My lovely daughter and I raced into the city to see Charlaine Harris on Tuesday Night. I was very excited because I have read all of her Southern Vampire Series books except the last two.
Charlaine did a Q and A where she answered questions about her books and characters including Sookie Stackhouse, Lily Bard, Harper Connelly and Aurora Teagarden. She disappointed a few readers when she said that she didn't have Bill and Eric locked in her basement - only in her mind :)
Charlaine has a great sense of humour and answered questions so graciously - even the very silly ones. She talked about working on her new book and how all of her main characters will make an appearance somewhere in this book. She has finished writing the last Sookie Stackhouse book and that will be out in 2013. Charlaine also discussed some of the ways she researches her novels and the differences between what she writes such as "Jason is a horndog" and actually seeing Jason act this way on screen (she blushed, too. I'm glad it wasn't just me). When asked which character or trait she wished she had thought of from the True Blood series, she said Jessica. We all agreed, she's a great character. She also, said that although she killed off Lafayette in the book, that when she wrote him - he wasn't "fabulous" so she understood why they didn't kill him off in the series.
