I got this idea for a vampire story in the summer of 2017 and went rolling with it. Three years later, the book is out after adapting it from a screenplay of a short TV program, broadcast on Manhattan Neighborhood Network Lifestyle Channel 2, where I portray the character Ileana Vladislava. The book has a bit of dark humor and focuses on the life issues facing Myrna Ivester who finds what she wants out of life as a vampire.

The Lonely Vampire is as mesmerizing as Ileana's eyes. Starting with a witch hunt to wipe out vampires, before coming into the 21st century, this is a story with grudges, love, friendship, and a twenty-something just trying to find her way in life. Myrna isn't really sure where her life is going, and while she loves living with her best friend, she knows something is missing. Ileana has lived alone for so long, and Myrna may just be the cure for that. Dodging Claymor the werewolf and a nosey nei ...more

A unique novel that breaks the walls of Genre.

That is where you will find lonely vampire Ileana Vladislava living in a castle.

Though much of the story is on cruise control, driven by the forward momentum of Ileana escaping the loneliness in her

As a performer with a background in acting and dance, I consider myself a storyteller with a definite eye for details and the desire to entertain, crafting wide-ranging stories a notch more complex by raveling out clever plots with interesting characters.
