Author of Interview With The Vampire

In 1976 Anne Rice published Interview With The Vampire, and within a decade the book became the best-known vampire novel since Bram Stoker's Dracula. She has written several novels exploring sexual and romantic desire and the spiritual world, and is a famous New Orleans resident with a devoted fan base. Rice has also published novels under the pen names Anne Rampling and A.N. Roquelaure. In 1998 she had a reawakening of her Catholic faith and abandoned the dark subjects that made her famous. Her 2005 book, Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, tells the tale of Jesus as a boy. By 2010, however, she had publicly renounced Christianity for political reasons.
