When my muse insisted on taking the paranormal route, I knew instinctively that the stories would include vampires. But which vampires and why?
If you could save someone, who would it be and why?
Well, the obvious choice is loved ones. But then, who next? So I went looking for important characters in history that would add something to this Earth if they were able to live forever. Some will be far less deserving of this honor, of course, because they create that all important story conflicts that keep the novels racing along.
It was an interesting journey and brought in some amazing characters from history, some altruistic, some not so much. Like Joan of Arc, (the) Anastasia, Dracula, Dr. Jonas Salk, Queen Isis, and Pharaoh kings.
Why do you choose the characters you do or do they choose you?
