In the Beginning

Charlaine Harris has been writing for the last 3 decades. In the beginning she wrote poetry, ghostly stories, and then later on, mysteries. She decided to write the Sookie Stackhouse books mainly because she wanted to go in a new direction and wanted to make sure the publishing house would continue to support her books. Her thinking:

“It would be fun to write about a very down-home young woman who was dating a vampire.”

Her 11th book in this series, Dead Reckoning, which was released in May, seems to still be creating waves in the fan base and is still hugely popular.

Sookie Sunday

The HBO True Blood series is largely based on the books by Charlaine Harris mixed with Alan Ball‘s genius mind. The new season of True Blood started just over a week ago on June 26, and it has fans on fire with enthusiasm for this season!

  • Mysterious Galaxy is my favorite Independent bookstore in San Diego (or anywhere!), and they do an amazing job bringing in the authors to meet their fans in our city!  Ms. Harris is practically a frequent vositor to MG!

    • Hi Lynda!  Thanks for commenting.  I am ashamed to admit I had not heard of the bookstore, and regret very much having missed her last visit, as it is only 10 minutes away from me!  Grrr!  I’ll definitely keep an eye out for her next book tour.  Maybe I’ll see you there!  🙂
