Charlaine Harris was born in Tunica, Mississippi, and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area in the middle of a cotton field. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and, later, teenage angst, she wrote plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee and started writing novels a few years later.

After publishing two stand-alone mysteries, Harris launched a light-hearted mystery series 'starring' Georgia librarian Aurora Teagarden. The first of the eight books, Real Murders, was shortlisted for Best Novel in the 1990 Agatha Awards. In 1996, she released the first of the much darker Shakespeare mysteries, featuring the amateur sleuth Lily Bard, a karate student who makes her living cleaning houses.

Charlaine Harris then wrote the first of her Southern vampire mysteries starring Sookie Stackhouse, the quirky, telepathic waitress who works in a bar in the fictional Northern Louisiana town of Bon Temps. Dead Until Dark won the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Mystery. It also won Harris a whole new fan club of devoted readers and pushed her into the bestseller lists. The Sookie Stackhouse series, in which Sookie has to deal with vampires, werecreatures and other supernatural folk - not to mention her own complicated love life - was also instrumental in creating the urban fantasy genre.

Sookie Stackhouse also enchanted Alan Ball, creator of the smash TV show Six Feet Under, who took an option and wrote and directed the pilot episode for True Blood himself. It was an instant hit when it premiered in the US, and that success was repeated when it was first aired in Britain last year. The second season of TRUE BLOOD will start this spring.

Harris's newest series features Harper Connelly, a young woman who, after being struck by lightning, finds herself able to locate the bodies of the dead and to determine the cause of their death. There are four Harper titles (Grave Sight, Grave Surprise, An Ice Cold Grave and Grave Secret).

Charlaine Harris is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the American Crime Writers League. She is a member of the board of Sisters in Crime, and alternates with Joan Hess as president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. She is married, the mother of three, and lives in a small town in Southern Arkansas. When she is not writing her own books, she reads omnivorously!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Hello There Miss Stackhouse...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 30, 2021
I'm a big Fan of "The Sookie Stackhouse Series".

I initially found the Series in my bookshop in the Town I grew up in Essex *just before* we recieved the TV-adaption "True Blood".

When I got to reading it, I was drawn in right from the off by the World-Building we recieved & it was entirely Adult in nature in a great way.
This is definitely not for a Teenage audience, I'd say anyone 18 & up can find a lot to enjoy in this first Novel of the Series.

Our protagonist Sookie, a telepathic waitress based in the small town of Bon Temps, Southern Louisiana is an intriguing individual that is about to have her world changed not just by the new Vampire in town Bill but by a few big upheavals in her life.

We meet her family and friends along the way all from her first-person perspective. Come the Novels conclusion we have an established World written excellently by Charlaine Harris.

The rest of the Series still sits proudly on my Book Shelf today & it is not going anywhere!

I purchased another copy of "Dead Until Dark" to gift to a friend as well, I'm hoping their gonna like it...
