Dearest Venefi (Ancient Vampyre bloodline in Vampyres -the first of Vampyre kind),
I have been a storyteller my whole life, since I was a girl my favorite thing has been to listen to stories, read them and even write them from as young as 7 or 8 years old.
I have a chronic autoimmune illness with many names; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS) and most recently Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disorder (SEID).
My CFS makes writing very difficult, as cognitive function is VERY poor and I can only write for a few hours (2-4) per day and sometimes not at all.
I have managed to write 73,108 words since 2007 (in book 1, other books also have a significant amount of notes and even some chapters). Writing is my life, it is my passion, it gives me a place to escape from my broken body and gives me hope, that not all of me has been consumed and taken away by this messed up immune system I have.
I really hope the Vampyres Series, The Fire Bird Ballads, The Vallerie Flynn Series and Inconvenience & Oxygen inspire you and take you away… these works takes me away from my life every day and gives me purpose.
