Tony-Paul de Vissage

Tony-Paul de Vissage's parents took him to many movies when he was a child.  In fact, his first movie memory is of being six years old, viewing the old Universal horror flick, Dracula's Daughter on television, and being scared sleepless--and he's been paying them back ever since, by writing about vampires  Though the author didn't begin writing horror--or any other genre--until after graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from a well-known Southern University, and a second in Graphic Art, that one particular interest survived a liberal arts' education and the scorn of friends and family.  Marriage, parenthood, divorce, and a variety of occupations ranging from stage work to doctor's assistant took precedent over writing for several years, as did moving from one United States coast to another.  Eventually that first story--a short story about the hapless vampire Clan Andriescu--was published.  A voracious reader whose personal library has been shipped more than 3,000 miles, Tony-Paul has read hundreds of vampire tales and viewed more than as many movies.
