Little Red Riding Wolf

Hey everyone, let’s give a warm welcome to paranormal author, Jessica Aspen. Tomorrow is the big release day for her latest novella, Little Red Riding Wolf. I’m honored that you chose to spend today here at Fox Tales. Let’s get to the details.
  1. Have you always written, or wanted to be a writer, or is it something you’ve done after having another career?
Thanks for having me on as your guest, Sutton, I’m excited to be here today. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but like a lot of writers I was told that it wasn’t realistic. So for most of my life I dabbled when I wrote, didn’t finish anything, pretty much treating it the way one does when you are doing other things as a career. Meanwhile I went to college and emerged with an elementary education degree that I really never used. I just didn’t want to be a teacher. Instead I spent time with my kids and played at part time jobs till finally I decided; it just doesn’t matter if this is a career or not, I want to write. Now I’m thrilled to have Little Red Riding Wolf coming out and guess what, it turns out you can have this as a career!

  1. You write paranormal stories. Have you always been drawn to life on the dark side, or did you start out with another genre?
Well, I still started off dark. My very first romance I wrote seriously was a romantic suspense, complete with a stalker. Maybe I’ll pick that up again someday, but I think what I really will end up doing is combining the supernatural element of paranormal and the mystery element of suspense. This series of novellas isn’t suspense, but I am working on a full length novel that combines both elements, we’ll call it supernatural suspense.

  1. I see from your website that you live in Colorado. That’s where I grew up, and some days I miss it. The scenery is just stunning. What’s your favorite thing about living there?
I didn’t know you grew up here. It is lovely and I think if I move anywhere else I would miss it too. I love the scenery and I love hiking and spending time in the mountains. They provide a sense of serenity it’s difficult to find elsewhere, except maybe the ocean. So I might be talked into trading the mountains for the beach, but not any time soon.

  1. We don’t want to wait any longer. Please tell us about your new release!
Little Red Riding Wolf is an e-novella from Passion in Print Press. It’s my first, but I plan a few more so watch out! Here is the blurb:
Fraternizing with humans is taboo, but when feisty werewolf Red runs into hunky new forest ranger Evan Brewster, she jumps on the opportunity to let loose her desires. Evan is stoked when he meets the petite red haired hottie, and combined with his new discovery of wolves in Colorado, thinks his career and life are made. Then Red pushes him away, her hostile brother threatens his life, and things begin to spiral out of control. Caught between her sexy lover and her pack can Red trust Evan with her secrets, or must she sacrifice her human lover and her heart?
  1. What’s up next for Jessica Aspen?
I’m having fun working on the sequel to Little Red about Red’s brother Seth. In Little Red Riding Wolf Seth is angry and hates humans, so of course he has to have his comeuppance in the sequel. And of course it also is a twisted fairy tale, this time with elements from Snow White.
