Blog Tour: Courage Runs Red (Blood Red #1) by W.J. May




Runs Red


Red #1)





24th - Aug 31st

What if

courage was your only option?

When Kallie lands a college interview with the city’s new hot-shot police

officer she has no idea everything in her life is about to change. The

detective is young, handsome and seems to have an unnatural ability to stop the

increasing local crime rate.

When a raging blood feud between vampires spills into her home, Kallie gets

caught in the middle.


May grew up in the fruit belt of Ontario - St.Catharines.  Crazy-happy

childhood, she always has had a vivid imagination and loads of energy.


youngest of six -- four older brothers, and a sister --  taught her

at a young age to be competitive in all aspects of life.


sixteen, she began competing in athletics (track and field) and before she

turned seventeen, she was representing Canada in high jump.  She continued

to compete, breaking Canada's JR High Jump record (1.92m - 6' 3 1/2" for

those metric-ly challenged).  She attented University of Toronto, and

Kansas State University - winning CIAU's and becoming All-American 6x - NCAA

Indoors Runner Up + more.


you're not interested in her athletic career - unless of course you're curious

to know she stands 1.70m (5'7") and has jumped 20cm over her head on more

than one occassion. She's represented Canada at the World Championships, World

Jrs., won Francophone Games, and loved every minute of every competition. 

From the grueling workouts, the crazy weights she lifted on her back, the days

she thought her lungs were going to spit out of her mouth for lack of oxygen,

the travelling around the world and the opportunity to read - her favourite

past time.


continued with her husband (a distance runner from Liverpool, UK, who she met

at KSU) and then their first, then second and finally third child.  Their

house became full of more imagination and stories.


and her husband run an online business, dealing in antiques and collectables -

particularly jewelry and porcelain (one of the business' website: ).


her father passed away in 2009, from a six-year battle with cancer (which she

still believes he won the fight against), she began to write again.  A

passion she'd loved for years, but realized life was too short to keep putting

it off.


first book, Rae of Hope - from the Chronicles of Kerrigan - will be available

October 2011 by kNight Romance Publishing.

She is

currently represented by Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary Agency. Wanita is a

writer of Young Adult, Fantasy Fiction and where ever else her little muses

take her.
