"I'd never kill anyone with hair that fabulous."

Gerry Bartlett writes a terrific humorous paranormal series featuring a beautiful full-figured vampire. Here's what Gerry has to say about becoming one of the undead herself...
Since you write about vampires, if you had the choice, would you want to be one?
"Lots to consider here. First, my heroine, Glory St. Clair, was turned when she had a few extra pounds to lose and then she was stuck like that. So first, I’d have to diet down to a perfect weight. And that’s obviously not going to happen. I have the self-control of a mosquito in a nudist colony. Then there’s the whole liquid diet thing. Sorry, but I love my food too much to give it up. What fun is it to live forever without steak and a baked potato? Not to mention chocolate truffles. I have to have crunch in my diet too, just like my heroine. She suffers just to taste the occasional Cheeto.
On the serious side, the immortality thing is a big deal. If I were given the option, I wouldn’t want to be turned vampire. No way. Not unless everyone I know and loved would live forever too. I can’t imagine watching them die while I lived on. There could be nothing worse.
Hey, this is getting way too gloomy now. In REAL VAMPIRES HATE THEIR THIGHS, coming in February, Glory has her pick between two hot guys. Now that’s what I’m talking about. I write fiction, folks. And there’s nothing more fun than escaping into a book where all your dreams can come true. So, sure, I’d live and look young forever. I’d have hot guys at my feet and elsewhere, if you get my drift. And figure out a way to eat too. If I’m writing this story, then I can make it happen. Right?" ~ Gerry Bartlett
Hee Hee Hee. Yeah, there's a reason I love Gerry & Glory.
