Pattern Recognition

Baby giraffe, baby zebra, and then baby…whoops, no baby. Just a beautiful parakeet. I don’t have all my pictures uploaded, so I don’t have a lot of the photos that I can group in the “proper” pattern. But we could use our powers of imagination and envision that’s a baby parrot. 🙂

Have a great one!!!

Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas–Book Birthday!

Excerpt from Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas

Owen couldn’t believe his luck. Candice Mayfair was the beautiful white wolf he’d seen that day so long ago. Not that she looked like a wolf right now. He only knew she was the wolf, unequivocally, because he recognized her scent. After the initial shock of seeing an unfamiliar and intriguing Arctic she-wolf, he’d gone after her.

The whole pack had gone on a run that night, but they knew to stay far away from any campsite. He and the other guys had swum across the river to explore a bit. Cameron and his mate had stayed on the other side with the kids. He’d even swum back across the river to find her and discovered her scent had led right to one of the tents. Since she had moved into the tent, he knew she had to be one of their shifter kind. He’d even hung around the next day, waiting to catch a glimpse of her, but there were several women, and he had no idea which one had been her. Two blonds, a couple of brunettes, and a red-haired woman—none of whom looked like the picture he had of Clara Hart, though.

Being a white wolf in summer had made it difficult to blend in, so he’d had to keep well out of sight.

Candice Mayfair was definitely the author of the books on the website, though she didn’t look like the photo her uncle had of her, if she was Clara Hart. She had the same compelling eyes, different color, but they got his attention, grabbed hold, and wouldn’t let go.

He carried her to her couch and set her down, staying close, his hand still on her arm until she seemed to regain her equilibrium.

“The wolf pup was yours,” she accused, jerking her arm away from him.

“Wolf pup?”

“Yeah, wolf pup. Don’t pretend you don’t know about your own wolf pup.”

Then all the pieces began to fall into place. Campers. Campfire. Food. Corey, the wolf pup she had to be referring to, hadn’t just found the food like they’d thought. Candice must not have been a wolf until that night.

“You fed him? Corey? His mom wondered why he smelled of beef jerky that night. We thought he’d found some at the campsite. Don’t tell me…he bit you.”

Some days you never know what’s going to happen!

Tangling with a White Wolf―Best Christmas Ever, or Real Trouble?

Romance writer Candice Mayfair never missed a deadline in her life―until an accidental bite from a werewolf puppy turns her into an Arctic wolf shifter. She’s forced to isolate herself in the wilderness to cope with her unpredictable shifting while she works on her deadlines. After all, for Candice, Christmas is just another day.

Enter private investigator Owen Nottingham, a wolf shifter hired to find Candice so she can collect her inheritance. They have a real problem: she must arrive home in human form, and that’s not happening during the full moon. Besides, Owen has a new mission: to convince the pretty she-wolf her best move is to join his pack in time for Christmas…and to prove he’s the only wolf for her.

Tomorrow–Happy Book Birthday!

Spent all morning trying to get blogs posted for tomorrow’s book release: Dreaming of the White Wolf.

White Boo Bear has been adopted! The wolves are gathered to check out the fall colors. It’s a composite–my background from St. Croix, MN, the wolf pumpkin I picked up at the wolf reserve in NM. The wolves were a photo from Depositphotos and the scene is snow-filled. 🙂

I need to do one with the Arctic wolves since this is an Arctic wolf Christmas story. 🙂

Realty to Fantasy

I create stories, some based on some realty, and some made up. My world is as real as can be, just add some wolf shifters, jaguar shifters, bear shifters, or cougar shifters in and you’ve got a fantastical world.

But oftentimes those worlds are based on true happenings, lots of research and sometimes just a kernel of an idea from something on the news or in real life.

In Howling for a Highland Wolf, I really was in the Cayman Islands, and really did see all the banks with doors and that was all, the man wearing the dark suit standing in the lobby, a briefcase chained to his wrist.

In another Highland wolf story, I was at the castle ruins that is the heroine’s.

So when I went to drop off dog treats, toys, leashes, flea medicine, and towels at a neighbor’s house so he and his wife could deliver them where they were working at an animal shelter due to Hurricane Harvey, I had the perfect image. Setup: Wife is on the driveway talking on her phone. Cell phones don’t work in the houses very well, so a lot of folks have to go outside to talk on their cell phones. Something in the roofs that protect from the heat of the sun. See? More little tidbits for a story.

