Thank you to Dana for having me here today! It's October, so what better month to talk paranormal? I've always loved all things paranormal, even before they were called by that name. When I was growing up, I remember learning about Greek and Roman mythology. I would read those stories for hours, enchanted by the antics of the gods and goddesses, along with the other magical creatures. Looking back now, I'm guessing I must have had the sanitized version of those myths because those gods were very sexually active. Zeus alone with his conquests could take up an entire week of reading!
When I reread those myths as a college student, they were just as wonderful and as an adult I understood the fuller picture of what was going on in those stories. The sex, the intrigue, the manipulation...it was like a soap opera from ancient times! My professor in my Mythology class attempted to keep it all academic, but it was no use. We knew better. This was interesting stuff.
Fast forward years later and it's time for me to decide on my own mythology—where vampires originated. I had the entire world to choose from, but I went back to those Greek myths that had entertained me for years. I'd remembered hearing the god of the Underworld, Hades, had fathered one child, a daughter named Macaria. Many stories don't even mention her, but for me, I knew I had the mother of my vampires and the beginning of their history. She was a natural. Her father is the god of the Underworld and the dead, and she's the goddess of the blessed death.
Since that beginning, there's been a prequel (Vampire Dreams Revamped) and the first two books in the Sons of Navarus series, Blood Avenged and Blood Betrayed. Now the third book is here, Blood Spirit. For the Sons, the beginnings of the vampire world are starting to become important and the Greek myths that are intertwined with my vampire history will soon come to the forefront. It's all building up to a showdown between the Sons and the Archons, and that godly heritage of vampires is going to make a difference.
