Kathleen McFall is the co-author, with Clark Hays, of the award-winning, four-book series The Cowboy and the Vampire Collection. The first book in the series, A Very Unusual Romance, was published in 1999, making it one of the earliest books that had, at its core, a reimagining of the gothic legend for contemporary audiences. Called everything from hilariously existential to authentically western, the books have been honored as annual "best books" by Kirkus Reviews, IndieReader, and Independent Publisher.

More recently, also with Clark Hays, she is the author of the provocative "what-if" historical fiction series that recasts the lives of notorious outlaw lovers Bonnie and Clyde as reluctant defenders of the working classic the 1930s. The t

The first is from the novel Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, but its not Anna and Vronsky, as one might expect. Rather, the eventual relationship of Kitty and Levin, the secondary characters has always cast on me a spell of warmth and calm. Their romance is a slow burn and a counterpoint to the ricocheting consuming passion of the book's namesake. But by the time Kitty and Levin, two strong personalities, finally come around to each other, you can sense the satisfying depth and certainty of their bond. They are happily in it for the long haul. The second couple is Spenser and Susan Silverman from Robert Parker's Spenser mystery series, which is about as far as one can travel from Tolstoy — in style, geographic setting and era. But the attributes of the relationships are similar. Spenser and Susan are individually strong and happy on their own, but they find themselves better together. They bestow joy, kindness and laughter on each other, and even during a painful lapse in their relationship, the depth of their bond remains profound. The writing of Parker and Tolstoy are world's apart of course but each created a compelling fictional couple that captured me in its internal reality. -Kathleen (less)
