Goodreads asked Scott Burtness:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Scott Burtness It's hard to nail down what the "Ah ha!" moment was for Wisconsin Vamp, but I think it was the result of watching "Interview with a Vampire" again when I lived in Los Angeles. Claudia got turned and her hair was immediately perfect. That bugged me, so I started thinking about the non-glamorous vampires, the sad sack vampires, the vamps that can't match their socks, and decided to write about Herb.
