David & Sue talk to a great Australian storyteller and author, Narrelle Harris. She was born in Newcastle but is now a Melbourne-based writer of crime, fantasy and vampire novels and short stories. She also writes romance and erotica and a lot of Sherlock Holmes! In 2009 she was the regular book reviewer/interviewer/commentator for The Outland Institute’s radio show on JOY 94.9. The show is now on indefinite hiatus, but you can still download the 22 episodes on the JOY site or from iTunes.

Her latest book is Ravenfall which is a queer paranormal romance/thriller. It’s out now and you can find out where to get it and read an extract of the book at Narrelle’s website.

Just look at the cover and you’ll want to buy it like David!! She describes the book as follows:

“What would you do for love?

Would you kill? Would you die? Would you give up your soul?

British soldier, Dr James Sharpe, returned from Afghanistan a changed man. Like most war veterans haunted by deadly choices and the horrors of battle, James struggles against his demons. Unlike other ex-soldiers, his demons are real. Transformed in the heat of a desert battlefield, James Sharpe is now a vampire.

Struggling London artist, Gabriel Dare, has his own secrets – like who he really is, and why he lived on the streets before lodging with Dr Sharpe; like the ghosts he used to see, that made others question his sanity.

James knows Gabriel is the best thing in his life, but questions his ability to love and fears he’s a danger to all. Gabriel knows there’s something different about his enigmatic landlord, but can’t deny his attraction.

When some of Gabriel’s street friends go missing, he discovers that London is full of monsters – real, vicious, otherworldly monsters.

Risking all for love, James and Gabriel join a clairvoyant cop and an unusual Earl to uncover the truth; for it seems the vampire who sired James is back in London – with a diabolical agenda that threatens the entire nation.”
