Talking with author Lisa Oliver
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Hello and thank you for hosting me on your blog today. There’s not much to tell to be honest. I am a ‘mature’ woman, with grown children and grandchildren. I have been writing for about seventeen years and originally wrote non-fiction books about any topics I found interesting. I started writing fiction in November 2013 and haven’t stopped since. I love drinking tea, eating chocolate and my little dog Lulu who shares my office with me every day.
What is your book(s) about?
I write M/M paranormal romances – usually wolf shifters, although I throw in other shifter types, vampires and the Fae, when the story calls for it. All of my books center on one specific couple and follows them until they reach their HEA. I currently have four series of books, so there are a variety of different types of stories for readers to choose from.
If you could be any paranormal creature what would you be?
I would love to be a shifter – the ability to turn into a predatory animal, and have increased senses and strength could come in handy sometimes – especially when I am at the supermarket.
Are any of your characters like you?
All of my main characters are men, so the obvious answer would be no. But my friend, who has read all of my books, claims that a lot of the dialogue has things in it she can imagine me saying. My books are a way of expressing my personal viewpoints on things like cheating (there are none in my books), surviving abuse and things like that, so in that respect I would have to say yes.
Is there anything you would tell aspiring writers?
Write every day – even if it’s 100 words, write every day. That’s the only way your book will ever be finished.
If you write a series do you reread your previous books before you begin the new one?
Yes I do. Because I have four different series running at the moment, and they are all different, I re-read the previous books to remind myself of the characters, the mood of the story and how I felt when I was writing the earlier ones. I hope that helps to bring some continuity to my stories.
Is there anything you wish to say to your readers?
My readers are the best people in the whole world. Recently I had some personal problems and I had to postpone the launch of one of my books. I was worried my readers would be disappointed, but the amount of support and encouragement I got via Facebook and emails has been overwhelming. Although I write my stories for me, I am always conscious of never letting my readers down. They are an amazing group of people and I thank them every day for being so supportive.
I’m always looking for book recommendations. What books have you been reading? Would you recommend them?
OMG, how long have you got? I have literally dozens of favorite authors, all in the M/M niche. Just recently I have been reading books by Stormy Glenn, Olivia Black and Jessie G. All three of these authors appeal to me because they write intense emotions, and riveting story lines, apparently effortlessly and I would recommend any book by all three authors, to anyone that likes the M/M genre.
What do readers have to look forward to in the future from you?
More of the same lol. By now Book 6 of the Cloverleah Pack should be published, or very close. The second book in the Stockton Wolves series is next – that focuses on Sin, the one human I have written about so far. Book 5 of the Bound and Bonded series is also underway and I have another idea for my Alpha and Omega series that I am trying to find the time to explore. So lots of new books coming up in the near future.
What has been the defining moment in your career that made you think “Yes, I am now a writer!”?
I remember publishing The Reluctant Wolf, the first book in the Cloverleah Pack, back in March last year. I hadn’t done any promotion for it, it was a totally new genre for me, and yet within days I had readers getting in touch with me and letting me know how much they loved my story. I have always been a writer, but in that moment I was a writer with readers, and that made my day.
Get Off My Case by Lisa Oliver
Release Date: December, 2014
Publisher: Oliver Group Publication
Cover Artist: Lisa Oliver
The first 20,000 words of this story were published as a free read for the Goodreads MMRomance Group Love's Landscapes Project. 49,000 words have been added to make this into the book my characters wanted it to be.
Shane West was used to being the only wolf shifter at the Stockton Police Department. His enhanced senses helped him do his job efficiently and he prided himself on keeping control of his animal instincts. Gay from the first day he'd shifted, he also expected to live his long life alone, and provided it meant that he didn't have to come into contact with any of his ex-pack, he told himself he was happy. And he was. Until Dimitri Polst was assigned as his new partner.
