Not at all rude! It bugs me when authors don't check facts. I read one book by a NYT best-selling author who said the California Gold Rush happened in 1859. Then why is the San Francisco football team called the 49ers?
      What you're reading now is only the first book of the Kandesky Vampire Chronicles. There are another seven and I'm working on the next one right now.

Thanks for your comment! Yes, Maxie is a top-notch professional in her job...but she's thrown when she finds herself in an unknown situation (the Kandeskys) and even worse when she falls for one of them. She's pursued her professional life at the loss of a personal life. This isn't an area where she feels very competent so she's floundering. On top of which, she's had much of her freedom of movement curtailed with demon escorts.
      This is only the first book in the Kandesky Vampire Chronicles. There are eight books so far and I'm writing the ninth one now. Maxie does grow.

Yep, seven more and I'm writing another one, SNAP: I, Vampire. Most readers have told me they think the story gets better! And some reviewers have said, "Just sit and write!"
      I confess, I'm pretty crazy about Maxie, Jean-Louis, Nik, Jazz and all the rest...particularly the demons!
