More About the Author

Charlaine Harris was born in Tunica, Mississippi, and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area in the middle of a cotton field. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and, later, teenage angst, she wrote plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee and started writing novels a few years later.

After publishing two stand-alone mysteries, Harris launched a light-hearted mystery series 'starring' Georgia librarian Aurora Teagarden. The first of the eight books, Real Murders, was shortlisted for Best Novel in the 1990 Agatha Awards. In 1996, she released the first of the much darker Shakespeare mysteries, featuring the amateur sleuth Lily Bard, a karate student who makes her living cleaning houses.

Charlaine Harris then wrote the first of her Southern vampire mysteries starring Sookie Stackhouse, the quirky, telepathic waitress who works in a bar in the fictional Northern Louisiana town of Bon Temps. Dead Until Dark won the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Mystery. It also won Harris a whole new fan club of devoted readers and pushed her into the bestseller lists. The Sookie Stackhouse series, in which Sookie has to deal with vampires, werecreatures and other supernatural folk - not to mention her own complicated love life - was also instrumental in creating the urban fantasy genre.

Sookie Stackhouse also enchanted Alan Ball, creator of the smash TV show Six Feet Under, who took an option and wrote and directed the pilot episode for True Blood himself. It was an instant hit when it premiered in the US, and that success was repeated when it was first aired in Britain last year. The second season of TRUE BLOOD will start this spring.

Harris's newest series features Harper Connelly, a young woman who, after being struck by lightning, finds herself able to locate the bodies of the dead and to determine the cause of their death. There are four Harper titles (Grave Sight, Grave Surprise, An Ice Cold Grave and Grave Secret).

Charlaine 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. She is married, the mother of three, and lives in a small town in Southern Arkansas. When she is not writing her own books, she reads omnivorously!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mismatched "short" stories 29 Sep 2013
By Barbara Van Egeren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I received my book,I was thrilled it was a nice, fat 460+ pages. I settled in and read Charlaine Harris' Dancers in the Dark. I don't know how she does it, it's another paranormal vampire and human story, and it's still fresh and entertaining. The only problem with it was it was only 130 pages. I'd love to read more about Rue Le May. The second story is really a book at over 330 pages. It is mismatched to the first story in several factors. As another reviewer said, the Harris name and story is the hook to buy this book. The Devil's Footprints is not a paranormal story. It's more of a b-rated movie complete with heros and heroines who repeatedly go into attics and basements alone and get knocked in the head. The dialog gets bogged down and could use a good edit. It's hard in a number of pages to determine who is speaking. This is supposed to be the start of "The Graveyard Queen" series? Catchy title, but I don't know how either the title or the series would be warranted. I enjoyed the locations, and was glad to have main characters with realistic relationship issues, mental illness and prescription drug problems, but the book is either too long, or it is too short, which leaves it sort of in between...

3.0 out of 5 stars BIG DISAPOINTMENT!!! 7 Oct 2013
By Krys Jeffrey-Wagner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was touted as the possible next successor to the "Sookie Series" that Harris finished this year. Well what you have is a 125 page short story that is ok and the rest of the over 200 pages are another story by another author! Shame on you Harris for not saying this was not just another of your short stories but a lead in for another authors short work! I and my friends were VERY disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars SUCH A RIP OFF!! 13 Oct 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
SUCH A RIP OFF!! This is a reprint of an old Charlaine Harris story that was published in 2009 in the Night's Edge anthology. I knew Harris went completely downhill in her last several Sookie Stackhouse books, but this is ridiculous. I will never again buy anything from her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would still buy Harris again but.... 30 Oct 2013
By Robin Spagnuolo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Charlane Harris has a fabulous page turner in the beginning. I really couldn't put it down until it was finished ! It probably would have made more sense to put her story last so you wanted to get to it. The Devils footprints story was a bit excruciating to get through. It had a good and exciting close to the story but the looonngg drawn out beginning was hard to get through.
