Vampires are fed by one source and unified by one law: to protect the secret of their true existence or face execution. Neither Julian’s power as a ruling vampire or his place in Charleston society could prevent the savage incident that put Natalie’s life in his hands. He must kill her before his betrayal of the secret claws its way out of her memory. But he can’t forget the heat of Natalie’s body, pressed full length against his on that fateful night. Unable to resist the lush curve of her lips and the sensual promise in her brilliant eyes, Julian’s playing for time in the riskiest game of his life.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Ten years ago, Bloodroom would have been considered too sexy to be in the horror genre but too violent to be in the romance genre. I think today’s readers are more comfortable with an edgy blending of both. Julian Mouret is the romantic male lead but he’s also the story’s villain. He’s a gorgeous predator with no moral qualms about killing. His one weakness is his attraction to a woman who fans the last flickering flames of humanity in his soulless heart. Whether he’ll spare her life at the cost of his own life is the book’s central conflict.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t wait for inspiration, but set a writing schedule and keep to it. Don’t panic if nothing comes to mind right away. Be patient. Your mind is probably so crammed with commitments and obligations that it’s not used to freedom, so give your creativity time to come out of hiding. I listen to music while playing solitaire with a real deck of cards. When the first idea strikes, I can start writing immediately because my keyboard is only inches away from my cards.
Naima Haviland likes dead people. Fictional dead people, that is, and the twisted people who make them dead (or undead). She is the author of vampire novels and a dark fantasy anthology: Bloodroom, The Bad Death, and Night at the Demontorium. She takes as inspiration the Southeast United States, including her home in the Florida Panhandle, an ocean paradise with a not-too-distant past full of eccentrics, explorers, pirates, ghosts, and UFOs.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I dreamed I was walking in the woods at night and found three wolves that were strangely languid. As I was staring at this oddity, an unseen assailant flew out of nowhere and attacked me. This attacker turned out to be a vampire who fell in love with me. That very atmospheric dream became the basis for Bloodroom.
