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.
Praise
"Things are never dull in Bon Temps!"
"[T]he series...has always drawn fans across genres, and this fast-paced and fun entry will be no exception."
From the Publisher
Annotation The question of power--who has it and who wants it--is always bubbling beneath the surface in Charlaine Harris's addictive novels starring the beguiling Sookie Stackhouse. Often Sookie gets caught in the middle of someone else's power play, and usually the alliances in Bon Temps, Louisiana, divide along human and non-human lines. So when the bar where Sookie works gets bombed, everyone suspects that responsibility lies with someone who is not ok with the fact that the owner, Sam Merlotte, is a shifter. Meanwhile, Sookie's love interest, the vampire Eric Northman, is plotting his own insurrection, against his master. Needless to say, things quickly get messy--but Harris's legions of fans wouldn't want it any other way!

Editors Note With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child" Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot-which is much more complicated than she knows...
