K.A. Hambly is a Welsh author of a new vampire series called The Rise of the New Bloods. A modern vampire tale set majorly in Finland and New York.
She studied English and Media, where she wrote a thesis on Dracula (From Novel to Cinema) which she claims is (Dracula) one of her favourite novels.
Vampires and Gothic Horror have always been an interest of hers so it is no surprise that she started writing her own vampire series in 2011 after being inspired by a song she had heard. She states music and movies play a huge part in her inspiration for her books.
At the moment Kelly is editing her second novel, Darkness Rising which will be released in Spring 2013, and is also currently writing a short story called Lumi, to accompany the second and third novel.
”I am so excited about the second book because most of the story is set in my hometown of Swansea. I’m looking forward to hearing/reading what people think of it when it’s released.”
