Interview and Giveaway with Ana W. Fawkes

What inspired you to become an author? 

– I just simply love to write and share stories. It’s fun to sit down and create something.

Do you have a specific writing style? 

– Not sure if I have a set ‘style’ … I just think of an idea, outline it a little, and then get it out of my head. From there I read it, figure out what I like and don’t like and then go back at it.

Do you write in different genres? 

– I guess… yes. I’ve always loved the steamier romance books. It’s what I read, so it’s what I write. I’ve always been a bit of a closet reader of paranormal and now I have the chance to be in it. Writing Full Moon Mercy allows me to bring in wolves, bikers, hot romance, and great characters. It’s a dream come true.

If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

– Paranormal right now is just so fun. I love the wolves who are bikers. I love it because the bikers are so big and tough as it is… they carry weapons but the ultimate weapon is themselves! Because they can shift and become something bigger and stronger…

How did you come up with the title for your latest book? 

– I usually let the title come to me while I’m writing the book. I find something within the story that could ‘tell the story’ in a title. The Secret Wolf fits it… the relationship between Lucas and Leah builds off a secret.

Do you title the book first or wait until after it’s complete? 

– As said, I try to do it while writing the book. Sometimes it’s a scene or a part of the book that makes me have that AH-HA moment with the title. Usually, I end up with five or six titles and then have to pick one.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? 

– At the end of it all, from bikers to wolves, the premise is about a brotherhood between the guys in Full Moon Mercy. They fight each other and they fight for each other. It’s hard to branch out of that, but Lucas does it with Leah. There’s a message of hope and acceptance behind it all, too.

Is the book, characters, or any scenes based on a true life experience, someone you know, or events in your own life?

– Obviously I’m not a shifter nor have I known a man who could shift into a wolf… but I’ve had my fair share of the bad boy, biker thing in my life. So, yes, there are parts of the book (minus the paranormal elements) that are true to my life.

Book Description:

Welcome to the world of FULL MOON MERCY.

This isn't just a book about a MC... this is about a brotherhood, a group of men who share a bond not just within the MC, but within their souls...

They're men. They're beasts. They are... FULL MOON MERCY.

Sitting next in line to run Full Moon Mercy Motorcycle Club, Lucas Trowwer has kept his fair share of secrets. Whether it's the cover up of murders in town or the fact that all the men that sit at the table are truly beasts on the inside, Lucas knows the line between paranormal and reality is very thin.

When bodies start piling up in town, the evidence points to a rival shifter crew looking to take down the MC, and the last thing Lucas needs is to save an innocent woman and fall for her. His trust must now reside in a woman who is beyond beautiful... and completely human. If things couldn't get any more confusing, a one night stand from Lucas's past comes forward with news that could change the path of Full Moon Mercy and Lucas is trapped within secrets, romance, and bloodshed.

There's a war brewing in the town of Mercy... and deep inside Lucas's beast of a heart.
