Hunger Moon by Melissa Snark
Valkyrie Victoria Storm desires nothing more than to provide her wolf pack with a safe haven, but her position as priestess to the Goddess Freya also brings with it certain… obligations. Not to mention complications.
War with the Barrett family resulted in the deaths of her parents and most of her pack. Now, hunters are hot on the trail of the remaining pack members. Sawyer Barrett, a human hunter hell bent on revenge, is convinced that Victoria murdered his brother. He will stop at nothing to see her dead.
Victoria must defend the survivors and somehow lead them to safety. Months on the run has weakened the pack, and there are newborn pups to protect, making swift travel impossible. Ahead, the promise of refuge beckons.
Their best chance for survival lies in Sierra Pines, California: Arik Koenig, a powerful, dominant male wolf. He promises to protect and provide for the pack, something Victoria knows the pack needs for survival. His mysterious past is riddled with violence and death, including the slaughter of his entire family twenty years before. His wife died under mysterious circumstances and his son, Logan, is rumored to be her killer.
What is truth? Who can she trust? The desperate spirit of Arik’s murdered wife calls out for help, and Logan begs for assistance in clearing his name. Victoria must solve a murder that has pitted father against son, rooted in a mystery reaching back two decades. Her quest starts her on a journey from the human world to Odin’s Valhalla and back again.
Victoria will find salvation or face destruction beneath the Hunger Moon…

Now for the Interview...
Q: Tell me a little bit about yourself. What do you do for fun?
I'm a stay-at-home mom and the mother of three children aging in range from two to thirteen. I have two boys and one girl. My daughter is the baby. I talk about my family a lot on my humor blog, http://melissasnark.blogspot.com/.
For fun, I enjoy spending time with my kids, reading, and playing games of all sorts. I also consider writing fun. (Not the editing, but the first draft stuff. Lol)
Q: What do you like most about the genre you write in?
I love being able to work with an era and setting that is familiar to me while embroidering on it with my imagination. It's so much fun fantasizing about how mythology might interact with our modern culture and bringing mystical creatures to life.
Q: Where is your favorite place to write?
My downstairs desk when the house is quiet. Unfortunatley, our office is open to the rest of the house because it's a converted family room so I tend to get hit with a lot of distractions. Kids can be really noisy. There are times when I like to take a laptop and retreat to someplace less busy.
Q: What’s your next project?
Following the May release of "Hunger Moon", I have a paranormal romance novel that's been in the works for a couple years. I have one more chapter left before it's ready for a final polishing and then is ready to submit to a publisher.
After that, I'm planning on finishing the sequel to "Hunger Moon", called "Battle Cry". The adventures of Victoria Storm continue with a confrontation with the hunters her werewolf pack is at war with, then a long chase through the Arizona desert. It's gonna be a blast! :-)
Q: How do you feel about Dr. Pepper?
Yuck. Lol (Sorry.)
When I drink soda, it's Diet Coke, Hansen's Diet, or Diet 7up. The rest of the time I stick to coffee, water and flavored waters.
For everyone who stops, please wish Melissa a Happy Birthday today!
