WEREWOLF MATINGS
A werewolf can lose his mate and still survive, unlike werecats. Werewolves exchanged bites, usually where their shoulder and neck meets, and there’s no time limit. The mating bite usually happens during sex, and the scar stays since the bite mark shows a werewolf is mated. Nobody dies, nobody gets sick. 

When wolves mate humans- the bite infects the human and they take on some of our characteristics. They aren’t able to shift into a wolf, though.

* werecats had to exchange come and blood. Probably will want to top Carter at least once.



Pack house






















Located in the forest on his pack lands. Ultramodern cabin – three levels. visually spectacular. The design grew out of constrictions that become opportunities – such as the incredibly difficult site which drove the building upward and resulted in its being largely lofted out over the ground around it.

A concrete vertical element in the center allows for the drastic cantilevers on each of the three stories of this house, which in turn create open-but-sheltered outdoor spaces below them. From the inside, this creates open interior spaces that thrust out into the forest and create a connection with nature. 

The solid core of the building becomes the main circulation and serves the spaces surrounding it. A combination of steel, concrete, glass, aluminum, maple and bamboo bring together natural materials with modernist choices – synthesizing the contemporary style of the home inside and out with the surrounding natural landscape.



The Clowder

is one of the 4 betas.
Personality: A little stuffy and anal. Stickler for the rules.




His cat: Mostly black in face with a little brown and red mixed in there. Tortoiseshell is a color pattern, often confused with calico. Tortoiseshell patterns have no white in their coats, just black and brown or red. Calico coats usually have large patches of the three colors, whereas you can see that these tortoiseshell cats have a more blended or flecked appearance. The coloring is caused by a combination of certain genetic traits that mostly occur in females.
Aidric does not respond well when he figures out for werewolf’s mate. In fact, after they meet in Dolf’s kitchen, Aidric turns around and leaves.

Dolf gives Alpha Lovelock Aidric's cell number.

Aidric wonders what he’s done to deserve having a werewolf as a mate. Aidric doesn’t like change. He comes across as being a little bit of a stuffed shirt and born. Aidric is the unrelenting of all of the betas. He slow and steady.

Home: There’s a stream in front of his log cabin

  1. Super excited about this book and love your work but your comment has been bugging me. The reason calico and tortoiseshell patterns are typically seen in females is because those patterns require two copies of the x chromosome. The only way for a male to have it is to be XXY, commonly called Klinefelter syndrome. It can cause a wide range of defects including feminization. But I'm still looking forward to this book!

    1. You are absolutely right on the XXY. It can happen, but it is *very* rare. Rare male torties have the chromosome constitution XXY, and are heterozygous for the X-linked fur-color genes. But because their sex chromosome balance is messed up, these male cats are sterile; they are, in effect, “intersexes,” but is believed they are identified as males because they have male-like genitals. A male tortie kitten was found in Scotland.

      So yes, I did take a little artistic license on Aidric being the color cat he is lol. :)
