Top Ten published on December 21, 2012.
Here’s my Top Ten Vampires, though to be honest, when I started I ended up with way more than just ten (not that I have a thing about vamps . . .*g*) so the list took a bit of whittling down. In the end these vamps are the ones who fascinate me most, and who tend to be on the witty, sarcastic, wise-cracking side of things. Oh, and most of them also appear to be crazy and/or enthusiastically violent. I have no idea what that says about me . . . other than I think vampires are top-of-the-food-chain predators, and therefore should act accordingly, albeit with a side order of (left-over) human emotions, which adds some personal angst and complex conflict into the character mix (one-dimensional monsters can be pretty boring). And while these are my Top Ten Vampires, I know I wouldn’t want to meet any of them in Real Life (I’m way too much of a scaredy cat), but in fiction— hell yes!