Confirmed ladies man, Dimitri Polst knew Shane from before he'd ever shifted into his wolf form. Two years older and from the same pack, Dimitri had made it his teenage mission to bring as much pain and humiliation to pretty-boy Shane as possible. But years later, he searched for that pretty boy, now all grown up, with a completely different mission in mind.
Being fated mates was hard enough, but when one man is straight and the other one has no reason to trust, then sparks are bound to fly. Add in a serial killer who is making inroads into the gay population and a possible shifter involvement, and Shane and Dimitri have a lot of thing to overcome before they get their HEA.

By the time Dimitri had got to the back door of the club he knew his wolf was close to the surface. He could feel his eyes changing and the hair on his arms start to tingle. It was only through sheer force of will that he stopped the change completely. Must not shift in front of humans, he tried to remind himself as he searched the dark alley, sniffing for his mate’s unique scent. There, deep in the shadows. The young blond was wrapped around Shane’s waist and neck like he belonged there.
Growling loudly Dimitri strode over to where the two men were hidden, his hands changing into claws as he itched to grab the little interloper and tear his body to inch sized bloody pieces. He couldn’t and wouldn’t hurt his mate, but he could and definitely would shred the little blond until he wasn’t a threat to Dimitri’s mating again.
“Dimitri, stop damn it!” Shane called out in a low voice as he carefully wound the young blond’s arms from his neck. “This is not what you think.”
Dimitri stopped himself, just, and watched as Shane spoke in a low voice in CJ’s ear and then gave him some money. CJ looked up at Dimitri and scowled at him and then took off back into the club. Shane flung out his arm and grabbed Dimitri by his belt loops and smashed him into the same wall he had been leaning on while he was entangled in his blond. But Shane’s eyes weren’t full of passion, Dimitri noticed. His mate was pissed off with him, big time.
“You just cost me some valuable information, fuck wit. Now what the hell did you think you were doing?” Shane snarled at him in a low voice.
“Is that how you get all of your information, detective,” Dimitri snarled right back. “By giving sexual favors to your tipsters?” Fuck, with Shane so close Dimitri could barely breathe. His cock was so hard in his jeans that it hurt and he couldn’t break his stare with his mate. Man, this guy was awesome when he was angry.
Shane tipped his head to the side and then took in a deep breath, obviously smelling Dimitri’s arousal. For a moment he looked confused, but that expression was gone in an instant and Shane’s angry gaze was back again. He leaned in flush against Dimitri’s body and growled softly in his ear, “CJ is an informant of mine. He’s been beaten before for talking to the wrong people and I don’t want to see my friend in hospital. We act like a hookup so he will be safe, asshole. So don’t go judging what you don’t understand.”
“But you’ve fucked him, right?” Dimitri regretted the words the instant they came out of his mouth as he watched a flash of pure murderous intent race across his mate’s hard face.
“Not that it’s any of your business, fuckwit, but I have never done anything sexually with CJ or any of my informants. Unlike you, I have standards.” Dimitri knew Shane was referring to the fact that when Dimitri was still in school he used to fuck anything in a skirt regardless of who it was. With his jock reputation and good looks he never lacked for girls willing to lift those skirts and give him what he wanted.
But right now Dimitri didn’t care that Shane was angry with him, or that he might have fucked up an investigation. Shane was leaning on him, chest to chest, but had kept his groin area away from Dimitri. And Dimitri was so turned on he couldn’t think. He needed friction on his cock and he needed it now. He reached out and grabbed Shane by his hips and pulled the man’s groin into his. Both men groaned as their dual erections nudged each other and Dimitri rocked into Shane looking for more.
“What the fuck do you think you are doing?” Shane snarled. Dimitri could see Shane’s eyes were blown with lust and the man was panting softly. Against his cock, Shane’s sizable erection nudged his and for the first time in his life Dimitri wanted to see another man’s cock. But not just any cock - Shane’s.
“I haven’t got a clue,” Dimitri said honestly, his own deep voice raspy with lust, “But I know I like it.”
