Wayne Hicks about this book: Eighteen year old Rachel Fair is a normal girl, working a normal job in a naormal town. At least, she was until she fell into the clutches of some near-starved vampires, and was inadvertently transformed into a creature so terrible that even the vampires themselves fear it. Rachel has become a Grue, a semi-human, immortal creature that is periodically driven to feed on the flesh of a living human being! Aware that her old life is now over, Rachel accepts the invitation of the vampires to throw in with them, an arrangement that has benefits for everyone involved. But there's one catch--despite her new nature, Rachel is still the same person on the inside, and finds it hard to deal with being a murderer.
The Grue: ANGEL is the story of how Rachel comes to grips with the changes that fate has handed to her. Along the way we get to know her vampire friends, as well, and explore a strange new kind of undead world with all of them. It is also the first book of a Trilogy, and those who have read it already are begging for the second book in the series! And many of them have actually called it "one of the very best books I have ever read!"
This book was written while I was in Federal Prison, serving a five year sentence for tax fraud. And yes, I was guilty... no protest, here, about how I was railroaded by the evil government! And yet, this may have turned out to be one of the best things to happen in my life, for I had always wanted to write novels. For most of my adult life I'd done all kinds of writing, in journalism and academic matters, but I never felt I had time to write the way I wanted to. So, when I suddenly had time, I began to write, and The Grue: ANGEL is one of four novels I completed during that time.
