Why Vampires & Robots?

Being both a nerd and a girl in the 1980s was tough. There was a delicate balance between Sweet Valley High and Star Wars, Madonna and The Martian Chronicles, and Star Trek's Holodeck vs Jem and the Holograms. Whether I was sitting in bed, flashlight in hand, reading about spaceships or first dates, I remember thinking that I could not wait to be old enough to do either.
Well, fast forward a few decades and no, I haven't made it to space yet, but I've had enough first dates to know that Francine Pascal and her ilk lied to me about how awesome teenage romance is. But the future? The future I'm living in is pretty awesome. Which brings us to the title of this blog.
Three decades later, I'm still an awkward nerd girl, obsessed with, well duh, vampires and robots. But I'm owning it, awkwardness and all. In this future, I'm broadcasting my nerd ramblings from my backyard, using a magical five inch long box that I keep in my pocket. I'm the proud author of two books that can be read from the same magic box. And best of all, this future hasn't adopted the unflattering skin-tight jumpsuit yet! Though apparently, we haven't learned our lesson about skinny jeans, so we aren't out of the woods yet.
Future posts will likely include more fangirl musings on stuff that I love, book news, book extras and tidbits of information that I feel enhances the universe that I've created, as well as recommendations and shout-outs to other artists that I enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Nice to see you blogging again!

    Have you read anything by Alex Bledsoe? He writes a good vampire.

    Ray Bradburry was the greatest.

    1. I haven't, but I've heard good things so I will definitely add him to my long list of books to read. And thank you for the encouragement. I'm hoping I don't run out of interesting things to say this time around.
