Diane and Shark!

Please welcome L. Diane Wolfe to the blog today!


Greetings to all of Jemi’s followers and fans!

 She has allowed me today to share with you the latest release in the In Darkness series – The Shark. It’s a paranormal romance novella involving Jewels the human and Clarence the great white shark. (No beastiality though!)


Jemi asked me to elaborate on one of five topics. But I couldn’t decide! So, I am discussing three of them and keeping it short.


What cool shark facts did you find when you were researching for the book?


“Great white sharks possess 300 sharp, triangular teeth arranged in up to seven rows.”


That is the first line in the story and still rather mind-blowing. Should a great white latch on to you, there is no getting out of that death grip.


What's your favourite shark fact and why?


Sharks tend to fear dolphins. Sharks are solitary hunters while dolphins form a pod that will attack anything that attacks one of its members. Orcas (members of the dolphin family) are THE apex predator of the sea and will even hunt great whites. And to top it off, dolphins are far smarter than sharks. To me, that’s just so wild that a dolphin, smaller than a great white, scares the sharks.


How would your cats feel about visiting an aquarium?


I had to answer this! Rocket would be terrified. She doesn’t like travel, new places, or new people. Star however, would love it. After his initial shock at the new accommodations, as long as there weren’t many people about, he would have a grand time watching the fishies. (Which he enjoys doing at home with my 39 gallon tank.) He would paw at them and run from one glass to the next, trying to get to the fishies. It would be so cute!


Thank you, Jemi!

In Darkness: The Shark
By L. Diane Wolfe

Souls shrouded in darkness…

Focused on her studies and duties at the aquarium, Jewels prefers her solitary life. Burned many times and short on trust, she has more in common with her aquatic friends than the people around her. But she never imagined coming face to face with a shark named Clarence…a shark who talks!

As their friendship grows, Jewels must overcome her deep set mistrust. There are dangers, both in the Australian ocean and on dry land. Can Jewels depend on the great white or will his animal nature betray her?

Awesome! I LOVE the pic of Star with his fishies - he would definitely love the aquarium.

That's a lot of teeth for a Great White - not something I'd like to see up close!

How about you? Any shark facts? Anyone visiting the aquariums with Star? Who's excited about Diane's latest book?

Congratulations Diane. Our cats with be with yours on the aquarium front - on all counts. In the past we had a cat who went fishing in the outdoor pond - and brought her trophies to the front door.

Congrats on your book, Diane! I didn't realize how many teeth sharks have. Yikes!

Congrats to Diane! Interesting that sharks tend to fear dolphins- I guess we can all be afraid of strange things. ;)
