About the Book:  
Brock Koeman always hated werewolves and Others like them. While trying to trap a werewolf pack, he and his brother Chris were attacked and bitten—becoming what they have always feared and despised. While Chris fights for his life in the hospital, Brock faces another kind of battle: stifling his terrible urge to transform.

When werewolves kidnap him and the girl he loves, Brock discovers what it means to be Other—wondrous new sensations and experiences, overshadowed by constant danger—and the life that awaits him if he can ever accept his fate.

When I’m Not Writing
Post by Karen Kincy

When I’m not writing, I’m likely procrastinating by watching videos of foxes jumping on trampolines.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8xJtH6UcQY) No, wait, that’s research. My third book, Foxfire, does star fox-spirits, you know!

It’s not all procrastination, of course. I do actually work when I’m not knee-deep in a novel. I graduated college last year, after studying heaps of linguistics and literature. When I sold Other in my sophomore year, I wedged revisions into my spare time. Now, after a year of writing and working a bit as an Xbox game tester, I’m going back to school for prerequisites toward a Master’s in Computational Linguistics. I get to study what I call the three C’s: Chinese, Calculus, and C++. (Wish me luck!)

When I’m not working, you can find me playing with my pet betta fish or watering my plantlings, which is what I call my houseplants. I currently have a turquoise male betta named Draco, because he looks like both a dragon and a Malfoy, and four female bettas by the names of Luna (Lovegood), Rowena (Ravenclaw), (Moaning) Myrtle, and Padma (Patil)—they live in the Ravenclaw sorority tank, of course. I call the females She-Brats, since they’re extremely bossy and curious and will try eating anything, including my fingers. I rescued the first She-Brat, Luna, from a yard sale—I wanted to buy a giant glass jar, and they told me a fish came with it for free! Draco reminds me of a 18th century gentleman with a blue silk coat and lots of frilly lace. He acts like a puppy and will wiggle against the glass begging for food and attention.

Backtracking to my plantlings, I currently have a vast assortment of plants. I have three orange/kumquat trees—hard to tell which, since they haven’t flowered yet—that I grew from seed, and are now over five years old. There’s a Venus flytrap, a giant tomato plant on the balcony with giant tomatoes, the spider plants living in decorative Japanese coffee mugs, the philodendron draped like living wallpaper over the kitchen cabinets, the starfruit seedling that I didn’t think would actually sprout.... Yes, I live in a jungle.

I also like digital photography, hiking, geocaching, and tabletop role-playing. (Wow, this feels like I’m writing a personal ad. But I’m taken!)
