She Might Be Hungry

by: Lint Hatcher

What better way to go off the grid than becoming a vampire?

One cool autumn afternoon in 1922, the sheriff took Dorothy away. Her family was told their 21 year old daughter was eligible to receive a new vaccine. Three days later, she was returned to them — bleeding, broken, and barren.

The sheriff had lied.

The North Carolina State Eugenics Board considered Dorothy “feebleminded and promiscuous,” a “criminal type” unfit for the human gene pool. They sterilized her against her will.

Dorothy’s father responded by turning to a power greater than the State.  Realizing the rest of his children were targets, he made them untouchable, untraceable, unknown. Police would not coerce them. Bullets would not harm them. Using generations-old occultism, he made them all a family of vampires.

Today, Dorothy is frozen for all time as a lushly figured, strawberry blonde. She has no trouble enticing prey into her arms. But did her father’s bid for power do her more harm than doctor who sliced her open in 1922? Did she lose all of her humanity that first night when she opened her eyes and knew that she was different? Doesn’t she still feel human needs? Is happiness impossible for her?

Enter Father Edward Stone. A young Catholic priest — his faith destroyed, his mind tormented by a post-traumatic disorder — Edward will become the living answer to Dorothy’s questions. Whether he likes it or not. And a series of catastrophic events will educate them both — about the power of deception, a love neither thought possible, and the kind of human beings they might still become.

Readers of gothic horror and paranormal thrillers will discover Lint Hatcher has marshaled all his powers in this, the first volume in a dynamic, new series readers are calling “Genuinely creepy, funny, and sad in all the right places.”

From the author:If you asked me to give a Hollywood pitch for my books, I’d say I write about storm chasers — that is, people who love the wind, the thunder, the lightning. These are the people who eagerly step out into the storm to feel it against their skin, to feel it pummel them and thwart their always far too tiny expectations while others cower inside. Except the storm in my books isn’t a natural one. Instead of lightning, there is the reality of the supernatural. In place of thunder, vampires, witchcraft, angels, demons. And more than once our heroes discover everything they believe is on the line. Just because they wanted to feel the storm.

I also write about people who find themselves drawn to other storm chasers. Psychological studies have shown that in a crowded room – filled with strangers, mind you – individuals who have suffered through similar traumas and are still secretly nursing deep wounds are drawn to one another without a single word. If two storm chasers find one another — does that double the chances that they will encounter the strange, the weird, the paranormal? Why not find out?
