A Jaguar on an Easter Egg Hunk?

I’m off! And that’s a reason to celebrate. Although I’m working tomorrow and that is not!

Okay, now you know I write urban fantasy, right? So some of it is pretend. Right? So we’re going to pretend. While writing my wolf series, I shared pictures of real wolves on an Easter egg hunt. They had fun eating the colorful eggs.

But can you imagine finding pictures of a jaguar eating Easter eggs?

So here’s as close to it as I could get. 🙂 Just squeeze your eyes tighter, click your heels twice and repeat after me, the stripes on this tiger are spots on a jaguar, and the rock he is inspecting is one huge Easter egg.

There. And if we concentrated hard enough…we’d have it!

The one already ate the whopping big Easter egg, didn’t share with the other, and he’s ticked off.

And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! But wait, everyone can see something different in a story. What do you see???

Happy Easter!!!!

The SEAL in Wolf

April 12, 2011 at 7:29 am (General) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The Oregon beach in the story…

One of the most exciting things about having a new book that’s coming out–this one in the spring of 2012, is that well, it’s done, for one thing, but the COVER is coming!!!

I send the cover information to the marketing department, but I never know what clever ideas they’ll come up with. No matter what, I always love them though!!!

So my title looks to have changed from The Wolf and the SEAL to The SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing.

And one of these days I’ll be happily displaying the award-winning cover!!

Set on the Oregon Coast, Finn Emerson and Meara Greymere have their work…and ahem, pleasure cut out for them as assassins take on the former US Navy SEAL and his team members, making Meara the primary target.

Have a delightful Tuesday! I survived Monday! What about you?

Jaguar Shifters are…Hot

Okay, so I wasn’t exactly thinking jaguar this morning…although I’m working on the story….jaguars do not use hair dryers, and they don’t get all fuzzy.

But did you know they absolutely love the water?

Here’s a jaguar shifter before.

Here’s one after.

Off to training this morning, but wish I was here…well, at the beach with the shifter…although they say mud baths are good for the skin. Wonder how they’d be for the fur???

Would you like to join this shifter???

The Beast Within

April 2, 2011 at 8:40 am (General) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Cover for 'The Beast Within'

The Beast Within

Ebook By Terry Spear
$3.99
Published: Apr. 02, 2011
Category: Fiction » Young adult or teen » Romance
Words: 88706
Language: English

Kitta Sjoni is a troubled teen, but not in the usual sense. Plagued by visions of 10th Century Viking marauders is only a tip of the problems she faces. Killing a curse and taming the beast within—that’s her goal, but can she survive the test?

Bjornolf Jorgenson, beleaguered by marauder nightmares, is drawn to Kitta, the clone of the girl from his visions. She’s the only one who doesn’t shy away from his uncontrollable rages, but she draws trouble like a sponge soaks up unmanageable spills. What is his real connection to the spunky teen and can he help her, like she wants to help him before it’s too late?

When I lived in Oklahoma, we lived just a few minutes from a place where Vikings had carved runestones in rocks. Norsemen graffiti? Leif Ericson was here?

In any event, I was always fascinated with the idea and so THE BEAST WITHIN was born–a love that could never die between two teens of Norwegian descent, a curse that transcends all time, a berserker rage that cannot be quelled. Berserkers were thought to shapeshift in ancient times. Did they? Really?

🙂

Have a super Saturday!!!

Pets in Stories?

April 1, 2011 at 7:36 am (General) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


Have you ever read a story where a pet takes over a story? Or really adds to the story? Makes the characters more … human?

Who would have ever thought wolves would have pets?

But there are numerous cases where predator and prey live happily together. 🙂

These big sleepy canines are Irish Wolfhounds and they actually killed wolves, not the other way around. But in Heart of the Highland Wolf, they’re the MacNeill clan’s pets. Why?

Those who had more money could afford to have hunting dogs in days of old. In this case, the Irish used wolfhounds to unseat English knights from their horses.

Since the MacNeills started out in Ireland, that was the reason for their having the wolfhounds. But through the ages, they’ve always been the best of companions.

It’s already April 1st, no fooling, and June is just around the corner! Get ready for hunky Highland wolves!!! 🙂

Hope you have a delightful TGIF. I’m going to try and get some new tires on my car today before I have none on the highway…and have lunch with an author friend. But for now? It’s time to get back to big jungle cats!

So what kind of pet would a jaguar cat have???
