I've been married for over forty years to a terrific man who puts up with the idiosyncrasies of life with an author. We raised two really great kids who are now wonderful adults who've produced six grandchildren for us. ALL perfect, of course!
I've concluded my long-running Kensington Aphrodisia erotic paranormal romance series, Wolf Tales (which includes the Sexy Beast anthologies I-VIII) and the erotic Dream Catchers series, as well as The DemonSlayers series from Kensington Zebra. The latest Chanku series, which began under the Aphrodisia imprint, is called Spirit Wild. It picks up on the lives of the second generation of Chanku shapeshifters, beginning with Lily Cheval's story in DARK WOLF.
Kensington chose not to continue with the stories, so I am publishing the stories independently with Beyond The Page Publishing, an assisted self-publishing company. My first book, Dark Spirit, released in early January 2014. The final Kensington title, Dark Moon, released January 28, and my latest indie offering, Dark Refuge, released May 12, 2014. I fully intend to write more of the stories--keep up with my progress via my website updates page at http://www.katedouglas.com/updates--projects.html
I've signed with St. Martin's Press to write a sexy contemporary romance series with just a bit of suspense. The first of these stories--the novella TANGLED in the HOT ALPHAS anthology with Lora Leigh, released in May 2015. The first two novels are INTIMATE, scheduled for a December 1, 2015 release, and REDEMPTION, coming out December 29. The third book, AWAKENED, should be out in summer 2016.
I am also writing an erotic paranormal werewolf series of shorter category length books for SMP. That series, FERAL PASSIONS, is set around the Feral Passions Resort, built and managed by a group of male werewolves trying to find mates. It's hard to choose a woman out there in the real world, so they sort of import them as guests of the resort. This one does have some humor, but there are also serious undertones dealing with self-esteem and exactly what makes a woman feel beautiful. The first story released in September 2015 in the CLAIMED BY THE MATE duet with AC Arthur. It will be out in print January 6, 2016, in an anthology called GROWL, with AC Arthur and Eve Langlais.
