I write about wolf shifters, and one thing they have in common with me is they love family, just like real wolves. I was always close to my parents, and I raised my son and daughter on my own, so I’m really close to them too.

I don’t have a big family. All I have left is my son and daughter and son-in-law. Never had any cousins. Parents and my aunt are gone. And so that’s it. Just my son and daughter and son-in-law.

They’re all young adults now, and for some years, they have been gone, living in other areas of Texas or the country, though my daughter and son-in-law visit every Christmas, then bounce to his parents’ house in the same area. But my son is with the Air Force, and for the past several years, he’s had missions in Afghanistan during Christmas and he lives several states away.

So truly, the best holiday gift ever was for both of my children and my daughter’s husband, who is just as much a son to me, to be home with me for Christmas last year. I’m thrilled that they will all be here again this year to make the holidays extra special. I was in Scotland researching for new books, and my son happened to be stationed temporarily in England and wanted to come up and join us on a trip, but he couldn’t manage until after we left. If we are close by, even in another country, we want to make time to see each other if we can.

Several years ago, the kids and my son-in-law were all here for Christmas, and my son said, “Mom, are you sure the turkey’s cooking? I don’t smell anything.”

Sure enough, the turkey was sitting in a cold oven. The oven had decided to stop working.

Not to be thwarted, I thought we could cook it in the roaster oven. My son cut up the turkey and we cooked half of it in the roaster oven, and then worked on the other half after that with the lovely aroma of roasting turkey filling the air. We laughed and played games, and watched Christmas movies, and talked and opened gifts.

The crazy oven fiasco just made Christmas all the more memorable.

I don’t remember all the gifts, except for the Japanese lions my son gave me after his tour in Japan, but all that really mattered was the lovely time we all had together. I can’t wait for the gathering of the pack again!

In my stories, no matter if they’re wolf shifters, jaguar shifters, or other kinds of stories, family is so important.

Whether it’s Christmas or any other time of year, being there for each other means everything.

CJ Silver and his brothers have returned to Silver Town eager to reconnect with the pack. And with the she-wolf newcomers renovating the old Victorian Silver Town Hotel, it looks like the holidays are going to be very merry indeed.

Laurel MacTire and her sisters are excited to be living in a wolf-run town, but they have another motive- to solve the fifty-year-old mystery of their aunt's disappearance. When CJ gets a whiff of trouble brewing, his protective instincts kick in-now Laurel has a hotel opening to prepare for, a mystery to solve, and a brawny wolf shifter underfoot. Perhaps she should have resisted the temptation to kiss him so wickedly in the snow.
