Dean Weir has finally found happiness in his position as Omega wolf of the Cloverleah pack. He has his friends, his work and his art and he has never looked for anything else. Badly abused by his ex-home pack and Alpha, Dean keeps his head down and stays out of trouble. That is, until his mate joins the pack.
Matthew Charmichael is over a hundred years old and has been a lone wolf for longer than he can remember. Joining the Cloverleah pack after he heard they were having trouble with another wolf shifter, Matthew is overjoyed to find his mate is the cute little Omega of the small pack. But Dean's past, and the constant attacks on the pack from the mysterious Kylan, could mean that Matthew and Dean won't get their HEA after all. Can Dean overcome his past, and embrace the powers that a claimed Omega is purported to have, or will his ex-pack kill him before he and Matthew have a chance.
Warning: This is a love story between two male wolf shifters. It includes graphic depictions of sex between men as well as some violence and coarse language. Historical abuse themes are referred to, but not described.

1. What is the best part about writing paranormal?
There are a couple of reasons why I prefer to write paranormal books. The first thing is that I get to make the rules, lol. Yes, it's a bit of a power trip. But honestly, I have always loved the true mate trope and all of my books are based on it. The other thing that I have explored in a number of my books is the strength that comes from natural things, or nature I suppose. An underlying theme in a lot of my books is the fact that while an individual might be physically strong, it is the inner strength, that comes from fighting adversity, that is the most important element in a person's life. That is really evident in Getting Close to the Omega, where Dean is by far the smallest person in the pack. Yet in terms of heart and inner courage he is definitely one of the strongest.
2. How did you get started with writing?
I started writing non-fiction years ago because it was something that I really enjoyed, and as a family we needed the money. Writing was a safe and reliable way of making money online and as we lived in a rural township, and I needed to be home for my children, it worked out really well for me. It wasn't until my kids had grown and left home that I tried my hand at writing fiction, and I am so glad I did. I love my characters and the concept of an HEA for all of them and I can see a lot of new books in my future.
3. How do you deal with reviews, good and bad?
Like many writers I find it devastating when I get a bad review. The first time it happened I couldn't write for two days - I felt like I was a hack and a fraud. But my mum had raised me to have manners, and I responded to the review, thanking them for their time and their comments. After all, some of the things that were said were valid points and I could learn from them. Over the past eleven books I have had heaps more positive feedback than negative and I a truly thankful for that. If someone has something constructive to say about the way I write, or what have you, then I definitely take those comments on board and try and do better next time. But the positive love and support I get from so many of my readers is what keeps me going on those blue days when nothing in the story seems to be right - and that does happen.
4. What are some of your inspiration books?
I love books in my genre and it is more authors that are inspirational to me, than books. Stormy Glenn for example, or Charlie Richards - they both write about shifters and yet they can do it with an economy of words I have yet to learn. I am also a staunch fan of Sean Michaels, Marcy Jacks, Gabrielle Evans, actually the list is quite long. But these writers not only inspire me because of how and what they write, but also because they write so much. I want to be like them and that is where I get my inspiration from (as a writer - the story ideas are all my own).
5. What are you working on next?
Fae For All, which is book six in the Cloverleah Pack, will be out hopefully by April tenth. I am also working on the fifth book in the Bound and Bonded Series (No Mate of Mine) and book two of the Stockton Wolves series (Copping a Lot of Sin). I am hoping both of those books will be out in May. As if that wasn't enough, I also have a new idea for my Alpha and Omega series so I want to find the time to write that one as well, before the characters in my head drive me crazy.
“You matter to me,” Matthew said. “One day you will share your personal horrors with me, purely and simply because eventually we won’t have any secrets from each other. You will trust that I am strong enough to handle it, and that I will comfort you when you need me to. Those things come with time.” Matthew lifted his arms, encouraging Dean’s hands to come back up to his shoulders. As though he couldn’t get enough, Dean went back to tracing Matthew’s collar bone.
Matthew swallowed a moan and forced himself to keep speaking. “But right now, in this moment, I need you to know, that to me, any scars you have are a testament to your strength and ability to survive. And you have no idea how thankful I am that you did survive and that you feel comfortable enough with me to sit here and touch me like this.”
“You make me calm, like I have found my center,” Dean explained. “I don’t know why, but when I’m around you I don’t have any fear, of anything.” He looked up and Matthew was blasted by the pure need in Dean’s eyes. “Could you, would you mind maybe kissing me again, please?”
“As often as you like,” Matthew promised as he leaned over and carefully brushed his lips over Dean’s mouth.
