If you’ve never met an actual shape-shifter or were-beastie ~ darn it, I haven’t yet ~ perhaps you’ve wondered if there are such wondrous dangerous creatures residing on our Earth, in our Universe, in our quantum multiple universes. I contend, from my personal logic and from my other life-time remembrances, there are shape-shifters of every conceivable design, of every stripe and spot, from animal, insect to buckets of regenerating liquid (Star Trek).
What was one of my inspirations for creating Sun Rocket Kahoqua of the Windgrass Clan, my lioness shifter heroine in Red Lioness Tamed? It was the planet, Mars. Our next-door cosmic neighbor. The red planet named for the God of War. Since childhood, when I learned about the solar system, I’ve always been drawn to mysterious Mars. And certainly, since listening to Richard Hoagland, author of Dark Mission and genius Mars researcher, on Coast-to-Coastam with Art Bell, then with George Noory, Mars has become not only a fierce fascination, but a puzzle piece toward understanding our antediluvian civilizations, or the time of Atlantis and before.
The Red Lioness and Mars ~ well, there’s that enigmatic giant face on Mars, half feline and half human, if you truly study the features. Pyramids abound on the Mars surface, if you dare to study beyond what is provided for public consumption. Pyramids ~ Egypt ~ The Sphynx ~ The cat goddess, Bast ~ cat worship during the high culture of ancient Egypt. Okay and roar like the March lion, it appears like a definite connection to me, to my writer’s tale-spinning mind (or is that tail-spinning when creating Big Cat shifters?).
However, that’s where the fun begins for me. And where my logical mind leads, saying…hey, there must be feline humanoids. Not to mention there are some contactees who claim to have met feline humanoids and drawn their pictures.
Not surprisingly, the magical ‘what if’ waves in my mind like a wand. What if a feline race occupied Mars at one time? What if the ancient Egyptian civilization was partially based on that knowledge? What if the black ops scientists of today are doing their mad scientist best to breed races of human-cat hybrids? And how would that play out in the far future? When the galaxy has become nearly as small as our current world?
Red Lioness Tamed by Savanna Kougar ~ savannakougar.com,
Year 3051, the Earth calendar used on Terra-Mars, a terra-formed moon orbiting Mars, the home world of ‘Sun Rocket’ Kahoqua of the Windgrass Clan.
Blurb: What does a lioness shifter do when she’s suddenly trapped in an unknown space cruiser’s cargo hold? Then, despite her ability to savagely defend herself, she’s trapped beneath the handsome human Captain. And next, cat-scratching ridiculously, she finds herself carnal-trapped, and meow yowl! bound by leather straps in his bed?
Answer: She fights tooth and claw. Problem: The loner Captain is nova-hot at seducing her.
