Welcome to Mutt or Meow Monday!
Mutt or Meow Monday is where we interview the author’s animal friends instead of interviewing the author. Let’s see what the animals have to say!
It’s great to have you here today.
Please introduce yourself.
Hey there. I’m Miss Wiggly. It’s not my actual given name, but it’s a nickname that has stuck. Every non-human in the house has at least one nickname. The humans have nicknames too, but we don’t tell them what they are. Wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings since they’re in charge of the food bin. What breed am I? Good question. I’m part Bassett, that’s for sure. Other than that, your guess is as good as mine.
I like several of Kate’s books, mostly because the characters in them are as lazy as I am. They’re always in bed.
Do you ever interrupt Kate for attention when she’s trying to write? Does she stop and give you attention, brush you off, or bribe you with treats?
Food is my thing. I don’t mind when she gives me other attention, like hugs and belly rubs, but usually that just interrupts my nap time. When I’m hungry, I’ll howl to get her attention. She doesn’t like that when she’s in the middle of a scene. In general she and the other humans in the house are great about feeding us on time. Dinner is usually at five, so I start howling around three, just to make sure they don’t forget.
Has Kate ever based one of her characters on you? Which one?
Oh sure. I was the inspiration for one of the dogs in The Hunky Handyman.
What’s the worst part about living with an author?
Sometimes around the holidays, she makes me wear these stupid antlers.
Chicken, bacon or cheese? Yes!!!
Butt sniffin’, leg humpin’, fluffy toys? Are you kidding? That stuff interrupts my nap time.
I know that being an author, Kate would like me to plug one of her books, so here goes. Her latest Ellora’s Cave release features one of my ancestors. Isn’t it a nice improvement how we’ve gone from feral wolf to beguiling Basset?
Erotic Viking Romance

After the king sends Grim to rescue his daughter and claim Stein's land, the passion between the couple finally ignites. In the end, Grim's mistrust of all women could destroy their one true chance for happiness.
Always a fan of romance and the paranormal, Kate Hill started writing over twenty years ago for pleasure. Her first story, a short erotic vampire tale, was accepted for publication in 1996. Since then she has sold over one hundred short stories, novellas and novels.
Kate's stories, The Chieftain's Bride and Vampire Master, have won The Romance Studio's CAPA and in 2002 her vampire novel, The Immaculate, was nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award.
When she's not working on her books, Kate enjoys reading, working out and spending time with her family and pets.
