Vampire Mondays: J. Paulette Forshey

Why Vampires Are (And Always Will Be) Popular

Besides being tall, dark, handsome, mysterious, and ultra sexy in or out of formal wear? I think it’s because they have the expanse of knowledge from the years they’ve lived. They have witnessed events we mere mortals can only dream about. These walkers of the night have seen humans at their best and worst and still crave their company beyond just being the entree of a four course meal. Vampires have power, wealth, immortality, the good looks of youth and its energy. All the things many crave. Vampires hunger for unconditional love. Or that elusive lost love, or unattainable love. They travel the world indulging in all that it, and life offers up. The undead are the bad boys, and girls, we all yearn to tame. Lately, vampires have taken a turn from undead, ghoulish evil keepers of the night. Today they are totally cool, walk in the day light, some come from the mythical land of Atlantis, sparkle, or are born like the rest of us. But they all still need to consume blood. These drinkers of human’s life liquid are misconstrued , ill-fated heroes fated for greatness and love. Why are Vampires popular? I believe it’s because they call to a deep physic need in us which we recognize, crave, don’t understand, but yearn to be part of.

J. Paulette Forshey lives in a small Ohio town with her husband, a Basset Hound, and a Jack Russell who thinks she owns the place. Her mornings belong to her writing, her days are spent loving her five grandbabies, and her nights belong to her husband, the inspiration for her heroes. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Central Ohio Fiction Writers, Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal Chapter of RWA, and Northeast Ohio Romance Writers of America.

Oh,Great,another Lynsay Sands fan. I had the pleasure of meeting her & her DH when they were in Dallas a few years ago, a great lady. I'm an author with 2 books published. My second book was a vampire romance and they were created by space aliens.
IMHO, vampires are the best vehicle for any of the sub-genres of romance, especially the erotic and the comedy romance.

There is a mystery about vampires that draws us humans in and keeps us coming back for more. Vampires embody the eternal loves story we all weep over. They embrace the idea of having one soul-mate and their eternal search to find that one person who completes them and the always present torture of having known love and lost it. In my opinion, vampires are the ultimate in cool!
