Meet the Author

Carole Nelson Douglas, author of more than fifty fantasy and science fiction, mystery, mainstream, and romance novels, was an award-winning reporter and editor for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. After writing some bestselling high fantasy novels and SF thrillers, she imported fantasy notions into her Midnight Louie mystery series, which features a hard-boiled Las Vegas PI who’s a feline “Sam Spade with hairballs.” Her Irene Adler historical series made Carole the first author to use a woman from the Sherlock Holmes stories as a protagonist in the 1991 New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Good Night, Mr. Holmes. She’s won or been short-listed for more than fifty writing awards in nonfiction, sf/fantasy, mystery, and romance genres, including several from the Romance Writers of America and Romantic Times BOOKreviews magazine, and the Cat Writers’ Association. In 2008, RT BOOKreviews magazine named Carole a “pioneer of the publishing industry. Carole and husband Sam Douglas, a former art museum exhibitions director and kaleidoscope designer, are kept as pets by five stray cats and a dog in Fort Worth, Texas. She collects vintage clothing, and does a mean Marilyn Monroe impersonation, and, yes, she does dance, but not with werewolves. As far as she knows.

    entertaining urban fantasy

    At the turn of the new Millennia, the Y2K crisis fizzles and the end of days never happened. What did occur is that the creatures of myth and legend including vampires, werewolves, witches and others came out into the open. Old timers think it is a hoax but youngsters, like twenty-something Delilah Street know these creatures are real. Having been raised in an orphanage, never adopted or fostered out, she learned to be self-sufficient and independent. --- While watching television, she sees a doppelganger of herself down to the earring in her nose. She goes to Las Vegas and the producer Mr. Nightwine of the show mistakes her for Maggie the corpse who has become a cult favorite. He provides Delilah a place to live on his estate while she tries to track her double down and she meets Ric Montrose, searching for dead bodies. When she douses with him they find new bodies wearing clothing at least sixty years old. She feels their last moments of life and learns she is a certain type of medium. Ric and Delilah are attracted to her but other people take an interest in her including Snow a vampire who encircles her arm with a bracelet formed of his hair and werewolf Cicerau who mistakes Delilah for her double and kidnaps her to be in his magic show. She uses her new found powers to escape and helps Ric identify the two dead lovers while trying to find out who she really is. --- Carole Nelson Douglas leaves her Midnight Louie series to provide fans with an entertaining urban fantasy with that rivals that of Kim Harrison and Kelly Armstrong. The protagonist jumps from the frying pan into the fire as she tries to stay one step ahead of her enemies and those who want to use her. DANCING WITH WEREWOLVES is a mystical delight. --- Harriet Klausner

    Exciting but a bit overwelming.

    Carole Nelson Douglas has always been good at blending reality with fantasy (Midnight Louie's narrative); and with blending fictional characters with historical characters (Irene Adler series). This series takes the reader to an alternate world where myth and legend are real, at least the Hollywood versions. I like the idea, but there was just so much to absorb that I will have to re-read this book before going on to the next of the series.

    My favorite of the alternate realities in the story is the idea that characters from old black and white films can become "really" real. It does seem that the old movies did more to develop their characters than current movies that rely more on special effects.

    My least favorite part of the book was its' cover art. I have long ago realized that the artists do not read the book before they draw the cover, but this one irks me. Here is Deliah's description when seeing her dog Quicksilver for the first time, "I approached the cage, then tapped the wires to see the most beautiful pale blue eyes ever, way better than my own, turn to me from a silver-and-cream furred face. A widow's peak of darker fur over those amazing eyes made them seem almost human." He was a mix breed from the wolf-spitz family. On the cover of the paperback book, however, she is standing with a grizzled wolf. I would much rather see Quicksilver.

    Excellent New Paranormal Heroine

    I really like Delilah Street; she's gutsy and streetwise while retaining some softness. She's a mix of Sookie Stackhouse, Kitty Norville and Mercy Thompson while being very original. She takes the changes in her situation in stride and runs headlong into a new world. The CinSim characters are fresh as her newly-acquired paranormal dog, Quicksilver. And her new Latin lover, Ric is hotter than a 2-dollar pistol. Throwing in the old movie references is great fun. The writing is fresh, witty and has provided me with hours of enjoyment. I highly recommend this book/series.

    It's not often I stop midway through a book.

