Margaret L Carter

Margaret L. Carter specializes in vampires, having been marked for life by reading DRACULA at the age of twelve. She earned degrees in English from the College of William and Mary, the University of Hawaii, and the University of California (Irvine). Her dissertation included a chapter on DRACULA. In addition to her horror, fantasy, and paranormal romance fiction, she has had several nonfiction books and articles published on vampires in literature, including THE VAMPIRE IN LITERATURE: A CRITICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY and DIFFERENT BLOOD: THE VAMPIRE AS ALIEN. Her first vampire novel, DARK CHANGELING, won an EPPIE Award in the horror category. Other creatures she writes about include werewolves, dragons, ghosts, and Lovecraftian entities with tentacles. Her stories have appeared in anthologies such as Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover and “Sword and Sorceress” volumes. With her husband, retired Navy Captain Leslie Roy Carter, she has collaborated on a sword-and-sorcery trilogy, beginning with WILD SORCERESS.
