We're on day two of our journey with a look at their Red Ridge Pack series. Shapeshifting werewolves are hiding in plain sight in the mountains of New Mexico. They are The Red Ridge Pack.
The Red Ridge Pack Book 1: Pack Of Lies
The last thing Allison Wright ever expected when she moved to Red Ridge, New Mexico was to come muzzle to muzzle with the wolf of her dreams.
Seventeen-year-old Allison Wright is convinced she’s losing her mind. Uncontrollable mood swings, hot flashes, and the urge to punch anyone who gets in her way are suddenly becoming everyday occurrences. Before her erratic behavior gets out of hand, Allison’s mother finally comes clean about her dark secret. Mom is a werewolf, and soon Allison and her brother Aiden will suffer the same fate. When Allison reaches her breaking point, the family leaves their life in Texas to move to Red Ridge, New Mexico where they rejoin the pack that Allison’s mother left behind almost 20 years ago.
Unfortunately, not everyone in Red Ridge is thrilled about Allison’s arrival, especially when she attracts the attention of the very handsome, very taken, soon-to-be alpha, Cade Walker. Little does Allison know, her mere presence is causing a rift in a once unified pack. Not only has Cade been forbidden from being with Allison by his father, the pack’s alpha, Cade’s girlfriend, Kendall Stuart, will stop at nothing to get Allison out of the picture. Well on her way to becoming the next alpha’s mate, Kendall expects to rule the pack by Cade’s side even if it means teaming up with a rogue werewolf with an agenda of his own. Determined to get rid of Allison permanently, when Kendall and the rogue join forces, all hell breaks loose and no one in the pack is safe, especially not Cade and his true mate.
I'm Cade Walker of the Red Ridge Pack. I've been groomed to take control as alpha since the day I was born, but that all changed two months ago when the Wright family moved onto the estate. I went from the only son of the Alpha to having an older brother and a true mate. It's a long story...
Hi ya'll... I'm Allison Wright, one of the newest members of The Red Ridge Pack. Until a few months ago, I thought I was just normal teenager, but that couldn't be further from the truth. My new life as a werewolf is taking some getting used to, but my true mate, Cade Walker, makes it all worth it.
The Red Ridge Pack Book 2: Circle of Lies
|Circle of Lies|
Aiden Wright is trying to figure out who he really is, but the truth could cost him his true mate—or his life.
Life has always been easy for Aiden Wright. He’s smart, athletic, funny, and the ladies adore him. But when tragedy strikes, Aiden discovers the truth about who he really is, and his whole world comes crashing down around him. Aiden thought that being a teenage werewolf was going to be awesome, but it might just cost him the one girl who could make him whole.
Since her mother’s disappearance, Teagan Rhodes’s life has been littered with her father’s empty beer cans and his hollow promises to change. Convinced that others would only let her down, she keeps everyone at arm’s length—but resisting Aiden’s charm is proving to be more difficult than she thought. Throw in a psychotic werewolf hunter out to terminate the species, and one wrong move, one wrong decision could destroy everything.
Three months ago, I was a normal high school senior in Texas. Two months ago, my mom gave me some awesome news about my future. One month ago, my entire world was turned upside down. First by a lie, then by my true mate. My name is Aiden Wright and I'm the next Alpha of the Red Ridge Pack.
Do I have to? C'mon Aiden, I mean I'm not a shapeshifting... Crap. Everyone can see me saying this. (clears throat) Sorry, about that - I'm Teagan Rhodes, the newest member of The Red Ridge Pack. Well... I'm not exactly a member, I suppose. You see, I'm human, not a werewolf like the others on the Estate. But none of that matters since I'm the true mate of Aiden Wright, the Alpha's oldest son and possible future Alpha of the Pack.

In the Beginning…
It was October 2007 when we first sat down at a small round table outside of our local Starbucks. We thought we were prepared with a laptop, a notebook, a pen, and an idea. We used to meet on Friday or Saturday evenings and write together. Just two ladies, one notebook, and one laptop to share - we must have looked incredibly silly.
One night we were writing our first-ever BIG make-out scene, and it literally took us all night to write that one little part of the chapter because we kept giggling like a couple of schoolgirls. The entire scene was funny to us. Our hero was an angel, and for some reason, the idea of this angel and this seventeen-year-old girl getting all hot and heavy was simply hilarious. We will spare you all the dirty jokes that came from that night (we are classy ladies after all, but we will post one on our Facebook page if you “Like” it).
Needless to say, not much was written on days like that, but we were able to finish the novel in about a year. Since that night, so much has changed in our lives with regards to our writing.
Our first novel was released in November of 2010. Immediately we began working on our next, which, after many name changes became Pack of Lies. It took a year to find a home for Pack of Lies, but as soon as we did, the real changes began. The Red Ridge Pack series was born and so were the deadlines. Not having a year to write a single book, now we do most of our writing on our own, saving our Friday or Saturday meeting time for planning and plotting.
Probably the biggest thing that we have learned since becoming published authors is our need to have a thorough outline. Since we don’t write together much anymore (as in sitting next to each other), having a clear plan on where the novel is going is essential. For us, we even need to break it down further and have a chapter-by-chapter summary of what is to take place.
As it stands right now, in 2013 we are planning to release two novels in the Red Ridge series, a novella prequel to Pack of Lies, and a stand-alone short story. If someone were to have told us back in 2007 that we would have four titles out in 2013, we would have laughed just as hard and just as much as we did that night when the joke, “I’ll show you my wings, if you show me yours” was born. Oops!