    I loved the premise of this book, but the writing style and protagonist's voice/thought process was just too distracting.

    wonderful series start

    A strange phenomena--when an author changes style or direction, there's often a violent knee-jerk reaction from fans to the shift. You constantly see people complaining about an author doing the same old, same old. Yet, let a writer give you a fresh premise, a plot totally unlike anything she's done before and readers surprisingly scream, 'burn the witch'. I think readers--fans--often seek long time authors out for 'comfort food'. The books may not be exciting, but you know what your money is going for it's safe. Despite the whines of 'nothing new', when an author makes that about face, they nearly get stoned! Carole Nelson Douglas --long time author with over fifty titles to her credit in the Irene Adler series and the Midnight Louie series--hops to another publisher and gives you the wildly zany Dancing With Werewolves. While I love her other stories, I truly enjoyed this book, and look forward to others in the series to come. It's sharply written, very witty and kept me turning pages until I read the whole book in one sitting. As fans become accustomed to this new direction for this talented author, I fully expect to see praise for her new style. In a genre that's quickly filling with authors left and right, Nelson brings a fresh and sassy voice to Delilah Street. A woman with a dim past, she knows she was named after the street where she was found orphaned. She's currently an investigative reporter heading up the paranormal beat in Wichita, Kansas. The theme reminded me faintly of the movie Fred Ward did for HBO (Cast a Deadly Spell, 1991), where paranormal was normal. I absolutely adored Ward's Harry Phillip Lovecraft character, so it follows I would enjoy this book, too. While watching a television show, Delilah spots a cadaver being dissected and gets a chill. The 'dead body' could be her twin sister! When the vampire anchorman tries to put the bite on her and she ends up fired, then she loses her dog and her home, Delilah figures someone is trying to tell her it's time to take the show on the road--and find out if there's a clone who may be her sister. Vegas has always been considered a bit strange, but in this alternative world, werewolves are literally running the town. Besides the werewolves, there are a few witches and other not quite humans that keep the plot moving and full of surprises. As in the Ward movie, it's an odd blend on urban fantasy and film noir that is brought to life under the talented pen...hum...keyboard of Ms. Douglas. My husband absolutely adored this book, so it should appeal to both sexes

    this book is a howl

    I am big fan of her other books, so I wasn't sure how she would do with this one. Wow. I simply LOVED it. I recall a couple films HBO did sometime back with Fred Ward. Alternative Universe where magic was the means. People used it for everything. I really loved them. This book hits that cord. I cannot wait for more in the series from this very talented author

    Really original urban fantasy Adapting the usual supernaturals-

    Really original urban fantasy

    Adapting the usual supernaturals--werewolves, vampires, demons, and some unusual ones--to a future Las Vegas bent on commercially exploiting and feeding on the supernatural craze makes for a really original reinvention of urban fantasy with a lot of crime noir elements. Delilah Street (think Della Street, Lawyer-sleuth Perry Mason's right-hand woman) is a mostly mortal investigator fighting werewolf mobsters and demon drug lords. Her friends, lenemies, and frenemies are some of the most unusual suspects in the urban fantasy genre . . . like an albino rock star hotel owner and an ex-FBI guy who can dowse for the dead, not to mention the dog.

    Alot about nothing

    I hate this book it was boring and went on and on about nothing. I wish i had my money back. So stupid and no ending. Del never solved the mystery just added more to it. Her dreams are a mystery what she is a mystery everything is an unsolved mystery.

    It felt like I was reading a stream of consciousness from an 8th grader with ADD. I couldn't get halfway through before giving up on it.

    Outstandig series!

    This is an amazing series. This first book sucks the reader in immediantly with 3 demensional charactors that feel real. The author is extremely talented in weaving just the right touch of humor with horror managing create a fun romp in an imaginative supernatural world rather than simply horifying. I found this a wonderfully refreshing tale on what has quickly become predictable fare in the supernatural genre. This author quickly became one of my top ten, and high on the list at that. Don't miss out on this series!

    Finally!

    I've just started reading it and have cracked up at least twice within the first couple of pages. I have to say to find a paranormal book where the heroine isn't an assassin or cop is refreshing. I'm all for strong women characters, but they don't ALWAYS have to be bada** assassins, cops, US Marshals, or some type of investigator, who take no crap. It gets redundant. On that note alone this book gets five stars. I'm looking forward to finishing the book.

    DON'T READ THIS!!!

    I hated reading this book because everything was all over the place and the main character was too nonchalant about the supernatural. The ending was not concrete, leaving too many loose ends and many things unexplained. The plot revolves around the concept of CSI Las Vegas, goth style, but you're better off just watching the show than reading the book.

    Carole Nelson Douglas delivers again

    Carole Nelson Dogulas never fails to deliver and Dancing with Werewolves is no exception. I loved the blend of mystery and the paranormal. I especially loved that the paranormals didn't take over the story, but allowed the 'normals' to be center stage. The characters surrounding Del and Ric have some echoes to characters met elsewhere in written and media formats. Not wanting to spoil the surprise I won't give my take on Hector but I loved him! The story itself rocked. Delilah was tenacious at getting to the bottom of the mystery. I really liked how she didn't let her newly found medium talent overwhelm her - instead she embraced it and used it to help her find her way through the roadblocks and finally arrive at the truth. And a certain Hollywood icon appears in a very different role. I loved it! Finally the dogs - I loved them both. Adding Quicksilver was perfect and what a dog. Temple goes around mostly ignorant of how much Louie helps her but Delilah gets it right away about Quicksilver. Nice! I can't really point to one thing I liked more than the other in the book. For me it had a nice blend of the familiar (the Las Vegas setting and some echos of Temple and Louie), the new and unknown - the characters and the paranormal - and a darn good mystery tying it all together. Bring on the sequel!
