Vampires, the Real Version
Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved vampires. Books, movies, daytime TV--it didn't matter. The creatures weren't frightening as much as fascinating, and Dion would have loved to meet one. She was sure they had to be real, and the media had added all the scary parts that couldn't be true: sleeping in coffins, turning into a bat, biting everyone in sight, burned up by sunlight. Weren't they more human than animal? Yes, they were like humans, but with a little superhero mixed in. And wouldn't it be fun to write it all down
After years of workshops and countless false starts, Dion hopped on a computer and began typing the story of her imagined vampires and their world. It was paranormal, but there had to be romance, right? She wrote. And edited. And rewrote. And edited and rewrote some more until the vampires were ready for primetime in the book world. She has a fascination for paranormal romance and hopes to one day have a second career as an author, but for now she'll keep her day job.
Dion lives in the Midwest and is at work on another manuscript.
