Derek Gunn was born in Ireland in 1964. He grew up in Dublin and graduated from the College of Marketing in 1986. Most of his working life has been in the IT/Telecommunications industry and he currently works for a major global telco as a specialist consultant designing communications networks and solutions for businesses.
His interest in writing fiction came about from being a young voracious reader of great storytellers such as Alastair Reynolds and Edgar Rice Burroughs. As a young teenager he discovered Stephen King, James Herbert, Graham Masterton and many more great modern genre writers and became totally hooked on horror and adventure stories.
In his mid-teens he began writing short stories. College, career, marriage and a young family took all his energy and focus but, around 8 years ago, he took pen in hand, once again...He is married and (still) lives in Dublin with his wife and three children and his shadow, Mac - an adorable, faithful golden lab (think Marley and me and you get the picture...)

A very slow read for me and unfortunately didn't keep my interest much. I was hesitant to purchase a vampire novel seeing as how twilight has ruined it for the rest of us. Luckily this book had none of that and it stayed true to its form. I would suggest this book only if you are a really hardcore vampire fan.
