I know a few of you out there will be thrilled to hear that Charlaine Harris is coming to C2E2! She’s obviously most famous for the Sookie Stackhouse book series which lead the way for “True Blood.” She’s the first Literary Guest announced for the upcoming show. I’m really looking forward to who else they add. I hope R.L. Stine makes his way back!
Here’s a bit more information about Charlaine Harris:
#1 New York Times bestselling author CHARLAINE HARRIS has been a published novelist for over thirty years. Charlaine began writing mystery series—the Aurora Teagarden series, the Lily Bard series and the Harper Connelly series—but then went on to write Dead Until Dark, the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, which broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who just enjoy a good adventure. Each subsequent book about Sookie, telepathic barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, has drawn more readers. They are also the basis of True Blood, the HBO series produced by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and starring Golden Globe winner Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie. In 2014 Charlaine will debut two new projects: Cemetery Girl, a graphic novel co-written with Christopher Golden and Midnight Crossroad, a novel.
As of right now, she’s just listed as being in the Autograph area, no word on a panel.