I drive up, and she’s looking at me like who are you. And I ask if they’re the ones collecting stuff for the shelter.

“Yes! I’ll get my husband.”

I wasn’t sure why she needed to get her husband. There were two large bags of supplies, and I carried one and then the other to their car. Out comes the husband. In boxer shorts.

Sculpted chest, tall, shoeless, great legs, and a big smile. I mean, I’m a romance author, right? So immediately, I’m thinking of a wolf story.  Boxers and a smile. I told my acquisitions editor. She told me if I think of the story, she’ll publish it. lol

Okay, so it’s been bad in the Houston and surrounding areas. Along our main road, the cleanup continues. All of the businesses on one side of the road are on lower ground and were flooded. On the opposite side, higher ground, so their runoff added to their across-the-road neighbors’ flooding issues. The road was under water also.

Here is what happened to one man when he returned to his flooded home:

Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman’s Office responded to an intruder call at a residence near Lake Houston. Upon arrival, deputies were met by a large alligator who made his way into this flooded home. Constables will soon be delivering the alligator back into his natural habitat.

Image may contain: people sitting

The alligator was returned to his home, and now the poor house owner has to start his cleanup.

We were very fortunate. No flooding, except for areas of the yard, and no alligators. That we’ve seen. Yet.

Hope your day goes well.

I’m Not an Artist

My parents were both artists. They  had their own styles, and they were good. They won a contest their first year of marriage for artwork they had  done.

Kids draw. I drew. I was told I was not an artist. I would never be an artist.

*sigh*

Don’t tell kids that. They might not be able to sing (me either), or draw more than stick figures (I liked to draw trees), but if I’d continued to practice (for years and years and years), MAYBE I could have learned to draw. Or not.

There is something to be said about talent. And some have a natural talent for some things, and others don’t. I had a friend who drew horses. She drew movement. Just from memory. And she didn’t own horses. She was an incredibly gifted artist, and this was from when she was young! I had another friend who could make the most extraordinary paper mache creations. In art class in junior high, I made the most standard, basic form. Paper mache and I didn’t get along.

So my artistic talent lies elsewhere. And it’s art. Just a different form of art.

 

I am an artist. I am. In different kinds of mediums. So there. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you aren’t talented. Who knows… if you persist at learning how to? I might even be able to draw the best trees ever.

I was watching a video on how some creative photo artists got started and became ultra successful. Many didn’t have formal training. They had a natural talent. And a drive to excel.

I’ve created stories since I was little. It came naturally to me. But creating stories, and learning how to put them on paper in a better way took some learning. For photography, I watch videos and read articles all the time. For my bears, I learned that on my own, creating and re-creating patterns to make them better. I embroidered for years and years before that, and added that to my personalized bears. So some is practice to make the art better. It came with time. I’ve never been one to create something and become an instant success.

Have a great and talented day, no matter where your creativity lies. Don’t ever let someone discourage you from reaching your dreams.

Birds in the Wild

 

 

Aren’t they beautiful?

Baby just went home with momma. Both are sick with colds. She’ll come back tomorrow when her momma and daddy are looking for a new car.

But this is the first chance I had to post my blog.

I’m off to write on Billionaire. I changed the opening and now I’m getting more into it. 🙂

Sarandon Silver’s book is now called: All’s Fair in Love and Wolf

Have a super day!!!

Falcon Fae!

I’m still waiting on the print version’s final approval, but it should be soon. And Barnes and Noble’s link isn’t up yet, but will update as soon as it is.

Besides working on Billionaire Wolf Christmas today, my daughter asked if I’d do a newborn shoot for a friend and I said I would.

So next book up is Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas. 🙂  It releases in October.

Falcon Fae (425x640) (2)

Falcon Fae

(The World of Fae, Book 9)

Prince Owen is tasked with the mission of encouraging Sigrid—a magic user, a falcon fae like him, and the granddaughter of the traitor who tried to take over Owen’s grandfather’s kingdom—to return with him to the falcon fae kingdom to fight their enemy. Only, as far as Sigrid is concerned, Owen and his royal family are her enemies.

She is their last hope to fight a powerful mage, but she’s not buying it. Not until the dark fae queen advises her to do what her grandfather had tried to do before she was born—take over the kingdom!
