If you have not yet read the Redcliffe novels, and you intend to do so, then I recommend you do not read this post, for I am about to discuss a very large spoiler in my stories…
When I wrote Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel), I intended to tell the story about a vampire and a human, and what happened when they fell in love. The vampire is a twin, and his brother just happens to be the alpha werewolf of the Redcliffe pack. Now, if that isn’t confusing enough, the object of their affection is Jessica Stone, a woman who always thought she was human, until she met Jack Mason.
Something about the vampire brought out Jessica’s true nature. She is a witch. She never knew this because she is an orphan. As the story unfolds, we learn more about Jessica, as she discovers her own secrets. It isn’t until we move into book 2, Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel), that we meet Jessica’s spirit animal, Suri the snow tiger. Why a snow tiger? I don’t know. I never created her, I never planned to include her. She suddenly appeared one evening during a frenzied writing session, and now she grows stronger every day.
I am still a little confused about what Suri actually is. I mean, she is a metaphysical creature; she is not solid. She resides in a sort of spiritual plane, accessed via Jessica’s psychic mind. And yet, there is a possibility that Suri might become real, or a physical animal, at some point in the future. As I write book 4 in the Redcliffe series, Jessica and Suri are locked in a battle of wills.
You see, Suri wants the werewolf alpha, Danny Mason. She tasted his power in Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel), and now she wants more. He wants her too, and subsequently he wants Jessica, in every sense of the word. It is a very confusing and dramatic situation. And I never planned any of this. I just wrote it! I love the power of stories…
