About the Author
That little girl was me. I had a crush on Dracula, but never liked that he was hunted down and killed. I always thought he should have the woman he loved, after all, he went to so much trouble in getting her. If I had written the play, it would have gone 180 degrees the other way. I spent an inordinate amount of time digging up anything on vampires I could throughout high school and college—which probably earned me the Weirdo Award... but I didn't care.
Before Anne Rice, or Charlaine Harris, vampire fiction was under the overall Horror banner. I read Stephan King, Dean Koontz, and James Hubert. There was no such thing as “paranormal romance”, or “urban fantasy”. Not very long ago, certain authors (like those above and may more—women, all), were able to dash away the male-driven idea of making a vampire so... unwanted. Only a woman would put a vampire in bed with a woman. And it was about time. But my writing is more urban fantasy style, even though I manage to marry romance, horror, adventure, and mystery into my books.
