I sat down last year to write a winter holiday story and knew one of the characters was a leopard shifter. As I got into the story a whole world opened up. All these characters, shapeshifter at that, came to me chatting about their stories. I had no choice but to stop working on that winter story and plot a whole new series about leopards and wolves.
As for that winter story? It became the prologue for Ashwood Falls titled Winter Eve.
So why two Packs living together? Why not? It provides great secondary conflicts throughout the series. Wolves and leopards are natural enemies in the wild. In Ashwood the two species must learn to balance their human and animal natures to live together in peace and fight beside each other against a rogue group of shifters that wants control over all shifter races.
Ashwood Falls was born and stands right now as a 10 book series with the occasional novella here and there.

There comes a time when setting your differences aside isn’t just necessary, it’s a means of survival. After losing over half of their dens to a group rogue shifters, the wolves and leopards merged as one Pack, but living together is much more of a challenge then they expected.
