Homeless and with nowhere to turn, Rebecca De Rosa finds a family of lost souls just like her—the vampires of Orlando. Reborn, she revels in her new lifestyle of ‘no rules’. Love whoever you want. Seek whatever high you wish. Live forever young. Every night’s an adventure—hunting down tourists, challenging local police, screaming to the world vampires really do exist! It’s Neverland and every dream Rebecca has comes true.
Until the first murder.
Someone else lurks in the shadows. Goths are found beheaded, with wooden stakes pounded into their chests. The hunters have become the hunted. As the bodies pile up, Rebecca and the Family are forced to ask who can you trust when the only person who believes you’re an actual vampire is a vampire killer?
Interview with the Author:
What initially got you interested in writing?
I had a wild imagination as a kid, always coming up with epic stories. Along with that came a subpar memory. So I realized pretty fast if I wanted to be able to tell these stories more than once, I better grab a pen. At first I used an Etch-a-Sketch but one sneezing fit showed me potential flaws with that plan.
How did you decide to make the move into being a published author?
I was burned out after twenty-five years of being a comic and working in theatre. I had written tons of skits, scripts, plays, routines. My wife suggested instead of pursuing my new focus, crocheting, I should channel my creativity towards writing novels. I didn’t have to travel anymore or deal with club owners named Chuckles. I could simply stay home and work from my desk. That sounded good to me. Plus in the ten years since I became an author, I finally finished crocheting a sock. Not plural. So my wife gave great advice.
What do you want readers to take away from reading your works?
Cool question. I’m not one of those guys who have a political agenda or want to change the world. There’s enough of that out there. I guess I go back to my comedy days. It’s not my job to educate you or preach from a podium. I’m there to entertain you. Same goes with my books. If you come away laughing and shocked and thrilled, if I helped you escape the daily grind and the horror of the 6:00 news for even an hour or so, then I did my job!
What do you find most rewarding about writing?
The grotesquely gigantic paychecks.
What do you find most challenging about writing?
Ever receiving a grotesquely gigantic paycheck.
What advice would you give to people want to enter the field?
Do it because it’s in your blood. I believe true writers do it because they don’t have a choice. It’s long, weird hours with often few rewards. You need patience and thick skin because no one is in a hurry to launch your career except you and most people will slam your work. Go in humble and learn from every mistake you make. Know it takes years to find your voice and hone your skills. Very few hit the NY Times Best Sellers list with their first book. So hold off on your mansion and yacht. Write because you love it. And you twitch when you aren’t writing.
What ways can readers connect with you?
I’m on the Facebook. My page is ‘Greg Hall- The Man Behind the FB Page’ @greglovesu. I also have the groovy Author Page through Amazon. Just type in ‘Gregory L Hall’. But the most direct way is through my psychic abilities. If you buy my book, place it on your forehead and fall asleep, it opens an astral chat room. Always a party going on going on. And I serve bagel bites.
