The Wolfman: Shaun Ellis

When Jodi Picoult was writing “Lone Wolf” she interviewed a man, Shaun Ellis, who actually lived with a pack of wild wolves in Canada.  He has a show on Animal Planet called Living with the Wolfman.

Here’s a trailer for a National Geographic show that aired a few years back showing him growling, snarling and feeding on an animal carcass … so what’s your take on him?  Crazy dude or genius?  Either way, you can’t argue that it’s an innovative research technique.

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.
