Fantasy Writing, Vampires, And A Dash Of Romance...
The title of this book is somewhat deceiving as the story is told from Michael Allen's perspective. Beginning with his normal young adult life in Chicago and taking the reader through his brutal transition to vampire, this novel continues into the present day where our hero leads a solitary life. Haunted and tortured by the memories surrounding the night he was bitten, Michael maintains a lonely existence, fighting against 'The Beast' and hating the very nature of what he is.

I know, I know. You've probably been wondering where we have been. Well, truth be told, your guess is as good as mine! Wandering around the corridors of reality and looking--in earnest--for the emergency exit. Real life has a way of derailing our engines and putting them on a completely different track.
During the spring, my kids happened. From sports to plays, the driving is endless. During the summer, my kids--again--happened. Though, in Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen. (Sorry about that, I had a moment.) In the fall....do we see the pattern here? Good. So, between the kids' activities and school, hubby's work, my work, still remodeling the house, and my newest occupation as college student, I have very little room on my plate for cookies. But damn-it, I like cookies. I would love to roll naked in cookies! Only metaphorically, I have no wish to explain those crumbs at the next gynie visit. That, ladies, is called thin…
