Do you like Vampire stories?

Did you love the Twilight series? Was it everything you wanted in a Vampire book?
-A delicate, helpless girl whose greatest ambition in life is to become a vampire before the age difference between her and her vampire boyfriend wasn’t respectable anymore. The gallant vegan vampire wanting to protect her soul?

The Suckers Trilogy is a different take on Vampires but with enough magic of its own to hold your attention.

What happens to your life if you start functioning like a vampire but are not really one? You are still human, you still retain your humanity but are not quite normal, especially your eating habits.

Jacky Dahlhaus is a realist with a great narration style and the ability to pace her storytelling in such a manner that your attention never dips. She has the audacity to take an ordinary guy, nothing like you imagine your perfect GUY would be and make him attractive, likeable and the embodiment of everything a girl wants in a guy. And bam you find yourself rooting for him to get the girl.

In Book One the world is succumbing to a sucker apocalypse. You might say the scenario bears some resemblance to the zombie apocalypse movies that Hollywood keeps producing with gun totting heroines hell bent on extracting vengeance but  Jacky’s school teacher character, (yes she is a teacher) Kate deals with the situation more realistically with the help of true friends, her wit and good intentions.

Kate finds herself falling in love with a sucker adding to the complexity of her situation. So what does it mean to live like a vampire? Will she find true love or will she just barely survive?

I look forward to the next in the sucker series… Book II- Raising a Vampire. The title itself raises questions. How is it possible given the way Book One concluded? Oh wait, I understand but not going to drop a spoiler here. Read it… Will be out soon.

FIRST THINGS FIRST Simply put I am here because I love books... I am extremely passionate about stories especially those steeped in mythical folklore, ancient myths, and legends and suffused with the magic of unique realms and supernatural worlds. I believe there is an alternate universe where magic, mysticism, and wonder still exist, a world where no reality is impossible. Discovering ourselves is an ongoing journey. From reading the next logical step was writing. I am the author of ‘The Breach’, an upcoming supernatural fantasy.For when I write about these worlds I become a part of them and learn more about myself each day. A PEEK INTO MY SOUL I am a realist but at the same time also a dreamer. To me, reading is a window into the hearts of others . Writing is the window to my imagination drawing from my glimpses of the world around me. The beauty of writing lies in the mind’s eye – what we see, the way we interpret it and finally how we translate it to paper. HOW I VIEW MY CHARACTERS To me, every character is multi-dimensional. There is no mere black or white perspective to a character. If a person is strong, we have to delve into what contributed to making them that way? Similarly, what are the fears, likes and loves of a character. That is what makes each one of them unique. It makes them what they are. No character should be just a filler in a story. If a character is evil, why is he or she that way? If a male character is not the central focus of a story, if he is okay with the girl in his life taking center stage I don’t see him as weak. I think he is a great guy and the kind that any girl would be lucky to have in their lives. Looking for the prince who rescues you from the dragon or the lecherous villain should be passé. Real men may not have muscles but they have good hearts. I write about such princes, the guys who are also okay with the girl playing hero in their life, being rescued by them too. I love reading and writing about girls and women with flaws because all real women are that way. Not the most beautiful, not the bravest, not the thinnest nor the richest. They find strength in their family, in their love. My girls do not compete against men; only circumstances and the challenges they throw up. The men who support them, stand by them are the ones I like to read and write about. Through this blog I hope to share more about inspirational characters and the beauty and richness a book contains. MY INSPIRATION Is it possible to cherish and to love something all your life without really analyzing it or understanding why? ‘Stories’ fired my imagination since I was a child….it started with my father, who would spend thirty minutes each night weaving supernatural tales of troubled ghosts in a bid to awe, shock and above all bond with his daughters. He never realized and neither did I that he was also weaving those little quirks into my personality that later on in life would go ahead and set me apart. During class breaks in school, I would share the same tales with the class, now adding my own embellishments, peaks, and lows so as to hold their attention and leave them shouting for more. As my dad got busier and we got a little older the stories seemed to have trickled off but not before transferring that hook for the beginning, the narration, the mystery and the spectacular end. Books and Movies became my magical time machines capable of drawing, pulling, and holding me. Friends and colleagues would decide to read books or watch movies after I brought to life with words what I read or saw on screen. Even love came to me through books when the first time I met my husband we fell in love over a discussion on ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’. One day I realized what I should have known all along – Stories; they lived in my soul. I had worlds to create, people waiting to be brought to life and stories to share. So I share what I love.

  1. Ohh! I used to read a lot of vampire books but stopped because they all started to sound the same… but this seems like it would be great and original!
