Charlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over thirty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Charlaine lives in Texas now, and all of her children and grandchildren are within easy driving distance.

Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was writing poetry and plays. After holding down some low-level jobs, her husband Hal gave her the opportunity to stay home and write. The resulting two stand-alones were published by Houghton Mifflin.

Adrián Lamo I'm just here to register my vexation that Dead Until Dark didn't make the Top-10 Paranormal Romances list. Since I *do* regularly make Top-10 Hacker lists, let me know if you need a horse's head delivered to the Goodreads HQ.

... what, I can't specialize in more than one thing? You'd be amazed at what FedEx Custom Critical will ship.
