You all might remember a while back, MaryLynn Bast spent a week with us as part of her No Remorse blog tour. Please welcome her back as she share a bit about the development of her Heart of the Wolf Series! But first, a little about No Remorse.
Due to her unusual birth, Amber has abilities no other werewolf has ever possessed. On the run since childhood, the lone wolf avoids contact with other werewolves at all cost, continually moving, constantly looking over her shoulder and always alone.
Everything changes when Amber saves a werewolf from the mere brink of death, Blake, the only werewolf to ever protect her. Love blossoms, but not without tribulations when Amber realizes she must help her new pack rescue a member who is being held hostage by a rival pack.
Warring with emotions of going from lone wolf to the pack leader’s mate, Amber must decide if she is willing to risk Blake’s life to know true family and friendship despite the fact that the Council is hell bent on locating her and will stop at nothing until she is found. Will Amber’s special abilities be enough to keep everyone safe?

As an avid reader, I always wondered what if the author had done this with the story instead of what they had done. How did the author come up with the strange names that always appeared in the fantasy and sci-fi books, movies and shows? How did they come up with their own little world? When I first began writing, I wondered how the heck I was going to be able to create my own little world. I sat down and began writing No Remorse without any sense of direction, other than this is going to be about a female werewolf. My little world appeared as I brought my character through her struggles of being a lone, female wolf on the run. Recently, I went to a writing class given by Maxwell Alexander Drake, award winning author for his Genesis Oblivion Saga. After sitting through his class, I realized, I had, for the most part already created my own world with my Heart of a Wolf Series. I just went about it in a different way than Drake sets up his worlds. He did give some really good pointers that I will try to apply to the stories as I move further into the Series. I am sure once my characters grow, my stories and my abilities as an author will grow as well.
No Remorse is the first novel in the Heart of a Wolf Series. It is also the first of my stories to be published and I am extremely excited about it. I have written all my life, but this is the first time that I have taken a character to the point of competing a story. The universe I am creating for my werewolves parallel the human world where the paranormal really exists.
When I first wrote No Remorse I had no intention of setting up the universe that seemed to grow the further I got into the story. I was going to publish the book, print my own copy and be happy with that. Once I started letting friends and family read the story, they encouraged me to publish it for real. I’m glad I did and hope you all enjoy Amber’s story as she struggles through life without friends or loved ones while evading capture by the werewolves’ council leader. When Amber does become part of a pack, she wars with her emotions of going from a lone wolf to a pack mate. She must decide if the special abilities she was born with, and she is still learning to use, will be enough for her to protect Blake and his pack.
