Interview with a Werewolf

In anticipation of Christine Bell’s release AWAKENING: Book Two in the Wolves of Pray series, Christine has allowed me to interview her sexy main character Sean Mulaney.

Sean, thank you so much for being here today, although I can tell by the glare you’re throwing in my direction that you aren’t too thrilled to be interviewed.

Listen, I might as well tell you right off the bat, this wasn’t my idea. Christine asked me to do it, so here I am. But I’m a busy man, so let’s skip the foreplay and just get to the questions. That work for you, Red?

Okay, let’s jump right in, shall we? Tell us a little about your pack – the Wolves of Pray.
We don’t usually talk about this kind of stuff. Christine says you’re cool, so I’ll give you a brief overview. We’re a werewolf pack, living in Pray Montana. Our alpha is Liam, his female is Amalie. We run a business that deals in real estate acquisitions. Anything else is pretty much classified. If I told you…I’d have to eat you.

*I place my hand around my throat and hope like hell he’s kidding* Um, moving on, you all share a house and send your children to a private school. Why is this?
The single members of the pack, along with our alpha and his mate, share a house because it’s practical. We have needs that can’t be easily met by a traditional home life. A large plot of secluded land where we can train and exercise, excellent security, and the camaraderie of our pack, just to name a few. For us, pack = family, so it doesn’t feel strange to live in a group. Being alone feels strange.
As for school, our kids need to learn things that traditional schools don’t teach. If you can find me a school in town that offers Stalking With Stealth, I’ll certainly consider a transfer, though.

Recently, a new addition joined the household; I believe her name is Chandra. How do you feel about her joining the pack?
Chandra’s good people. She’s really nice to my son Ryan and she’s a strong addition to the pack. She’s also dead sexy.

Wait, does she read this blog? You know what, can you just delete that last part?

On to a more difficult question. Your mate Sara was murdered and the pack has yet to find the culprit. How has the loss of Sara affected you and your son?

I can’t sleep, I can’t think, I can hardly parent my son. The grief is heavy, every minute of every day. I’m stuck in it. It’s like quicksand, trying to suck me all the way down. The only reason I even fight it is because of Ryan. Then there’s the guilt. I can’t even look at myself in the mirror. What kind of mate am I that I allowed this to happen? That I haven’t found the man who took her from us and punished him yet?
*Sean sits back in his chair and folds his arms, leveling me with a chilling glare*
The key word there is YET.

Do you think you will ever be able to find that special bond you had with Sara with another wolf?
No. And I think we’re about done here. *curt nod*
Thanks for your time.

Book Blurb:

Sean Mulaney’s beloved mate Sara is dead and her killer’s trail has grown cold.

Eaten up by grief and guilt, it’s an effort just to get through the day. Now, after a year in mourning, his animal instincts have reawakened. As Sean struggles to control the need clawing at him, along comes Chandra and she wants more than just passion.

But if she refuses, she might blow her once chance to convince him that she can rock his world and fill the empty space in his heart. Will Sean let love in, only to risk having it taken away again?
