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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another entertaining mystery July 9 2009
By Sam TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Living Dead In Dallas by Charlaine Harris is the second of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. The novels are entertaining and unpredictable. There are so many different events that take place to make the story more exciting.

Sookie finds Lafayette is dead in Detective Andy Bellefleur's car. Andy is being suspected by the townspeople, but who murdered Lafayette? And why? Andy asks Sookie to look into the minds of people to discover the culprit, but telepathy is not as easy at it sounds.

Not only that, Eric takes up Sookie on her offer of helping out whenever her assistance is needed, as long as the humans that were involved would not be killed. Sookie is to go to Dallas with Bill to talk to Stan, whose vampire brother, Farrell, has been abducted. The Fellowship of the Sun, a religious anti-vampire group, is suspected. Will Sookie be able to provide her assistance and recover Farrell alive?

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?

By Buggy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was another super entertaining read; combining fantasy, action, romance and mystery that you'll find difficult to put down. With book #2 we return to small town Louisiana and telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse, still slinging beers for Sam and spending time with her boyfriend, Bill the vampire. Their relationship continues to progress here with anger and jealousies surfacing, and although for the most part Bill is still sweet to Sookie his undisputed predator tendencies also make an appearance.

It doesn't take long for Sookie's adventures start up again when a co-worker with ties to a sex club is murdered. (This sub plot then takes a back seat returning later in the book) Soon after Sookie gets attacked by a mystical female creature which requires the assistance of Eric (and others) to suck the poison from her body. Eric then `loans' Sookie out to the Dallas Vampires to aid in the search for a missing vamp. Sookie feels obligated to comply, taking Bill along as her bodyguard. (He flies as cargo in a coffin) And that's when things get really crazy. With a new nest of vampires to deal with as well as assorted religious fanatics and several aggressive werewolves Dallas isn't going to be any vacation. Sexy and cheeky Eric makes a welcome appearance here and I really enjoyed getting to know him better. I'm very curious to see how this immerging love triangle plays out.

Despite the progression of Sookie into the supernatural world, which at times made her feel like a clumsy super hero I still found her relatable enough that I was able to discover everything right along with her. Sookie does get injured a lot in this book however and I kept wondering why she refused to take Vampire blood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the Series!
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.
