WOLVEN is a fantasy firmly rooted in the mysterious present. A boy and his eccentric grandparents live near a strange wood - apparently cursed. He longs for a dog - but the dirty ungainly farm creature finally found by his grandfather hardly fits his image of the perfect pet. And it howls in the night. But it's only when his dog starts to grow human ears that he realises that something is seriously wrong. The truth is stranger than his wildest dreams -the boy who appears, alarmingly unpredictably, is a kind of special werewolf in reverse. A noble, almost heraldic breed of WOLVEN - the kings own werewolves from ancient times, who have been in hiding until rediscovered by evil government scientists who are trying to breed werewolves as weapons
Di Toft was born in 1958 and obsessed by Hammer Horror films by the time she was ten (especially those featuring Christopher Lee). Her favourite book is Dracula by Bram Stoker and she wishes she had written it. She lives in Somerset with her husband and daughter.
The Toft's have a humungous white dog called Dave who is so large, he can be seen via Google Earth. Dave was responsible for inspiring the Wolven series as he is a dead ringer for Woody, the scruffy article that everyone thinks is a stinky old dog. But we know better, don't we?
Di loves meeting Nat and Woody's fans and eating cheesecake (preferably at the same time).
