Howdy, Delighted Readers!
We have a visitor today who is no stranger to the blog as author guest or when we review her highly anticipated new releases. As a big fan of the SWAT series, I was pleased to put a question to her that had me curious.
Welcome to author, Paige Tyler and congrats on the release of Wolf Hunt!
In what ways has the SWAT series grown since you first began writing it?
Has it ever gone in a direction you didn’t expect?
When my Special Wolf Alpha Team (SWAT) Series first started all the way back with Hungry Like the Wolf, the Dallas SWAT Team was simply a pack of alpha werewolves serving and protecting the citizens of Dallas while trying to keep people from learning their secret identities. A major part of this first story was how the hero, Gage Dixon, met the woman he’d spend the rest of his life with, Mackenzie Stone, The One for him.
Since then, the series has drifted into several different areas. The first of these is the way the heroes (or heroines) become a werewolf. In my mythology, werewolves are born, not made with a bite or scratch. My werewolves are born with certain DNA material that predisposes them to wolfing out if they go through a traumatic, adrenaline-inducing event.
In the first book in the series, Hungry Like the Wolf, I mentioned that defining event in passing as part of some pillow talk between the hero and heroine. But I quickly realized this traumatic event was such a critical event for each hero and heroine. One is a cop who gets ambushed during a call. Another is a woman attacked by her stepfather. And another is a soldier blown up while defusing a bomb. So I decided to show those events to the reader in the form of a prologue in each book. This turned out to be great decision, and these prologues have turned into some of the most dramatic scenes I’ve ever written. I have fans sending me emails in tears the moment they finish the prologues just to let me know how much they were moved.
Another area that took on a life of its own is the hunter arc I’m weaving through the series. While I’d definitely planned to bring in some people who hunted my werewolves, the arc has changed as the bad guys became more menacing, more capable, and more terrifying.
Thanks, Paige! Those are great extra details to learn about the SWAT series.
