USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of the LOVE’S SECOND CHANCE SERIES. Bree Wolf has always been a language enthusiast (though not a grammarian!) and is rarely found without a book in her hand or her fingers glued to a keyboard. Trying to find her way, she has taught English as a second language, traveled abroad and worked at a translation agency as well as a law firm in Ireland. She also spent loooong years obtaining a BA in English and Education and a MA in Specialized Translation while wishing she could simply be a writer. Although there is nothing simple about being a writer, her dreams have finally come true.
“A big thanks to my fairy godmother!”
Currently, Bree has found her new home in the historical romance genre, writing Regency novels and novellas. Enjoying the mix of fact and fiction, she occasionally feels like a puppet master, forcing her characters into ever-new situations that will put their strength, their beliefs, their love to the test, hoping that in the end they will triumph and get the happily-ever-after we are all looking for.

Q&A with Bree
Would you like to live in the time period and places you write about in your books?Yes, it does sound like fun…in novels at least! The balls, the gowns, the gentlemen! Unfortunately, that is only fiction (hmm, I often kind of block that out!). Well, I do like having a voice and ruling over my own life so…NO! But I’d do a two-week time travel trip! You know, as a vacation. Would be fun, wouldn’t it?
What is your writing Kryptonite?Noise! Lights! People! Anything really! I’m easily distracted. Perhaps I should work in a bunker, deep underground. Still, I often drift off in my mind from thought to thought, forgetting about the story I’m in the middle of writing. Now, what am I going to do about that?
What is your writing process like? Are you more of a plotter or a pantser?Oh, I like being in control. So, yes, I plan and plot and tie everything up in neat, little packages. Unfortunately, however, my characters often have a mind of their own and so it is not unheard of that my carefully laid-out plot gets tossed out the window and replaced by something utterly new and unexpected. But truthfully, I’ve never once regretted it!
Does writing energize or exhaust you?Both. It does make me feel alive and motivated and…like I’m on top of the world. But at the same time, I can feel the energy being sucked out of me. So, I write in the morning, and when my head starts buzzing, I stop. So far, it’s worked fine!
