Jemi Fraser Blog Tour - Bloo Moose Romances


Today I'm delighted to welcome Jemi Fraser to talk about her Bloo Moose Romance series!

***

Thanks so much for having my on your blog today, Shannon!

When I was a kid, I read Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat. What a book! The story follows Mowat’s real-life experience in Canada’s north. He was hired by the government to find out why the wolves were indiscriminately slaughtering caribou. Of course, he found no such thing. The book is a fascinating account of Mowat’s year long study of the often-maligned wolves. They’ve also made a movie based on his book/experience.

In the book, we see the powerful prejudices people had against wolves and the assumptions made from rumours and non-scientific information. (Sadly we still see too many parallels in today’s world.)

One of the characters in Reaching For Normal is a former SEAL who is now helping track wolves for the people reintegrating the animals into Vermont.

Myla is an adventure writer who is experiencing winter for the first time. When they hear wolves howling, Myla is terrified and Sawyer is excited.

The crazy man was enthralled by wolf howls. How was she supposed to save a nutcase?

But, Myla is willing to learn…

“I was getting my information from Little Red and her pig buddies.”

The wolf aspect is out on the periphery of the story, but it’s an integral part to the growth of both characters.

How about you? Any other Mowat fans? Anyone interested in wolves?

I love that you brought up Never Cry Wolf! I've never read the book, but I'd like to. It was a movie I used to watch with my dad, and I have such fond memories of it. I wish you much good luck with your launch!

May you find your Muse.

  1. That's a great element to include in your book. Never read Never Cry Wolf but I did see the movie. Wolves get such a bad rap.
