In 1650 Simone Gireaux was a widower living with her late husband's family. Then the Marauders descended on the town. She woke the next day, her village destroyed, her family dead. And the sun burning her skin. She had no one to teach her how to be a vampire. Yet she persevered and survived for 360 years to live in California and meet Justine Kroft in my novel Blood Justice. An Accidental Vampire is the first chapter in her odyssey.
