About Theophilus Monroe
Theophilus Monroe is a fantasy author with a knack for real-life characters whose supernatural experiences speak to the pangs of ordinary life. After earning his Ph.D. in Theology, he decided that academic treatises that no one will read (beyond other academics) was a dull way to spend his life. So, he began using his background in religious studies to create new worlds and forms of magic–informed by religious myths, ancient and modern–that would intrigue readers, inspire imaginations, and speak to real-world problems in fantastical ways.
When Theo isn’t exploring one of his fantasy lands, he is probably playing with one of his three sons, or pumping iron in his home-gym, which is currently located in a 40-foot shipping container.
He makes his online home at www.theophilusmonroe.com. Head over there and click the link at the top for a FREE BOOK! Theo loves answering reader questions—feel free to e-mail him at email@example.com if the mood strikes you!

Zombie epidemics are bad for business.
And I thought $5 + your brain was a reasonable cover charge.
But you know… supply and demand…
And functioning brains are in short supply these days.
When it came to hunting vampires, I was second to none.

They’re also image-conscious.
But zombies are unpredictable. They run on pure instinct.
They couldn’t care less about public relations.
Their numbers are growing by the hour.
Since I’m an elemental, they can’t smell me. It gives me an advantage that human hunters don’t have.
But will it be enough?
If I can’t stop them it will mean the end of humanity, the end of the world as we know it.

Because you can't stake a heartless vampire...
Book 1: Bloody Hell
It had been almost a century and a half since I last encountered anyone from the Order of the Morning Dawn. They were religious fundamentalists with the dual goal of eliminating vampires and witches.
Being both a vampire and a witch I was the embodiment of everything the Order hates. Their first attempt to eliminate me failed. Thanks to the fact that my mentor in the Craft was also a necromancer.
When they burned my heart they didn’t kill me. They unwittingly completed a spell that tied my existence to the soul of one who took my place in hell.
Now I’m heartless, literally.
Not having a heart has some advantages. It means I’m pretty resilient, especially when it comes to wooden stakes.
So long as the soul bound to my existence remained in hell, I was virtually invincible.
But the Order figured it out. They hope to redeem the soul who was damned in my stead. If they do that, I’ll meet the true death for sure. I have to capture the one damned in my place before the Order manages to liberate him from perdition. If they free him, I will die.
I have to go to bloody hell.
Book 2: Bloody Mad: A Vampire in an asylum? Like that's going to end well...

She must win the heart of a mortal...
