Day Three: Three Day Quote Challenge

3-day-quote-challenge-badge

Day Three!  This has been fun! Going back to the Southern authors today with Anne Rice, author of Gothic Fiction, Erotic and Christian based literature.

Anne was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, although now she lives in California. Her first novel, Interview with the Vampire, was published in 1976 and has gone on to become one of the best-selling novels of all time. She continued her saga of the Vampire Lestat in a series of books, collectively known as The Vampire Chronicles, which have had both great mainstream and cult followings. Interview with the Vampire was made into a motion picture in 1994, directed by Neil Jordan, and starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Kirsten Dunst and Antonio Banderas. Anne’s novel, Feast of All Saints about the free people of color of ante-bellum New Orleans became a Showtime mini series in 2001 and is available now on DVD. The script for the mini series by John Wilder was a faithful adaptation of the novel. Anne Rice is also the author of other novels, including The Witching Hour, Servant of the Bones, Merrick, Blackwood Farm, Blood Canticle, Violin, and Cry to Heaven.

Her home in the Garden District was the setting for the Mayfair Witches. I once had the pleasure of attending an event there. And I have read everything she has published.

Anne’s latest book is Prince Lestat a “true sequel” to Queen of the Damned. The book was released on October 28, 2014.
