Margaret L. Carter

     Margaret L. Carter read Dracula at the age of twelve, and it changed her life. The resulting fascination with horror, fantasy, and science fiction led her to become a writer, meet her future husband, and pursue degrees in English literature. A lifelong vampire fan, she earned a Ph. D. from the University of California, Irvine, with a dissertation that included a chapter on Dracula. She edited Dracula: The Vampire and the Critics, the first anthology of essays on Stoker's novel, and compiled The Vampire in Literature: A Critical Bibliography. More recently, she discusses the vampire as a naturally evolved species (like her own fictional vampires) in Different Blood: The Vampire as Alien. She has also edited a fiction zine, The Vampire's Crypt. Her stories have appeared in various fanzines and anthologies, including several of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover volumes. Margaret's first novel, Shadow of the Beast, a werewolf tale (set in Annapolis, like her Hard Shell vampire novels), appeared in 1998. Her fiction ranges over horror, fantasy, and paranormal romance. 
     She and her husband, a retired Navy Captain, have four sons, several grandchildren, two cats, and a St. Bernard named Frodo. Visit her website, Carter's Crypt, at:http://www.margaretlcarter.com.
