My Story: I Am Wolf

My other passion apart from writing is animals. When I was a kid animal stories were just about all I wrote! I’m absolutely thrilled Gentle Footprints is been received so well.

It was hard to choose the animal as I love all animals. I suppose if anything I am really a cat person, however, the story that gave me the idea for this anthology, The Red Queen is about the plight of the last ocelots in the wild and was published in the Bridge House Anthology In the Shadow of the Red Queen. So I needed to choose something different.

I’m not entirely sure why I chose the wolf, although there has always been something mystical about wolves and they feature heavily in literature.

I Am Wolf is slightly unusual. Although the story is very much about wild wolves it is actually the story of a feral child that was reported to have been raised by wolves in Russia. The story of the child, Volchitsa (meaning female wolf) is told through the eyes of Amy, New York reporter sent to cover the story and dealing with her own issues with abandonment. Amy feels a strange connection to Volchitsa and Amy is someone who finds it hard to feel a connection to anyone. She has issues with love, with men, with people.

The story is about misfits needing to belong and through the harrowing story of Volchitsa we see the plight of the captive animal and we see Amy plunge into her obsession with wild wolves… but there can be only one ending…
