RE: Barnes & Noble Meet The Writers: Anne Rice

Anne Rice: "Interview with the Vampire... was an attempt to go into the mind of a fantasy character, the vampire, and then make that character real to the audience completely by doing it in the first-person voice, and I felt, well, if you can do that with a cape-wearing vampire, that everybody knows is simply a construct... then take the figure of Jesus Christ, in whom you believe, go into his head right from his point of view, and see if you can't make him real..."

*shudder*... That is pretty scary... She claims she'll never write about vampires again, but instead will "write only for the Lord."

So each of her books from this point forward is going to be a commercial (I mean, "evangelism")? Fantastic.
