British Writer Living in California Saying Hi
« on: November 03, 2008, 01:14:59 am »
Hi there,

I'm delighted to be a new member of the BFS!

Started reading horror and fantasy at a young age and after my father sent me out to buy something "more appropriate," I came home (aged 14) with Interview with the Vampire and never looked back!

I'm a British writer living in California. My first novel has recently been published. It's called Stone Masters: A Vampire's Reckoning, and it's the first in a vampire series. Just completed the second novel.

Once again, I'm proud to be part of this society and look forward to meeting you all!
 
Yours eternal,

Vanessa

Welcome indeed.

'We still have weather...' Troo?  Was that a Bill Hicks Arizona Bay reference by any chance?

I live in Spain Vanessa so will join you in mocking these damp and chilly fools.

Hi! Welcome from a fellow newbie.

I don't really mind the weather here, as fall in Finland is far nastier. Mind you, I think Oxford had snow before Helsinki this year, which just shouldn't happen.

Hi Vanessa, great to hear from you!

We still have weather over here. You're not missing much ;)

Having just spend 10 days or so in LA and southern California, I can state that I didn't miss the wet miserable weather that greeted my return to the UK. Mind you, 80+ in Palm Springs (in Fahrenheit, of course) was far too hot for me (Jan didn't seem to mind it). Santa Barbara was more to my liking -- sun, warmth and a cool breeze...

Anyway, Vanessa: hope you enjoy BFS publications, etc.

Vanessa

Welcome, and congratulations on your success with your vampire fiction.

I've been known to nip in and out of Fangsville myself.

Best

Hey Troo,

I must admit I do love our weather here. I'm very lucky. Haven't been back to the UK for years. Hope to make it in 2010! How was your trip?   

Hi Ian,

Great to meet with another vampire author here. Just completed the second novel in the series. I love my vamps!

Have a great weekend!

Vanessa
