I’m happy to welcoming my friend and fellow romance writer, Suz deMello. I meant Suz (or Sue, as I first knew her) many years ago when i first joined my local RWA chapter. Then I met up with her again at the Women’s Fiction Festival in Italy two years ago. Here’s a spotlight on her latest short story, Blood is Thicker…
Blood is Thicker… a short story
(previously Immortal Hunters)
Genre: Paranormal action-adventure.
A century-old vampire, Rama is used to shadows and loneliness.
She uses the name Hestia White and lives in a coastal town working as a private investigator. If some bad guys disappear on her shift, no one cares…until John van Helsing shows up. Bearing the name of the vamps’ greatest foe, he interferes in her case and in her life.
Friend, lover or enemy?
Rama is a vampire who was turned as an innocent, impoverished teenager, with no knowledge of the world beyond her desert village.
Knowing that as a young vampire she could not stay there—nourishing herself would endanger her family and friends—she had to venture forth and make a life for herself.
After many adventures (not detailed in the short story) she has become a private investigator in a California coastal town, where she uses her kick-ass abilities and smarts honed from a century of survival to catch and kill bad guys.
