Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Motherof Wolves was inspired by the long history of the persecution of thegypsies in mainland Europe and by a crude folk painting in a Czechcastle in particular. The painting depicted a woman whose ear hadbeen cut off and behind her a hanged man. This made me wonder: whatif the gypsies had had a leader who could have united them to fight?And what if that leader was a woman? I have always been fascinated bythose women leaders in history, who despite all the prejudice againstour sex, rise to the top.


Asfor the inspiration of the book's title: at its simplest Lupaadopts two wolf-cubs whose mother has been killed by hunters. In the book Lupa's peoplebelieve that each person has a spirit animal and Lupa's is ofcourse the she-wolf. Of course the title is also symbolic. As a leader and mother to her people Lupa transforms them from being hunted to being the hunters - "her wolves".


Thebook is a historical fantasy/alternate history. It is set in an unnamed country at anunspecified time. But the countryside described in the book is basedon the riverscape of the River Severn in England and so I did a lotof research into the history and customs of the area and the naturalhistory of the river. Of course I researched the history and cultureof the gypsies in depth, but I also included elements of othertravelling cultures, most notably the travelling native peoples ofNorth America.

Although this is a fantasy, there is not a lot of magic in the book: Lupa survives on her wits. Such magic as there is is based on the humans' relationship with animals - Lupa with her spirit animal the wolf and the wisewoman with her fox familiar.

Lupa will appear briefly in Company of Shadows the third book of The Healer's Shadow Trilogy which is out this autumn.
