Q&A With Thomas Locke: Have You Ever Owned a Wolfhound?

Have you ever owned a wolfhoundQ: Hyam’s canine companion is a young wolfhound. Have you ever owned a wolfhound or other breed of large dog?

Thomas Locke: I’ve had a lot of dogs, but never a wolfhound. For this story, I wanted to use a breed of dog that carried a sense of the impossible, yet was easy for readers to identify with.

Hyam also rides a warhorse – a destrier. The concept of a warhorse has become so antiquated that it doesn’t even exist in some dictionaries. But for centuries, the destrier was the Ferrari of horses. I was looking for that same sort of “feel” when I chose a wolfhound.
