Interview time! This time I’m interviewing Jami Gray, author of “Shadow’s Moon”, a paranormal romance / UF novel. You can also win print copies of all three books in the series (US/CA only) or eBook copies of all three books in the series (international).
Well, if you’ve read my bio, you know I come from a HUGE family. It’s not a joke, promise. It’s very real. Here’s the fun part—I am the least social person you’ll probably ever meet. No, really. In real life, where people come up and hold actual conversations, I have to rely on my Knight in Slightly Muddy Armor for support. I’m pretty shy until the ice gets broken. Then, woo baby, I’m right in there. I have two boys because someone up there knows I’d never survive raising girls. I have nothing but admiration for those who have accepted that challenge. My Prankster Duo are two of the greatest things I’ve ever done, well, next to marrying my best friend. So yes, I’m very outnumbered in my home, but they’ll tell you it feels the other way around.
I sport a type-A personality, even managed to get a Master’s in Organizational Management. Yep, it’s a real degree. It’s the one behind the individual who comes into a company, looks at it and says, “You know, guys, you’re going about this all wrong. Here’s what you need to do…” However, no matter how much in order the rest of my life must be, I do not outline, I detest outlines. Maybe because they remind me of all my college research papers and Journalism assignments. All that structure just sucks my creativity down into a deep, dark hole. However, I do have very detailed character sketches, down to what their homes look like, what their quirks are, fav foods, you name it, I have it written down. Plus I have to know my major plot points, and I think that’s my saving grace when I write.
5) If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

Even a wild heart can be broken…
A blonde, a brunette and a monster walk into a bar and all hell breaks loose.
It should have been the start of a bad joke, but days from a full moon Xander Cade, Tracker for the Northwest Motoki Pack, finds nothing funny about confronting an enraged Shifter in a crowded Portland nightclub filled with unsuspecting humans. The resulting carnage frays an already thin veil of secrecy shielding the supernatural Kyn community from public scrutiny, and ensures she can’t escape the one man she’s been determined to avoid, her Alpha and mate, Warrick Vidis. Dominating, protective and compelling, Warrick threatens her individuality like no other.
As the Northwest Alpha wolf, compromise isn’t in Warrick Vidis’s vocabulary, but when his reluctant mate, Xander Cade, refuses to leave off the hunt for a killer, he has no qualms using whoever or whatever necessary to protect her or his pack. A series of unusual deaths involving lone wolves, along with anonymous threats against him and his Pack, begin to jeopardize his normal steely control. Add in Xander’s continual reluctance to fully accept their Soul bond, and the line between intellect and instinct begins to blur, leaving him wondering if one woman’s love and acceptance will be enough to save both man and wolf.
As the danger escalates, threatening not just their Pack but those closest to them, Warrick and Xander must find a way to trust each other and accept their rare bond or risk losing everything-their pack, their friends and each other.
Jami Gray grew up on the Arizona-Mexico border, and was adopted at the age of 14 to suddenly become the fifth eldest of 37 children. She graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s in Journalism and three minors-History, English, and Theater. (Decision-making was not her forte at the time.) Shortly after marrying her techie-geek hubby (who moonlighted as her best friend in high school) she completed a Masters in Organizational Management from University of Phoenix Oregon.
Now, years later, she’s back in the Southwest where she’s outnumbered in her own home by two Star Wars obsessed boys, one Star Wars obsessed husband, and an overly-friendly, 105-pound male lab. Delving into the wild paranormal worlds where romance collides with suspense and Urban Fantasy is queen, manages to salvage her sanity. Or so we let her believe…
