However, I'm still writing spin-off short fiction and novellas about some of the other characters, primarily Rick and Cormac, so keep an eye out for those. Thanks for reading!(less)

“I'm a werewolf trapped in a human body."
"Well, yeah, that's kind of the definition."
"No, really. I'm trapped."
"Oh? When was the last time you shape-shifted?"
"That's just it - I've never shape-shifted."
"So you're not really a werewolf."
"Not yet. But I was meant to be one, I just know it. How do I get a werewolf to attack me?"

“What the hell kind of name is Kitty for a werewolf?”

“Hey, Cormac. You ever have to deal with a PMSing werewolf?”
