In fiction, shapeshifters kick ass.
In 21st Century Chicago, not so much.

Willa DiAngelo—divorcee, demi-goddess and sometime wolf—plots out theories for her unexplained powers in her popular paranormal novels. When two attempts are made on her life in quick succession, Willa must find the source of her freakish nature to figure out why someone wants her dead.

Dante, her ├╝ber-protective best friend and the subject of many erotic fantasies, actively discourages Willa from rooting around to find her family tree. The discovery of a grandmother she never knew existed turns Willa’s world upside down, with consequences that force her to choose between the man she loves and the family she’s always longed for.

Greco-Roman mythology meets the Brothers Grimm in THE GODDESS OF MICHIGAN AVENUE, approximately 85,000 words, a wolfish paranormal romance.
