The Vampire Queen Q & A
Here we are with the Author Jodie Pierce talking with her about her latest book, The Vampire Queen, due out April 2011. Tell us what it’s about.
A young woman awakes to find out not only is she an important Countess but she is also the very first or 'Ancient One' as she is called by her subjects. Her memories of being a vampire or anyone are gone so she must relearn everything (from spells to flying) from the people around her, but can they be trusted? She also learns her main objective as the old Countess was purifying the vampire race and wishes to continue with that work. The 'Others', powerful and evil vampires, attempt to use her memory loss to their advantage. They had been trying to entice her to their side for centuries. Struggling to remember her past, battling the 'Others' and coping with her new life keep the Countess busy throughout this spellbinding and thrilling novel. Will she succeed in her goals or will the 'Others' win her over to their side this time around?
Q. Does the Queen feel protected/safe?
A. She’s unsure who she can trust at this point. Everybody is a danger to her.
Q. What does she remember from her past?
Q. Who are the ‘Others’?
A. They are a group of other vampires that are evil and would use her powers and skills for their benefit.
Q. How scary is it to wake up one day and not remember who you are?
A. Very scary, I’m sure. For the Queen, she doesn’t know who you can trust, who she was or who she is going to become. It’s all influenced by those around her. Imagine if the ‘Others’ had found her resting place and she had been woken by them how different things would have been.
Q. Is there a man or woman in her life?
A. Yes, there is someone special in her life but I’m not going to go into it right now. It’s more fun the let the readers speculate.
Q. Why is it important to her to purify her race?
A. She doesn’t want vampires around that are throw-aways. Vampires that have been made for unclean purposes-like for an army, without love, etc. This has always been very important to her.
Q. What is this “Bloodstone”?
A. It is a real gemstone. It inspires courage, purifies and regulates blood flow.
