Colleen Gleason

I can't remember a time when I wasn't writing some kind of story - from the 6th-grade version of Gilligan's Island that starred my classmates and me, to the passed-around-the-classroom story of my friends in high school meeting our favorite rock band and the adventures that ensued, to my first real attempt at writing a full-length novel, which was in college (when I should have been studying).

Off and on over the years, during my career in health care and with small business start-ups, getting married, raising two dogs and three children, I wrote - sometimes finishing the book, sometimes moving on to greener pastures.

When I became addicted to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (thank heaven for DVDs!), I thought ... hmm ... what would it be like if Buffy had been living during the times of balls and chaperones and the ton? And thus The Gardella Vampire Chronicles were born.

All five of the Gardella Vampire Chronicles have been released, and although I was sad to see them end, they ended at a place that felt right. There may be more in the future ... but as of now, I have no plans.

In the mean time, I'm working on a new historical vampire series to be released in 2011. It's called the Regency Draculia, and will come out in April 2011.

I'm also writing a fabulously different post-apocalyptic paranormal romance for Avon under the name Joss Ware. Check out the site to find out how I went from vampire hunters to zombies! The first three books are available now.

I hope you enjoy the books and would love to hear from you!
