I am a Cherokee costume/jewelry designer and writer. I love children and animals, traveling, and a really good thunderstorm. I enjoy story-telling and crafting. And I especially love the guilty pleasure of listening to a good book while working!

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

    What made the experience of listening to Alpha and Omega the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy anything Patricia Briggs writes, but this novella was especially helpful because of its background stories. It not only explains the differences that someone that is an Omega brings to the plate, but it also gives us the history behind Charles and Anna's story. However, as much as I enjoy reading anything with Briggs work, I was bowled over by the narrator. Not only did Holter Graham move easily back and forth between characters, but I absolutely feel in love with his rendition of Charles and Bran. Sexy!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Alpha and Omega?

    When Anna first calls Bran and asks to speak to The Marrok, and he says, "I am the Marrok, child." You could hear all the world-weariness in his voice that Briggs brings our attention to. I wanted to cry.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end of course! All the bad guys got theirs and the good guys came out the winner, though Charles needs to be healed. I love that Anna found the courage to stand up for herself and her mate.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It broke my heart that Anna had never been told that werewolves couldn't have children. Thanks to Graham's narration, you can hear her shock and sadness that she had no idea that she couldn't ever have children.


    Any additional comments?

    Narrators can make or break a book, and Holter Graham brought this one to life and then some. The only person I've heard come close to being able to switch back and forth between characters as seamlessly would be James Marsters (in particular his reading of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files). He makes Charles voice stand out, and sound as masculine and sexy as we think of him. He also defined his father Bran in ways I had never stopped to consider. As well as I thought I knew the head of the American werewolves, Holter's reading gave me alot of insight into Bran and his responsibilities as the Marrok. Again, I say, sexy! I can't wait to listen to other books he's narrated.
