Author Info
Charlaine Harris
Charlaine Harris is that rare example of a novelist who owes a large portion of her fan base to television. Harris is a remarkably prolific writer who was first published in 1981, but her popularity increased exponentially in 2008 when HBO launched its series TRUE BLOOD, based on her series of mysteries starring a telepathic waitress named Sookie Stackhouse. Harris was born (in 1951) and raised in Tunica, Mississippi, a former cotton town which was later revitalized by casino river boats. She has lived in the south her whole life, in various states and cities, including attending Rhodes College in Memphis, where she saw several of her one-act plays produced. Following an unsuccessful first marriage, Harris was in a rut, bouncing between dead-end jobs, when she met the man who would become her second husband. As a wedding gift, he gave her an electric typewriter and told her to become a full-time writer, a magnanimous gesture which turned out to be a very fruitful decision. Harris had no problem getting her first novel published, and she has not looked back ever since, churning out an average of one book per year since 1981. She has helmed no less than three popular ongoing series--a set of classic whodunits starring a Georgia librarian named Aurora Teagarden; a series of darker mysteries taking place in Shakespeare, Arkansas, featuring a psychologically damaged cleaning lady named Lily Bard; and, of course, the enormously popular "Southern Vampire Mysteries," wherein Sookie Stackhouse negotiates a world inhabited by vampires, werewolves, changelings, and other creatures of the night. Harris lives in Arkansas with her husband and three children.
From the Publisher
Editors Note A collection of every short story featuring Sookie Stackhouse, the telepathic waitress heroine of the best-selling Southern Vampire novels, includes "Fairy Dust," "One Word Answer," and "Dracula Night."
Annotation In order to support the adventures of telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse, creator Charlaine Harris had to create an entire world. Technically it's Louisiana, but the rules are slightly different--Sookie cavorts with vampires, shape shifters, werewolves, and other preternatural beings, who live right along side everyone else. After nine outrageously successful books in Sookie's Southern Vampire series (and following on the heels of a popular television adaptation), Harris gives fans TOUCH OF DEAD, a complete collection of all the short stories written about Sookie's world. Most, but not all, feature the spunky heroine, and ravenous readers will also encounter exciting new details about the curious world of Bon Temps.
Editors Note 2 A collection of every short story featuring Sookie Stackhouse, the telepathic waitress heroine of the "Southern Vampire" novels, includes "Fairy Dust," "One Word Answer," and "Dracula Night."
