Shape-shifters: a sub-genre
There are a lot of paranormal books out and I admit that I’ve read a lot of them. I like to read contemporary stories but paranormal or fantasy books appeal even more to me. From the sheer amount of books dealing with paranormal topics I take it that I’m not alone…
Now, m/m romance is a sub-genre anyway, so why did I chose to write a story that’s a niche in a niche? To be honest, that question only came up when I started reading some other blogs about m/m books.
Like I’ve mentioned above, I’ve always had a thing for paranormal books, and especially for stories in which the humans get to shift into an animal form. It fascinates me to no end! Do these shape-shifters have special communities? Do they always know they can shift or does it come as a surprise? How do they deal with their special abilities? How much of the typically associated animal behavior shows in the human’s personality? I could go on forever!
In A Purrfect Match Jim Sanders is a large, gray house-cat. Tony, Andrew’s son, confesses a lot of his secrets and worries to him, something he wouldn’t have done if Jim had been in his human form. Even Andrew talks freely to Jim as “Mr. Frosty”, which helps to push their relationship forward. Jim, Andrew and Tony bond on several levels, uniting them to a family.
Would they have become a family without Jim sometimes appearing on Andrew’s porch as “Mr. Frosty”? Nope, I don’t think so. The dynamic would have been very different. Jim’s shape-shifter abilities also allowed for some funny and warm-hearted moments. I really loved to write this story and hope readers will enjoy reading it.
