Writing with Wolves by Teri Wilson

Hi, everyone!

Happy New Year! I'm thrilled to have a brand new Love Inspired book out this month. ALASKAN SANCTUARY was a great joy to write. It takes place on a wolf sanctuary. My son lives in Denver, Colorado, and on a visit last summer, my family went to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide and got to hang out with some amazing animals.



The entire time I was there, I kept thinking, "Wow, this would be such a great setting for a book." So I just kind of moved it to Alaska, where all my books for Love Inspired take place. (What? I can do that. I'm in charge of that fictitious town! And there are totally wolves in Alaska.)


Wolves are incredible creatures. They're often misunderstood, which is why they're currently listed on the endangered species list. I was honored to write about such beautiful animals and incorporate their story into my hero and heroine's romance in ALASKAN SANCTUARY.

Here's a bit about the book:



Piper Quinn is fighting for the future of her wolf sanctuary. A painful childhood has taught her to be more comfortable with animals than humans—especially the beautiful wolves of Aurora, Alaska. So when reporter Ethan Hale arrives to cover her struggling shelter—and deems the wolves a danger to the community—she's ready to prove him wrong. A former park ranger, Ethan's seen just enough tragedy to support his claim. Soon their difference of opinion is front-page news. And Piper and Ethan must reconcile their opposing views with their stubborn hearts that are quickly finding refuge in each other.



ALASKAN SANCTUARY is available on Amazon, at Harlequin and lots of other places. Visit my website for more info.



OH! And one more bit of exciting news!! My book UNLEASHING MR. DARCY is now a Hallmark Channel Original Movie and will premiere on January 23 at 9 eastern/8 central on the Hallmark Channel. I couldn't be more excited about this movie. It's very much in keeping with the spirit of my book, and the whole experience has been a dream come true. Check out the trailer below and set your DVR's!

Aw, I missed your post.

I usually read the suspense line, but I read your book because I've always been fascinated by wolves so I had to read it. Alaskan Sanctuary is a wonderful book. And because of you, I WILL go to that wolf sanctuary someday. Maybe one day I'll think of a suspense idea that incorporate wolves. If I do, know that it'll be a nod to you.

I have my calendar literally marked for Jan 23 Unleashing Mr. Darcy. Funny, I told my sister about your movie and spoke of you as if we knew each other. LOL

Revel in the joy. I'm happy for you.

Anne,

Wow, thank you so much for such a wonderfully nice comment! I'm so glad you liked the book. And YES, you must go to the wolf sanctuary! It's such an amazing place. I really want to go back there sometime in the winter when there's snow on the ground. The wolves are supposed to be really playful when it's cold outside.
