Author Charlaine Harris Talks Closing the Book on “True Blood”

Charlaine is moving on.BY Scott Huver

Charlaine Harris, the author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, is about to squeeze the last drop of “True Blood” – but she’s not about to slink quietly into the shadows.

“On the page, I have two more [Sookie] books,” Harris tells PopcornBiz of her plans to conclude the vampire saga that served as the source material for the hot HBO series. “I’m writing Book Twelve and then there will be Book Thirteen. And then I’ll think of something else new and wonderful to do.”

And while fans of fang-banging in Bon Temps won’t want to hear it, the novelist expects to bring the entire franchise to a definitive end. “I think it’ll be total closure,” she says. “I don’t go back to things once I’ve finished them. That’s kind of what I do. I don’t want to write Sookie after I get stale. Yeah, I’ll miss them, I’m sure, because I have lived with them for quite a long time – 12 years now. And it did take two years to sell the first book. But I think writers like to do different things. At least this writer does.”

  1. No don’t stop writting about Sookie Stackhouse! Stale, you will never write stale books Mrs. Harris and certainly not a Sookie Stackhouse one. Keep the ideas comming and anyone especially you as a writter cab bat one out of the park. Keep up the great work, your an awesome writter, I wish I could only write as great as you do. Have a great summer and have fun with those puppies your always talking about.
