Welcome to the group! The thought occurred to me that you all might need a place to ask me questions since the other threads are specific to other authors. Leave any comments or questions you might have that are specific to me in this thread only.

You're welcome and it's hard to explain the thought process. I brainstorm a lot before starting a project and then just see where the characters take me.

Kelsey was raised Christian but not really practicing. Ren and Kishan were raised with a couple of different religions since their father was Indian and their mother Tibetan. Their parents encouraged them to find their own path.

It's still in the screenwriting phase.

If I could be anyone I think it would be easiest to be Nilima. I think I'm most like her. Her and Jennifer anyway. Kelsey gets into too many dangerous situations for my comfort but kissing Ren and Kishan would be a nice benefit.

Prissy | 1 comments Hey Mrs. Houck. Thank you so much for the invite!!!! I was wondering if there was a release date for Tigers Dream yet....

Zoey  | 1 comments Hello Ms. Houck! I just want to say that you are my favorite author, and it is amazing to be part of this group. Do you plan on releasing any Tiger's Curse merchandise? I think it would be wonderful like stuffed white tiger with blue eyes and Kelsey's bracelet.

message 25: by Sabrina (new)

Sabrina (forebodinq) Hi!
I can't wait to read Tiger's Promise :)
My question is: Are Yesubai and Kelsey similar in many ways? Do you think they would have been friends, if they were in the same time?

Jodi | 5 comments Hi Christine :)

Adithi (adithir) | 1 comments Hi Mrs. Houck! I read your Tiger's Curse series and I wanted to ask you a question :)

What are you hoping to accomplish in Tiger's Dream? Will you provide us with more insight on Kishan's life and where he finds happiness? What, in your opinion, do you want to do most in this last book?

I really enjoyed your books and I am excited for the release of your next one! Thank you for writing! :)

message 29: by Alison (new)

Alison | 1 comments Hello Colleen,
I'm from Taiwan and I love your books. This is absolutely one of the best books I've ever read. Thanks for writing such an wonderful series. I'm really excited to know what will happen in Tiger's Dream. I know that Yesubai will be in this book, but what about Kelsey? Because they don't live at the same time, do they? Or will there be more time traveling? Also, will there be a movie basing on this series?

I'm kind of interested in writing, but sometimes I feel like all my imagination has been drained out and don't know what to write. Can you give some advices for a young writer like me?

Thanks, and I love you, Colleen!!!

The movie is in the works. Nothing new to report there. June 1st is the pub date of the novella Tiger's Promise. Fall 2015 is my next book, the untitled Egypt book one.

That would be cool. Merch usually goes with the movie contract.

Tiger's Dream is top secret. Not everything has been resolved yet despite appearances. ;)

Hard to say. I think they may be too different to get along. I think Yesubai would have been more drawn to Nilima.

Thank you. Yesubai only makes an appearance in Tiger's Promise. Kelsey will be in Tiger's Dream. As for advice the best thing I can tell you is to read, read, read and if writing is something you want to do. Never give up on that.

I've had a title in mind all along but the publisher has a different idea. We're going back and forth until we settle on something we both like.


message 45: by Aya (new)

Aya Zeabi | 1 comments Okay Mrs. Houck. I'm am soo confused. Let me start out by telling you that I cried my heart out when I finished the last book of the tigers series. I love books that make me emotional. You are a very talented writer. But I have a couple of questions:
1.) Is there going to be another book to the series. If so whats the name of it and when does it come out?
And 2.) Is there really going to be a movie for these series or is that just a rumor?

Thank you so much!!! Your one of my favorite authors! I wish you the best and thanks again!
Aya Zeabi


message 46: by Marta (new)

Marta | 1 comments Hey Mrs. Houck!
A thought occurred to me as I scrolled through this thread, when you wrote Tiger's Destiny, did you cry? I mean, to kill of your characters and seperate families(or banish them to the past), I feel like that would be like cutting of your right hand! Those characters are as real to me as my family and I feel they would be more so to you. I don't even want to know what gave you the idea to flip everything upside down like you did, but I sobbed for days! Did you cry as you wrote it? Sniffle as you handed it to your publisher and did your eyes water when you saw it on the shelves? I haven't been able to touch the fourth book, it is in a permanent time-out, seperated from the other books on my shrine.
Thanks for your time, (I know you're busy writing magic and tears and keeping us in suspense)
Marta R.


message 47: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra | 1 comments Hi colleen, I love your books and will have every one of them as soon as they come out. I enjoy the quotes you post on face book for the book. I was wondering if you would ever put those in as side books or will you just keep them online. I also just wanted to let you know your Egyptian book looks interesting and I can't wait for that as well.


message 48: by Julianna (new)

Julianna Okay, so I thought of another question re-reading the series! Warning, SPOILERS AHEAD for those who haven't read Tiger's Destiny! At the end of Tiger's Destiny, it's decided that Kishan will be Durga's tiger, Damon. However, as I read Tiger's Curse the other day, Damon is described as an orange and black tiger. I thought Kishan was simply just black.


message 49: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra | 1 comments My question is about the movies screenplay. I know it's still in the writing process but I was wondering if you have seen any of the progress or will you be overseeing any of it? I understand most authors don't get asked to participate in the movie and some probably rather it stay that way but more recently I've seen authors work with the screenplay e.g Collins, Clare, and Roth.
I would feel better knowing you will be a part of it.
