Kelly Lavoie asked Lynsay Sands:

I've read other vampire books but the Argeneau series is very unique with how they came to be. How did you come up with the idea of their origins?

Lynsay Sands That was just necessity, Kelly. As I mentioned in another answer, I have trouble believing in the original basis of vampires, the dead soulless ones, so had to go looking for a logical, scientific based origin for them. It was a combination of an old movie and an article I read on what they are doing with nanos that gave me the basis for my Argeneaus. And then, to allow for them to be older and not a bunch of twenty or fifty year old vamps, I had to use Atlantis.
