About Sandrine Genier
THE VAMPIRE is my first full length book to be published. I began writing this story in the 1980's but was not able to achieve exactly what I wanted, and what I felt the book needed to be, not until eight years ago. I never intended this to be more than a single volume, and was not especially interested in publishing what is primarily a private enjoyment, but the characters had other ideas. I continued to write as long as they told me details and events of their lives. Initially, I wrote this book, or books, as there are soon to be three published, still intended for myself only, because I needed to write the kind of story I want to read, and was not finding that among current vampire themed books. And while I still write primarily for myself, I have been surprised when others have shared their enjoyment of the story as well, and I appreciate Mr. Augere allowing me to tell that story.
Jason is the vehicle by which the reader comes to know the Vampire. It is through his interactions that we are led to other characters and learn through those often complex entanglements the difficulties and sometimes small joys that can come with the involvement of humans in the life of a being like Augere. I wanted a personal story, a micro-view of the challenges faced as human characters, with faults of their own, choose to struggle, for their own personal reasons, to establish and maintain a relationship with a charming but deadly creature unlike anything they have ever known.
