In the last episode, I began an enticing series of interviews recorded at Necon 2012.

In this episode I interview Guest of Honor Heather Graham, New York Times bestselling author of over 150 novels and novellas. Graham has written suspense, ghost, paranormal romance, romantic suspense, historical romance, and more, sometimes writing under her married name, Heather Graham Pozzessere, or under the pen name Shannon Drake.

Starting with Beneath a Blood Red Moon in October 1999, Heather wrote a vampire series that spanned seven books, concluding in September 2006 with Kiss of Darkness.

As I listen to my Necon interviews, especially this one, I wish that I had let the interview run longer. I neglected to ask her about her Vampire Hunter series, a three-book series starting with Night of the Wolves in 2009 and concluding with Bride of the Night in 2011.

Even without discussing books, it would have made for a great interview -- she's such a fascinating person and pleasure to talk to. Mindful of the demands on her as a guest of honor, though, I didn't want to be greedy with her time. Next time I'll be greedy.

You can find out more about Heather and her books at www.theoriginalheathergraham.com or www.eHeatherGraham.com.

Postscript:   Beneath a Blood Red Moon, the first in the vampire series, will be re-released September 4th, 2012. The audio version will be released September 25th.
