J. Annas Walker

Biography

I started my love affair with vampires as a kid by reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It was the only vampire book our little local library branch had back then. Then, I discovered mail order books and fell in love with the tortured characters in Interview with a Vampire. In the mid 80’s, the most amazing thing happened! My family bought a VCR, and I was finally able to see movies! All the vampire flicks I could beg for flickered across the screen, making the love affair into a passionate, lifelong relationship. Today, I write fantasy and paranormal romance and never pass up a chance to pair up vampires with the less-than-usual characters. Witches and elves currently top my list. I love weaving vampires into legends and myths where none exist. It’s my private world of the erotic, weird, and wonderful, and I invite every reader to go along for the ride.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I came up with Water's Lover while very sick. I was stuck in bed and waiting for my prescription medications to kick in while listening to Craig Ferguson's late night show. Earlier in the evening, I had been reading a book about Scottish tales and folk lore. The next morning I woke up with this idea stuck in my head. I started jotting down notes but quickly found myself writing the story. By that afternoon, the rough draft for Water's Lover was finished.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I work with a published that I'm quiet fond of, but they don't accept short stories. I wanted to branch out without going to another publisher. Being an indie author gives me the chance to write without limitations. The opportunity to self publish has never been greater than it is right now. The market is growing, and the technology is advanced enough to make it happen. In minutes, my message can be heard around the minutes! How exciting!
