Guest Author McKayla Schutt with Shifting Tactics (Part One)

Hi all,

Finally weekend, yay! And it’s off to a good start as I have the fab McKayla Schutt visiting 🙂 McKayla is a very talented paranormal romance author, and a fellow wolf shifter fan – which seems appropriate during our A to Z wolfie month! She’s here to chat about her latest release, Shifting Tactics.

So, let’s start with you telling us a bit about yourself.

I am a stay at home mom with a little boy and little girl, two dogs and a husband of four years. I like to write Paranormal Romance books about the werewolves that take over my dreams.

Sounds like you have interesting dreams 😉 Was there a specific moment where you first knew that you wanted to be a writer?

Not that I can pin-point.

Do you have a particular writing routine, or any special rituals?

To me this question is a good joke…*giggle* I have two kids under the age of four right now, if I had a routine it would be to sit down and write. It’s always easier to get stuff done when they are asleep but alas some days they wear me out.

Hehe, sounds like a chaotic household, am amazed you squeeze any writing in! Tell us about the genre you write in, and what drew you to it.

I like to do the Paranormal Romance, I started getting into reading about Vampires for a while but then it shifted to Werewolves. That interest translated into my writing.

Yup, must admit to a fondness for wolves myself 🙂 Are there any particular authors or books that have really inspired you?

I like to read Decadent Kane and Ariel Marie they both are able to bring sexiness into their romance.

Ooh, I do love Decadent’s elf books! What five things could you never do without?

That would be my pepsi, my phone, my kids, my lovely husband and last my kindle. I love to read.

Tell us a bit about your new release.

Today is actually release day for Shifting Tactics Part One. It is about a woman who falls in love with two, yes I said two, alphas. One of the twists, these alphas are totally brothers. Oscar and Rift are just sexiness in their own rights. Add some rogues and we have a sexy romance with some problems.

Hehe, trouble the sexy alpha trouble – sign me up! Where did your inspiration for it come from?

I was reading a book about two alphas and then I had a few dreams about Oscar and Rift fighting over the same woman.

What did you find most enjoyable about writing it?

I loved exploring the relationship between all three characters and making sure Oscar didn’t take over. He is just like that.

What was the hardest part about writing it?

I would say the hardest part was making sure it was long enough at first.

Who’s your favorite character in it? (I know, I know, favoritism!)

I would have to say Scarlet would be my favorite since I can’t choose between the sexy alphas. 😉

Lol, well we can’t blame you there 🙂 Just in case anyone’s not convinced yet, why should we run out and buy it right now?

If you like sexy romance books then you will like Shifting Tactics Part One. It will keep you reading till you want more.


What happens when two Alphas imprint with one female?

Scarlet had no intention of losing herself to another man, one ex-husband was enough. But when a rogue wolf lays his sights on her, two Alphas come to her rescue. Seems fate had plans for Scarlet and gave her two mates instead of one. Her job as a female pack leader is simple, all she has to do is give up her independence, mate, and make babies. How will she deal with two wolves and her responsibilities, when her independence is the one thing she had managed to gain for herself?

Rift and Oscar run one of the local wolf packs. Together they have found a way to stay in charge and keep the peace. But with rogue wolves on the loose and new werewolf laws coming in from Congress, their peaceful pack might come undone. Find out more in Shifting Tactics-Part One.
