It’s an episode you can sink your teeth into. Vampire expert and author Adrienne Monson talks with host Desireé Duffy about her vampire series, The Blood Inheritance Trilogy. 

Vampires: one of the most beloved topics in all of genre fiction. They cross-over from horror to supernatural to thrillers to comedy and to paranormal romance, and more. Ever since Stoker introduced us to Dracula many years ago, we have been enthralled with this undead entity.  

The question is, why do we find vampires so fascinating? Is it because they terrify us as much as they intrigue us? Is it because they promise immortality, but at a twisted price? Maybe it is because they have amazing powers, but are also vulnerable  

Listen as Adrienne Monson, the “vampire expert” according to MSN, gives her thoughts. She is not only highly regarded for her vampire novels in The Blood Inheritance Trilogy, but as a writer of compelling historical romance, retold fairy tales, dystopian, and many other genre mashups 

Monson is accomplished in many other areas as well. She mentors aspiring authors, directs and participates in writing workshops, and judges several different writing contests. Find out more in this episode of the Books That Make You Show.
