About the Author

Charlaine Harris, who has been writing mysteries for over twenty years, is a native of Mississippi. Born and raised in the Delta, she began training for her career as soon as she could hold a pencil. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and (later) teenage angst, she began writing plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, and graduated to books a few years later.

After publishing two stand-alone mysteries, Harris decided to establish a series. She began the lighthearted Aurora Teagarden books with Real Murders, which garnered an Agatha nomination. Harris's protagonist, a diminutive Georgia librarian whose life never turns out quite the way she planned, kept Harris busy for several books, but finally Harris (and Aurora) grew restless.

The result of this restlessness was the much edgier Shakespeare series--set not in England, but in rural Arkansas. The heroine of the Shakespeare books is Lily Bard, a tough and taciturn woman whose life has been permanently reshaped by a terrible crime and its consequences. In Shakespeare's Landlord, the first in the series, Lily is caught at a moment when the shell she's built around herself is just beginning to crack, and the books capture Lily's emotional re-entry into the world, while also being sound mysteries.

Harris's latest venture is a series about a telepathic barmaid in southern Louisiana. The first book in the series, Dead Until Dark, won the Anthony for best paperback mystery of 2001. Each book about Sookie Stackhouse (and her dealings with vampires and werewolves and other creatures of the night) has gathered more readers to enjoy the books' unique blend of mystery, humor, romance, and the supernatural. The Sookie books are also being read in Japan, Spain, Greece, and Great Britain.

In addition to her work as a writer, Harris is married and the mother to three children. A former weight lifter and karate student, she is an avid reader and cinemaphile. She is a member of the vestry of St. James Episcopal Church.

Harris is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the American Crime Writers League. She is a member of the board of Sisters in Crime, and alternates with Joan Hess as president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the second in the Southern Vampire series and continues the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic Southern waitress, and Bill, her vampire boyfriend.
Although I really enjoyed Dead Until Dark, I thought that Living Dead in Dallas was better. It had a faster pace and more subplots to keep me interested. I recommend reading the first book, though, because you will appreciate the characters more. And speaking of characters - every character in Charlaine Harris' books is very memorable and fun to get to know. Sookie is just a scream and readers will fall in love with Bill as he struggles to balance between being a vampire and being human. I love the main characters, but I also want to know more about the supporting characters - the blond-Adonis vampire Eric, the geeky head vampire Stan, the insane maenad, and many, many more. All of Harris' characters are fun to get to know and I hope that I will see more of them in the next book.
Charlaine Harris also has some very interesting vampire ideas that make them seem more real. She adds little random touches throughout the novel that answer questions that you never really knew that you had. For example, some vampires can fly, but how do the rest of them get around? They fly Anubis air, of course. The airline will transport vampires in their coffins during the day and is heavily guarded so that they cannot be attacked. Once you have reached your destination, the discerning vampire will immediately seek out the finest in accomodations. In Dallas, The Silent Shore is a vampire-friendly hotel that even offers room service delivery of "snacks" in whatever blood type you prefer.
If you have not done yourself the favor of reading Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire books, I recommend that you go to your nearest bookstore and buy them now (and be prepared to stay up late to finish them).

4.0 out of 5 stars MORE! MORE! MORE! Aug. 3 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am thrilled at having found this series! I recommend it to anyone who enjoys books by Tanya Huff, L.K. Hamilton, Susan Sizemore and Donna Boyd!
I won't go into the storyline as you can read all about it in the "official" book review section.What I will say is that this book has everything needed for a fun, entertaining, fast read! I will venture to call it "Anita-Lite." Yes, there are vampires, shapeshifters and murders (oh my!), but it is all done without going way overboard on the violence and gore.The sex scenes are yummy without being tacky and the dialogue is a treat!
The only reason I didn't give it 5 starts...it ended far too soon!
Ms.Harris, I want MORE...please?

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 out of 5, better than the first! July 13 2004
By Mouser
Format:Mass Market Paperback
(...)I thought Ms. Harris had lots of potential. In this book I really feel she's living up to it!
It's great. Sookie gets loaned out to Dallas vamps to find a member of a vampire nest that's gone missing. She goes with her boyfriend dull vamp Bill and Bill's boss Eric who's incognito.
She uses her telepathy to find out the missing vamp has been taken by a cult out to kill all vampires.
She and a fellow human-in-love-with-a-vamp try to spring him and it gets messy. They meet a suicidal pedophilic vampire, a huge shapeshifter community, and honest-to-goodness werewolves.
It's really similar to Anita Blake, minus the Dirty Harry atitude. In this novel Sookie is so much more real than the first story. Sadly, Bill is once again dull (what does she see in him? he so irritates me) and he's ALWAYS missing when there's action going on. Once again as I read this I have to wonder what makes vamps better lovers than humans? We get no real explanation at it, so be ready to suspend your disbelief.
This one made me laugh and had some sad parts. Not nearly as erotic as the first, but we see Sookie growing more to understand her own sexuality by bits and pieces.
I think this is a big improvement over the first and it shows not only Sookie growing but Ms. Harris as well. I've read the next one and the series just gets better with every book.
I'm recommending this to all my friends and I would to anybody who's ever enjoyed a vampire book or movie in their life. It's great!

4.0 out of 5 stars A well done follow-up June 24 2004
By N. Nutt
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not only does Charlaine Harris give another good mystery yarn with her sequel but she effortlessly increases your knowledge of the main characters introduced in 'Dead Until Dark' and introduces additional characters in the periphery that you just know are going to show up again. The characterizations are deepened and expanded upon while the 2, or is it 3, mystery subplots are resolved.
As so often happens, when things start happening in your life events can get complicated as Sookie, our heroine, finds out. Trying to come to terms with her vampire boyfriend, Bill, isn't helped by other supernatural beings standing in line to show her their appreciation also. And associating with supernatural beings, that have a hierarchy akin to the mob, can drag you right into the middle of touchy political agendas when you least expect it. Friends in unexpected places and her own determination had seen Sookie through her first adventure, will the same pattern hold for her deep in the heart of Texas?
This is a fast, fun read, really well done escapist literature. Good characters, fast action and a plot line that curves back on itself just as you think you're getting lost. Pick this one up.

An entertaining series that is true down-to-earth small town Southern US to the core. A flawed heroine with a heart of gold, and good southern manners.
