    None of this was true! People didn’t grow claws; their eyes didn’t glow. And Kate wouldn’t shoot me: she loved me.’

     A smart and funny YA page-turner about werewolves, vampires, and loving the monster inside you.

    Evie Wilder just found out she's a werewolf. Now her mom's gone missing, she has to go into hiding, and there's not a single helpful vampire slayer to be found. With the help of Kevin, the dorky-hot manager of the guesthouse where she and her sister lie low, Evie starts to harness her wolfish side. But there's something weird about Kevin ...

    Meanwhile, animal attacks are increasing, local teens are going missing, and Evie is about to find herself at the centre of a supernatural showdown.

    “FREAKING AMAZING! The perfect story to fill that Buffy-shaped hole in your soul.” – Sinéad O’Hart, author of Skyborn

    “An absolute riot – I loved it.” – Kat Ellis, author of Wicked Little Deeds

    “Brilliant and completely refreshing, and simply so much fun.” – Gina Blaxill, author of You Can Trust Me

    “The writing is absolutely joyful. I loved every page!” – Naomi Gibson, author of Every Line of You

    “A new take on the world of werewolves that’s fresh, fast-paced and funny. Adventure, witty dialogue and romance shot through with a delicious tingle of real horror – great fun!” – Andreina Cordani, author of Dead Lucky

    “Witty, funny, edgy, and smart.” – Alison Weatherby, author of The Secrets Act

    “Full of fangs and fun! Big Bad Me is a rip-roaring adventure featuring a memorable cast of badass yet beautifully vulnerable characters. Sharp and witty, this is not a novel you’ll want to miss!” – Ann Sei Lin, author of Rebel Skies  

    "Written with confidence, panache and oodles of humour, this book is a must for Buffy fans young and old. Great fun." – The Irish Independent

    "There's blood and guts and vomiting, and yet there's also a strange wholesomeness about this "little monster
    family" ... endearing and action-packed." – Claire Hennessy, The Irish Times

    “This was honestly just the perfect novel to fill that quippy paranormal creature hole in my heart … You really don’t want to miss this!” – Han Reads Plots

    “I seriously love this … an incredibly good debut novel.” – Emily Sarah Art

    “A werewolf fantasy that doesn’t hold back on bite.” – The Business Post

    "Fans of gore with a humorous twist will revel in this book, heavily laced as it is with all manner of slaughtering and mayhem, topped off with quips and asides ... O’Loughlin consistently delivers laugh out loud lines, juxtaposing them with the most bloodthirsty passages to great effect." – Books for Keeps

    We are pleased to share an extract from Big Bad Me.

    Aislinn O'Loughlin grew up in Dublin on a diet of fairy tales and horror stories – often at the same time (her biggest fear was the Big Bad Wolf escaping his story to eat her).

    After writing several books in her teens, Aislinn worked as a storyteller and creative-writing teacher before moving to Toronto, where she sometimes took her kids to daycare in a sled (yes, really)! These days, she lives in Waterford with her scientist husband, three brilliant children and two evil genius cats. The Big Bad Wolf is welcome any time.
