I love the adventure of writing! The research is fun and always reveals unexpected things, like when I went to a used bookstore for more research on the French Revolution, and I found a bit of history that isn’t commonly known but was perfect for Vampire Princess of New York.
I found a conspiracy that involved the Prince of France that basically said that there were those that successfully smuggled him out of the Square du Temple, a medieval fortress. The official history books say the prince died in the Temple at age 10. The theorists say maybe not. There were inconsistencies between the actual size of the prince and the dead boy found in his cell.
Later imposters came forward saying they were Louis XVII (Prince Louis Charles). With the execution of his father, he would then be king. There were also living relatives of the Royal Family who were living in other countries at the time. It turned out none of the supposed princes was the young king. When you think of it, why would Prince Louis Charles reveal himself in this dangerous time filled with intrigue and murder?
At the beginning of the book, we learned the Vampire Princess Noblesse Vander Meer is obsessed with collecting furniture that once belonged to the doomed King Louis XVI. Her human mother went missing before the revolution, and Noblesse in her search at the time met all the wrong people. She was in the mob that stormed the prison known as the Bastille.
Noblesse’s story is embroiled with danger, intrigue, passion, and lies. Just when you think you’re in the clear, you’re not. It’s the tale of a woman who happens to be a vampire princess coming into her own, unraveling her past, and fighting for her future.
