VAMPIRES

When all the other girls my age were playing with Barbie and dreaming about boys, I was watching vampire movies and begging my older siblings to tell me more about vampires.

In high school everyone was so focused on fitting in, while I was thinking of how to become a vampire. At the age of 16 I felt like my whole world came crashing down when I discovered that vampires did not really exist. Though, my love for all things vampire did not die with my search to become one of the un-dead. No, instead my love for vampires and almost all things supernatural survived and a few years later I wrote my first paranormal romance novel.

I still love reading vampire novels and watching vampire movies to this day, though I have heard many people say the paranormal romance market is over saturated with vampire books. I on the other hand believe I can never get enough.

  1. Thanks to Joss Whedon, I'm a fan of certain vampires. Just not the sparkily kind.

  2. Heh. This reminds me of a song I caught my daughter singing to herself one time...

    "I wish we could come back to Earth after we die, but we can't because we would be undead I think, but good undead."

    She was 6, I think.

  3. Vampire novels are extremely popular, but there always seems to be room for more.

    I enjoyed Buffy, but didn't really like the Twilight movies. I never read the books.
