One of the most common questions I get is why my werewolves are born rather than bitten. I knew from the start I wanted to make my wolves different from conventional werewolves, and lycanthropy being genetic is just one of the many ways that they are. I really wanted to explore the idea of a pack as a family unit rather than a collection of characters thrown together based on geography. That’s not to say there are no non-nuclear packs in my world. You’ll meet one in book 2. There’s still a lot to explore and learn about my wolves.
