A Vampire Obsession?

“Dahlia is not your typical high school senior. While most teenagers view school as a drudgery that must be put up with, she revels in it. Only something is interrupting Dahlia’s normal pattern. Someone has decided to start murdering teenage girls at Eduli Springs High School and Dahlia suspects there is something far darker behind the atrocities than just a teenager’s frustrations”. From “The Shulim Cycle: The Book of Dahlia” by Lynn Perretta. On the next edition of Life Elsewhere, we talk with the author and ask, “Why did a nice, quiet, middle-class teenager feel compelled to write about Vampires?”
