1. Did you put parts of yourself or people you know into your characters?
I did grow up around a very large forest, but, unlike Avery, I didn't spend a lot of time in it. And Avery is way, way more interesting than I ever could be!
2. In what ways were you inspired by Little Red Riding Hood?
If I tell you that, it would spoil the book! But let's just say all the elements are there. Just different :-)
3. If you could pair Avery and Ben with any other characters (book or movie) who would you choose and why?
I have no idea! Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd love to read/see them! (Hmmm.. it's a hard choice, but I'd say maybe Damien from The Rise of Renegade X for Avery... she needs his protection and they're also both really nice people. For Ben... maybe Evie from Paranormalcy. She's understanding of werewolves and a kick butt heroine)
4. The paranormal/werewolf genre is really taking off and Low Red Moon definitely stands out as being unique, did you do any research on werewolves before writing?
I didn't do any research on werewolves, but I did some research on wolves. Ben's last name, for example--there's a reason why it is what it is!
