I have a confession to make. Although I love to read and my reading tastes are fairly eclectic, I really, really like trashy vampire novels. OK, technically that’s not a recognized literary genre, but I’m talking about that class of urban fantasy novels with its female protagonist pictured on the cover clad in leather and wielding a sword. And I’ll admit I have dabbled in werewolves, witches, demons and even valkyries – though I draw the line at zombies. I don’t do zombies.
