The Vampire’s Bard

While reading old vampire tales I came across an Irish legend, the story of Dearg-Due, the Red Bloodsucker. As the legend goes, she killed was forced to give up a peasant lover to marry her father’s choice. And…since those things never go well, the whole thing ended in tragedy.

Well, in my retelling, it wasn’t actually a crass peasant boy…but a lovely and cultured travelling bard, who happened to be a woman.

The tragedy remains the same, dead husband, dead bard, dead, well, undead Dearg. With a prophesy under her belt, she waits for her love to come again. Finally her travels take her to Hollywood, California and the fabulous Sunset Strip.

The Vampire’s Bard is available at and all your favorite online bookstores
