Elaine Bergstrom is a Milwaukee-based novelist whose writing melds vampire, romance, mystery and, always, suspense.

Her first published piece of fiction was her first novel, Shattered Glass (1989). It introduced the character of the immortal Stephen Austra and artist Helen Wells, a victim of polio, along with Stephen's family of vampires who are “born not created and have an abhorrance for coffins, particulary their own.” The novel was a critical success, a consistent favorite with readers of adult-oriented vampire fiction.

Elaine Bergstrom Sorry, I am new to this. It was supposed to be linked to my shelf.


Elaine Bergstrom What I have decided on my list is to just add books that have touched me in a special way and this is one of them. A brilliant book that is far beyond Lamb's novel She's Come Undone. Sadly it is also far far better than the next, The Hour I First Believed. Here, a man researches his recent origins, trying to find from the secrets of his family his own fears about reaching out to others. Sounds boring, maybe, but with a schizophrenic brother and a grandfather who is an egotistical piece of work, it is filled with humor and insight. My favorite book in years!
