I met Ontario YA author, Alyxandra Harvey, at Toronto’s Fan Expo last fall where she spoke on a panel with Lesley Livingston and Evan Munday. Harvey is the bestselling author of the haunting and romantic vampire saga, The Drake Chronicles, as well as, Stolen Away, and Haunting Violet. The Drake Chronicles follows the dark and mysterious world of Violet Hill, as sixteen-year-old Solange Drake fights for her family's rightful claim to the throne.
I enjoyed Harvey’s take on vampire lore, her love for Victorian fantasy and history, and the fact that we seem to agree on good books and good book boyfriends, such as Jane Austen’s Darcy. I am thrilled that we have this exclusive guest post in which Harvey gives us a confession…her Vampire Confessions.
By, Alyxandra Harvey
I have a confession to make.
I write vampire novels.
I am armed with love and irreverent reverence for the genre. But because I love it, I like to poke fun at it too. And I really enjoy finding new hidden tidbits of folklore and history to use, and layering it all together like a cake with frosting made of snark.
Now I want cake.
