From living with wolves and breeding what we now call “man’s best friend”, humans have gone all the way to almost exterminating what was once the most predominant predator on the planet.
My novella, Little Red Riding Wolf, tells the story of a werewolf pack that lives in the Colorado Rockies. What many of you may not be aware of it that there are no official wolves in Colorado, they were hunted out many years ago by ranchers and settlers. In fact the wolves we have in the US Rockies now were re-introduced from Canada in a controversial re-population program that has been fought tooth and nail by ranchers across the west.
Now there is evidence to support that introducing wolves into areas such as Yellowstone has had postitive repercussions by lowering the number of wild elk and increasing the number of Aspen trees. With a name like Jessica Aspen, how could I resist the temptation of the wolves?
The Were pack in my fictional town of Radon, Colorado has survived by their isolationist practices as well as controlling any outside jobs, such as Colorado Park Ranger positions. When that system fouls up and a stranger becomes the local forest ranger, everything is threatened. It’s no wonder that my ranger, Evan Brewster, finds the small town to be not just unwelcoming, but hostile.
Meanwhile Evan is seeing signs of wolves in a state where there shouldn’t be wolves. This is a career changing moment for the young biologist ranger. And a tipping point for Red’s brother Seth, who knows that Evan is a threat who must be eliminated.
