Chattanooga Times Free Press is currently running an interview with Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, who appeared at Chattacon this past weekend. Casey Phillips conducted the interview.
Yarbro is an acclaimed writer of more than 70 books, but is best known for her 24-book “Saint-Germain” horror fiction series. She has received numerous accolades for her work, including the lifetime achievement award from the Horror Writers Association, the Grand Master Award from the World Horror Association and a literary knighthood from the Transylvanian Society of Dracula.
Asked about her intention when she started writing the “Saint-Germain” series, Yarbro says, “I wanted to push Dracula as far to the positive and still have a recognizable vampire. I also wanted to do series of books that are essentially about the lives of women. Yes, Saint-Germain is the point-of-view character, but it’s always about the women he’s interacting with.”
