Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
Written in Red, like the books which follow it, are set in a universe where man is not the dominant predator. Our heroine, in this first one, makes friends with Mr. Erebus Sanguinati - a very powerful vampire.
So I'm using it for Vampires. It would also work for Werewolves, Supernatural, or Monsters.
