1). Tell us a bit about yourself.

Hi! I’m L. Marie Wood and I am a psychological horror author. When I’m not writing horror fiction, I am reading it. When I’m not doing that, I am teaching ways to create it. When I’m not doing that, I am watching it. Gosh, I’m scaring myself now.

2). Who is your favorite vampire author?

Anne Rice because, you know, Lestat.

3). If you had the choice, would you be a vampire?

Well, now… I guess it depends on whether you mean the Nosferatu kind or the Queen Akasha kind. I’d need to know that going in.

4). Who is your favorite vampire?

Lestat. His demeanor, his attitude… he is a mood.

5). What do you like the most about Slay?

All vampires, all the time! This is my kind of reading. I’m honored to have a story in such an incredible collection.

6). What inspired you to write your story?

It just came to me one day, as most of my stories do. I didn’t set out to write it, but when I started typing, that’s what happened.

7). Tell us a bit about your story.

The club. Enchanting beat. Swaying bodies. Vampires. ‘Nuff said.

8). What do you hope accomplish with your story?

No goal in mind other than transporting readers into a fantasy world for a little while – we could definitely use that kind of respite right now.

9). Will there be more stories of your character?

No. Yes. I don’t know.

10). How do we keep up with all things L. Marie Wood?

Check me out at www.lmariewood.com or @LMarieWood1 on Twitter.

11). What advice would you give to Slay readers about this anthology?

Read in broad daylight when the vampires are tucked away, keep some garlic handy, and stakes… you’ll need plenty of stakes…
