FROM THE AUTHOR
My yearning for a good scare I believe is a controlled distraction for the real horrors that prowl our realities; those of war, rape, and poverty. By choosing my terror, I have some say in allowing how I will allow it into my consciousness. Controlling the shape, it will take and at least in knowing it will end, thereby giving me some sense of power.
My deep love of Bram Stoker's Dracula goes back into my childhood. I have loved the many faces and retellings of the story, and this is my throwing my own hat into that ring.
the questions I have tried to answer for myself are; What would it be like to be loved by someone who had lived so long and actually had some powers which hither to only belonged to God? How far would I go as a mother to protect my child created from such a man, being, a God?
The second book is all about is about Quincey awakening to who his is and what to his legacy.
