Anne Rice, the first romantic novelist I ever fell in love with...Gothic romance like her's is one of a kind. She writes deeply from her heart, body, mind and soul. She shares so much of her self with us, her insights, wisdom and knowledge. I learned so much from her characters about the virtues and vices of human beings. Her myth is profound and she has the ability to make things seem so black and white one moment and then in the next she blurs the lines.
