Shapeshifter Bios, Cowboy Poetry and the Celtic Serpent

Pic from ~ ~

Saturday into Sunday purrs, my most adored holiday-adorable Felines... blustery, sweeping cold winds over the tame prairie today... the kind of cold that cuts to the bone... late this afternoon, moi heard the hunting yips and barks of a coyote pack... they sounded like they were in the far end of western pasture... eerie, chilling, yet fascinating... and predators are so necessary for a healthy eco balance.

Shapeshifter Bios, Cowboy Poetry and the Celtic Serpent ~ What a wacky, intense, all-over-the-map author day... first working on White Fang Kent, Dante and Pasha’s shapeshifter bio blurbs [see below for an example]... while listening to a radio show about the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada... yeeee-hawww! Did this Big Cat writer ever get lots of dang good stuff for her next Three Star Republic of Texas book... did you know that stamped saddles last longer than smooth-leather saddles? ...oooh, yes, the Kougaress love those singing, hard-riding cowboys! ...and then, while working on the next chapter of Kandy and Her Hellhounds, moi needed to check out the Celtic symbol: the serpent swallowing its own tail... so, searching the internet, she discovered a small bonanza of info that could be used in several of her other stories and her on-going Flash stories... like the New Bull in Town... a stag shifter story...and, because Seneca, the heroine in STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME, is a descendant of the goddess, Epona... the Celtic horse symbol info was useful, just in case the Kougar gets to continue Seneca and Trail’s love story.

The tail-switching holiday moment: Creating the bio blurbs for the Kougar’s characters in the ongoing story of the Guts and Butts Gazette. Yes, it was that tingly fun. Here’s one of them.

White Fang Kent, Ace Crime Reporter

The Super Wolf, who keeps his identity a well-guarded secret, has arrived in Talbot’s Peak, Montana on a mission. The hideaway town has been taken over by a werewolf pack. Their out-of-the-den bravado endangers not only their lives, but the entire shapeshifter world on Earth. Determined to keep his own wolfkind safe and undiscovered, White Fang realizes he must stay to protect the town’s residents from the ruthless enemies they are clueless about. However, he soon discovers he’s stepped into a real life version of As the Werewolf World Turns.

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

Snow Aint The only Thing That's Deep In Alaska
by Solara

“Hello. Will I what? Collect call from who?” Lamar’s sleepy voice grated Danny’s already frazzled nerves two strings short of fried.

“Come on Lamar, take my call.” His muffled plea echoed over intermittent static filled connection.

“Danny, I’ll take the call, but you owe me.” Lamar’s exasperated tone and word emphasis sent shivers down Danny’s back.

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~ from the Flash Cat...

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 706 ~

Sylva shoved down her fluttery apprehension, opening the door. Zeke’s mother gazed at her with concern, a small smile hovering on her lips. “Sylva, honey, why don’t you come on downstairs. We’ll have some tea by the hearth, and chat. The men are just fine. Your Zeke is chasin’... well, let me explain downstairs.” In a quandary about whether to try sleeping and psi-look for Zeke, or... “Okay, let me change.” Sylva began to turn away. “No, you’re just fine. You’re covered. That’s all that matters, dear.” Yielding, Sylva stepped beyond the door, then closed it. “You said Zeke is okay?”

Zeke jumped aboard the Speeder while Van leaped into the pilot’s chair. In moments, they were airborne and jetting after the small robo plane. Zeke scanned the sky periodically glancing at the activated screen that showed the miniature aircraft’s flight path. “Disturbin’ that giant robo mosquito made it through our defenses,” Van drawled, as he expertly increased their speed. “Yep, Dad will make damn certain that don’t occur again.” Zeke eagle-eyed the far distance. “Settin’ the beam. Almost able to get a lock,” Van reported. “Hold off on the lock. Could scare the sidewinders away. Or give ‘em a target.”

Wowsa, sounds like you had a busy, but awesome reseach/writing day! I love when that happens!

Oh, I need to get my characters written as well. I need to slow time...for just a little bit. ;)

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, oh-so busy and today was close... I swear my head was spinning like no tomorrow.

Hey, I started writing a bio on Kitty Kewtie aka Katrina Collins... have you got one started on her yet? Since she was your character.

Serena Shay said...

Nope, I have nothing for Kitty Kewtie other than she was a fed up reader of the new G&B Gazette. If you have more background on her, go right ahead and add her to your list. :)

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, thanks. Will do. ~this whole project could be like herding cats, but it's fun~

Serena Shay said...

Lol...good comparison. ;)
