2. Nina Blackman. The mouthy, cranky, hilarious vampire in Dakota Cassidy’s Accidentally Dead. You don’t know whether to hug her or push her off the Brooklyn Bridge. Maybe you could hug her then toss her over the rail.
3. Amanda Feral. The zombie heroine of Mark Henry’s Happy Hour of the Damned embraces her new . . . er, life by looking fabulous while ingesting the homeless and the occasional hitchhiker. What? A girl’s gotta eat.
4. Sookie Stackhouse. A mind-reading waitress submersed in the paranormal because she decides to date a vampire? Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire novels rule.
5. Betsy Taylor. The shoe-loving secretary turned vampire queen threw open the doors for humorous paranormal fiction. All hail MaryJanice Davidson and her Undead series!
6. Jane Jameson. You won’t get to meet her until March 2009, but trust me when I say you’ll want Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs. Jane is a small-town librarian who’s never quite fit in with the citizens of Half-Moon Hollow. Now that she’s a vampire, she’s really an outcast, but luckily there’s the vampire welcoming committee, The Guide for the Newly Undead, and her very hot sire, Gabriel, to help her.
7. Melinda Gordon. The Ghost Whisperer puts herself in danger to save earthbound spirits. This show just makes my Friday nights (which is sad, really, but there you go).
8. Ned, the Pie Maker. Pushing Daisies is one of the coolest paranormal tales on television. The guy can only touch the dead once and only for a minute—or someone else dies in the person’s place. He raised his true love from the dead and can never touch her again. Aw!
9. Constantine. I loved this movie, mostly because Keanu Reeves was in it, but there was all that cool supernatural stuff in it like dragonfire guns, bugged-out demons, and trips to Hell.
10. Broken Heart, Oklahoma. I could hardly complete a list for paranormal lurve without including my own novels. In my series, vampire parents must deal with their new undead lifestyles and the fact that their little town has been taken over by paranormal creatures. The fourth book in the series, Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home, comes out on November 4, 2008. Find out more at http://www.BrokenHeartOK.com
