National bestselling author Heidi Betts loves all things scary and paranormal. . .though she's not a big fan of things that go bump in the night. (Hello! Sleeping, here.) When she's not writing about vampires (among other things), she often dreams of being an undead creature of the night--if only so that she can sleep all day, stay up all night, and never age another minute or gain another pound. The drinking of blood doesn't necessarily appeal, but it's something she thinks she could get used to. Plus, she hears it tastes like chicken. For news, information about upcoming books, and tons of mischievous fun.
