You are under no obligation to read the bio! Yes, I turned in the final draft of the second book, WINTER OF THE GODS, last month! It will still have some editing to go, but it should be out by next February at the latest. I'm already brainstorming Book Three! At this point, it will be a trilogy, but hey, you never know. And yes, many of the same characters are back, although there are definitely some new additions. As you can imagine, there are always more gods and goddesses to explore!(less)

No matter what, it's going to be problematic. My preference would've been to use no pronouns at all and avoid the issue in the blurb, but the English language just made that too hard. I don't want to use "they" in the blurb, as it makes the blurb all about gender pronouns, which isn't what I wanted to focus on. It also implies a modern conception of trans or NB to readers, which isn't accurate for this book (although there are certainly some parallels, as you noted). Using "he" in the blurb would imply a gay romance, which feels misleading to potential readers. In Inuktitut, there are no gendered pronouns, so using them at all in the book is something forced upon us by our language. If Omat were born today, I believe we would think of her as a woman who simply refuses to accept her society's traditionally imposed gender roles, not as someone who considers herself actually male. In traditional Inuit culture, the baby is given an ancestor's name at birth, so male gender is something assigned by others, not something organically understood by Omat. Hence, I settled on the very imperfect choice of "she." That is not to say I made the right decision, only to give you some understanding of my thinking. (less)

“I am no longer scared of being a woman — it doesn’t make me any less a man. I am both. I am neither. I am only myself.”
Jordanna Max Brodsky, The Wolf in the Whale

“Life attracts life.”
Jordanna Max Brodsky, The Wolf in the Whale

“There is a very old story, rarely told, of a wolf that runs into the ocean and becomes a whale. It is said that the two animals share a spirit.
I'd been sent a vision, though I didn't know by whom. Sila, perhaps. Or Singarti. Maybe even Ataata. I couldn't speak to them, couldn't summon them- but I could watch. I could listen. And I thought I understood their message.
The wolf is not bound to its shape. I can change form at will, transforming to a whale when it must swim in the sea.
Seeing the whale, no one would ever suspect it had once been a wolf.”
Jordanna Max Brodsky, The Wolf in the Whale
