NICOLE EIGENER

(she/they/iel)

I am the author of Beguiled by Night: A Vampire Tale and Citizens of Shadow: Beguiled by Night Book Two, in which Vauquelin’s story continues. I am also co-author, with Beverley Lee, of Crimson is the Night: A Vampire Novelette and the trilogy A Conclave of Crimson (Book 1 now available), featuring a meeting of characters from Beverley’s Gabriel Davenport series and my Beguiled by Night series.

I’m a lifelong student of French history and the macabre. My love for haemovores became a beautiful marriage to my obsession with French culture, specifically of the seventeenth-century, which features prominently in my work. I currently live and write in Southern California.

My Book WORLD

Vampires will always be chosen literary vehicle for explaining marginalised individuals. They exist betwixt the shadowy fringes of attraction and revulsion. In my vampire world, where they retain a shred of humanity but are shunned, they must find a way to exist without drawing attention to themselves. But at what cost?

How many people navigate their existences outside of their own realities? How many wish they could be someone they are unable to be, knowing they will die without ever being their truest selves? How many covet a life other than the one they have been given, their hearts burdened by unreciprocated desires?
