I like to write about things that are taboo in the society of the book, even if they are perfectly normal in our society today. I love reading books that challenge me to think about things in a new way, and I hope my writing might do the same for someone else.

It's my book, so of course I liked it!

I know it's not everyone's thing, a vampire book that's also literary, that's not a romance...

But, this is my image of what would happen if vampires really existed.
