The Vampire, The Handler, and Me by Eileen Sheehan
Hello, my name is Eileen Sheehan and I'm a fantasy romance author. I live with my foot on the edge of the world of paranormal because I'm a professional psychic by day and author by night. The experiences I have had and learned about through readings for others have given me some great ideas for my stories.
I haven't yet met up with a vampire or a werewolf, that I'm aware of, but I like to write about the “creatures of the night”. The difference is that I enjoy combining human traits that I find alluring, sexy, attractive and desirable with some of the folklore attached to the creature. Take the vampire, for instance. My vampire novel features vampire Nevi who falls head over heels in love with a handler who actually kills vampires. Lucky for him she finds him irresistibly sexy! Of course there's another handler vying for her attention which creates a very human situation of having to choose one over the other. It doesn't help that they're both good looking!
I think it would be fun to know how many situations in the story resemble something you or someone you know actually went through!

“My name is Nevi, Nevi Sharpe,” he said with a deep, sultry accent. “May I ask with whom I have the pleasure of sharing scratch-off tickets?”
I wanted to answer him but I was still stuck on stupid. I opened my mouth to speak and absolutely nothing came out.
He was just a man, after all. What was my issue?
I just couldn’t move past the sense of magnificence that permeated the air around him. It was both electrifying and nerve wracking.
“You have a phone call,” blurted the bland voice of Miss Congeniality as she approached my newly discovered god-man with a cordless phone.
“Please excuse me,” he murmured in my direction as he snapped the phone from the clerk’s hand, obviously unhappy to be disturbed.
“Lizzy. Lizzy Ewing,” I forced past my lips as he stood up. “My name’s Lizzy Ewing.”
I could feel flames consume my cheeks when I realized how desperate my voice must have sounded. He studied me with dancing eyes—momentarily forgetting his annoyance about the phone call.“Nice to meet you, Lizzy Ewing,” he said warmly. “Please excuse me.”
With that, he lifted the phone unceremoniously to his ear and disappeared through a doorway behind the counter. I assumed it led to his office. At the faint sound of another door shutting behind that door, I felt I assumed right.
The clerk shuffled through the array of lotto tickets spread out on the counter in front of me with a notable smirk on her broad, acne infested face before looking up at me. “That’ll be twenty-five dollars,” she stated smugly.
I stood there looking at her for a brief moment while it registered with me…I was getting stuck with the entire bill of my not so private scratch-off tryst!
