VIDEOS: Charlaine Harris Talks In-Depth About Dead in the Family

March 13, 2010 by  

Charlaine Harris is a real life steel magnolia. She is always so polite and charming, with just a hint of “don’t mess with me” underneath (anonymous Amazon book reviewers be warned!).

This interview was recorded in Poland where Charlaine was promoting the upcoming release of the 10th Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead in the Family (DITF).

In the interview Charlaine discusses her work, in particular DITF and the True Blood series on HBO. The interview contains some book spoilers – so don’t watch the videos if you don’t want to know. I won’t reveal them here. Charlaine also answers questions from her fans, including some tips for aspiring writers.

Just like all True Blood fans, Charlaine is eagerly looking forward to Season 3 of True Blood and is thrilled at the casting of Joe Manganiello as Alcide Herveaux, describing Joe as much more handsome than the Alcide she imagined in her head.

Charlaine is currently writing the 11th Sookie novel, some short stories and the Sookie Companion which is due out next February.

And as for Bill and Sookie getting back together? Charlaine tells us we’ll just have to wait and see…

Enjoy the videos!
