About the author

I am a lifelong student of French history and the macabre. My fascination with vampires dates back to the age of eight, when I saw ‘Salem’s Lot on television. Many years later, my love for haemovores became a beautiful marriage with my obsession with French history and culture, specifically of the seventeenth-century.

Beguiled by Night is my first published novel, although I have been writing since childhood. Growing up, the words of Toni Morrison were always bubbling beneath my dark surfaces: “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” And so I did. I hope you love Vauquelin and my French vampire world as much as I do.

I live in Southern California with my husband and two Boston Terriers.
