Interview with Kristen Strassel, Author of So I Married a Werewolf

22 Jun 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write So I Married a Werewolf?

In an earlier book (Instant Mate) I created a tertiary character who needed a line, which meant she needed a name. I decided she was a drag queen wolf shifter named Bibi le Bonnet. It wasn’t long before my one line character was taking over things, so she got her own series. The Mating Game is like the old Dating Game, with shifters. Bibi is the host and fairy dragmother who is giving everyone a much needed life makeover. And finding a super hot shifter for them to spend forever with.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of So I Married a Werewolf, what would they be?

I don’t write with a soundtrack, but if I were to pick a theme song, it would probably be an anthem from the 80s… because it’s fun!

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Romance. I read a bunch of different types. And yes, it’s also my favorite to write. Gimme that happily ever after.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I’ve picked up a couple of monster romances by Ashley Bennett and CM Nascosta.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The sexy massage scene. It has all of that delicious tension, and both characters are starting to think this could work.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Hmmm… I like to watch Food Network while I write. I also journal my ideas for stories instead of a formal outline.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

You create your own reality.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I hope they loved the fun rags to riches Cinderella vibe with the rumbly wolf.
