Love Romance Passion interviews Julia Wildthorn the heroine of Terry Spear’s Heart of the Highland Wolf… making fiction reality!
Keira to Julia: Why are you drawn to write werewolf romances?
I’ve always loved the paranormal, but what’s not to love about a hunky wolfish kind of guy? Oh sure, vampires are pretty sexy. But there’s something about a wolf–the pack dynamics, the loyalty and protectiveness of a pack, the rugged nobility and hunter mentality, that draws me in to write about them and keeps me coming back for more.
Susan to Julia: Writer’s block can be such a bothersome occurrence. Did the Highlands of Scotland cure yours my dear?
Cure what? Oh, yes, my, ahem, writer’s block. The misty, cool weather, the lush green terrain, the woolly Highland cows, the ancient castle and beautiful forest, and all those hunky Highland men…yep, knocked that writer’s block right out.
Susan to Julia: Will your upcoming release include a Highland hero perhaps, or did you decide on the Western after all?
A Highland hero, but you see, one wrong word from some of the Highlanders I now associate with and I can jump right back into the Western theme. Sexy cowboys in leather chaps can be rather appealing too!
Susan to Julia: It’s been rumored that Ian and his brothers (Guthrie and Duncan) will be escorting you on your World Tour. What will they be hiding under their kilts?
Julia tries to hide a chuckle, but isn’t very successful. She’s sure she turns a little red, you know because of that red hair and fair skin and her face feels awfully hot. She clears her throat and smiles sweetly. You’d have to come and find out for yourself. Although, you might be surprised at their response.
Susan to Julia: In Heart of the Highland Wolf you finally reveal to romance readers worldwide who you really are. Now that its on paperback (Mass Market to be exact ) are you ready to tell everyone about your special qualities? Pick a quality: Seduction, finding secret tunnels, writing, or the spoiler.
Absolutely not! If I let anyone know where the entrance to the secret tunnel was and anyone else sneaked in, Ian would be on my case, knowing just who let the proverbial cat out of the bag. As to seduction, are you asking how to seduce a Highland wolf? It depends on the wolf. There’s not just one way to seduce a wolf, nor are all wolves the same when it comes to seduction. They come in all shapes and sizes and very much different personalities.
Susan to Julia: What did Ian whisper to you in Gaelic when you went hiking? (Eyebrow lift). I’m all ears!
Hmm, I’d have to learn Gaelic, but I can just imagine. He’s sexy, a wolf, and hot blooded. And that says it all, no matter the language!
Keira to Julia: So Julia, are you a werewolf romance author or an author who writes werewolf romances? Your readers want to know!
Keira to Julia: What’s your favorite feature here at Love Romance Passion?
Your “Get into Bed with the Author” interviews, but I have to admit that it’s not Ian’s favorite part of my being an up-and-coming romance author who writes werewolf tales. He doesn’t like to think that ANYONE takes me to bed at night but him! It has all to do with that wolfish “protectiveness.” *sigh* But he’ll just have to get used to it.
Thanks so much for having me as your special guest again. I hope that everyone enjoyed the interview. I have to admit Ian has been watching over my shoulder the whole time as I typed up my responses. He’s such a wolf. Thanks again!
