About the author (1986)

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro is a writer whose horror, science fiction, and fantasy novels have made her a cult favorite. Her most popular creation is the vampire Count Saint-Germaine, an intelligent and humane creature whose lifestyle allows him to appear in ancient Egypt in Out of the House of Life and in 18th-century Paris in Hotel Transylvania. Saint-Germaine's lover, Atta Olivia Clemens, is also a vampire and has her own successful series of books. Chelsea Quinn Yarbo is a lifelong student of history, a composer, and a fortuneteller. She brings her knowledge of all three pursuits, and much more, to her books.
