Do werewolves get old?
One of the best parts about reading paranormal books is seeing how each author creates her world. You have to make rules for your kingdom, then stick with them. Supernatural beings can have many characteristics. How can they be killed? What are their weaknesses? Their strengths? Do they live forever? I want my were-creatures to age. Yes, they live longer, healthier lives than humans but they do grow old. And it sucks! That's one of the themes I had big fun playing with in Sins of Long Ago.
Imagine you're an alpha werewolf, used to being in charge, to getting what and who you want. One day, you start to notice lines on your face that weren't there yesterday. You move a little slower in a fight, want to come in sooner from a moon run. You're aging, like you knew you would, and like us regular old mortals, you start to think about serious shit. The fun and games of youth are over and your thoughts turn to the future. To family, friends, and maybe leaving behind some kind of legacy.
I had a challenge with one particular scene in Sins. My editor asked me to change it, because it made Vincent, my hero, look kind of sleazy. The scene is important because it helps show his vulnerability when he's treated differently than he expects, due to his "mature" nature. I rose to the challenge and came up with a great compromise that my editor and I both loved. Vincent keeps his morals intact but I still got to make him suffer a little at the hands of a wily woman.
I hope no matter what your age, you enjoy reading Sins of Long Ago as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Werewolves and humans don't mix. Until danger forces an alliance and desire demands satisfaction.
Leading his pack of werewolves keeps Vincent plenty busy, and now with a predator out to harm them, life is more perilous than ever. The last thing he needs is a woman to complicate matters, especially one who sets his body and soul on fire. She's a human and a witch — totally the wrong woman for him. Even if he could take a mate for his own, he refuses to put her in the danger his life has become. No way can they ever be together. Werewolf-style love is fine anyway. No permanent partner, no bullshit, no heartache.
Genevieve has never known true love. Cursed by an enraged woman long ago, females in her family are doomed to go insane if they fall in love. Life has been fine without a man around-- until a hot werewolf drops in and captures her heart. Though they have plenty of obstacles to overcome, Gen knows they can work past them. Tell that to Vincent, as he struggles with old pack rules about love, sex, and consorting with humans.
As Vincent searches for a killer, deals with death among his own, and tries to keep his hands off Gen, she attempts to end her family curse. Together, they must find a way to break free from the sins of long ago.
