more, creating other worlds readers get lost in. Just like I love to read other authors' works and fall into their worlds.
What are your current projects and works in progress? Right now I'm working on Wolf Fever, Book 6 in the werewolf series. I want to write The Vampire...In My Nightmares, but I also have two more contracted books to write: Taming the Highland Wolf and Dreaming of the Wolf.
Tell the readers where they can find you: www.terryspear.com
Is there anything else you’d like to tell the readers? If there are characters you want to see more of, I'd love to hear it! Sometimes they end up having their own books, like Carol Wood in Wolf Fever, and Jake Silver in Dreaming of the Wolf, both of Destiny of the Wolf. This was based on fans' requests. :)
Thanks so much for having me, Karen! Hope everyone has a terrific holiday season!
