Soul Sisters is the story of two sisters with an extremely unique secret: one is a vampire and one is human. Though it is a vampire action series with elements of paranormal romance, I believe at the heart of it is the bond between sisters. At its core is what a bond between two sisters is really about. I get asked all the time how I came up with this idea and I always have the same silly answer: I have no clue; it was created from many different ideas.
I fell in love with books again when Twilight became required reading for me one summer (I hear some of your grumbles, but they don’t affect me anymore). I devoured the vampirism book in a few days and rushed out to read the second one. I’ve always loved vampires. I enjoy the aristocratic ones like “Interview With a Vampire” and I enjoy the originally grotesque ones such as Nosferatu. The one thing I feel the vampire world is still missing is diversity.
Although the Blade series broke the mold on diversity in vampire movies, the book world still clearly lacks it. I like reading about many different type of people, but sometimes it would be nice to read about people who look like me and my loved ones. I was inspired by a quote from Toni Morrison that said, “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” I decided that I wanted to read bout ethnic vampires from all different backgrounds so simply, I sat down and wrote it. All my books have culturally diverse characters; Soul Sister was my first novel so it always has a special place in my heart. I never had a sister, but if I did I could only hope we would be this close.
At the root of Soul Sisters is a family love story about two sisters who will go to the end of the earth to protect each other… and sometimes it involves some really hot guys!
