Tell us about the place where you wrote your story: “Egyptian Holiday” is a prequel to The Shapeshifters’ Library series. Egypt is where the journey started and Cleopatra’s librarian sister had this story to tell. Perhaps living in the desert near the red rocks makes me feel close to the Pyramids.

“Swapping drool with werewolves is not statesmanship.”
