I'm a fan of the old pulp writers such as Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Jim Thompson and noir writers such as Patricia Highsmith and James M. Cain. It was easy for me to go from reading their works to reading Robert B. Parker, Lee Child, and Michael Connelly. For a break from blood and guts, I read Janet Evanovich.
Two major events have shaped D.J. Kitty Norville's life. The first was an attack by a werewolf that has left her battling her inner wolf; the second, was when an online caller asked "Do You Believe in Vampires?"When she answered in the affirmative, her radio show "The Midnight Hour" became a hit with her listeners, but put her at odds with her pack, vampires and other creatures of the night.
