Christine Feehan & Project Paranormal

Penguin has an interesting online series, which I recently discovered, called Project Paranormal. The first episode I saw (actually episode 4) centered on Christine Feehan. All of her series are mentioned, but there is one video interview where she discusses her vampire series, the Carpathians. A personal tragedy was the impetus for these dark romantic tales. To see the Carpathian interview go to the Project Paranormal site.  The featured book is Feehan's Dark Slayer
(Berkley, Sept. 1, 2009) In the video below Feehan discusses her writing.

An interview with Christine Feehan.
