Are the characters in the Lily Drake novels total figments of my imagination?  Hardly.  If you're close to me, more than likely one of my characters has some of your personality traits - or maybe even your name.

Lily is the complete badass I want to be.  She does exactly what I would do in her situation, yet she has the ability to decimate anything.  It is wishful thinking on my part.  Lily is my alter-ego.

Rose has moments of likeness to that of my own mother.  She's smart, beautiful, rational and well-planned.  She can also be very proper.  My mom, she's one classy chick.  Undoubtedly, she would probably roll her eyes at me calling her that, yet it's true.

Mathias and Val both have qualities and are a blend of one particular man.  He is hard-headed and can wear a suit well, like Mathias, but is also completely uncouth and carefree like Val.  Like both men, he is completely maddening at times, yet completely lovable at others.  Writing one character would never justify his complex personality, so I had to make two.

Keaton... it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out he is much like my son at that age. He's funny, yet sarcastic and incredibly talented.

In Book Three, you will meet two new allies of Lily - Susan and Vit.  They are quite the characters, just like the people who inspired them.  

About the Author:
T. Michelle Nelson became enamored with vampires at an early age when she watched George Hamilton in “Love at First Bite.” As she got older, her tastes leaned more toward the dark and morose, but her love of all things vampire never wavered.  Little has changed over the years, except now T.  makes up her own macabre stories of the undead… mixed with a splash of romance, tough heroines and tons of dark humor. 

T. Michelle Nelson is a native of Benton, Kentucky and a graduate of Murray State University.  Currently she resides in a small town in Ohio, which is also the setting of her Lily Drake series.  The first two books in the series, Life and Death of Lily Drake and 'Til Death Do Us Part, are currently available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon or any of your other favorite online bookstores. A short story prequel The First Time is also available. Death Warmed Over, the third and final book of the series will release in late June.

When she isn’t writing, you can usually find her spending time with her son, singing out of key, watching B-Horror movies or discussing world problems with her little dog, Toadie.
