Meet the Author


Vee has been a Vampire Diaries fan since the series' original publication, when a classmate passed her a copy of The Awakening in seventh grade homeroom. She's a History major dropout, former military brat and preacher's kid, and can often be found at concerts. She currently resides in Arizona with her (patient, supportive, TVD fan) musician husband and a ridiculous amount of CDs, records, books, and DVDs.

Red has been a fan of the Vampire Diaries since 1993, when he found the series in Secondary School. He studied Literature at University, and is a keen amateur photographer who dreams of one day owning a DSLR camera (preferably in a sexy, matte black). Red is British and lives somewhere along the east coast of the United Kingdom, not far from the sea. He likes cats, funky socks and English Breakfast tea.

Red and Vee are co-editors of the popular site Vampire-Diaries.net. The site was established February 2009. The site averages around 500,000 unique visitors a month.

The site encompasses information on the books and TV show, includes an up-to-date news blog, a comprehensive Vampire Diaries wiki, a Media Gallery, and an active discussion forum. Vampire-Diaries.net also has more than 7,000 followers on Twitter.

    Bridget's Review

    For those who don't know, I'm obsessed with The Vampire Diaries. When I laid eyes on A Visitor's Guide to Mystic Falls, I knew I had to have it. I really like having background knowledge and being able to share what I know with other Vampire Diaries addicts. This would make the perfect gift for The Vampire Diaries addict in your life. It's well written and lots of fun!
