Character Interview of the Stars of the Grey Wolves Series by Author Quinn Loftis

  Character Interviews of the stars of the Grey Wolves Series

Music seems to be a big part of your lives. What is your favorite musician/band and favorite song right now?

Jacque: As you guys know, my taste in music and songs change according to my moods. That said, there is a lot going on in the Romanian pack. The stuff has hit the fan, so as of right now my favorite band is Florence & The Machine, and the song Shake It Out. I mean, the line "It’s always darkest before the dawn"? Yeah, that's where we are right now.

Jen: I know what y'all are thinking…E.T., right? …Nope. Sorry to disappoint, but my favorite band is Evanescence. Right now I have two favorite songs. I'm sure you guys can figure out why. I mean, I'm kind of in a tight spot. They're Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up" and Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love". If you haven't heard them, stop reading this and go listen to them. Oh, and when you guys get to Dec's answer, don't tease him about his girly handwriting. That's my job.

Sally: I'm pretty simple. I looooove Jason Walker, and his song "Down" is my fave. See? Simple.

Fane: Pearl Jam. Favorite song right now? Well, as my mate said, it's pretty dark right now, so the song that keeps going through my head is 30 Seconds to Mars' "Hurricane".

Decebel: I can tell you right now that the song I'm playing at night when I'm unable to sleep is "Won't Turn Back" by Need To Breathe. And, Jennifer, it's not girly handwriting. I learned to write in the 1800s, when neat handwriting was necessary.

Who do you consider your hero?

Jacque: My mom. She loved a man that she knew could never truly be hers. But she loved him anyways. She told me once that to love guarantees pain at some time in your life and pain helps us grow and change. But to never love, to never experience the joy and pain that comes with love, guarantees stagnancy. She asked, "Do you know what stagnancy is? How it's defined?" My answer, "To not move." She said, "Nope. It's worse than that, kiddo. Stagnancy means unmoving, but also foul or stale, not developing, inactive. That is what happens to a person who doesn't take a risk on love."

Jen: My heroes are actually my two best friends. Who else would put up with me?

Sally: I don't want to say this person's name because their ego doesn't need stroking. But my hero is someone I love dearly and is all the things I wish I could be. Bold, sexy, assertive, confident, completely comfortable in their own skin. I wish I could not care about others' opinions and just be. That's what this person does.

Fane: My father. The example he sets in how he loves his Luna and his pack is unmatched by any other Alpha. I would do well to be half as good as him.

Decebel: My mate. I've never met someone so pig-headed and stubborn. She's mine. Every ounce of fierce loyalty, deep love, fervent determination, unwavering faithfulness, is mine. She chose me. How can she not be my hero?

Decebel, what annoys you more than anything about Jen?
She's stubborn...and she's stubborn. Did I mention she's stubborn?

Jen, what kind of things embarrass you?
What does embarrass mean? ....Oh, alright… Things that embarrass me... Well, singing Katy Perry's "E.T." while in the shower, smashed off my butt… Wait, it gets better. Also improvising the song's lyrics with werewolf body parts…Wait for it, while the werewolf I'm pining after listens. Oh,oh, and then running out butt-ass-naked in front of said werewolf. Yeah, think that about covers it.

Sally, what do you value in your friends?
Loyalty and honesty. And the ability to sit up all night and eat raw cookie dough while watching chick flicks or horror flicks…the events of the week that determine the movie genre.

What is your most treasured possession?
Jacque: That's an easy one. The ring Fane gave me at our bonding ceremony.

Jen: It's not a what, it's a who.

Sally: A locket my great grandmother gave me. I left it back in the States 'cause I was worried I'd lose it. It's been passed down for generations.

Fane: Jacquelyn gave me the paper her vows were written on after our bonding ceremony. That paper, with her words and promises, is engraved on my heart. It is my most treasured possession.

Decebel: The text messages from when I was separated from Jennifer during the Gathering. I saved them.

What is something you've learned that you hate?

Jacque: I'm thinking you mean something that was a hard lesson. One of those "yeah, I get it, but I don't have to like it" things. For me it's knowing my mother lied to me. I understand why she kept my father's identity a secret and I might have done the same thing in her shoes. But that doesn't make it any easier to deal with.

Jen: That it's possible for Jennifer Adams to need a guy. And not just any guy, but a fur ball! I mean, seriously. What the hell is that all about? I'm just saying.

Sally: I'm responsible for the health and well-being of a pack of werewolves. I mean, gypsy blood? Really? You may say, "But, Sally, that's so cool". Maybe, but all I can think is, "What if I mess up? What if I can't do enough and something happens to someone I love?" Sorry, didn't mean for this to turn into a counseling session.

Fane: I can't always protect Jacquelyn. I can't put her in a bubble and keep all the evil things away from the one person in my life that I live and die for. As Jen would say, it sucks serious moth balls. I asked her, "Why mothballs?" and her reply was, "Go suck some mothballs, then see if you need to ask me again."

Decebel: I learned I wasn't been able to protect my mate. No words can describe what it feels like to lose the other half of your soul.

Favorite superhero and why?
Jacque: Batman. He's hot!

Jen: Wolverine, duh. He's hotter!

Sally: Does James Bond count as a superhero? If so, he's the hottest!

Fane: Wonder Woman…she's hot. (Two can play at this game, mate.)

Decebel: (Good call, Fane.) She-Ra…she's smokin'.

Jen: Whoa, whoa. Hold the train. Wonder Woman and She-Ra? Really? Are you two blind? I mean, at least Cat Woman has a whip and -- depending on the comic book edition and if you're lucky-- a tail. Geez, I'm embarrassed. Wonder Woman and She-Ra... You might as well have said Judy Jetson. Okay, sorry to interrupt the interview. I'm done now.

Fane, what do you think of Jaccque's friends? How much has changed from day 1 'til now?
I think that Jacquelyn's friends are amazing. She is lucky to have them and I'm lucky to have gained them as friends through her. Jacquelyn has grown as a person and mate. She's beginning to realize who she is and who she wants to be. I feel so blessed to get to start our journey together so young.

Jacque, what would you say was your happiest moment?
Jen would tell you it is the day I met her. Granted, when she walked up to me in first grade and said, "You're gonna sit by me because I'm your new best friend", it was pretty awesome. I mean, seriously. How could that not be my happiest moment? But really, my happiest moment was the night Fane and I were bonded. I won't repeat the things whispered that night, but that night was the happiest ever.
