Yay a series in which vampires actually act like vampires and not sparkly vegetarian things 🙂 This series is available in an omnibus format as well as the typical 3 book trilogy 🙂
The strength of Sloane’s heart is about to be put to the ultimate test.
After the Eclipse – the night vampires began openly slaughtering human victims – everything changed. Out of fear, the government salvaged what remained of the human population and enclosed them in massive, security-laden cities called White Sectors, while marking the vampire infested territory as Red Sectors.
When seventeen-year-old Sloane McAllister’s twin brother disappears, she seems to be the only one who thinks he isn’t dead, and she vows to stop at nothing to find him. Gathering her courage, she braves the Red Sector to search for clues to his whereabouts. By chance, she encounters Aden, a handsome, charismatic vampire with a hidden agenda. He turns Sloane against her will and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life.
But the vampires themselves are the least of her problems. A war is brewing between the humans and vampires, along with a growing web of deceit and betrayal. And before it’s all over, loyalties will be tested, hearts will be broken, and no one’s lives will ever be the same.

1. How long have you been writing? Did you always know you wanted to be a writer? I started writing a few years ago after having a really vivid dream. I had the same dream a few times, so I decided to write it down, and eventually, it expanded into a whole story. That’s when I made the decision to start seriously studying storytelling. That dream went on to become my first novel, an epic fantasy I’ll never end up finishing. *lol* But it got me writing, which I’ve never given up. And no, I didn’t always want to be a writer. I was active in the arts, but I hadn’t considered writing as a career until much later in my life.
2. Why did you decide to write about vampires? Vampires are one of my favorite paranormal creatures. (And I think a lot of people would agree with me!) They’re alluring, sexy, dark, mysterious. There’s also a certain romanticism that goes along with them, which lends itself well to paranormal romance.
3. Do you have a favorite author? That’s a hard question to answer! But one of my favorite authors is Richelle Mead. I love her worlds and her characters. I know when I pick up one of her books, I’m going to have fun. Her stories are so easy to sink into.
4. When’s your favorite time of day to write? Because of my job, I usually end up writing at night. It also helps me to relax and get my mind off the day.
5. Tell us a little about The Red Sector Chronicles. In a nutshell, it’s the story about a teenage vampire-hunter-turned-vampire and her adventures. =P That’s the super-short version. It’s a young adult trilogy that’s a mash-up of dystopia, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy, some of my favorite genres. There are laughs, gasps, and swooning-over-book-boyfriends to be had. If you’re a fan of Vampire Academy or Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series, you’ll probably like this series.
6. What sort of things do you like to do for fun? I love to draw, manipulate images in Photoshop, and watch movies. Oh, and read. Of course, reading.
7. Which is your favorite: paper books or ereaders? I’ll admit I’m something of a pretty-cover collector. I love reading in both formats, but if a cover really draws my attention or if the book captivated me, I’ll want a hard copy to add to my collection. I also love the smell of books, as strange as it sounds. It reminds me of my childhood. I grew up with a lot of books, which I usually read instead of doing my math homework, much to the disgruntlement of my grandmother.
8. Do you have any advice for new writers? Read. A lot. And not just within your genre, but outside your genre. Also read as many writing references as you can, and practice what you learn. That’s the key. And speaking of practicing, write every day. Not edit. Write. Pour new words onto the page. That’s how you perfect your craft.
