Most little girls play with dolls and have tea parties, but Anavey and Anastasia would rather play with severed body parts and drink their victims' blood.

Raised in a torn home, young Anavey fancies herself a vampire, only to discover she actually is descended from a line of vampires. As she reaches puberty, she begins to exhibit bloodsucking tendencies, and with the help of her younger sister Anastasia, forms an army of young, blood-thirsty vampires. The kids, who regard the adults in their community as merciless oppressors, begin a campaign of terror, intent on making the town of Martindale their own. No one is safe, especially the girls' mother, Olivia, and their abusive, overbearing stepfather, Dale Buckmeyer.

Will Anavey’s dreams of death, destruction, and conquest become a reality? Can Anastasia escape the vamprie cult before it’s too late for her and her parents? Will the angry mob from the town put an end to the insanity?

The novel Young Blood, which I wrote in close collaboration with moviemakers Mat and Myron Smith, is based on their movie Young Blood: Evil Intentions, but delves much deeper into the storyline and characters, all while retaining the crucial element of humor that makes Young Blood a brutal, rip-roaring, hysterically funny gem.
