Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Rory Ni Coileain for stopping by today.
Title: Wolf, Becoming
Author: Rory Ni Coileain
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Maria Fanning
Genre: Erotica, Fantasy, Fiction, Paranormal, Romance
Volyk learns very young that he has to hide what he is—oboroten’, shape-shifter—after his father is killed and skinned by a hunter, and the pack that takes in his pregnant mother is hostile to his kind. When Volyk is ordered to fight the pack’s beta to prove his fitness, but instead obeys his hormones and tries to mount him, he’s declared an abomination and forced to flee.
Ilya, too, hides a secret. Being young and gay in modern Russia is dangerous, and he knows it. But the truth eventually gets out, and his brothers lure him into the forest to kill him. They’re stopped by Volyk, who hides the mortally wounded Ilya in his den. The only way to heal the human is to turn him into an oboroten’.
Unfortunately, Ilya’s gentle nature is ill suited to the life of a wolf. But when Volyk’s old pack returns, seeking to take away Volyk’s magickal den, Ilya will have to embrace – truly become – the wolf Volyk made him, to save both his mate’s life and his own.
Ten authors I admire
Ursula K. LeGuin – after her speech at the National Book Awards, I don’t just admire her, I want to BE her.
Jane Yolen – everything I want to be as a writer, in the event I am someday forced to grow up.
Diane Duane – a wonderful writer of science fiction, fantasy, and YA contemporary fantasy, celebrating diversity and alive with joy. AND she married an Irishman and moved to Ireland. Just back the envy truck up to the door, guys, I have a lot of loading up to do….
Neil Gaiman – a local boy, at least some of the time, and every word that comes out of him is golden.
Dan Simmons – when his work doesn’t fit into a genre, he gleefully makes one up. And writes it so well that he owns it permanently. If you haven’t read his Hyperion tetralogy, please go one-click. I’ll wait right here till you get back.
Julian May – her “Many-Colored Land” tetralogy works Celtic myth, legend and archetype into science fiction and science fantasy to absolute perfection.
Frank Herbert, Anne McCaffrey, and Mary Stewart – my introductions to science fiction, fantasy, and romance, respectively. I would not be where I am today without the three of them.
Eleanor Arnason – marvelous author of feminist speculative fiction, and one of the central members of the first writers’ group I ever belonged to, while I was still in college and had absolutely no idea what I was doing.
And can I just round this out with a very sincere “absolutely everyone writing in the m/m genre”? Y’all are laboring in a vineyard that will probably never make any of us rich, tending some of the sweetest grapes to be found anywhere as a labor of love, telling amazing stories and opening up hearts and minds along the way. I could not be happier to be among your number.

About the Author
Meet the author:
Rory Ni Coileain majored in creative writing, back when Respectable Colleges didn’t offer such a major. She had to design it herself, at a university which boasted one professor willing to teach creative writing: a British surrealist who went nuts over students writing dancing bananas in the snow, but did not take well to high fantasy. Graduating Phi Beta Kappa at the age of nineteen, she sent off her first short story to an anthology that was being assembled by an author she idolized, and received one of those rejection letters that puts therapists’ kids through college. For the next thirty years or so she found other things to do, such as going to law school, ballet dancing (at more or less the same time), volunteering as a lawyer with Gay Men’s Health Crisis, and nightclub singing, until her stories started whispering to her. Currently, she’s a lawyer and a legal editor; the proud mother of a budding filmmaker; and is busily wedding her love of myth and legend to her passion for m/m romance. She is a three-time Rainbow Award finalist.
