I’m thrilled to be here at Creatively Green because I firmly believe in nothing going to waste. I am a Green Queen, a tenant I carry over into my writing. Words and ideas are a terrible thing to toss away.  With my new “House of Terriot” series, I’m doing everything I can to Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle by:

REUSING characters from my “By Moonlight” dark paranormal shape-shifter series. No characters have been discarded in the making of this four-book spin-off series. Many fan favorites will appear in main or supporting roles because a good hero makes a great secondary character (and the other way around!). 

Those who’ve read previous books will welcome familiar faces now used in a different way and new readers will have cause to scramble to find backlist books in which they appear.  Though these four new books can (and should) be thoroughly enjoyed without having read the “By Moonlight” series, there is the option of going back to the beginning with MASKED BY MOONLIGHT or just to PRINCE OF SHADOWS and REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT where the Terriots become part of the “By Moonlight” world.

REPURPOSING a villain into a heroine. Why have a character serve only one function when they can adapt to a new one. Readers are used to the redemption of the bad boy into serious hero material, but taking a bad girl and making her shine has been an adventure. Sylvia was the perfect mean girl in PRINCE OF SHADOWS, the character you love to hate. In PRINCE OF HONOR, with my strong, silent-type hero determined to believe there’s good in the woman he loves, she goes through a difficult (and believable) transformation into someone you can really root for. Besides, former bad girls get all the best dialogue! Also, in bringing in the rowdy, dangerous and delectable Terriot brothers, former scary thugs, now fabulous heroes, you get an entirely new perspective on the “By Moonlight” mythology and plotline through their more cynical eyes.

RECYCLING words.  No plot points have been overlooked. The underlying threads of the “By Moonlight” books continue to weave through the “House of Terriot” (again, you don’t have to have read the earlier books to get pulled right into the fabric of the storyline). And because all words are valuable, look for extra content from those scenes that didn’t make the final word count cut. 

Go Green! (that also applies to me being a newly transplanted fan of Michigan State!) and help me reuse, repurpose and recycle with the “House of Terriot” foursome.  PRINCE OF HONOR, Book 1 is now available, and watch for Book 2, PRINCE OF POWER in late January!

The hunter becomes the prey, a prisoner to his own desire . . .

Turow . . .

Strong, silent man of integrity content to serve his new king as a prince in the turbulent shape-shifter House of Terriot. A tracker and relentless hunter, he’s used to running trails alone until charged with returning a traitor to their mountain top home to face the unforgiving judgment of their clan.  On the run with the bad girl he’s loved forever, the choice between duty and desire has never been more difficult        . . . or deadly.

Could the bargain made to save their lives become reality?

Sylvia . . .

Manipulative schemer or victim caught between a mother’s ambition and a rogue prince’s lust for power? Trust is almost as foreign as the idea of love, but to save herself from certain death, she must risk both on the good man who deserves them . . . from someone worthy. Trapped by the only one who believes in her goodness, will she betray him and run for her life . . . or stay and destroy him with a long hidden truth?
