“Blue and Grey” is an urban fantasy set in a post apocalyptic city and dealing with the long term effects and problems after about a generation, but focused on the two main characters.
Blue is a young streetbrat who unwillingly and uncontrollably turns into a cat every night.
Grey is a Master Burglar, half “elf” half grey-fox shifter, who is completely in control of his shift since he’s been trained since birth.
They meet when he needs someone small who can climb well for an important “job”, and she needs someone to teach her about shifting.
What I mostly need help with is world building. (A -lot- of help. >;<)

I love/am addicted to anything dealing with myths, legends, fairy tale retellings, humorous fantasy, urban fantasy, cyberpunk/steampunk…and the occasional genre romance. Kids books, classics, YA…I’ll read almost -anything- you put in front of me. If I get bored I’ll start reading cereal boxes. ;p

|More About Me||
I’m 42 and just now getting serious…well, semi-serious…about writing. I blame my unnaturally wide range of reading experiences on my mother. When I was just starting to read “real” books, around 5 or so, I discovered her book collection. 4 boxes of Readers Digest Condensed Books (each book had 4 books in it) spanning about 10 yrs. of “contemporary” fiction. Dorothy Gilman, Dick Francis, Mary Stewart, and many, many, many others. Plus a book of Japanese myths and legends, Myths and Legends of the Ages, Grimms Faerie unabridged, Roald Dahl (the adult short stories…brrr), Taming of the Shrew, a book of Celtic myths and legends, and a book of stories that I -believe- was called The Book of Djinn. I devoured almost all of these by the time I turned 7, and I’ve just kept going ever since. *g*
