Announcing Hug Your Local Werewolf!

Do you like werewolves? Found families? Queer shenanigans? Do I have the serial fiction for YOU.

Eli Swann flies so far under the radar, he’s eating dirt. He’s been called a lot of things. 



Hey new kid, what’s your name again? 

All that changes when he’s attacked by a monster in the woods on Halloween night. 

Suddenly werewolves are real and he’s got a raging case of pack instincts. Throw in an unlikely accord with two sisters from a neighboring pack and no idea how he’s going to make it through the next full moon, and Eli’s got more than enough to deal with. 

So, of course, the captain of the baseball team might also be trying to kill him. This would sting less if Eli hadn’t had a crush on the guy since arriving in town. 

Eli’s simple existence just grew teeth—he might be the only thing holding back a supernatural menace, and he still has to pass Bio. 

Life is hard for Rose Lake’s local werewolf. 

Hug Your Local Werewolf is a serialized hopepunk urban fantasy story about a newly-bitten werewolf learning to navigate love, the supernatural, and his biology homework—and hopefully survive all three.

It’s co-written by Mel B (author of Far Fetched) and Stacey Lehane (author of The Princess Lottery). Hug Your Local Werewolf is our first combined original undertaking and we’re not taking prisoners.

Y’all, I’m STOKED to be finally announcing this project. Mel and I have been slaving over it for months now and this announcement is the first step to getting eyeballs on our writing proper. You can look forward to the first part of episode one hitting your faces within the month.

In the meantime:
