WOW…it’s a new year…hard to believe 2012 is completely packed away and we are on the fresh new horizon of 2013! I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to start anew. I’m also excited because it’s time for WHAT TO READ WEDNESDAY!
As you know, there are times I like to shake things up and today is one of those “shaker” days. Instead of interviewing my guest today, I’m turning the floor over to her.
Christine, I’m really happy to be here with you. I want to whisk you and your readers into my vampire world today, but before I do, I want everyone to know I also write mystery and historical romance novels. Why so many genres? Because life isn’t just one genre!

FAST FORWARD NOW TO BOOK 3, THE BANISHED ONE: (18+) A sleepy little town has a secret: there’s a serial killer vampire on the loose.
Lucius, is still wreaking havoc on the sleepy town in Tower City, and since he’s supernatural he can’t be captured by normal police procedure.
A frustrated Lieutenant Welby refuses to believe that the one responsible for those dead bodies in his town, is a vampire; that defies logic. There’s got to be another explanation for those fang marks in the victims’ throats.
Welby remains a staunch disbeliever in vampires until a series of preternatural events and the coroner’s scientific evidence causes him to change his mind. Welby then follows the old town rumors right to Quentin, the father of all vampires and his gothic castle to enlist Quentin’s supernatural aid in capturing Lucius.
Will Quentin, the only one who can stop Lucius’ vampire tirades, help the Lieutenant or make him one of The Undeparted?
