Confession: I am a fan of the vampire genre be it written or filmed. Often, however, when I mention my interest among Christian friends, parents, pastors, I meet with surprised comments. “Really?” “Why?’ “How did that happen?” I guess they don’t see their devout, Christian, homeschooling, PhD educated friend as the type. Add to that the fact that I’m writing a vampire novel. . . well, it doesn’t always sit well.
So I thought I’d get on my soapbox and explain a bit. My mind went off on a tangent with monster metaphors, so now I’m posting pieces from the original FB Note here for-the-record, so to speak.
