My name is Chris Marie Green, but some of you might know me by the pen name I use: Crystal Green. I'm so excited to be a new member of OOTB! It's trippy to be in such a talented group.
By way of introduction, I'll give you the basics: I write for Berkley, Silhouette Special Edition, Harlequin Blaze, and Silhouette Bombshell. My first vampire book, THE HUNTRESS, was published by Bombshell early this year and--this is very cool--it's just been re-released as a trade-size "two-fer" along with Erica Orloff's URBAN LEGEND. The collection is named TWICE BITTEN, and here's the gorgeous cover
If you haven't read THE HUNTRESS, this is what it's about: Camille Howard is a hunter who has very personal reasons for tracking a tribe of female vampires into the dark wilds of Transylvania--her boyfriend was captured by this feral group of creatures, and she’ll do anything to get him back. Along the way, Camille has to contend with a rival vamp hunter—a man who wants to destroy just about anything with fangs.
After writing this book, I wanted to delve even more into vampires. So I came up with another idea and, luckily, it was purchased by Berkley. The Vampire Underground trilogy doesn't have release dates yet, but the first book about an L.A stuntwoman on the skids who discovers a secret, erotically charged vampire world is finished and has been approved by my editor. She calls it a "mystery-noir fantasy," so you can guess what the tone will be like. I'll be posting more about this new series in the future, so stay tuned....
I'm looking forward to hanging out here!
