Read full description of the books A Very Vampire Christmas:A Very Vampire Christmas is a (very) short story by popular American author Charlaine Harris. Vampires Dahlia and Taffy are Christmas shopping at the Rhodes Marketplace Mall. Dahlia finds the whole Christmas thing annoying, but the firefighter crew of Engine 34 did save her life during the bombing of the Pyramid of Gizeh hotel the year before, and she wanted to show her appreciation. But then, just as their friend Matsudo Katamori arrives, they become aware of a potentially dangerous situation.
Their new sheriff, Joaquin has issued orders for his nest vampires to remain inconspicuous in situations such as these, but Dahlia can’t stand by and see human children suffering. And Taffy and Katamori can’t let Dahlia handle this alone. This is billed as Sookie Stackhouse 10.1, but is better described as a story set in the Sookieverse, as Sookie herself never makes an appearance. After this tale, you’ll see Christmas elves in a whole new light…. Shopping, sex and blood and gore.
Read information about the authorCharlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck. The duck stays outside.
Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was writing poetry and plays. After holding down some low-level jobs, she had the opportunity to stay home and write, and the resulting two stand-alones were published by Houghton Mifflin. After a child-producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of writing mystery series, and soon had her own traditional books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden. Her first Teagarden, Real Murders, garnered an Agatha nomination.
Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the result was the much darker Lily Bard series. The books, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas, feature a heroine who has survived a terrible attack and is learning to live with its consequences.
When Charlaine began to realize that neither of those series was ever going to set the literary world on fire, she regrouped and decided to write the book she’d always wanted to write. Not a traditional mystery, nor yet pure science fiction or romance, Dead Until Dark broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who just enjoy a good adventure. Each subsequent book about Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic Louisiana barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, has drawn more readers. The Southern Vampire books are published in Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Germany, Thailand, Spain, France, and Russia.
In addition to Sookie, Charlaine has another heroine with a strange ability. Harper Connelly, lightning-struck and strange, can find corpses… and that’s how she makes her living.
In addition to her work as a writer, Charlaine is the past senior warden of St. James Episcopal Church, a board member of Mystery Writers of America, a past board member of Sisters in Crime, a member of the American Crime Writers League, and past president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. She spends her "spare" time reading, watching her daughter play sports, traveling, and going to the movies.
