Meet the Author

Charlaine Harris writes both fantasies and mysteries.

Biography

A native of the Mississippi Delta, Charlaine Harris grew up in a family of avid readers (her father was a teacher; her mother a librarian). She attended Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, graduating in 1973 with a degree in English and Communication Arts. Although she penned poetry and plays in school, her first serious foray into fiction was with two standalone novels, Sweet and Deadly and A Secret Rage, published (effortlessly!) in the early 1980s.

After her early success, Harris released the first installment in a series of lighthearted mysteries starring spunky, small-town Georgia librarian, true crime enthusiast, and amateur sleuth Aurora Teagarden. When Aurora debuted in Real Murders (1990), Publishers Weekly welcomed "a heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray." The book went on to receive an Agatha Award nomination.

Anxious for another challenge, Harris began a second series in 1996. Darker and edgier than the Teagarden novels, these mysteries featured taciturn, 30-something housecleaner Lily Bard, a woman with a complicated past who has moved to the small town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, to find peace and solitude. The first novel, Shakespeare's Landlord, was well-received. BookList raved: "Harris has created an intriguing new character in this solidly plotted story." [Much to the disappointment of her fans, Harris concluded the Lilly Bard sequence in 2001 with Shakespeare's Counselor.]

Although Harris achieved moderate success with these two series (which she laughingly describes as "cozies with teeth"), she would hit the jackpot in 2001 with Dead Until Dark, a sly, spoofy paranormal mystery starring a telepathic Louisiana cocktail waitress named Sookie Stackhouse, who falls in love with a vampire named Bill. The novel, a delightful hybrid of mystery, science fiction, and romance, was an instant hit with critics. ("Harris' Sookie has the potential to attract more readers than Hamilton's Anita Blake," raved the dark fantasy magazine Cemetery Dance.) Readers, too, adored the Southern Vampire Series and have rewarded the author with bestseller after bestseller. (In 2008, the Sookie saga came to HBO in a top-rated television adaptation, True Blood, starring Anna Paquin.)

With 2006's Grave Sight, Harris added yet another fascinating character to her stable -- a young woman named Harper Connelly whose youthful encounter with a lightning bolt has left her with the ability to find corpses and determine how they died. In addition to juggling characters and plots for her popular series, Harris has also contributed short stories and novellas to several anthologies of paranormal fantasy fiction.

Good To Know

In our interview, Harris confesses:

"I'm really a boring person. My family (my husband and three children) is the most important thing in my life. I go to bed early, I get up early. I love to go to the movies with my husband. My favorite things about finally making some money as a writer are (a) I can buy as many books as I want, and (b) I can hire a maid. The first job I had was working in an offset darkroom at a very small newspaper. I stood on a concrete floor all day and made minimum wage -- which then was $1.60 an hour. I hated it, and I learned a lot, though not necessarily about working in a darkroom. So being a writer is much better."

    more from this reviewer

    Great guide!

    This is a wonderful companion to the series. Charlaine doesn't leave anything out! Every book is broken down by day with a summary of each. The short story is pretty cool too although I wish she would have said where in the series it belonged, it took me a while to figure it out. I love love love the secret conversations with Eric & Bill. The font she chose for them is so them. I do however think she should have waited to release this book until the series was 100% completed in 2013 since she'll only be releasing 2 more books, 2012 & 2013 then it's over...

    There was only one story in this book. I wish I had know before I spent the money on it.

    Pre order 14.99

    Push the pre Order buttonand price shows, 14.99. It seems to be like a get to know Sookie and her life, friends, and crazy town of Bon Temps and Shreveport, don't forget about Eric! LOL....... I don't think I'll get it because I already am a big fan of Sookies, I don't think I'll learn too much more about Sookie that can't wait for the next "real" book. Just my opinion.

    An enjoyable series...

    ..some of the books in this series (esp. the first 4 or 5) are great fun and page turners, others are lacking, but the series overall is well worth reading. However.....how can this Companion Book (as a previous reviewer stated) have a wonderful plot, interesting characters, emotion and suspense??? It's a companion to the series, filled with lots of info, recipes and the authors thoughts, not a novel. Enjoy.

    Good Review and Companion of Series

    Great Commpanion Guide! Clears up some questions; tells where short stories fit in series; great secret dialogues between Bill and Eric and good synopsis of each book in series. Plus a bonus novella, "Small Town Wedding."

    Informative

    Can use as a good reference for anything from the series, even goes as far as to list every single character ever mentioned and give descriptions of each one. Cant wait for the next book with a storyline to come out!

    This is a great companion to the series. I just finished re-rea

    This is a great companion to the series. I just finished re-reading the series from start to end and I was pining for the release of the next installment, which won't happen for six more months, when I came across this on BN and just had to get it. I loved the short story in the beginning, that details what exactly happened at Sam's brother's wedding in Texas. The private conversations between Eric and Bill were wonderful!

    Super disapointed

    I have to say i'm super disapointed in the book! Maybe i just didnt realize what a "companion" book was suppose to be but i definetly thought it would have more stories in it about the characters. The one story that was in it was really good but it was only 80 some pages long. Kinda feel like i just wated $15!
