Tamyra Costa flees the complications of big city life and becomes the new girl in mysterious Shiver Cove. She’s a painfully shy girl starting her senior year and is terrified of being left an outsider. Luckily, one of the popular boys has taken notice of her. Too bad his interest also draws a bully’s attention. Unfortunately, dealing with bullies isn’t the worst thing Tamyra will have to face in her new home.
Tamyra has a secret she’s desperate to protect. Her family genetics are of a long line of werewolves and her wolf form is emerging.
Something stalks the streets of Shiver Cove. Could her deepest fears be coming true? Could her werewolf side be killing or has something far more sinister than Tamyra can imagine made Shiver Cove its home?
Targeted Age Group:: teens, young adult
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a teenager I was very loud and outspoken. However, I still managed to attract the attention of bullies on occasion. I really wanted to go back and explore what the bullying could have been like had I been a shy person. And the werewolf part… well, that’s just good fun!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Tamyra’s is the shy person I never was. I sat down and wrote out her description along with a Q & A sheet I made up for her. I asked such questions as:
What’s the wost thing that’s ever happened to her?
What’s her favourite ice-cream?
How would she handle (*insert awkward situation here) this?
Once I get going with the answers to imaginary questions a character really starts to flesh out for me and becomes real.
