There are times when I have wondered why I wasn't so interested in vampire stories as to write them myself. I did like Dracula, Bram Stoker's tale of the evil stalking Transylvania. Yeah, loved that absolute evil novel, so well captured in words by a talented writer. Gave me the creeps on certain nights while looking at bats flitting about in the dark moon-lit sky. But then it seems state side a certain Stephenie Meyer is sending 100 million buyers to bookstores with her novel "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner".
Makes a writer's mouth water. Mmmm.
