AAD Author Spotlight: Teresa D’Amario

Author Spotlight2

Please join me in welcoming author Teresa D’Amario here today as part of my Authors After Dark Spotlight series.

wolfWEBOnce the victim of scientific experimentation by the Government Control of Supernatural Activities (GSA), Damon doesn't have a past, and he isn't sure he has a future. He doesn't even know if his ability to change from human to wolf is a virus, or magick. But the instant he lays eyes on the pretty cop from the local police force, he knows he has to learn the secrets of his past before they destroy her future.

Krystal is the best animal cop on the police force, hiding magickal talent beneath layers of excuses and quick thinking.  For five years she's tracked Peter Burke, a butcher who steals any form of canine to supplement his dietary needs.  The day she saves a wolf from losing his head at the sharp end of an axe, her entire life changes.  And then there is Damon, the mysterious, sexy ex-soldier with no memory of his past who awakens fantasies of dark and sensual nights.

But the GSA isn't finished with Damon, and when the shadowy government agency joins forces with Burke, Krystal too finds her life in jeopardy, the target of men and women led by their own desires. Damon and Krystal must work together to stop evil and destroy years of illegal research. But can their budding love survive when experiments distort Damon's shifting skills, creating a monster?

Thanks Karen for letting me visit your blog today!  You're an awesome hostess, and I'm honored to be here.

One of the most exciting things in my life right now is preparing for the Authors After Dark conference, so when Karen asked me to blog here, For What it's worth, I was thrilled.  I love the title of Karen's site, isn't it awesome?  I'm notorious for saying "For what it's worth" before I give an absolutely useless opinion, so let me dive in and tell you about my next book, which, for what it's worth, I think is an awesome, and terrifying tale of danger, government conspiracies, and magick.

Krystal and Damon are two of my favorite characters of all time.  She's a butt kicking chick who acts first and thinks second, which gets them in all kinds of trouble.  He's a shifter who doesnt' have much in the way of memory, and isn't quite sure if he was born or infected with some werewolf virus.  And it gets a bit sticky when he becomes overwhelmed with the desire to bite Krystal.  That can't be normal, can it?

What I like about this book is I got to add my love of animals in with this.  Now you all know my shifter books have a lot of true animal behaviors and quirks, but this time there are actually dogs there.  This book was about blending my true loves in life - working with animals and writing.  As for my 3rd love (actually first, but he's brought up third), he thinks I'm absolutely insane for writing about werewolves.  So what do you think?  Am I a little bit insane maybe?  It's okay, you can tell me.

Karen: Sounds like a fun series.Thank you for stopping by Teresa & I'll see in NOLA!

  2. Hey Wendy! Thanks so much. You'll have to check them out. This one is especially fun cuz he doesn't know if he was "made" or "Born that way". Makes for some really fun confusion in our hero. :D Like when he finds out where he lives and he doesnt' really want the heroine to go inside but can't stop her, just in case there's something about him going furry hidden in the apartment. :D

  3. "So what do you think? Am I a little bit insane maybe? It's okay, you can tell me."

  4. JayRay! Wow, I haven't seen you in a long while. Thanks for stopping by! I'll drop by cuz I have a big question on our "other" love. :D And noooo, don't you dare answer those questions and share all my secrets. After all, you know my family history. LOL. You'll have to check out my books and tell me what you think!
