Anna Rose is the author of The Sumaire Web series of books and short stories.
A lifelong avid reader, she wanted to read something different than the current type of sparkly emo eternal teenager vampire fiction. There is a lot of that kind of vampire fiction out there.
As she was unable was unable to find what she was looking for in existing vampire fiction, she started writing her own stuff. Her goal: Interesting, three dimensional adult characters for whom romance and/or rescue isn’t the aim of the story, and that vampires who don’t like what they are need not apply.
At this time, her published works include “Siofra”, “Fiach Fola” and “Féasta Fola”, the latter being a short story. All are available at both Amazon.com and Smashwords.com.
Anna shares a home with her daughter, two loyal dogs and two rather indifferent cats.
She is currently at work on the next novel in The Sumaire Web series, “Droch Fola”.
Siofra, a young woman from 1600’s era Ireland, is torn from her family and has to learn how to survive as a servant in the homes of nobles. Political and religious unrest lead to an expected encounter and Siofra ends up with a life very different than she could ever have imagined.
This is a vampire who ultimately not only likes what she has become, but goes so far as to embrace it. She’s looking out for herself and doesn’t need “saving” in order to be happy.
The Vampire Lestat, P.N. Elrod’s “Vampire Chronicles” and “Quincey Morris Vampire”, Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” series, which will come to Starz as a cable series in August 2014!
