Author's new revised edition. The earthquakes with their falling ash, the global floods and the devastating fires arrive first. Then the worldwide plague with its stench of death. And as mankind suffers and dies out, vampires, their numbers dwindling, struggle and fight fiercely among themselves to survive in a world where there aren't enough humans to prey and feed upon. As the weeks go by they become fewer, more desperate and more ruthless. Emma, as the world disintegrates around her, finds herself alone, family all have perished...and fending off an unnatural hunger as she becomes one of the undead. Fighting her unwanted destiny she's determined to resist the bloodlust she feels, the need to kill and feed on humans, of losing her humanity, for as long as she can bear it...but she's so hungry...and the night calls.
Bio of multi-published author Kathryn Meyer Griffith (2011)
I've been writing for over 40 years now...published for 27 of those years since 1984; have fourteen novels and 7 short stories to my name...and more coming. I write traditional supernatural horror, suspense, murder mysteries and paranormal romance. I've been writing about ghosts, haunted places and evil vampires WAY LONG BEFORE Stephanie Meyer (no relation to me even though my maiden name is Meyer) and the rest of the vampire author crowd, ha, ha. And in the next two years, 2010-2012, all seven of my older Zebra and Leisure paperbacks are going to be repackaged, reprinted and rereleased -and in e-books for the first time ever- for the first time in many years. Yippie! So look for them.
I'm a wife of 32 years (husband, Russell), mother (one son, James) and grandmother (two grandchildren, Caitlyn and Joshua). I was a graphic designer in the corporate world for 23 years; and have published with Dorchester, Kensington, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books and Eternal Press. Recently, I've crossed over into e-books as well as paperbacks. I love cats and nature, classic rock and country music (my brother, JS Meyer www.jsmeyermusic.com, is a singer/songwriter and does the songs for all my self-made book trailers that are on my websites). Please visit me at any of my websites.
